Chris Tucker to host 2013 BET Awards
BET has decided to go in a new direction for the BET Awards. After having Kevin Hart host the ceremony for the last couple of years, the network has announced that the 2013 BET Awards will be hosted by none other than Chris Tucker!
“I am honored to be asked to host this year’s BET Awards. I’m looking forward to being part of a really great show,” Chris said in a statement.
“We cannot wait for Chris to set fire to the BET Awards stage with his unique brand of mayhem. Chris Tucker is crazy…with class,” said BET President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill. “We’ve been chasing him for years and we couldn’t be happier that he is hosting the show in this special year: the year we embark on the three–day long BET Experience.”
