After nearly 23 years in the music industry, BET will finally honor Mariah Carey at the 2012 BET Honors ceremony.
The "We Belong Together" hitmaker and mother of "dem babies" has been named Best Entertainer for her contribution to African-American culture and will be celebrated at the event alongside musical genius Stevie Wonder.
As the "best-selling female pop artist of the millennium," as well as the "Best-selling artist of the '90s" in the United States, this award is well overdue.
But we all know how these ceremonies go and wonder, who will be chosen to take on Mariah's high pitched, memorable hits, attempt her signature whistle register, and perform at the ceremony in front of her and her peers?
Check out the gallery for who we think should bless the stage and honor Mrs. Nick Cannon at the 2012 BET Honors Awards!
