Beyonce wins big at BET Awards

BET president Debra L. Lee honored Chance the Rapper with the Humanitarian Award, noting that "he's not afraid to speak out and speak up for those who can't speak for themselves". Yes, tonight The Root is at the BET Awards trying not to be awkward!

Of course, people quickly noticed-some even called him out for "disrespecting" Blige while others simply took the opportunity to birth a new meme.

Yeah, sure there are other explanations for the two seconds of footage, like perhaps he was deep in contemplation over Mary J. Blige's greatness or maybe just realised he didn't feed his pet goldfish this morning, IDK. She'll probably win again this year, but she will, at least, have some competition from Missy Elliott, Cardi B and Remy Ma.

When it was announced that she won the viewer's choice award, Chloe x Halle - the young duo signed to Beyonce - recited a speech given to them from the pop star.

The event, which is being hosted by Leslie Jones, will be live streamed on BET.com and it will also be available on YouTube.

The artist opened up the show with "Perm". "Steve, no matter where you go in life, I know you're gonna find success because you've got too much soul and too much passion".

Coming into the evening, everyone knew Chance the Rapper was set to receive the Humanitarian Award at the 2017 BET Awards, a tremendous honor and an unprecedented one for someone his age.

Other winners on the night included Beyonce for best female R&B/pop artist, Migos for best group and Stormzy who took home best global act - Europe.

While Lamar was named the best male hip-hop artiste, Chance The Rapper bagged the award for the best new artiste on the block, reported Variety. "But, my God doesn't make mistakes", Chance said as he received the award. Beyonce's "Sorry" and Mars' "24K Magic" are up for video of the year, along with her sister Solange's "Cranes In the Sky", Migos' "Bad and Boujee" and Big Sean's "Bounce Back".

Presenters include Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Trevor Noah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Issa Rae and Yara Shahidi.
