It feels somewhat strange to follow a heartfelt tribute to a fallen legend like Whitney Houston with a strip club anthem like Tyga's 'Rack City,' but that's how the cookie (that was the 2012 BET Awards) crumbled. While the performance was energetic and fun, it was a bit jarring coming after Cissy Houston's heartwrenching ballad to her fallen daughter.
Not like there was much doubt, but congratulations are still in order. Big ups to Nicki Minaj, who not only delivered a killer performance, but also won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the 2012 BET Awards!
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.
