As BET celebrated the year in music and several artists such as Mary J. Blige, Anita Baker, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne performed, it looks like the night belonged to Chris himself. He won four awards in total and won the first big nod of the night for Male R&B Artist by beating out Bruno Mars, Usher, Trey Songz and Cee Lo Green. Not too shabby!

Beyonce ended the show with a performance from the Glastonbury festival across the pond, according to MTV. From her upcoming album, 4, she performed "Best Thing I Never Had" and "End of Time."
