Bruno Mars kicks off BET Awards

Bruno Mars kicks off BET Awards

The whole hip-hop cream United States was present in Los Angeles.

If you missed it, in her opening monologue, host Leslie Jones poked fun at the names of this year's nominees.

Bruno Mars also had a decent night - nominated for five award he danced away with two on the night - Best Male R&B/Pop artists and best video for his "24K Magic" which tied with Beyoncé's "Sorry". But no one was really prepared for how they'd give him the award, including Chance himself.

At the live show at the Microsoft Theater, '90s R&B favorites New Edition and Xscape were the most welcomed performers of the night.

Chance, who attended the ceremony with his mother, looked overwhelmed as he accepted the award. El DeBarge and Kamasi Washignton performed "Careless Whisper" in honor George Michael, who died past year on Christmas Day, while Janelle Monae collaborator Roman GianArthur excitedly sang "Johnny B. Goode" in tribute to Chuck Berry, who died in March.

"We are so proud of you, Chance", she said, referring to her and Barack like they're Chance's beaming parents at his first piano recital (we ship this storyline, btw).

He also made history by becoming the youngest artiste to receive the humanitarian award at the age of 24.

"It feels a little early to get something like this", he said. That they have something inside of them that is worthy of being expressed.I can think of no better legacy to leave. The Lifetime Achievement Award came with much more than a trophy, as the group was honored in an extensive coronation.

In the big and small screen categories of tonight's BET Awards being aired on several Viacom outlets, Gabrielle Union, Insecure's Issa Rae, Viola Davis, Hidden Figures' Janelle Monáe and Taraji P. Henson are up for Best Actress. "I was gonna tell the Chicago Public School system not to take out a loan from Chase bank, when they know that our schools are planning on failing in our district".

The rapper said he didn't prepare a speech. And thanks to all the fans, my Beyhive, for riding with me. Justin Bieber, who appeared on the single, wasn't at the show last night, so instead Khaled brought his baby son, Asahd onstage to perform a verse. And there were lovely people: Bruno Mars, Future, Big Sean, DJ Khaled just released his new album Grateftul, Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla Sign, Migos ...

Remy Ma: The Bronx's self-declared "Queen of NY" secured another jewel for her crown when she took home Best Female Hip Hop Artist - breaking the 7-year winning streak held by rival Nicki Minaj.
