Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'Otis' clip is chosen as Video of the Year, Beyonce Knowles and Alan Ferguson win Video Director of the Year, and Mindless Behavior grab the Viewers' Choice Award.
More winners at the 2012 BET Awards have been announced, with Jay-Z and Kanye West taking home another trophy. After winning Best Group earlier that night, the rapper duo known as The Throne were presented with Video of the Year prize for their "Otis" clip featuring Otis Redding.
On stage, Jigga pulled a joke on Yeezy by interrupting his acceptance speech. "Excuse me Kanye, I'm gonna let you continue, but ...," the "Empire State of Mind" rhymer said, reminding audience of Yeezy's infamous interruption of Taylor Swift's speech at MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.
For this honor, Jigga and Yeezy defeated the former's wife Beyonce Knowles, who playfully hit her husband following the winner announcement, and Usher. The "H*A*M" hitmakers also had their "Ni**s in Paris" clip in contention for the title.
Though losing to The Throne for the Video of the Year title, Queen Bey has had her second win that night in Video Director of the Year category. Sharing the title with Alan Ferguson, she bested Yeezy, Chris Brown & Godfrey Tabarez, Benny Boom as well as Hype Williams. Her first victory was for Best Female R&B Artist.
Before Beyonce took the stage to receive her Video Director Award, Mindless Behavior were called to accept Coca-Cola Viewer's Choice Award. They band's song was chosen among other strong contenders: Beyonce's "Love on Top", Breezy's "Turn Up the Music", Drake's "The Motto" featuring Lil Wayne & Tyga, Jigga & Yeezy's "Otis", as well as Wale & Miguel's "Lotus Flower Bomb".
Samuel L. Jackson is hosting this year's BET Awards which is currently taking place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Kanye West, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Usher and Nicki Minaj were among those catering the audience with their musical performances. More winners are going to be announced shortly.
