The BET Awards 2012 will be a star-studded event — Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Usher, Jamie Foxx and even Quentin Tarantino are slated to attend. With Samuel L. Jackson as the host, tonight's show is a must-see event, and we want to watch it with you!

The Root's New York Bureau Chief Hillary Crosley is in Los Angeles and will live-tweet from the show. Don't miss her commentary on all the presenters and performances, especially Cissy Houston's tribute to Whitney. We can't wait!
