Here Are The 2021 BET Awards Winners

LOS ANGELES, CA – The annual BET Awards got underway at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday (June 27) with Empire actress Taraji P. Henson acting as host and its first live audience since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The show was billed as the “Year of the Black Woman” in an effort to honor Black

women, including Queen Latifah who was presented with the Lifetime Achievement

Award.

“Black women have been essential drivers of change throughout history, from the

political sphere to the cultural zeitgeist,” Executive Vice President of Music

Programming & Strategy at BET Connie Orlando said in a statement. “We are looking

forward to spotlighting and celebrating Black women during this year’s show,

recognizing them for everything they’ve accomplished and applauding them for what’s

to come.”

Boasting musical performances from Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Tyler, The Creator,

Migos, Method Man, Cardi B and more, the spirited event featured some of rap’s biggest

artists.

The evening’s festivities kicked off with Lil Baby and Kirk Franklin, who performed their

song “We Win” from the soundtrack of Space Jam: A New Legacy. Migos soon took the

stage to perform “Straightenin” and “Type Shit” from their new album Culture III. But

everyone’s jaws dropped when Cardi B stepped out on stage revealing a very pregnant

belly.
