BET Awards 2012: List of Winners!

by at . Comments

Beyonce came, saw and conquered the 12th annual BET Awards.

She "only" one won award, but by flashing that big smile every time cameras cut to her (approximately every 10 seconds), she was the star of the evening.

Her man, Jay-Z, took home a pair of awards (Best Group and Best Video), so it was a successful night for the parents of Blue Ivy Carter all around.

With Samuel L. Jackson handling hosting, and stars such as Bey, Jay, Chris Brown Kanye West and Nicki Minaj on hand, there was mega-star wattage.

Minaj's performance and the lack of censorship are sure to cause some people headaches today, while lighter and heavier moments were abundant.

Jokes were made about Lauryn Hill's tax problems and Kanye's cutting off Taylor Swift at the MTV VMAs. His GF Kim Kardashian was present as well.

Finally, a moving Whitney Houston tribute by Mariah Carey, Monica, Brandy and the late star's mom Cissy Houston left nary a dry eye in the venue.

Very good


yeah,what bou' Rihanna she's had the best records this year!!she deserves some juice too


Ms Ri you need to get a life and stop hating. B E T is a black show not just for blacks to view. Its for anyone who understands that there are different people in this world and we are all uinque in are own way. There is good and bad in every race. BET I think you for celberating us as people I tip my hat to you.


This BET show is the same show every year. All the blacks know how to do is SCREAM> granted they are talented, but it's a 3 ring-circus every year. Although i did like the tribute to Whitney Houston. But now they should put it to rest. (NO pun intended) but ENOUGH ALREADY. She wasn't God. The mother, i felt really bad for, she aged considerably, which is understandable. I don't get why she would even sing. Nicki Minaj is totally disgusting, and gets me sick. Kim Kardashian is a disgrace sitting front and center with her classless bf Kayne West. She is nothing but a WIGGA. I counted 2 white people in the whole show. I watched out of curiosity, but will never watch again. THis show is totally based on bias, and just for Black people only. It truly sickens me. nuff said......


Congrats to Common! First award of the night and much deserved. Still bumpin that Dreamer/Believer


SO Who won best male hip hip award


I'm for Beyonce all the way. BUT what about Rihanna, she's had hit after hit, don't they realise how much skill there is to consistently sing out of tune, on hit after hit ? .... or maybe we don't. lmao
