Season 13

Hosted by actor and comedian Chris Tucker, the BET Awards '13 took place at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday 30 June.

The show also included exciting performances by Mariah Carey, R. Kelly, Nicki Minaj, Miguel, India.Arie, Ciara, Chris Brown and Kendrick Lamar.

Hollywood actresses Angela Bassett, Gabrielle Union, Paula Patton and La La Anthony were among the talented line-up of presenters.

Miami Heat basketball star Dwyane Wade was honoured with the Humanitarian Award, while R&B singer/songwriter Charlie Wilson received the prestigious Cadillac Lifetime Achievement Award.

This year, the activity and excitement expanded with the first ever BET Experience at L.A. LIVE! This three-day festival filled with comedy, gospel and soulful music concerts, seminars, film screenings, 106 & Park tapings and so much more built anticipation for the finest BET Awards show yet.

For the fourth year in a row, BET Music Matters artists had the distinction of gracing the BET Awards stage. BET's Music Matters again cast the spotlight on new talent who are on their way to being the next BET superstars.

Austin Brown and Curtis Fields took the stage during BET Awards '13 to give the world a sneak peek of their talents.

Austin Brown is a 27-year-old musician, singer, and songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. His stunning sound combines the soul and harmony of late 70s R&B with the rhythms of modern electronic pop. Among his major influences are ground breaking music legends Prince, George Michael and his family, The Jacksons.

Hailing from Montgomery, Alabama, Curtis Fields is a singer whose songs are the perfect blend of soul-searching and emotion.

While attending Fisk University he joined up with the Fisk Jubilee Singers, with whom he travelled to Africa, India and Europe. Today, he is signed to Epic Records and working on his debut album.

Leading the pack of A-list nominees were hip hop artist Drake, with an impressive 12 nominations including Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Video of the Year; close behind was breakthrough hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar and rapper 2 Chainz tied with 8 nominations.

A$AP Rocky had 5 nominations; while Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake and Miguel face off with 4 nominations each in the categories of Best Collaboration, Coca-Cola Viewers' Choice Award and Video of the Year.

This year's Video of the Year Award had a phenomenal line-up of 10 nominees including Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Miguel and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, all vying to get their hands on the sought-after trophy.

Six African musicians were nominated for honours in this year's awards in the Best International Act: Africa category: 2Face Idibia (Nigeria), Toya Delazy (South Africa), Donald (South Africa), Ice Prince (Nigeria), R2Bees (Ghana) and Radio and Weasel (Uganda).

About the BET Awards

The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports and other fields of entertainment over the past year.

The awards are presented annually, and they are broadcast live on BET.

BET commissioned Artist/Sculptor and Hip Hop culture icon Carlos Mare139 Rodriguez to design the Award sculpture.

The BET Lifetime Achievement and Humanitarian Award recipients, along with the nominees for other categories are announced in a press conference. At the awards ceremony a mini-documentary is shown covering the honorees' life. The awards are given out separately.

The BET Lifetime Achievement Award is given a veteran artist or group who has made notable contributions to the music industry. The honoree is paid tribute to by current popular singers who perform the honoree's most recognized songs. The honoree will usually perform themselves after being paid tribute.

In 2002, at the second annual BET Awards, the category for the BET Award Humanitarian Award was created. The Humanitarian Award is given to a celebrity philanthropist who donates their time and money to a charitable cause.
