Artists, BET Awards Team Prep For Jackson Tribute

Recording artists and other entertainers previously confirmed for Sunday’s BET Awards, including Jamie Foxx, are reportedly working on Michael Jackson related tributes. In a release issued Friday, BET Awards executive producer Stephen Hill confirmed that there would indeed be a tribute and a number changes to the show. “This will be a show heavy on Michael Jackson’s memory. I think what you’re going to find is that acceptance speeches for awards will have nothing to do about the artists themselves, but about the influence that Michael Jackson had on them,” said Hill. In addition to speeches and presentations, Hill says several artists have approached the network, asking how they could help with a tribute. As previously announced, the BET Awards 09′ are set to place Sunday, June 28 Live! from Los Angeles Shrine Auditiorium.
