Maybach Music Group rapper Wale won the first award of his career at the 2012 BET Awards Sunday (July 1) in Los Angeles. The rhyme-spitter won the Best Collaboration trophy along with Miguel for the chart-topping hit 'Lotus Flower Bomb.'
D'Angelo made his long-anticipated return to the stage tonight (July 1) at the BET Awards, performing a medly of his trademark bedroom anthem 'How Does It Feel' and 'Sugar Daddy,' one of 30 -- yes, 30! -- new tracks he's written for an upcoming new album.
Nicki Minaj brought her hip-hop side out in full force at the 2012 BET Awards, shutting up any of her critics who claimed she sold out as pure pop, while still maintaining the onstage theatrics that have become one of her trademarks.
Bigger is better. In fact, bigger is best -- as in Best New Artist at the 2012 BET Awards, where Big Sean took home the coveted title against stiff competition from A$AP Rocky (a PopCrush fave), Meek Mill, Future and Diggy Simmons. Considering he had one of the biggest hits of the year so far with 'Dance (A$$),' it was a well-deserved win.
The 2012 BET Awards were quite the star-studded, with performers like Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Usher, Nicki Minaj and many more filling the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Photographers captured some of hip-hop and R&B's hottest artists mingling in the audience, hanging out backstage, or performing for viewers all over the nation at the 2012 BET Awards.
The G.O.O.D. Music family kicked off the BET Awards 2012 with a driving performance of their latest single, 'Mercy' from their upcoming compilation album 'Cruel Summer.' Dressed in all-white outfits, rappers Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz rocked the mic behind a replica of Lamborghini Murcielago and amid a showering of laser beams.
Usher gave a subdued yet effective performance of his ubiquitous ballad 'Climax' at the BET Awards 2012. The song became Usher's 12th No. 1 hit of his career and, undoubtedly, is one of the biggest songs of the year.
It's hard to tell who the 2012 BET Awards winners will be, but Beyonce and Kanye West are the frontrunners for nominations, and almost immediately, Yeezy picked up his first award for the evening. After an energy-packed performance of 'Mercy' and 'Cold,' West and Jay-Z (who surprised him during the acceptance speech, coming out from backstage) took home the 2012 BET Award award for Best Group.
