Winners from BET Awards Include Queen Latifah, Megan Thee Stallion and Andra Day

The 2021 BET Awards, honoring Black excellence in entertainment and sports, were presented Sunday, June 28 and the show was nothing less than phenomenal.

Hosted by Taraji P. Henson the show literally elevated artists’ performance to a new level, including a gravity-defying performance from H.E.R.

Among the artists with the most nods this year were DaBaby and Megan Thee Stallion with seven nominations each. Following closely behind are Cardi B and Drake, who each have five nods.

Following more than a year of quarantine, social distancing and police brutality, the BET 2021 Awards was a star-studded and uplifting celebration of Black excellence in entertainment and culture.

Lifetime Achievement Award honoree Queen Latifah was honored with a look back at some of the multitalented entertainer’s most memorable moments as a nominee, performer, host and more.

The 2021 BET Awards featured an all-star tribute to DMX featuring Method Man, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes and more.

The performance opened with Method Man doing an a cappella version of DMX’s major label debut single, 1998’s “Get at Me Dog.” Buffalo rap trio Griselda then took the stage, running through a bit of “Hood Blues” — their collaboration with DMX on his posthumous album, Exodus — and then belting the refrain from “Where the Hood At?”

Along with the DMX tribute, the 2021 BET Awards featured performances from Lil Nas, Cardi B and Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, Tyler the Creator and more.
