Usher has reportedly joined the performance line-up for this year's BET Awards 2012.

The 'Climax' singer will perform at the annual awards ceremony at the start of July, joining previously announced performers including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and Big  Sean. 

Usher's performance at the BET Awards comes just weeks after the release of his seventh studio album 'Looking 4 Myself'', which has already produced hit singles in 'Climax' and 'Scream'.

The R&B star gave a live performance of songs from his new album at Capital's Summertime Ball 2012, as well as launching his new album with a special intimate record showcase at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo last night (11th June).

Usher will now join Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj as performers at the BET Awards 2012, which takes place in Los Angeles as the Shrine Auditorium on 7th July from 8pm.
