2016 BET Awards RECAP: One of the Best Award Shows

The 2016 BET Awards aired last night and was definitely one of the best award shows I have seen in years. The BET Awards was established in 2001 to highlight the achievements of African Americans and minorities. Anthony Anderson  & Tracee Ellis Ross hosted this year’s awards show and they are definitley a funny duo especially if you tune into ABC’s Blackish. Here are some of the highlights of the night.

Beyonce & Kendrick Lamar

Beyoncé opened up the show with a performance of Freedom from her Formation Tour. If the water works weren’t enough Kendrick Lamar rose from the ground to give us the BET Awards Remix. This was a great way to open the show. View here

The Roots

Of course there could be no BET Awards show without a tribute to the legendary Prince. “Bilal, The Roots and Erykah Badu’s emotional tribute to Prince is 100 percent unforgettable” BET.com. View Here
