2019 BET Awards Highlights

BET Awards 2019 - Show

The BET Awards was a night a lot of people will remember -- from Lizzo's unforgettable performance to the beautiful tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle.

Cardi B's performance with husband Offset of their song 'Clout' and her solo performance of 'Press' opened the show and set the energy levels for the rest of the show.

 

Lizzo did her very first awards show performance and let loose with her performance of 'Truth Hurts.' She pulled out a flute during her set and performed a solo. We love an artist who is unapologetically herself!

 

Lil Nas X performed his viral hit 'Old Town Road' with legendary Billy Ray Cyrus. Everyone in the audience knew the song word-for-word, which isn't a surprise since the song has spent the last 11 weeks as the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100.

 

The recently released Netflix hit When They See Us stars The Exonerated Five, formerly known as the Central Park Five, attended the awards show and received a standing ovation by the audience who celebrated their freedom.

The five men, Raymond Santana Jr., Yusef Salaam, Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson and Korey Wise were wrongly convicted of raping a jogger in NYC when they were teenagers.

 

Lastly, the late Nipsey Hussle was honored with the Humanitarian Award. His family went up to accept the award, including his widow Lauren London and kids, along wit his parents and grandmother.

He was remembered throughout the entire awards show, especially during DJ Khaled's tribute along with YG, John Legend and Marsha Ambrosious.
