As if snagging Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones to host the BET Awards wasn’t enough, the annual awards show has just revealed its star-studded group of presenters. 

Yara Shahidi, Robin Thede, Cardi B, La La Anthony, and Cari Champion are all set to present awards at the BET Awards 2017.

The annual event celebrates the best in entertainment with Beyoncé and Bruno Mars leading the pack with seven and five nominations, respectively. ESSENCE Fest performer Chance the Rapper and rap trio Migos aren’t too far behind, both receiving four. 

The BET Awards are always an unforgettable event with 2016’s ceremony opening with a performance from Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar, Jesse Williams giving an incredibly powerful speech, and a moving tribute to Prince. The ceremony was hosted by Black-ish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross. 

No word yet on who will perform, but like every BET Awards event, we know whoever’s lined up will give an incredible show.

The BET Awards 2017 will air live on Sunday, June 25 at 8p.m. ET on BET.
