LOS ANGELES — Hate if you want. But the BET Awards just keep gettin’ better and better. The stars were out in accretion Sunday night at the Microsoft Center in Los Angeles where rabid fans were treated to a series of riveting recitals and impassioned tributes. Hell, even Xscape performed. Comedian Leslie Jones made her hosting debut and absolutely nailed it. Among the night’s many honorees were Chance the Rapper (winner of the Humanitarian Award), R&B group New Edition (Lifetime Achievement Award) and Solange Knowles (Centric Award winner).

Bruno Mars took home his first two BET Awards, earning accolades for ‘Best Male R&B/Pop Artist’ and ‘Best Video’ for his electric nightclub conception “24K Magic.” The special night, however, wasn’t absolved from enmity. Solange appeared to intentionally shun big sister Beyoncé while giving thanks to a wide range of inspirational female artists.
Word on the street claims Solange was jaundiced after losing out to her sibling in the ‘Best Female R&B’ category. “I just want to thank BET for my teenage years, giving me images of queens like Missy Elliot and Lil’ Kim and Aaliyah and Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill and Kelis and Reese, and the list goes on,” she said.
Beyoncé, who recently welcomed twins, didn’t attend.
She did, however, win a quintet of awards.
Beyoncé was by far the night’s biggest winner.
