The best award shows allow at-home viewers to feel as if they are an integral part of the show’s festivities. After a year of us being cooped up inside, the 2021 BET Awards gave us LIFE! From the preshow to the performances to the award recipients, this show will definitely go down in the books for one of the best BET Award Shows. And, it has definitely set the standard for other shows to come, just like the NAACP Image Awards did.

The bar has definitely been set high from here on out. Closing out Black Music Month with a bang, here are a few of the best moments throughout the entire show just in case you missed it. No need to thank us; just relax and enjoy.
