Chris Rock hosted the awards, which featured an incredible number of performers ranging from Best New Artist winner August Alsina to Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Lionel Richie. While receiving his big honor, the techs at the BET awards misspelled Richie’s name on the screen, writing it “R-I-T-C-H-I-E” instead.

Other performers included T.I. and Iggy Azalea, who performed their single “No Mediocre” before going into Azalea’s hit “Fancy,” and Nicki Minaj , who performed “Chi-Raq” and “Pills N Potions.” Robin Thicke also performed, making another awkward plea to his estranged wife Paula Patton. Thicke dedicated the song to her, saying, “I miss you and I’m sorry.”
On the red carpet, Keke Palmer turned heads with a revealing cut out dress by Alon Livnedress. The metallic mini featured a deep v-neck and cutouts on her hip bones.
