Beyonce Presented with BET Humanitarian Award by Michelle Obama

Beyonce Presented with BET Humanitarian Award by Michelle Obama”

The show was a mix of pre-recorded performances and virtual appearances because of the coronavirus pandemic that shut down production of television shows in mid-March.

Beyonce, 38, appeared on the 2020 BET Awards with an inspiring message amidst the Black Lives Matter movement. Girls. And, who helps the world?

A remixed version of veteran NY rap group Public Enemy's 1989 anthem "Fight the Power", featuring photos of this month's street protests, opened the show, whose slogan was "Our culture can't be canceled".

"We have to vote like our life depends on it, because it does", the singer said. You're proving to your ancestors that their struggles were not in vain. Now, we have one more thing we need to do to walk in our true power and that is to vote. "We have to vote like our life depends on it, because it does".

The show, which celebrates Black excellence in music, film, sports and philanthropy, was filled with speeches, songs, images of protests and the names of dozens of Black men and women who have died at the hands of police in recent years. Wayne Brady, in a glittery suit, rolled around on top of a piano as he sang a medley of Little Richard hits.

DaBaby managed to beat four-time victor Drake to achieve his first award for best male hip-hop artist.

"This is for Nipsey Hussle and hip-hop", Khaled said in a taped video. "Thank you so much for this attractive award", she said.

Public Enemy opened the telecast with a new version of its classic "Fight the Power" with fresh verses by Nas, Black Thought, YG and Rapsody, the last of whom served up some indelible words - "You love "Black Panther" but not Fred Hampton" - about the troubled commodification of Black culture. "That's why she's always pulling up young performers like Chloe x Halle, and that orchestra that dazzled us in her homecoming special", she added.

And Megan Thee Stallion took advantage of the remote-filming circumstances by doing a medley of her "Girls in the Hood" and "Savage" in a "Mad Max"-style desert setting complete with futuristic motorbikes".

The BET Awards will air Sunday on BET and CBS beginning at 8 p.m. EST. "You know the one!" For your security, we've sent a confirmation email to the address you entered.
