It was the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, and now we know exactly how it happened.

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)!
Sheer is in!
The Empire actress certainly slayed in her black and silver ensemble as she proved to everyone watching that she is, in fact, ageless. We see you, girl.
However, the Pretend singer one-upped Taraji's outfit by rocking a particularly seXXXy Philipp Plein ensemble. We mean, Tinashe was nearly naked on the red carpet as she showed off her butt (below)!
We told you about her fabulous dancers demolishing their arrival, and now the queen is officially here!!
Guess Yoncé got in all the Hawaiian rest and relaxation she needed!
Bey wore a nude and black Julien Macdonald custom Swarovski crystal encrusted bodysuit — adorned with sequins and fringe — to sing her heart out barefoot in the water. The songstress completed the getup with golden makeup and perfect braids.
Check out another pic of her with performance buddy Kendrick Lamar (below)!
Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are back! In time!
The Black-ish stars are hosting the BET Awards for the second year in a row, and they decided to open the show with a special tribute to Hamilton!
Together, they performed Desiigner's Panda, O.T. Genasis' Cut It, The Weeknd's I Can't Feel My Face, and Rihanna's Sex With Me in the style of the Tony-winning musical — they even brought out R&B singer Anthony Hamilton.
Ch-ch-check out the bizarre Broadway opening (below)!
Somebody please explain this outfit to us. We don't get it…
Is she trying to pay homage to Beyoncé's Lemonade?! If so, it's super sour and undrinkable!
On the plus side, her hair and makeup are absolutely flawless and her Aldo shoes were cute! This girl seriously does NOT age!
Sadly, we are only digging this look from the neckline up!

Beyoncé just stopped the show before it began!
The internet was abuzz hoping that Queen Bey might grace the BET Awards with her sweet presence on Sunday, and the Lemonade singer did not disappoint!
Bey kicked off the show with a crowd-pleasing performance of Freedom and got the stage soaking wet by dancing in the rain with her backup dancers!
Thankfully, Kendrick Lamar was wearing a poncho during his part — but despite all that water, the performance was still fiery hot!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing opening performance (below)!
On Sunday at the BET Awards, Janelle Monáe turned heads with a gorgeous black and white striped sass & bide suit!
The Tightrope songstress accessorized her sexy outfit with a matching black and white clutch, a gold choker, Le Vian rings, and a black hat which totally complemented her look!
Miz Monáe is one of the few fashionistas who could pull off style that's 100% her own! Major points for originality!
However, our only complaint is that she's missing a cane! If she had one, she would look like the baddest pimp in the game!
Keep looking fab, girl!
