BET Award WINNERS 2021 : Megan Thee Stallion And Burna Boy Win Big. Check Out Full List Of All The Winners

BET Award WINNERS 2021: Megan Thee Stallion, Andra Day, Burna Boy, Cardi B, Queen Latifah and a host of other Superstars were rewarded on the night.

The award aims to honour “creative expression and Black excellence across music, television, film and sports” across 21 categories. Heading into the ceremony, Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby led the nominations for the 2021 BET Awards, with seven apiece.

Taraji P. Henson hosted Sunday’s ceremony, where H.E.R., Cardi B and Silk Sonic also were among the winners, while Cardi B revealed her second pregnancy during her performance with Migos.

The BET Award Winners 2021 received their awards on Sunday night at a live in-person show that felt like a return to pre-pandemic norms.

This year, the BET Awards returned to the live show format and welcomed back an in-person, vaccinated audience along with a red carpet. Organizers said they would work closely with Los Angeles County to support community vaccination efforts and ensure adherence to COVID-19 protocols.

“I am so excited to be here with humans; we need each other,” Henson said after coming out on stage, talking to the live audience, some of whom were in masks, while many were not.

During the show, Queen Latifah was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Before she took the stage to give her acceptance speech, Monie Love, Rapsody, MC Lyte and Lil’ Kim performed a tribute to Latifah, including her own hit “U.N.I.T.Y,” as the rapper-actress got emotional while watching from the audience.

Meanwhile, the first winner announced on the telecast was Andra Day, named the best actress for her role in The United States vs. Billie Holiday, which earned her an Oscar nom and a Golden Globe award earlier this year. Day noted in her speech that she was genuinely surprised: “I really didn’t expect this.”

The late Chadwick Boseman was named best actor, while Judas and the Black Messiah was named best movie, but neither award was handed out during the telecast.

Silk Sonic — comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson. Paak — was named best group. Paak and Mars took the stage in matching tuxedos — Mars in pink, Paak in blue. “To the fans patiently waiting, Andy and I promise y’all, it’s gonna be worth the wait,” Mars said of the group’s upcoming debut album, which does not yet have an official release date. “Here’s to y’all,” he added, raising a flask to the audience.

Meanwhile, Cardi B revealed her pregnancy on Sunday night during her performance with Migos. The rapper, who has a daughter named Kulture with husband Offset, wore a blinged-out, one-piece outfit with a mesh cutout showing off her pregnant belly. Offset is a member of the group Migos.

Video of the year went to “WAP,” by Cardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Megan came onstage to accept the award moments after performing. (Cardi B did not come onstage to accept.) In her speech, Megan noted the popularity of the song and thanking fans for making it a hit.

Megan also was named the best female hip-hop artist and the viewer’s choice award for “Savage (Remix)” featuring Beyoncé. In her speech for the former, she thanked her mom for inspiring her to pursue her dream of being a rapper, while she noted later that “Savage” fulfilled another dream, that of getting to work with Beyoncé.

Jazmine Sullivan won album of the year for Heaux Tales and brought her mom upstage to accept the award with her. She noted that, two years ago, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.  (Later in the show, Burna Boy was named best international act and also brought his own mom onstage with him.)

H.E.R. performed during the show and was later named best female R&B/pop artist, following on the heels of her best song Oscar win earlier this year for “Fight for You.

Kicking off the show were Lil Baby and Kirk Franklin, who performed their song “We Win,” from the soundtrack of Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Other performers included Lil Nas X, who sang “Call Me by Your Name” donning Egyptian-themed attire against an Egyptian-themed backdrop.

The energetic performance featured male backup dancers, one of whom Nas kissed at the end. Performers also will include Silk Sonic, Andra Day,  DaBaby, DJ Khaled, Sullivan, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, City Girls, Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, Rapsody and Tyler, the Creator.

Swizz Beatz oversaw a tribute to the late rapper DMX, who died in April at age 50. Busta Rhymes, Method Man and Griselda performed during the tribute, which followed the “In Memoriam” segment remembering those who died over the past year. Their medley included a rousing performance of “Party Up (Up in Here).”
