Los Angeles, CA- The 2020 BET Awards was a true statement of all black everything. With this year’s theme of “our culture can’t be canceled,” Black Entertainment Television celebrated its 40th anniversary as a network. The night’s host, actress, and comedian Amanda Seales brought that the witty monologue and nostalgic flavor in between award presentations and performances as she paid odes to BET classic shows like ComicView, 106 & Park, Rap City, Teen Summit, and Bobby Jones Gospel.

To kick off the night of vibrantly-produced performances, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Flava Flav—with the help of Questlove, Nas, Rapsody, YG, Jahi, and viral sensation Keedron Harris—delivered a powerful remix of the duo’s 1989 classic “Fight The Power.” Soon after, Roddy Ricch performed his chart-climbing singles “High Fashion” and “The Box.” John Legend, with the accompaniment of a choir donned in black gowns and suits, sang his “Never Break” in a warehouse at a black grand piano. Up and coming artists like Masego and Lonr performed “Queen Tings” and “Make The Most.”

Megan the Stallion hit the ceremony with a Mad Max-inspired performance of “Girls in the Hood” and “Savage (Remix).” Chloe x Halle delivered a virtual performance of “Do It” and “Forgive Me.” Summer Walker and Usher delivered that good ol’ dose of nostalgia with “Come Thru.” Jennifer Hudson sang “Young, Gifted and Black” in tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Frankin. Jonathan McReynolds and Kodie Shane held it down for their respective genres with “People” and “Worldwide Beautiful,” respectively. Anderson .Paak and Jay Rock delivered the soulful, thought-provoking number “Lockdown.”Last but not least, gospel recording artist and legend Karen Clark Sheard delivered a spiritually uplifting number with her Kierra Sheard in “Something Has To Break”.
