The BET 2020 Awards happened yesterday.
The show this year was held virtually and performances also came through virtually. DaBaby and Roddy Rich’s performance of Rockstar was easily the best performance of the night. Get some tissues cos you just might cry. Jenniffer Hudson wowed us again with her voice, Lil Wayne’s tribute to his friend, Kobe Bryant was amazing, Meg Thee Stallion went all out for her performance and the recurring theme of racism and police brutality went through in almost all the performances.
