What do you get when you put the best and brightest BET stars in one room? 

At the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills earlier this week, it was magic. Kevin Hart, Duane Martin, Bill Bellamy, Lauren London, Richard Roundtree and many more put on their finest for the BET Upfront presentation, an annual event during which the network presents its shows — and stars — to advertisers.

Up in the green room, it was a reunion between the casts of The Game and Real Husbands of Hollywood, with each show's respective cast members reflecting on past seasons and giving us juicy details about the upcoming season. Kevin Hart and Bill Bellamy kept the crowd in stitches, cracking jokes and doing impressions.

But everybody got star-struck when Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan arrived. Cameras and smartphones went in overdrive when the iconic divas hugged it out on the red carpet.

BET's chairman and CEO Debra Lee presided over the event, catching up with the stars, staff and colleagues who have made the network reach unprecedented new heights these past couple of years.
