Yesterday in Los Angeles, the prestigious Black Entertainment Awards were held, during which African-Americans and representatives of other national minorities of the United States were rewarded for their achievements in the fields of music, theater, sports and other fields. This year, the ceremony was held online due to the coronavirus pandemic, so viewers could watch everything that happened from their live screens.
Amanda Seel became the leader of the 2020 BET Awards – she was the one who introduced the nominees and the speakers to the public. The leader in the number of nominations this year was rapper Drake – there were six, five each with rapper Megan Thee Stallion and rapper Roddy Ricch, four with Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Lizzo and DaBaby.
This year, the eight-year-old daughter of rapper Jay-Z and Beyonce Blue Ivy was also nominated for the award. The girl was known for working on Brown Skin Girl, one of the songs from the official Lion King soundtrack. As a result, the baby managed to bypass the rivals in the nomination and pick up the figurine – the path is even virtual.
Naomi Campbell, Michelle Obama and many others also appeared on the air during the ceremony. The American soul duo Sister Chloe x Halle, Jennifer Hudson, the rapper Lil Wayne and not only delighted their audience with their online performances. By the way, the latter performed a song at the ceremony in memory of the tragically deceased basketball player Kobe Bryant.

Lil Wayne pays tribute to Kobe by performing her song “Kobe Bryant”, which was inspired by the performance of WCF when the Lakers beat Denver in 6 games. It updates the words to the original version and also launches a new verse. #BETAwards pic.twitter.com/QnqL8PWejn
