Young Money

OK, so the 2014 BET Awards was a musical and comedic hit. Pharrell Williams opened the show with an energetic rendition of “Come Get It Bae” surrounded by a bevy of cheerleaders, and was joined by surprise performer and fellow Virginia native, the amazing Missy Elliott, who brought the crowd to their feet to “Pass That Dutch.”

Chris Rock hosted the 14th annual event which was taped live at Nokia Theatre LA and he held it down with jokes about why folks are tuning into “Scandal” on Thursdays at 10 p.m. and Kevin Hart getting work to Rick Ross’ man boobs.

Williams became a familiar face on the stage after winning both “Best Male R&B/Pop Artist” and “Video of the Year,” and again coming on to present music icon Lionel Richie with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Young Money and Beyoncé took home the most trophies with three awards, as did acclaimed film “12 Years A Slave” which swept the film award categories. Pharrell Williams and August Alsina each won two awards.
