Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey and Spike Lee get 2012 BET Honors


Stevie Wonder (Jason Merritt/Getty Images), Maya Angelou (Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post), Spike Lee (Andy Kropa/Getty Images), and Mariah Carey (Cindy Ord/Getty Images) have been tapped for the 2012 BET Honors.

BET will announce Monday an A-list lineup for its fifth annual Honors show in D.C. next month: Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee and Mariah Carey will be celebrated next month in D.C. for lifetime achievement to African-American culture, the network announced Monday. Also on the 2012 roster: The Tuskegee Airmen and track coach Beverly Kearney.

The night is BET’s equivalent of the Kennedy Center Honors: A black-tie tribute hosted by actress Gabrielle Union with a glitzy red carpet, VIP presenters, big-name performers, and lots of after-parties. The award show takes place Sat., Jan. 14 at the Warner Theatre.
