    SZA didn’t miss a beat when she stepped onto the 2017 BET Awards stage.  Performing with a backdrop reminiscent of the CTRL album cover behind her, the “Love Galore” singer kept things cool in a gray and black ensemble, which featured a gray bodysuit and camouflage chaps.

    Cardi B opened the 2019 BET Awards in grand fashion. The “Press” rapper fabulously showed off her forest-green ensemble as she danced on stage. Just look at the glittery detailing of her sparkling green corset. Perfection!

    The 2020 BET Awards being held virtually due to the pandemic didn’t stop Chloe x Halle from creating a memorable performance. The singing sisters took the virtual stage in matching, but not similar black latex looks while performing “Forgive Me.” 

    The “Do It” singers are nominated for ‘Album Of The Year,’ ‘Best Group,’ and ‘Video Of The Year.’
