The BET Awards are going high class this year.
Between Rihanna's Diamonds and Justin Timberlake's Suit & Tie, it sounds like host Chris Tucker is really going to be putting on the ritz!
Naturally, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and Kendrick Lamar were also up for awards for their work this year, while Chris Brown, who was on hand at the announcement ceremony, is once again up for Best Male R&B Artist.
Drake should get the honorary team player award- he's featured on FOUR of the noms for Best Collaboration!
You can see the full list of nominees in all categories …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Alicia Keys couldn't resist flaunting those hips at the Met Gala on Monday.
The singer vamped it up in a figure-hugging Jason Wu halter dress, streaking a few strands of her hair to match the burgundy in her skirt.
Hey, at least she gave it the old college try, right?
Are U feeling Alicia's attempt at punk???

As a philanthropist and AIDs activist, Alicia Keys has been using her Grammy award-winning talent and fame to do some real good in the world. She even co-founded "Keep a Child Alive," an organization that has raised millions to care for HIV/AIDS patients in Africa and India!

Alicia Keys is taking her seksi sounds to the streets!
The Fire We Make singer shows off her toned torso as she struts through the back alley with some backup dancers in her latest music video!

Talk about Red Hot! This girl is on fire!
Alicia Keys is very animated on the cover of Elle's Women In Music issue.
After the somber and beautiful Adele and the aristocratic Rita Ora covers, this vivacious photo of the Girl on Fire is a nice way to cap things off!
The singer wears a bright red Jean Paul Gaultier wool dress with lipstick to match, and while we're not sure if there's a spread to accompany this fun photo, we'd LOVE to see Alicia vamping it up in some seksi outfits!
Hopefully, more pics will turn up soon!

Are you ready to LOSE YOUR MIND up in here?!
During Alicia Keys' Madison Square Garden gig last night, her husband Swizz Beatz and his former Ruff Ryder companion DMX hopped on stage and drove the crowd WILD when they spat a few lyrics of the original Ruff Ryder's Anthem…

And the audience proceded to party their faces off.
Glad to see DMX is involving himself in non arrest-worthy hijinks!
