This morning BET announced that West will perform at the BET Awards on June 27. The last time West appeared on TV was the day after the VMAs to rap his verse on Jay-Z’s “Run This Town” alongside Rihanna and apologize for his gaffe on the premier episode of Jay Leno’s The Jay Leno Show. Since then he’s been pretty low key, working on his next album in Hawaii. Last week he released the as-yet-untitled LP’s first single “Power.” So far it has drawn critical acclaim and excitement.

West’s a dynamic performer, known for pulling out all the stops. But some are still iffy on whether or not he’s fit for the big stage yet. Are you ready to see him perform again? Think he’s going to do anything outlandish? Let us know.
