Sooooo we just found out this year's BET Awards nominees. But rather than simply telling us who might be taking home the honors for Best Collaboration, Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Best Female Hip Hop Artist, BET decided to show us just how great all the nominees in those three categories were—and they asked none other than Will "WilldaBeast" Adams to help them do it, via an epic dance video featuring 16 pieces of choreo, an assist from WilldaBeast's on- and offstage partner Janelle Ginestra and the artists of the incredible #immaBEAST team.
THIS. THIS. SO MUCH THIS.
We spy Taylor Hatala, Kaycee Rice, Tati McQuay, Will Simmons, Gabe De Guzman, Sean Lew, China Taylor, Miles Brown and, of course, WilldaBeast and Ginestra themselves. And that's just on a first viewing.
The video debuted last night—on a giant screen in the heart of Times Square, naturally:

We'd like to propose that every awards show take a tip out of BET's playbook here. Because there's no better way to get people hyped about your nominees than to commission some world-class dance showcasing their amazingness.
Happy Friday, friends. Don't forget to tune in to the BET Awards on Sunday, June 26 at 8 pm EST.
