BET J bridges the worlds of music and virtual reality to bring viewers its first ever awards show, the BET J Virtual Awards, slated to premiere on BET J on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET.       

       Hosted by actress Nia Long and comedian Chris Spencer, the “virtual” broadcast honors today’s best in music and entertainment. The show will feature performances from Washington, D.C., New York and Atlanta hotspots – “all from a stunning, ground-breaking virtual environment,” the network stated.       

       BET J also gives viewers an opportunity to showcase their own musical talent by performing their own rendition of one of the five nominated songs in the special user-generated “My Time Online” category.       

       Through Wednesday, Nov. 12, viewers can log onto www.bet.com/betjvirtualawards to upload their videos which will be judged by a celebrity panel of judges. The winner will be presented with their own BET J Virtual Awards statuette and have their acceptance speech air during the awards show.
