Bruno Mars kicks off BET Awards

Michelle Obama pays tribute to Chance the Rapper via a video at the 2017 BET Awards at Microsoft Theater on June 25, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

The all-female quartet Xscape, featuring LaTocha and Tamika Scott, Kandi Burruss and Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, reunited at the award show with a medley of their hits including "Just Kickin' It", "Understanding" and "Who Can I Run To?".

While Nicki is still undoubtedly the most popular woman rapping right now, Remy did make a strong case to win the award and she was given it on Sunday night.

Mars has been on an R&B adventure with his latest album, "24K Magic", which was inspired by '90s R&B.

Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles won the centric award for her track, "Cranes in the Sky".

And if you're wondering why she's boasting about her accomplishments, it's because that's exactly what "they" don't want her to do.

The 31-year-old singer-songwriter-producer is also nominated for best male R&B/pop artist, going up against Chris Brown, The Weeknd, Usher and Trey Songz. "'Oh, so you trying to one-up me?"

"Black-ish" actress Yara Shahidi, who won the young stars award, noted in her acceptance speech that the night was also the birthday of Tamir Rice, who was 12 when he was shot in Cleveland in 2014.

Bruno Mars has won the BET Award for best male R&B pop artist - his first award from a network that he credits with catapulting him to stardom.

Another expected set of wins - five, to be exact - was for Beyoncé, who took home both Best Female Pop/R&B Artist (also nominated: Rihanna, Solange, Mary J. Blige, and Kehlani) and Album of the Year for Lemonade. Other nominees include Missy Elliott, Young Ma and Cardi B.

Another emotional moment came when Chance the Rapper accepting the Humanitarian Award.

The show wasn't without its technical glitches, forcing host Leslie Jones to ad-lib awkwardly at one point and driving Jamie Foxx off-script during another, but such stumbles were quickly overshadowed by standout performances from Future (with Lamar), Sza, Tamar Braxton, and Maxwell.

Former BET executive Stephen Hill, who the network said was stepping down in March, was praised throughout the night with kind words from Mars and Bobby Brown.
