We’re getting ready for the 2015 BET Awards – but first – check out what happened during The BET Experience at L.A. LIVE to kick off the festivities….

The BET Experience at L.A. LIVE presented by Coca-Cola® kicked off the festival weekend with a star packed Thursday and Friday experience. Thursday night featured a comedy show with Kevin Hart, followed by a concert at Club Nokia with Bell Biv Devoe and Doug E Fresh. Then yesterday….all eyes were on “2 On” singer Tinashe.

Tinashe is clearly the new darling of BET. In addition performing for tomorrow night’s Janet Jackson tribute, the fab chick has already landed two high profile roles during the BET Weekend.

She teamed with Ray-J for a one-off reboot of “106 & Park”, one of the network’s highest rated series of all time.

Thanks to her hosting duties, she got a chance to pop and lock with Wale.

Plus she chatted it up with Detroit sensation Dej Loaf.

Then, French Montana did a walk thorough to celebrate the one-time reactivation.

Tinashe also performed her radio hits (we must admit, they’re catchy and we kinda like them) last night at Club Nokia for a special BET concert event.

Ok BET…we see who you want your new queen to be…

Tinashe isn’t the ONLY person getting props from BET this weekend. R&B crooner Miguel also hit the stage last night to promote his upcoming LP Wildheart.

BET even let Grammy winning singer Ne-Yo perform in a tiny piece of space left unoccupied by Tinashe.

Then hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd got a piece of the action…

Elsewhere in LA yesterday:

Jay Z’s TIDAL teamed with Meek Mill for a party at the Mondrian Hotel.

Singer Justine Skye came out to show some love and she grabbed a flick with Wale and Meek.

Rapper Fabolous, who just had a new baby with Emily B, took time away from diaper duty to hang out.

And…..Elle Varner was spotted at the function in her swimsuit. Yeah, we thought it was Da Brat at first glance too.
