The 15th Annual BET Awards aired today and it goes with out saying that awards season is without a doubt my favourite time of the year. This years award show had everything, from a Bad Boy Records reunion which included Faith Evans, Lil Kim, Mase, and Pharrell Williams, to Kendrick Lamar wowing the crowd with a performance of TPAB cut ’Alright’, and more. Despite it’s lack of coverage in Australia, we’ve manage to source some of the best performances of the night in our gallery above.
