BET Awards Performances, Ranked Worst to Best

The 2024 BET Awards delivered on the “culture’s biggest night.” Taraji P. Henson played host for the show and kicked things off impersonating Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” performance at his Pop Out concert on Juneteenth.

Live from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday evening (June 30), a versatile range of legends to rising stars hit the stage.

From Will Smith’s return to the public eye with a gospel anthem to Sexyy Red campaigning for a presidential nomination and Megan Thee Stallion’s rebirth opening the show, the BET Awards performances offered a little something for everybody.

Other artists performing throughout the action-packed award show include Shaboozey, Latto, Ice Spice, Victoria Monet, Tinashe, Ms. Lauryn Hill alongside her son YG Marley, GloRilla and more.

Normani was also supposed to be performing Sunday night to continue building on the success of her new DOPAMINE album, but the Fifth Harmony album revealed she was forced to cancel her set after suffering an injury during rehearsals.

It was a celebratory night for plenty of dignitaries across Black music. Usher was the man of the hour while being honored with his lifetime achievement award. He even took home some more hardware with a victory in the best male R&B/pop artist category.

Killer Mike delivered the most boisterous and memorable speech of the entire show when the Atlanta rapper’s poignant 2023 LP Michael won album of the year.
