The 22nd annual BET Awards aired Sunday night, with Taraji P. Henson returning as host for “culture’s biggest night.” Presented live from the Microsoft Theater, the star-studded event featured a roster of fresh and familiar talent, including electric performances by Lizzo, Jack Harlow, Lil Wayne, Roddy Ricch and Chance the Rapper.

Since 2001, the BET Awards have celebrated Black excellence in entertainment and the creative arts in TV, film, music, marketing and sports.

The honoree of the night was Lifetime Achievement Award winner Sean “Diddy” Combs, whose singular career as artist, producer and mogul was paid tribute to in a medley performance by long-time collaborators Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Lil Kim, Busta Rhymes and Faith Evans. The celebration was capped off by a surprise speech from a mask-clad Kanye West, lauding the esteemed producer for his contributions to the world of hip-hop since the early 90s.
