As you can see in this batch of pictures, the performances at the 2011 BET Awards were nothing short of amazing. The annual awards show -- which celebrate exceptional entertainers in music, acting, and sports -- was held tonight, June 26, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Calif.

Mary J. Blige kicked off the show with a throwback performance of a medley of her hits, from 'Real Love' to an onstage collaboration with Anita Baker on 'Caught Up in the Rapture.' Lil Wayne also performed a remix of 'Hustle Hard' with a shirtless Rick Ross, and Chris Brown performed a mashup of his 'F.A.M.E.' tracks 'She Ain't You,' 'Deuces' and 'Look at Me Now' with Busta Rhymes and Weezy. On a side note, we couldn't get over Breezy's David Byrne-esque big suit! Beyonce (who performed via satellite from her set at Glastonbury), Drake, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars and many more also performed tonight at the star-studded event.
