The BET Awards kicked off Sunday night with an extended, star-studded rendition of Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power,” one of a slew of tributes to the Black Lives Matter movement that dominated the annual awards show that honors black achievement in entertainment and sports.

“Fight the Power” helped to open the virtual ceremony, with a montage of Black Lives Matter protests and other scenes of racial protest.


Host Amanda Seales of HBO’s Insecure paid tribute to Breonna Taylor during her opening monologue, calling for justice for the 26-year-old Kentucky resident who was killed during a police raid earlier this year. Seales noted “Breonna Taylor’s killers have not been arrested.”

The comedian-actress also name-checked Trayvon Martin and Botham John.


The show also featured a performance by Roddy Ricch, who wore a Black Lives Matter t-shirt, while performing “High Fashion” and “The Box.” The performance saw rapper Roddy Ricch rapping from a battered police car. “In loving memory of all the lives lost to racism and police brutality” read the message at the end of the performance.


D Smoke and SiR also performed a number that was replete with visual references to Black Lives Matter protests.


The lineup of musical acts for the show also included Jay Rock, Jennifer Hudson, Jonathan McReynolds, Kane Brown, Karen Clark Sheard, Kierra Sheard, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Jahi, Nas, Questlove, Rapsody, SiR, Summer Walker, Usher and YG.

Alicia Keys performed her new song “Perfect Way to Die.” Keys ended her performance and took a knee, as the camera pulled overhead showing the names of black people killed written in chalk on the street below.


The early awards of the evening went to singers Megan Thee Stallion for hip-hop artist of the year, Olympic gymnast Simon Biles for female athlete of the year, and LeBron James for sportsman of the year.

Rapper Lil Wayne performed a tribute to late NBA legend Koby Bryant.

Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” won the BET HER Award.

Michelle Obama helped present Beyoncé with the BET humanitarian award, saying of the Grammy-winning singer “you inspire me, you inspire all of us.”

"Black" Entertainment Television using its awards ceremony as a tribute to "Black Lives Matter"? Color me surprised.
is it really “black”?
I get the suspicion that these people think all black people think alike, while having to rely on the same generic black celebrities to “literal whos?” to tell us what to think.

it must be tiresome after all.

Hey now, when a person says all black people are thugs that consist on a diet of rape, watermellon, and fried chicken it's racist but when a jewish owned orginization does it they are just appealing to the people.

#BETAwards, the wards of beta

Is that the best of the best they could gather? Sad! Like any award show its just a bunch of dumbshit colleagues patting each other on the back. BET was always a celebration of mediocrity though.

I thought the BET and Tyler Perry controversies were 2 seperate cases

Speaking of which I watched the Tyler Perry episode a couple days ago
I think they were, but I believe this was around the time when Tyler Perry was getting in the limelight that BET actually wanted to get more T.P. on their network, and knowing the creator of the Boondocks, he just fought back before they could do it to him.
