Last night was the annual BET Awards held in Los Angeles, it was a night filled with tributes to Prince, a surprise performance from Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar. The focus was on the current political unrest across the globe. Beyonce won video of the year with her song ‘Formation’, but had already left the ceremony on route to London for her World Tour, however, her mother Tina accepted the award on her behalf.
