Although she didn’t perform, Beyonce took home a star trophy for Best Female R&B Artist at the 2012 BET Awards on Sunday (July 1) in Los Angeles.

The R&B queen beat out fellow nominees Rihanna, Marsha Ambrosius and Melanie Fiona. Beyonce was looking glamorous in her yellow gown with a loong slit that showed off her slender legs as she gracefully walked up the stage.

During her speech, Beyonce expressed her gratitude to BET, her fellow R&B songbirds and the late pop icon Whitney Houston.

“I would like to thank BET for this beautiful honor. I fell in love with music by listening to R&B and it’s the core of who I am,” she said. “I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige. I want to dedicate this award to Whitney Houston, my angel.”

“I hope y’all enjoy the show, god bless, you,” she finished.

Congrats to Beyonce on winning the Best Female R&B artist award!
