June 7, 2017

The 2017 BET Awards are going down on June 25 at 8 p.m. at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and the network has announced one of this year’s highest honoree will be the legendary R&B group New Edition.

The pioneering group from Boston, consisting of Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is typically given to recognize contributions over the whole of a career, rather than or in addition to single contributions. Make you wonder if the New Edition documentary that aired recently have something to do with it?
