Bruno Mars, nominated for 5 honors, to open BET Awards Sunday

Caught on the infamous roaming crowd camera, which has also brought us such memey goodness as Screaming Meryl and Nicole's Cooked Clapping, the petite singer was sprung resting his eyes for a mini little kip. "Whoa", screamed Jamie Foxx, who presented an award after Blige's performance.

Solange performed at Glastonbury festival on Saturday and said she travelled straight from Somerset to the awards in the US. Other nominees include Missy Elliott, Young Ma and Cardi B. Remy Ma earned the title of Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

The artist opened up the show with "Perm". I don't know how to dress.

The young star graciously accepted the award and addressed the audience, calling the honor, the loud cheers of support, and the first lady's message "wildly overwhelming".

She topped Nicki Minaj for the prize, who had won the award for the last seven years.

As for the performances, Bruno Mars, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, Lil Wayne, Mary J. Blige and Trey Songz are expected to perform.

Mars and Beyonce will also compete for album of the year, video director of the year and the viewer's choice award. Minaj has won the honor consecutively since 2010.

Look for sets from throwback acts El DeBarge and New Edition, which will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and was the subject of a recent BET biopic.

Michelle Obama introduced his award by video, praising him for "showing our young people that they matter, that they have something inside of them that is worthy of being expressed, and they have so much to contribute to their community and our country".

Laz Alonso, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore and Jason Mitchell, as part of the cast of "Detroit", honored victims of police killings at the BET Awards Sunday night.

Solange took home the Centric Award at the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 25.

We'll discuss things like how many awards will Beyonce win for being Beyonce?

The BET Awards paid tribute to two '90s era groups with extended performances of soulful, harmony-laced R&B.
