Drake leads BET nominations and Whitney Houston hologram performance cancelled

Drake leads the nominees for the 2016 BET Awards which were just announced yesterday. Drake leads with 9 nominations. Beyoncé has 5 nominations. The BET Awards air next month. Speaking of award shows, The Billboard Music Awards will air this Sunday on ABC. Artists scheduled to perform are Britney Spears, Pink, and Ke$ha. Are their any black performers? But there are black hosts; Ciara and Ludacris. Do you all remember when Ciara and Ludacris read off the nominee list on live TV and Ciara didn't want to read Future's name on the teleprompter? Ha! But your son's name is Future! What's the difference? Speaking of Ludacris, he is back on the set for "Furious 8" which I believe will be released next Summer. It looks like we won't be seeing the first Whitney Houston hologram performance that was set to air on "The Voice" Monday. Whitney's estate had the performance pulled after it leaked online. The performance featured a duet with the show's judge Christina Aguilera. Many felt that the Whitney Houston in the hologram didn't resemble the late singer while others felt it did. I'm kinda split on the whole thing. Pat Houston spoke out and said she felt it wasn't quite ready yet and that's why it was pulled. Personally I think had it not leaked online and got so many negative reactions, they probably would of kept it. What do you think?
