What Was Your Favorite 2020 BET Awards Performance? Vote!

The 2020 BET Awards performances Sunday night (June 29) redefined what it means to take the stage, especially from one’s home. But whose artistic vision got the most attention?

Megan Thee Stallion’s Mad Max movie stunts put the “Girls in the Hood” out on Fury Road for an epic adventure with her crew’s rhinestoned ATVs and “Savage” dance moves minus Beyoncé, who received the BET Humanitarian Award during the socially distanced broadcast.

Like Megan’s Black power fist and “Black Lives Matter” signs decorating the scaffolding stage, DaBaby began his Roddy Ricch-assisted performance of their No. 1 hit “Rockstar” (the Black Lives Matter remix) with a powerful visual. DaBaby laid down on the ground, hands behind his back, while a white police officer pressed his knee onto the rapper’s neck, the same way former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin restricted Floyd for eight minutes and 46 seconds in a move that ultimately resulted in his murder.

More BET Awards performances honored Black men who passed away this year, from Lil Wayne revamping his 2009 “Kobe Bryant” track featuring the late Los Angeles Lakers legend’s highlight reel to Wayne Brady performing Little Richard’s hits “Lucille” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” for the award’s show tribute to the pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll.

This awards show also paired some prominent family members for their performances, with sisters Chloe x Halle constantly showing everyone up with their at-home productions, brothers D Smoke and SiR juxtaposing Black strife with Black excellence during their moving set, and mother-daughter duo Kierra Sheard and Karen Clark-Sheard calling on God for Kierra’s gospel number.
