For the past 14 years, BET‘s long-running live entertainment show 106 & Park has delighted audiences with its mix of talk show fun and music video countdowns. The show will air its last episode this Friday for a special two-hour live finale featuring past hosts of the program.
BET made the announcement that the show was ending earlier this year, so the moment isn’t much of a shock. However, 106 & Park fans tuned in at a chance to see their favorite music stars on set in a bid to learn a little more about them. Currently, Shad Moss (formerly known as Bow Wow) and Keisha Chante have been gamely holding down the hosting duties. They will be joined on set for the finale by some of the show’s popular past hosts.
