BET Networks recognized an exceptional lineup of artists, entertainers, cultural provocateurs and inspiring humanitarians across over 19 categories at the 18th Annual BET Awards. The ceremony, hosted by Academy and Grammy-award winner, Jamie Foxx, aired live from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE on Sunday, June 24, 2018.

This year’s broadcast celebrates 18 years of impactful performances from the hottest names in the business and appearances from entertainment’s most talked-about players. More than ever, the BET Awards continues to tackle and support culturally and socially relevant narratives and conversations, setting the standard for one of the most intently unconventional, news-provoking and talked-about broadcasts.

“BET AWARDS 18” Show Highlights Include: Host Jamie Foxx opened the show with a witty Wakanda-themed banter focused on the film’s star Michael B. Jordan who was seated front-row. Jamie then lured Jordan on stage to recite a profound passage about honor and sacrifice from the record-breaking blockbuster.

Critically acclaimed lyricist, conscientious hip hop artist and record producer, J. Cole, performed a medley of “Friends” with Daniel Caesar and Wale. Later, Miguel joined the stage for a soulful and resounding version of “Come Through and Chill.”

Atlanta trap trio Migos performed hits "Walk It Talk It" and "Stir Fry,” hyping the crowd and bringing them to their feet. They also took home the BET Award for “Best Group” later in the show.

Jamie Foxx went off-script to pay tribute to fellow artist Childish Gambino, imitating the dance style featured in his iconic hit “This is America,” while also hailing Glover as a songwriter, philanthropist, movie star, and overall badass. Foxx then called up him on stage for an impromptu performance of the track.

Nicki Minaj took over the BET stage once again with a fierce version of her current single, "Chun Li." She later re-appeared alongside 2 Chainz and Big Sean as featured artists on YG’s performance of "Big Bank.”

A star-studded performance was delivered for this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Anita Baker. Marsha Ambrosius, Ledisi, and Yolanda Adams blew the house down with their riveting renditions of Baker's “Caught Up in the Rapture,” ”Sweet Love,” and “You Bring Me Joy,” respectively. The crowd-raising tribute had Ms. Baker visibly in tears and overwhelmed with emotion.

For the first time, BET honored six Humanitarian Heroes, individuals who have done extraordinary things in some of the most disheartening and trying of situations. Presented by John Legend, those honored included James Shaw Jr. (disarmed Waffle House shooter), Naomi Wadler (11 year-old speaker at March For Our Lives), Mamoudou Gassama (Climbed outside of building to save dangling 4 year-old), Justin Blackman (only student to walk out of his High School on National Student Walk-Out Day), Shaun King (journalist who has been instrumental in covering untold stories in the black community), Anthony Borges (Parkland Victim/Hero who threw himself in line of fire - shot five times).

Meek Mill delivered a powerful performance of his first new song since being released from prison, “Stay Woke,” addressing the abhorrent inequalities in the criminal justice system, and included vivid imagery of police violence and mass incarceration. The rapper also wore a sweatshirt that honored late rappers XXXTentacion and Jimmy Wopo on stage.

Janelle Monae gave a strong, empowering performance of “Django Jane” and “I Like That” featuring high-energy choreography by an army of female dancers. BET AWARDS 2018 WINNERS LIST HOLLYWOOD

Snoop Dogg transformed the house of the Microsoft Theater into a house party, as the crowd rapped the lyrics to a medley of the iconic rapper’s biggest hits, including “Who Am I (What’s My Name),” “The Next Episode,” and “Sunrise” with Sly Piper. He finished the performance with an uplifting rendition of “You” in collaboration with gospel star Tye Tribbett to close out the show.
