Chris Rock got the party started Sunday night at the 2014 BET Awards in Los Angeles.

The comedian hosted the awards show and began the evening by grilling several famous faces, and taking jabs at a few recent infamous events.

So if you weren't able to check out the show yourself, worry not, we've got you covered.

Here are the top five funniest jokes that Rock made during the evening festivities:

1. He Took Aim at the Biebs: As he welcomed Usher to the stage, Rock joked that the artist had "discovered Justin Bieber and now he's going to spend the rest of his life apologizing for it." Yikes!

2. No Scandal Was Safe: Rock attributed the success of the hit ABC show to the fact that the progam has cast a white president. He said, "White people get to tune in and feel good. For one hour, it's just back to normal."

3. Donald Sterling, Look Away: The host grilled the embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner, saying, "An 83-year-old white man doesn't like black people? Is that news?" He added, "A black man couldn't look him in the eye until he was 45. The first black man he ever met, he got for Christmas."

4. The Elevator Tape Is Still on Everyone's Minds: The funnyman couldn't help but bring up the Solange and Jay-Z elevator debacle.  "Solange hit the right rapper—Jay's a businessman now, he can't just go punching girls in the face—he's got a meeting with Nabisco in the morning."

5.Everyone Should Get an Oscar: Rock spoke about the hit film The Butler but seemed to take issue with the fact that Oprah Winfrey didn't win for her outstanding performance in the Lee Daniels film. Why? "That acting job was amazing because she had to imagine she was poor!"
