AceShowbiz - This year's BET Awards was undoubtedly full of show-stopping performances. %cBruno Mars% kicked off the event with a super lively performance. The 31-year-old singer showed off his commanding presence while performing a song off "24K Magic" titled "Perm". Combining spirited harmonizing and slick choreography, Bruno urged the audience to jump out of their seats to dance with him.
%cFuture% stole the night with the performance of his hit banger "Mask Off". Sporting a mask, the rapper delivered his verses over flute-infused music on a dimly-lit set. Future apparently got something up his sleeve as in the middle of his performance, %cKendrick Lamar% appeared onstage to rhyme some slick bars.
After receiving Best Group Award, %cMigos% took the stage again to perform two songs, "Bad and Boujee" and "T-Shirt". %cQuavo% and %cPost Malone% opened the set by performing their collaboration "Congratulations". After Post Malone walked off stage, %cOffset% and %cTakeoff% later joined Quavo to perform "Bad and Boujee". %cQueen Latifah% was spotted mouthing the lyrics among the audience.
%cChris Brown% previewed two tracks off his upcoming double-disc project "Heartbreak on a Full Moon" at the award-giving event. He kicked off his set with a seductive performance of baby-making anthem "Privacy" before teaming up with %cGucci Mane% to deliver a fun and electrifying performance of "Party".
The crowd went nostalgic when %cXscape% reunited onstage to perform their classic hit songs, including "Understanding", "Who Can I Run to" and "Just Kickin' It". It marked the group's first TV performance after going on hiatus for eighteen years.
%cFrench Montana% joined forces with %cSwae Lee% to deliver unforgettable performance. They performed their collaborative track "Unforgettable" while a crew of dancers, who wore a kind of tribal costume, did some choreography behind them.
Another performer who delivered an awesome performance was %cBig Sean%. The rapper belted out a medley of some tracks off his latest album "I Decided", including "Moves", "Sacrifice" and "Bounce Back".
%cMary J. Blige% demanded everyone's attention with her powerful performance. Sporting a sheer silver ensemble, she performed "Set Me Free" before she was joined by %cA$AP Rocky% to belt out "Love Yourself."
Other performers included %cTrey Songz% and %cKhalid%. Trey performed "Nobody Else But You" and "Animal", while Khalid performed a dreamy rendition of "Location".
