Last night, Sunday July 1st, the 2012 BET Awards took place.  If you missed it, I've got a re-cap of the show right here.

Nicki Minaj once again walked away with The Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award and during the show performed "Champion" and her mega hit "Beez In The Trap".  Here's a recap of that performance.
The night couldn't go by without doing a tribute to both Donna Summer and Whitney Houston. Chante' Moore did the Donna Summer Tribute. Monica Opened the Whitney Houston tribute followed by Whitney's brother Gary and her mother Cissy who did a touching rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water".
Tons of awards were handed out throughout the night. Jay-Z, Kanye West, Chris Brown and Beyonce all walked away with two awards each. Maze and Frankie Beverly were honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award and Al Sharpton was given the Humanitarian award. Another big surprise of the night was the first performance in 12 years by D'Angelo.
Two crews in particular set the stage on fire, Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Group and Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music Group did it way big!
