Best Female R&B Artist – Beyoncé

Beyoncé capped off an amazing 12 months — which saw her drop an acclaimed, chart-topping new album, 4, and become a new mother — by winning Best Female R&B Artist. "I fell in love with music by listening to R&B; it’s the core of who I am," a glowing Beyoncé said before dedicating her award to Whitney Houston. "I want to thank BET for giving R&B a home."
