Beyonce kicking off the show. Bey started the BET Awards off with a bang by performing her song “Freedom” surrounded by amazing tattooed dancers splashing around on a stage covered in water. We have one word: Iconic!
Anthony & Tracee’s “Hamilton” spoof. We never thought we would see a mashup of “Down in the DM” and “Hamilton: The Musical” but that’s exactly what happened at the top of the show! Hilarious!
The amazing Prince tribute. The Roots teamed up with Eryka Badu, D’Angelo, and more to give a powerful, exciting and emotional tribute to the fallen legend and it was simply stunning. Later on they continued the tribute with Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, and Jennifer Hudson. Then Janelle Monae showed off her booty!
Alicia Keys’ insane performance. We can’t even believe what happened when Alicia took the stage! The diva sang a medley of her songs, and played a slew of instruments all by herself to do it! That includes a piano, drum pads, guitar and more — all on her own!
Bryson Tiller’s sexy medley. the up and coming singer did a back-to-back performance of his two hits “Don’t” and “Exchange” and it was super sexy! He was surrounded by smoke, fire, and an ambulance, which is exactly what we needed after he stopped out hearts!
Usher got his groove on. Usher brought choreography back to the BET Awards with his performance of “No Limit” with Young Thug. Plus Usher rocked a “Don’t Trump America” jacket that got majorly political and amazing!
