The 2018 BET Awards took place on Sunday June 24 in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater, hosted by actor and musician Jamie Foxx.

During the awards show, Black Panther won the award for Best Movie, while SZA took home a prize for Best New Artist.

Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Ella Mai and Janelle Monáe delivered memorable performances throughout the evening.

Meek Mill played his highly anticipated new single "Stay Woke" - his first new offering since being released from prison in April.
