Kendrick Lamar, Megan Thee Stallion, Will Smith, Jazmine Sullivan Among Winners – Full List of Winners – Deadline

The 22nd Annual BET Awards airs Sunday nights, with Taraji P. Henson returning to host “culture’s greatest night.” Presented live from the Microsoft Theater, the star-studded event featured a selection of fresh and renowned talent, including electric performances from Lizzo, Jack Harlow, Lil Wayne, Roddy Ricch and Chance the Rapper.

Since 2001, the BET Awards have celebrated Black’s excellence in entertainment and creative arts across TV, film, music, marketing and sports.

The winner of the evening was Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Sean “Diddy” Combs, whose unique career as a recording artist, producer and mogul was paid tribute in a medley performance by longtime collaborators Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Lil Kim, Busta Rhymes and Faith Evans. The celebration concluded with a surprise speech from a masked Kanye West, praising the esteemed producer for his contributions to the world of hip-hop since the early 1990s.
