Just Kickin It: R&B group Xscape perform at BET Awards

26 June 2017

Though not as formal as, say, the Oscars or the Golden Globes, we can always count on the BET Awards to serve up some serious style doses from Beyoncé, Gabrielle Union, Rihanna, and more, sprinkling some #BlackGirlMagic all over the show (and into our lives).

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

The 24k Magic singer was caught on camera seemingly closing his eyes as Mary J Blige took to the stage, although we're sure he wasn't bored by the Family Affair singer. Other nominees include Missy Elliott, Young Ma and Cardi B.

Leslie Jones of "Saturday Night Live" fame is hosting the show and offered jokes about contemporary rappers' names and her age (she turns 50 this year).

He referred to the incident of Uzma Ahmad, a young Indian woman who said she was forced to marry a Pakistani man at gunpoint. Trump had previously called Beijing a "currency manipulator" and threatened to launch a trade war with the communist giant.

Twitter was not kind Sunday night during Leslie Jones' first gig as an awards show host - specifically, the BET Awards in Los Angeles. "Stephen, no matter where you go in life, I know you are going to find success, because you got too much soul and too much passion", added the five time Grammy victor of Hill, who exited suddenly from BET on March 29 in a move that has now seen legal implications for himself, the network and Viacom.

New Edition, whose three-part biopic was a white-hot ratings success for BET earlier this year, earned the lifetime achievement award and received a lengthy tribute. One of his two awards was Best Male R&B/Pop Artist.

The rapper was also honoured with the best new artist prize at the awards ceremony. Minaj has won the honor consecutively since 2010.

Kendrick Lamar surprised the audience when he performed with Future and won best male hip hop artist.

A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Gucci Mane, SZA, Swae Lee and The Weeknd also performed.

Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Trevor Noah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Issa Rae and La La Anthony are all scheduled to present awards.

While accepting the award, several of the group's members made remarks.
