"Because of you, countless young people will grow up believing in themselves, fulfilling their God-given potential and then reaching back and lifting up other people along the way". Her diss track, "Shether", made huge waves, and when Nicki Minaj tried to respond to it, many recognized that Remy Ma was the one who came out as the victor.

The pop star, whose last album was heavily inspired by '90s R&B, was full of energy Sunday when he sang "Perm" onstage with six of his backup dancers at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

New Edition was recognized with a lifetime achievement award. There was also "90s R&B group Xscape, who performed together for the first time in over a decade, singing a medley of the songs that made them famous, such as "Understanding", "Who Can I Run To?", and "Just Kickin" It".

Bruno Mars was up for five awards at this year's show, including Album of the Year and Video of the Year. "I didn't know how much our fans were gonna stick with us".

Nominees for best male hip hop artist are Kendrick Lamar, Drake, J. Cole, Chance the Rapper, Future and Big Sean.

At the tender age of 24, Chance the Rapper was honored as a humanitarian during the BET Awards on Sunday for his work in his hometown of Chicago, with accolades from the Obamas to Kendrick Lamar. Chance also won best new artist and best collaboration. He has pledged to donate $1 million to Chicago Public Schools, worked on President Obama's criminal justice program, and raised more than $2 million for his SocialWorks organization.

"Barack and I are so sorry that we can't be there tonight in person", she said as Chance The Rapper was honored with the Humanitarian Award recognizing his activism and philanthropic work in Chicago.

Solange, who celebrated her birthday on Saturday, thanked her family for their support during her acceptance speech.

Yara started off by praising her peers and thanking the network, saying "I'd have to thank BET for celebrating our culture so beautifully when it isn't celebrated everywhere else as it should be".

Solange held a moment of silence later on, and the show also honored some of the minorities who died at the hands of police officers, including Trayvon Martin, Philando Castile, Eric Garner and others.

Twitter has also pointed out that Bruno absolutely crushed his opening performance earlier on in the night, and so deserves one split-second of rest. "Whoa", said Jamie Foxx, who presented an award after Mary J's performance.
