Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
So is this one bigger and better?
Well, it's certainly bigger, as it was split up into multiple performances throughout the night. And it all started (above) with the Legendary Roots Crew, along with Erykah Badu and Bilal.
Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker… Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.
Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder — who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute — for a performance of Take Me With U.
It was just OK… but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!
We weren't ready for that jelly!
We've been seeing a lot of Anthony Anderson throughout the 2016 BET Awards — and as the night went on, we saw a whole new side of the Black-Ish star!
Before introducing the next act, the actor turned around to reveal he was actually wearing assless pants!
Like the good sport he is, Anderson even gave his booty a little wiggle for good measure! Work it!
Ch-ch-check out the bootylicious moment (above)!
Pretty much every artist under the sun has performed a moving tribute to Prince since his tragic death in April.
This news comes on the heels of the network trashing Madge's May performance — which featured a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder — insinuating the tribute was underwhelming in a pretty shady tweet.
In a since-deleted video, BET ran a short teaser of the Material Girl's performance, writing "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."
But apparently, they DO got us — because Sheila E.'s involvement will easily make this the most personal Prince tribute yet!
The network also announced Alicia Keys and Maxwell, along with more stars, will also be performing at this year's award show.
Do U think BET's Prince tribute will live up to the hype? Watch the performance when the 2016 BET Awards airs on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET on BET!
Waking up Friday morning, it's still hard to believe Prince is gone.
As the exact cause of death remains unknown, we have gathered details into the days leading up to the music legend's sudden passing at the young age of 57.
Despite reportedly battling the flu, the Kiss singer was supposedly on the mend just before he was found unresponsive in his Minnesota home elevator on Thursday morning.
So what gives?
Take a look at the timeline (below).
Is there anything this wonderful woman CAN'T do?!
On Tuesday, Michelle Obama dropped a song — yes, a SONG — and it's quite the star-studded collaboration!
This Is For My Girls features the vocal prowess of fierce females Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monáe, Lea Michele, Jadagrace, and Chloe x Halle — AKA the singing sisters Beyoncé signed to her production company.
DAMN! That's a lot of lovely ladies!
The jam was created to raise awareness for the 52-year-old's Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to help young women across the globe receive an education.
And while we don't get to hear the First Lady's voice on the Diane Warren-penned track, we do get to hear the girl power anthem on the radio!
Chloe x Halle will also be performing the song at the event!
The track will be available on iTunes at midnight, and all proceeds will go towards the Peace Corps' Let Girls Learn Fund.
But for now, ch-ch-check out some snippets (below)!
Good on 'em!!
Creed director Ryan Coogler put on the "Justice for Flint" event hosted by comedian Hannibal Buress. Other stars in attendance were Ava DuVernay and Jesse Williams, who were among those to enjoy incredible performances by Janelle Monae and Stevie Wonder.
The event aimed to raise $100,000 for the community affected by the terrible water contamination crisis — and as of right now, they've exceeded that goal by $50,000! Woo!
Not to worry, there's no drama here. Coogler said the Academy Awards had nothing to do with the fundraiser being held the same day — but instead to honor Black History Month. He told Buzzfeed:
"With the #JUSTICEFORFLINT benefit event we will give a voice to the members of the community who were the victims of the choices of people in power who are paid to protect them, as well as provide them with a night of entertainment, unity, and emotional healing."
If this were anyone else…
