The BET Awards is one of the biggest award shows of the summer, and there are always plenty of memorable moments that go down each year, and we’re pretty sure this year will be no different.

Leading with the most nominations is none other than Queen Bey, as she earns a total of seven nominations. Some of the categories she is nominated in include, “Best Female R&B/Pop Artist,” “Best Collaboration,” “Video of the Year,” and “Album of the Year.”

Beyoncé will also face off against her sister Solange in some of those categories as she was also nominated for” Best Female R&B/ Pop Artist,” “Video of the Year” and “Album of the Year.”

Following behind Beyoncé is Bruno Mars as he snagged a total of five nominations, which include, “Best Male R&B/ Pop Artist” and “Viewers Choice.”
