The awards will simulcast live on BET, BET Her and CBS on June 28. This is the first time that the awards will be broadcasted across ViacomCBS Networks.

Drake will be the leading nominee this year with six nominations. Right behind him is Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch with five nominations each.

To everyones surprise Kanye West is nominated for the Dr. Bobby Jones best gospel/ inspirational award. Kirk Franklin, The Clark Sisters, John P. Kee, PJ Morton, and Fred Hammond are also nominees in this category.
