"I wanna thank God first and foremost", said Ma, who named two correctional facilities in her speech and thanked her mentor Fat Joe and husband-rapper Papoose. Gas me. I was gonna say it feels a little early to get something like this. Minaj never officially responded to the song. Serving up tons of subtle-yet-impressive dance moves, and also making sure the audience was "all the way live", there was no denying that this was the flawless way to start the show. "I don't really go out, so on the occasion I do go out, it just feels like I'm so popular in high school", she joked.

On an unrelated news, when was the last time you saw Chance without a hat? He and Beyonce tied for video of the year - the top prize but not televised - with their hits "24K Magic" and "Sorry".

Bruno Mars opened the awards show with a high-energy performance that included his group of dancing bandmates and pyrotechnics. And thanks to all the fans, my Bey Hive, for riding with me. The evening featured performances by Bruno Mars, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled.

Chance spoke from the heart when he picked up a special award at last night's BET awards.

Chance donated $1 million to public schools in his hometown of Chicago in March, led campaigns to give outerwear to Chicago's homeless and even led a march to Chicago voting polls on Election Day 2016.
