The BET Awards do not forget their past!
This year, they're honoring music legend Smokey Robinson with the Lifetime Achievement Award!
Tori Kelly, Robin Thicke, and Ne-Yo all took the stage to perform the legend's hits in a mellow medley honoring the lead Miracle.
And when he went up on stage to accept the award, Mr. Robinson made sure to say a prayer to the big man upstairs, while thanking everyone who helped him get to this point.
But the best part was at the end when Smokey couldn't help but perform his songs too!
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) and be taken back in time!

Justin Bieber is used to playing sold-out arena concerts. But the 21-year-old pop star surprised patrons at The Nice Guy lounge in West Hollywood Friday night with a secret set. And PerezHilton.com has exclusive details from inside Justin's performance!
After hiding in the kitchen for half an hour, Justin emerged and took the small corner stage with guitarist Dan Kanter. A bodyguard stood in front preventing anyone from getting too close.

Wearing a fedora and leather bomber, Justin looked more crooner than pop star. The Biebs sang a set of 4-5 songs, beginning with a cover of NeYo's So Sick and his own hit As Long As You Love Me. Later, he tried out his new song Home To Mama, which was appropriate since his mother Patti Mallette was in the audience.
As he left the stage, Justin thanked the crowd and something surprisingly humble:

Holy hat game!!
These fine musical gentlemen were all about the head accessories at tonight's BET Awards!
We saw Pharrell rocking a taupe noggin' topper with a variety of necklaces, while Ne-Yo continued the lid trend in black with similar neck beads.
Usher took a nod at history, wearing a Davy Crockett-inspired cap.
Lil Wayne used American Horror Story: Coven as a guide for his wide brimmed flopper.
And Chris Brown decided on smooth red velvet for his moment in the chapeau spotlight!
They were all fantastic in their own special way, but we want to know…

We have so many feelings over this AH-mazing duet!
Not only are we obsessed with Canadian Princess Celine Dion as a performer…
But throwing the smooth sound of Ne-Yo into the musical mix has taken us over the edge of excitement—and we're not looking back!
The duo performed their phenom single, Incredible, at The Voice finale on Tuesday night, and it was simply perfect!
You need to watch the (above) magical connection between these two performers….RIGHT NOW!

Incredible is right!!!
Celine Dion and NeYo join forces in their new music video for Incredible and while the coupling might seem odd at first, the results are SUPERB!
Their mixed vocals paired with the montage of Celine's career and majestic landscapes almost brings a tear to our eye.
The only thing that could make the video better would be some face time with Ne-Yo's seXXXy mug!
Ch-ch-check out the moving work of art (above)!!!
