Beyoncé won the most awards with 5, including Album of the Year and Video of the Year.

The 24-year-old rapper won the award for Best New Artist early on in the show and he was later honored with the Humanitarian Award.

The "No Problem" rapper has actively campaigned against gun violence, to promote racial justice and in March, Chance donated 1 million Dollars to Chicago Public Schools and additionally raised more than 2 million USD for the public schools through his Social Works organisation.

Tonight is the BET Awards, and you can BET it's going to be LIT.

Host Frank Stasio talks about the awards, Black Music Month and more with Natalie Bullock Brown, professor of film and broadcast media at St. Augustine's University in Raleigh, and Mark Anthony Neal, professor of African and African-American studies at Duke University in Durham.

After being lauded by fellow Chicagoan and former First Lady Michelle Obama, Chance gave an inspiring, impromptu speech in which he challenged both the politicians in his hometown and himself to do better serving people locally and globally. To be receiving something like this at my age, it feels good as hell.

Looking down the camera lens, he shared: "I had plans originally to try to tell the world and everybody watching how to make it a better place".

"I wanna thank the universe for allowing this moment right here and my wonderful family and friends who have uplifted me", Solange said. So I wanna be a better father.

Chance beat out 21 Savage, Cardi B, Khalid, and Young M.A. for the Best New Artist award.
