NEW YORK, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- BET Networks has just added more exciting talent to its list of presenters and performers for the BET AWARDS 12. Jamie Foxx, Quentin Tarantino, Tyler Perry and Laz Alonzo will join previously announced presenters Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good and superstar host, Samuel L. Jackson. Added to the already stellar line up of musical performers are BET's SUNDAY BEST judge Yolanda Adams, Season 4 winner Amber Bullock, Season 2 winner Y'Anna Crawley and Season 2 1st runner-up Jessica Reedy.

Previously announced top performers include D'Angelo, Usher, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and G.O.O.D. Music, all performing live at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday, July 1, 2012 at 8:00 pm*.

For the third year in a row, BET Music Matters artists will have the distinction of gracing the BET AWARDS stage. BET's Music Matters will again cast the spotlight on new talent who are on their way to being the next BET superstars. Jennah Bell and Charles Perry will take the stage during BET AWARDS 12 to give the world a sneak peek of their talents. Hailing from Oakland, CA, Jennah Bell is a singer, songwriter and musician whose sound consists of alternative, folk and soul. She recently completed the "Making Music Herstory" project and is living in New York City. Brooklyn native Charles Perry was once described by Luther Vandross as "ferocious" and predicted a long-lasting solo career at the age of 16 years old. With the experience of performing by superstars like the late Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Charles is now focused on his upcoming solo album.

The BET Awards show airs this Sunday, July 1, at 8PM ET/PT, live from The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Looks like it'll be quite a night for some.
