Kanye West continues to inch his way back into the spotlight with a performance at the 2010 BET Awards.


The performance will be West’s first major performance at an awards show, since his infamous appearance alongside Taylor Swift, at the 2009 MTV VMA’s.

“While West received much backlash and criticism following the VMAs, BET decided to give the multifaceted performer a spot in music history during its 10 year anniversary special,” BET said in a statement.

Also added to this year’s roster of performers are Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Drake and others. Previously announced performers include T.I., Diddy and Dirty Money, Nicki Minaj and Trey Songz, while John Legend will receive a Humanitarian Award.

The BET Awards ‘10 are slated to air live on Sunday (June 27th) at 8:00 PM from the Shrine Auditorium.
