The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: The BET Awards will be this weekend and The411 will be watching closely but not for the stars and the fashion but to support Kentucky native and former Bachelor contestant Julie Smith. She will be the host in the CentricTV Fan Fest Pavilion as part of the BET Experience at L.A. LIVE !!!
Julie has worked hard to get to this point in her career and finally she's getting the break she deserves. The two day music and entertainment event will draw some of the top stars in the business today leading up to the BET Awards this Sunday. Julie says "I'm honored to have been selected to host the stage at the Centric Fan Fest Pavilion. Centric is a sister station to BET and features music, movies, reality shows and specials for adults, along with the rights for Soul Train and the associated awards show. On the Centric stage, I will be interviewing guests like Brian McKnight, Raphael Saadiq, Bell Biv Devoe, Earth Wind & Fire and many more. It's going to be a lot of fun and a great experience. It won't look bad on my resume either."
The BET Awards hosted by actor, comedian Chris Tucker. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday. If you plan to attend the BET Awards in L.A. send me your photos at The411@whas11.com. You can also follow me on Twitter @Sherlenemediapr.
