For BET’s upcoming 2015 award show, they have enlisted help from Black-ish co-stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross to keep the event fun. It was revealed today that the sitcom couple will be joining the event. Anthony and Tracee who both are nominated, talked to PEOPLE about the upcoming night.
“I’m excited for the performances and I’m excited to see what happens with Anthony and I,” Ross, 42, tells PEOPLE. “We work together every week on Black-ish, but we have a very different kind of scripted relationship on the show so it’ll be fun for us to play in this way – in a different capacity and to be silly in a different way.”
Anthony later assured fans that things will go well, as he reminded that this wouldn’t be the first time he hosted next to Tracee.
“Tracee and I hosted the Vibe Awards [in 2005]. That was our first time working together and hosting something together…And here we are now, full circle, doing this for BET.”
The 2015 BET Awards with Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross is to air live on June 28 at 8PM EST on BET and Centric.
