Will Smith to Debut New Song at BET Awards 2024

Will Smith is set to make a significant comeback by performing a brand-new song at the BET Awards 2024. This will be his first major solo performance since the infamous slap incident at the Oscars on March 28, 2022, where he confronted Chris Rock over a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The awards show will air live on BET on Sunday, June 30, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

A Night to Remember

Hosted by Taraji P. Henson, the event promises to be unforgettable. Grammy-winning singer Usher will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement BET Award for his outstanding contributions to the music industry.

Star-Studded Lineup

The stage will feature performances by Ice Spice, Sexyy Red, Latto, Ms. Lauryn Hill & YG Marley, Muni Long, Shaboozey, Tyla, and Victoria Monét. Additional appearances include Cardi B, Davido, Gunna, the Roots, Common, Queen Latifah, and the Jungle Brothers.

Will Smith’s Comeback

Smith’s return to the BET Awards stage is highly anticipated. After his last public performance with J Balvin at Coachella, fans are eager to see him back in the spotlight. “From his start as a rapper to ‘The Fresh Prince’ to being a box office king, Will Smith is truly a global icon,” said Connie Orlando, executive VP at BET.
