The end of June is here, which means the 2015 BET Awards are about to go down. Tonight at 8 p.m. the Microsoft Theater will be packed with your favorite rappers and singers taking in all of the performances onstage and celebrating the night’s big wins.

Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj are the top nominees at the BET Awards with six nominations each. Breezy competes against August Alsina, John Legend, The Weeknd, Trey Songz and Usher in the Best Male R&B/Pop Artist category while he’s also up for Best Collaboration and Video of the Year to name a few.

The Pinkprint creator competes Azealia Banks, DeJ Loaf, Iggy Azalea, Tink and Trina for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. Nicki is also nominated for Video of the Year and the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award. Beyonce is the only artist actually nominated for Video Director of the Year — another top honor that is nothing new for the singer.

One of the more coveted categories of the evening is the Best New Artist award, which features Bobby Shmurda, DeJ Loaf, Fetty Wap, Rae Sremmurd, Sam Smith and Tinashe vying for the win.
