BET Awards 2021 Recap — Full List Of Award Winners & Performances

Meg Thee Stallion wins big at the 2021 BET Awards, Cardi B shows off baby bump, DMX celebrated in touching tribute

The BET Awards was another star-studded affair as many notable names across entertainment, sports, television, music, and film were all in attendance in the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

This was a return back to the crowds as last year was a virtual ceremony. This show was back to being held in person with a vaccinated audience.

Hosted by Taraji P Henson, the theme of the show was ‘Year Of The Black Woman’ and this theme was consistent throughout the entire show. Taraji dressed up as many famous women throughout the night — from Erykah Badu to Tina Turner and she provided a light-hearted backdrop and a good level of entertainment value to the show.

Along with the many awards given throughout the show (and there were many awards given out), this year’s BET Awards was said to be the highest amount of performers in the ceremony’s history.

From Lil Nas X exciting and vibrant performance to Migos and Cardi B (who showed her baby bump to the world) shutting the stage down, to a touching tribute to the late DMX — the 2021 Bet Awards delivered on every front when it came to artists putting on a show.
