The 2019 BET Awards were one wild night, okurrrr.
Regina Hall hosted the annual event, which was held at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. on Sunday. Honoring the best in entertainment and sports, the awards show featured all your favorite stars, from Tiffany Haddish to Denzel Washington and Michael B. Jordan.
Cardi B, who led the pack with the most nominations, kicked off the night with an epic performance alongside husband Offset. Afterwards, the rapper "blew kisses to the audience," an eyewitness told E! News. "She was hugging people and was very happy." Later on the evening, John Legend and Taraji P. Henson posed for what we can only imagine to be the greatest picture.
The night's big winner was Mary J. Blige, who was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award by Rihanna. After delivering an empowering speech, she performed a medley of her greatest hits. "The dancers waiting on stage before the second part of her performance were all rocking out," said the witness. "People were dancing in the aisles and loving it."
The show closed out with a tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle, who was honored with a posthumous Humanitarian Award. His grandmother Margaret Boutte accepted the trophy along with Nipsey's girlfriend and mom. Later, Boutte was "greeted by well wishers" in the aisle, added the insider.
