The 19th annual BET Awards were held Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and, naturally, it was lit.

The show kicked off with a performance by the most nominated artist of the night, Cardi B.

The rapper kept it hot with a lap dance for her husband, fellow artist and Migos member, Offset, as she and a host of dancers turned it out.

Host Regina Hall gave the audience a little Beyoncé/”Homecoming” parody, which played off Hall being a native of Washington D.C.

Singer Sugar Bear kicked off a tribute to D.C.’s go-go music with the classic 1980s song, “Da Butt.”

Hall’s friend and fellow D.C. native Taraji P. Henson hopped on stage to join her in the energetic dance.

Early on Hall noted that the awards had a lot of “Babys,” because of artists like Lil Baby and Dababy being either nominated or slated to perform.

The first award of the night ended up going to rapper Lil Baby for best new artist.

“Black-ish” actress Marsai Martin took home the young stars award.

Tyler Perry is set to receive BET’s Ultimate Icon Award, and Mary J. Blige was this year’s recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down March 31 in Los Angeles near a clothing store he owned, was selected to be posthumously honored with a humanitarian award.
