The 2015 BET Awards was all and more of what was expected. From Memorable moments and performances (especially the Bad Boy Reunion) to special tributes and honors, Sunday night's show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles was one for the history books for the 15th-anniversary airing.
Although she was absent, Beyonce was the night's biggest winner. The international superstar won three awards including Video of the Year for "7/11," Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, and Video Director of the Year.
Chris Brown won Best Male R&B/Pop Artist and his usual Fandemonium Award while Nicki Minaj won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, again, and the Coca-Cola Viewers' Choice Award, which featured Brown.
