Beyoncé was honored with the Humanitarian Award at the 2020 BET Awards on Sunday.

She said: "You can see it in everything she does, from her music that gives voice to black joy and black pain, to her activism that demands justice for black lives".

On the BET Awards' virtual red carpet, Megan Thee Stallion made a splash in a Grayscale look.

"We need something to brighten us up, to uplift us", BET Award nominee Karen Clark Sheard, member of the legendary gospel group The Clark Sisters, said about the timing of Sunday's show in an interview with CNN this week. I'm encouraging you to continue to take action, continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system. "Your voices are being heard and you're proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain", she said. "Because there are people banking on us staying at home during local elections and primaries happening in states across the country".

Blue Ivy Carter has become the youngest artist ever to win a BET award. Though we normally never say no to a surprise Beyoncé appearance of any sort, Megan proved with her performance tonight that she can shut any awards show down all on her own. The three-hour event, which aired on CBS for the first time, was hosted by comedian, actress and TV personality Amanda Seales.

Other artists were political during their performances, including Roddy Ricch, who wore a Black Lives Matter shirt while he rapped, Alicia Keys, Anderson Paak and Jay Rock, as well as brothers SiR and D Smoke, who performed with their mother Jackie Gouché.

Public Enemy opened the telecast with a new version of its classic "Fight the Power" with fresh verses by Nas, Black Thought, YG and Rapsody, the last of whom served up some indelible words - "You love "Black Panther" but not Fred Hampton" - about the troubled commodification of Black culture.
