Last night's BET Awards was easily one of the most palpable awards show of 2015. With performances by Smokey Robinson, Big Sean, the Empire cast, and Patti LaBelle, a Janet Jackson dance tribute by Tinashe, Jason Derulo, and Ciara, and Diddy's ultimate hip-hop throwback with Lil' Kim (and his hilarious but cringe-worthy on stage tumble), Ma$e, Faith Evans, and 112, the show really highlighted the best of black culture, past and present. 

Although the Internet is busy freaking out about Rihanna's "BBHMM" music video trailer (and the fact that she threw money in BET president of programming Stephen Hill's face), we'd like to take a moment to look back at the red carpet—because attendees really turned it out.
