The 2016 BET Awards ended just moments ago, and minutes after Beyoncé took the stage, it has earned the title as the BEST BET AWARD CEREMONY IN THE PAST 10 YEARS!

Unlike last year’s show, both hosts, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, brought the funny, as their chemistry showed effortlessly. Last year, it seemed that Tracee should have hosted alone, as she delivered hard-hitting jokes and charisma.


With amazing Prince tributes from Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monae and Bilal, to show stopping performances from Chloe x Halle, Maxwell, and Bryson Tiller, the event ended with a party as Sheila E took the stage to pay tribute to her good friend and former lover Prince.

Beyoncé served as the biggest winner of the night, as she took home awards for Video of the Year and the Coca-cola Viewer’s Choice Award, while newcomer Bryson Tiller won Best New Artist and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist. Other winners include Drake, Taraji P. Henson and Michael B. Jordan.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson won the Lifetime Achievement Award while actor and activist Jesse Williams won the Humanitarian Award. Take a look at the full list of winners below:
