The 2020 BET Awards were held virtually earlier tonight on CBS, BET and BET HER and featured standout performances from Megan Thee Stallion, Anderson Paak, Lil Wayne, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Roddy Ricch, among others. A celebration of the show’s 20th anniversary, and the network’s 40th, Black music’s past, present and future took center stage as host Amanda Seales expertly navigated comedy elements and important messages related to social injustice, inequality and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Lizzo, Roddy Ricch and Megan Thee Stallion were among the winners who appeared via video to accept their awards.
