BET Awards 2022: The Full Winners List

    The 2022 BET Awards took place on Sunday night (June 26), with Taraji P. Henson hosting for the second year in a row. Sean “Diddy” Combs received a Lifetime Achievement Award during the event, which celebrated the industry legend with a tribute performance from Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, and more. The ceremony also featured performances from Latto, Chlöe, and Jack Harlow (who wore a Lil Nas X T-shirt in support of his ‘Industry Baby’ collaborator, who criticized the network for snubbing his chart-topping debut album), while Bruno Mars accepted the award for album of the year for An Evening With Silk Sonic, his collaborative record with Anderson .Paak.
