The powerful moment when Jamie Foxx went off-script

Host Jamie Foxx kicked off the ceremony by telling viewers he was there to celebrate.

Foxx brought “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan to the stage and asked him to recite the powerful line from the film, “Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, cause they knew death was better than bondage.”

Later, Foxx invited Childish Gambino to join him on stage to thank him for his socially conscious song, “This Is America.”

Honoring heroes

John Legend presented Humanitarian Awards to six seriously brave citizens.

“Typically, the BET Awards honors a celebrity humanitarian who has done something extraordinary for our world, but tonight, we want to honor a few of the individuals who have had the opportunity in their everyday lives to do something unexpected and impactful for our community.”

Legend presented awards to the Waffle House hero, James Shaw Jr., Anthony Borges; a student who was shot five times during the Parkland shooting while protecting fellow students, Mamoudou Gassama; the man who scaled a building in France last month to save a flailing infant Naomi Wadler; the impressive 11-year-old who delivered the mind-blowing speech at the March For Our Lives rally in Washington D.C., Justin Blackman; the only teen to walk out of his North Carolina classroom in protest,  and journalist/activist Shaun King. “Don’t be afraid to be a hero,” Legend added.

 Meek Mill performance 

The crowd went crazy when Meek Mill delivered a powerful performance of his latest single, “Stay Woke,” a song inspired by his incarceration and recent release from prison. He donned a hoodie that featured XXXtentacion, the 20-year-old rapper who as shot and killed last week, as well as Jimmy Woppo, who was also shot to death last week. The surprisingly artistic performance was poignant and heartbreaking. If you missed it, watch it below.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj wowed the crowd with her super sexy performance that featured YG, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz for their single, “Big Bank.” She also served up two of her own single, “Chun Li” and “Rich Sex” and got extra freaky on a big, sparkly, fake horse.

H.E.R.

When H.E.R. hit the stage, she proved she’s a force to be reckoned with and delighted fans with her insanely consistent vocals and stirring performance. The artist whose real name is Gabi Wilson delivered her single, “Focus” and then  killed her turn on the electric guitar while being joined by Daniel Caesar for their hit, “Best Part.”
