It is on this night, that celebrities who have changed lives through their music and movies are recognized by the Black Entertainment Television.
Every year, we look forward to their jaw-dropping outfits and performances. We especially look forward to the mesmerizing speeches from award winners, particularly the winners of, the BET Lifetime Achievement, Humanitarian Award and the Ultimate Icon Award.
Host/Actor/Comedian/Singer Jamie Foxx
This year, the ceremony was hosted by actor, singer, producer and comedian, Jaime Foxx. Even though he promised to “pull no punches” hosting the show this time around, he was still full of surprises, like when he went off script with, “Childish Gambino” . The highlight of the night of course, was when living legend, Anita Baker was presented with the “Lifetime Achievement Award”, after host Jamie Foxx performed a medley of her hit songs. Both the winners and nominees that attended the event, came “dressed to impressed”, as some of your favorites absolutely “slayed” the red carpet in their designer outfits. Here are some of our fashion highlights from the 2018 BET Awards Show:
