There was no "I" in team at the 2013 BET Awards, as a number of top artists paired off on Sunday night to present a series of stunning performances.
The evening began with a performance from "Fandemonium" award winner Chris Brown, who tapped the talent of the late Aaliyah along with Nicki Minaj for his set.
And it only got better from there.
Hosted by Chris Tucker, the 2013 BET Awards also saw Ciara steam up the ceremony with Nicki Minaj in her sultry performance of her cut "Body Party":
And Mariah Carey gave a "Beautiful" performance with Miguel and Young Jeezy, although Twitter didn't quite believe that Carey was singing live. Her husband Nick Cannon assured E! News that those high notes were "all her," and either way, Carey looked and sounded flawless, whether she had an assist or not.
The tribute to the night's lifetime achievement award recipient, Charlie Wilson, was also a high point of the night. Jamie Foxx, India.Arie, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Snoop Lion all participated, but it was Wilson himself who proved that he's just as powerful a performer as ever.
R. Kelly, suited in a jacket with more spikes than should be considered safe, also performed a solid - and theatrical! - performance of some of his greatest hits:
Although Drake was the lead nominee ahead of Sunday's show, it was Kendrick Lamar who was the one to watch. The "Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City" rapper accepted both the best new artist and the best male rap artist honor, in addition to landing the best rap collaboration win with A$AP Rocky, Drake and 2 Chainz.
While the timing of his best new artist win, which came right before he took the stage to perform, meant that he was a no-show, Lamar made up for it when he accepted the best male rap artist trophy.
Janelle Monae closed out the show in style with Erykah Badu, who joined the "Electric Lady" on stage for a regal performance of "Q.U.E.E.N."

From this moment on, I am going to start changing my posts to positive messages for young people struggling with the crippling of having a fecal illness. Some people cannot pass stool's like you and I, they constantly leave runny, trails of poo instead of good solid hard turds. This is called Fecalicious and is not life threatning. Although there are not many high profile cases, Rihanna has recently told Rolling Stone of her problems with fecal consistency.
Has anyone ever noticed it's almost always someone over weight that likes to talk about poop.
I probably weigh less than your giant hippo sized lumps of dung that you leave all around your unkept house.
Hey M.A.P, don't get mad, get glad. Fat man
I am NOT fat!!! I am actually VERY skinny. And my secret to staying this thin? Laxitives! Yes, they really work, simply poo those extra kilos out and flush them away or keep them in jars all around your unkept house like BIG SHIZ does (he uses the natural gas from his turds to fuel candles, saving him money from his electricity bill. Only disadvantage is the awful smell of feces in his messy house).
I have seen, with 100% certainty, everyone with "Big" in their name, is obese, sweaty and typically blaque. Right, Biggie Sharts?
The reason M.A.P is so obsessed with sh it is because that's what his life is. Sh it
Very clever SHIZ. Why don't you try cleaning your disgusting apartment before you spend all day eating you mothers food and trolling on here. Oh yeah and all thos glass ljars filled with poo in your house are wierd.
M.A.P, don't try to put you're life into mine. I have a house you have a apartment. You've never been with a woman and you're a grown man. I find you hilarious
Oh wow, you're a f-ing Genius!! Yeah, I never been with a woman 'cause ima F.A.G. And? what else you got? Fat pig.
Janine said hard looking for a young woman
Fan of Jess congrats
When you pass away is you're trailer home from being a fat gross hick I hope you're 50 cats eat you.
sweetie there is no truth because nobody is on the other end...its called hacking and delusions that do not exist.
CNN, you cam moderate these nuts.
We could, but I think M.A.P. is kinda hilarious. And you are also one of the troll types, no?
I just speak the truth, like you're the troll.no?
I officially dub thee: Big Shart!
I think it's very appropriate! :)
I'm not always a troll. Sometimes I write really meaningfull posts that help people through tough times! Just see the motivational posts I left for Rihanna on the BET Awards blog. I am a healer and a helper and I love all people!
Hacker? I've been on these blogs a long time. The cnn people use all caps, plus they don't care.
CNN should moderate BIG SHIZ off the blog permanatly. His postings are dull, facist, and make me sick. So calling people "gay" is the best insult you can think of? Wow you must be like 14 year old fat kid in your moms house eating fatty oily foods all day and I bet you always have runny turds because filthy lazy fat slobs like you always do. It's really gross. I bet YOU've never been with a woman and you consider yourself hetro. Pathetic!
Are you a blind hacker? I am talking about the gay basher BIG SHIZ. Yknow it's usually closet gays who are so hom-oph-obic? Im not offended bwecause he called me a fg, but im offended that he thinks its a funny insult to call someone gay. Yeah, and so what if I am? That is a really sh!tty way to look at life.
Can you PLEASE try and type ONE FCKNG message that makes ANY SENSE AT ALL? You are a sloppy sloppy troll.
your dik is up in the air and nobody wants it, there never is a dial out and she maybe a lesbian...hello?
I hear that Rihanna never crapps solids – all slop.
NEVER sit in a seat after Rihanna was there. You'll get slop all over your new pants.
What do you call a Rihanna on a kids plastic slope? Slop 'n' Slide.
Rihanna is an amazing talent in the industry.
I agree with you! The slop she produces is of the highest quality and consistency.
Still, I was not away of the slop industry. I've heard of the fecal sludge industry, but never straight up slop.
Rihanna suffer from bi polar do not make fun of her.
Well I'm sure she's on enough medication that my fecal humor won't push her over the edge, jesus christ! Poor Rihanna, it must be soooo hard to be a multi millionar who does nothing all day except slide around in her own slop and complain. So sick of her.
Can you imagine if there was a WET awards show. Reverend Sharpton would be all over that
Just watching this "mess" last night reminded me why I haven't watched this crap in years... Stevie Wonder was just making stuff up as he was "singing"... and Snoop... should have just stayed home because he was annoying as hell... but I'm sure somebody liked it.

Charlie Wilson so awesome! Justin Timberlake SO HOT!!! I could do without all the cursing and nsaty rap crap
This world is going to hell when most of this is nothing but one nasty mouthed word after another..... BET really, you want people to think this is your style... man 90 % of this was just garbage
MOTOWN now that was freakin music... most of this would have those motown era singers cringing
It's nice in Hell right now, Joe. You don't even need a jacket. We're all looking forward to seeing you here in a few years. Keep up the "good" work there on Earth in the meantime.
Joe – I'm in hell too! "Ohhh the paaaiiin" etc. So we're thinking of throwing you a suprise "welcome to hell" party. What kind of torturing devices would you be interested in trying? I love the ball stretcher.
It's the Klan. Such a lack of diversity. Why all the hate and intolerance.
it's a big job, requiring a heavy duty, durable tool.
And I've been on 4chan...
He'll be glad to paint you.
WE FIND THE 3 REVOLTING AND EVERYONE IS TOO RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITY ...IT TERMS OUR FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS IT IS NOT TOO EVER LOOK AT THIS WEBSITE OF HAVE ANYTHING TOO DO WITH THE 3 ...THANKS.
B.E.T. the approved of racism.
Whenever an article appears about black or gay performers, all the "good" little conservatives show up to spew their "wisdom." No wonder they're known as the party of hate.
1. is sunday
2. is deboring
3 and 4.....hmmmmm
3. Your underwear is so badly smeared with feces that people can see the stain from the outside of your pants and they don't want to sit next to you on the train because you smell like human waste.
4. You make pictures with your own poo on your own walls at home and that is what us psychiatrists call "abnormal".
one of the best awards show in the music industry
The gave hozo the clown, niki minage an award. You may want to rethink how wrong your statement is.
I KNOW HOW TO BE INVINCIBLE BY PUTTING POOP ON MY FACE IN THE DARK!
They already have WET. Women's entertainment. Personally although its racist, they should have BET so that we know not to watch it. Tyler Perry's House of Pain? Give me a break. It looks like some talentless hood rats were taken off the street to make a tv show. Leave that crap on BET and leave the time slot open for something even mildly entertaining.
constantly telling the black guy too leave the industry and then handing him beer after that is called manipulation
constantly tell the actor to leave is manipulation
Call me when the WET "White Entertainment Television" come out. Oh wait! That would be racist...but the BET is ok? Double standard!!
I cant believe they say blacks can intertain.Am I racist?Duh.
It's called MTV, VH1 and just about 80% of all the other channels out there! There are more Hispanic entertainment channels than Black channels. And what about gender? Shouldn't you be offended by all the Female-centered or Male-centered channels out there?
Oh and don't forget the Christian Channels... I guess you'd be upset if they had Muslim channels wouldn't you?
Name an African-American show that's on during prime time.
That would be ABC, NBC,CBS and FOX. BET was created because african americans couldn't find roles and people who looked like them on TV. We started our own. Instead of complaining, as we are accused of quite often, we did something about it. Just like african americans are now shown (a little) on those networks, caucasians are also featured on BET. I don't hear you complaining about Univision and the like. Troll.
Awwww...it must be terrible being a part of such a repressed minority as the caucasions, huh Sokman? Why don't you tell us about how you have it so hard?
To all that replied the stations that are for whites.Get a life.If it had the word white in it ShARPAIETON AND jACKDADDYSON WOULD HAVE A MILLION MAN MARCH.

YOU FORGOT 12:17!
You may want to have your keyboard looked at. When you type a "T" it is coming out as a "Z."
And you forgot to put dik in the middle of you're name where it belongs. Sokdikman
THAT'S the best you have? Wow. That was pretty lame... From the race that brought you such greats as: "Yo momma so fat..." disses... I just expected more. Pathetic.
I've always wondered – do you white supremacy / Klan types sit around the house in your pointy hoods and white sheets, or is that just something you wear outside for special occasions? Have you taught your hatred to your children as well?
M.A.P., you calling me racist is like Bush trying to say Snowden hurt this country.
Way to go, nothing like a good change up. I respect that
Wow you're smart. You're iq must at least be 72.
Yea, you're a genius.
And how does M.A.P take a poop? He opens his mouth.
I bet the only pusey you've ever seen is when you where born.
Dam yo, you shouldn't talk about you're moms pusey like that. That must have been horrible to go through. No wonder you've never been with a woman.
You ain't true Blue. Toll hoe
Cause if’n you ain’t, and the Aryan Brotherhood finds out, they gonna kick you outta the club, among other things…
You sure know how to stir the sh!tpot don't you!! I am a bit upset that I missed the entire argument, I hope you weren't being racist again!
I was referring to Sokman not you! I though we were friends!?
How could I have anything but the highest respect for someone with a username like "BIG SHIZ". It's an inspiration to people like me all over the world!
Thanks! It might be 72. Is that good? *fart*
Cheer up Shizzy, it's not so bad. How about a little bit of fecal humor? Would that cheer you up? How many plops on average do Mexicans make when they poop? None – it's a constant stream.
Oh dear. The SHIZ man is actually a 13 y.o. with no clue. How sad. I bet your turds don't even smell yet.
I don't want to think how your mothers giant vadgy looks, especially because you probably would have filled it with your pre-birth poop. A big marine animal vomiting feces from its mouth. A giant squid like creature that oozez gunk and smells like a public toilet in a seafood market.
Your h0m0ph0bic remarks have no power over me because Im alresady a dirty F.A.G. so you can keep those coming you lazy fat turd.
