Beyonc's message, epic performances stand out at BET Awards

By JONATHAN LANDRUM Jr.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Beyoncé used her platform Sunday while accepting the BET humanitarian award to relay a direct appeal to viewers: Go vote.

“Your voices are being heard and you’re proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain,” said the superstar singer at the BET Awards, which celebrated its 20 years of highlighting excellence in Black-led entertainment. But the ceremony, filmed virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic, kept much of its focus on topics such as systematic racism and equal rights.

Beyoncé was honored for her philanthropic work and relief efforts during the COVID-19 crisis. She said voting in the upcoming election was the way to end a “racist and unequal system” in America.

“I’m encouraging you to take action,” she said following an introduction by former first lady Michelle Obama.

1. The whole awards show from the beginning intro on was great except for a few brief major technical

glitches but it’s all new now trying to coordinate everything remote they actually did a great job
and none of that stuff detracted from the main focus of the show anyway.
A lot of GOTV on the show too
She does a lot of good besides all her creativity and talent
Kane Brown was very inspiring too imo
