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.
