The BET Awards honors the performances in music, film, television and sports that’ve made the biggest impact on culture over the past year, and the 22nd annual ceremony was no exception.

Held Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and hosted by Taraji P. Henson, the award show saw high-profile figures across every sector of the entertainment industry receive trophies for their work — with show-stopping performances from Lizzo, Chlöe, Jack Harlow and more sprinkled throughout the ceremony.

Leading the BET Awards 2022 nominations was Doja Cat with nods in six categories for her Planet Her album and its singles. Closely following with four nominations each is Drake, recognized for his work on last year’s Certified Lover Boy album, and Ari Lennox for her single “Pressure” and Summer Walker collaboration “Unloyal.”

Other top nominees at the upcoming ceremony included Chlöe, Baby Keem, Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak, Future, H.E.R., Jazmine Sullivan, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Baby, Mary J. Blige, and Tems — who all closely follow Lennox, 31, and Drake, 35, with three nominations each.

Additionally, Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, which has previously gone to the likes of Whitney Houston, Prince and more. The prestigious award aims to praise those “who have not only significantly shaped culture through their extensive careers, but who have also been transformative leaders that consistently inspire generations by setting a true standard of excellence,” according to a press release.
