The 2020 BET Awards took place last night, hosted by Amanda Seales right from her living room. Performances, award acceptances and more were all virtual. While it was very different from usual, it definitely was worth the watch. Missed it? Don’t worry, here are some of the show’s biggest moments!
1. Megan Thee Stallion
The Houston rapper took home two awards last night. One for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist [beating Cardi B, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj & more] and a Viewer’s Choice Award for “Hot Girl Summer” ft. Nicki Minaj.
Beyond her accomplishments, her fire performance also has her trending. She performed “Girls in the Hood” and “Savage” (Remix) leaving fans shook when she showed the world why, “he want a b*tch like the Stallion with the knees…” [Meg lyrics].

3. Lil Wayne
Lil Tunechi gave a heartfelt performance dedicated to Kobe and Gianna Bryant.
4. Wayne Brady
Wayne Brady delivered a phenomenal performance tributing the late pioneer of Rock N’ Roll, Little Richard.
