Somewhere, Chris Brown is doing the dougie in celebration of his six 2011 BET Award nominations. The young star led tonight’s announcement with nominations in the following categories: Best Male R&B Artist, two nominations for Best Collaboration, Video of the Year, Best Actor and Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice.

Other heavy-hitter nominees include Lil Wayne with five nominations — Rihanna, Drake and ESSENCE Music Fest (got tickets?) headliner Kanye West picked up four nominations each. For a complete list, click here.

Last but not least, BET announced that this year’s host will be none other than comedian Kevin Hart. He joins the ranks of Mo’Nique, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith who all have hosted Black entertainment’s biggest night.

Tune into BET on Sunday, June 26th at 8pm to see who’ll take home a statue and who’ll take the stage.
