Nicki Minaj

After killing her performance at Hot 97’s Summer Jam on June 1, Nicki Minaj will grace the stage at the 2014 BET Awards.

She, along with Jhene Aiko, John Legend and August Alsina, have been added to the line-up.

Nicki Minaj is nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

Earlier this month, BET announced that Lil Wayne, Lionel Richie, Pharrell Williams, Drake, Usher, Trey Songz and Jennifer Hudson will perform also.

Mack Wilds and K Michelle will join Mary J Blige, Trey Songz and Jennifer Hudson.

BET tells Billboard that Tracy Morgan will not be attending the award show following his accident. He’s recovering from being critically injured in a New Jersey highway crash.

The 2014 BET Awards, hosted by Chris Rock, will air live from LA’s Staples Center on Sunday, June 29 at 8 pm EST.
