Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, and the Young Money crew were all big winners at the 2014 BET Awards on Sunday night, which were held in Los Angeles. Bey won for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Best Collaboration, and the FANdemonium Award, while Young Money earned the trophy for Best Group. Young Money protégés Drake and Nicki Minaj won for Best Male and Female Hip Hop Artists, respectively, while Pharrell and August Alsina each won two awards. Pharrell also opened the show with an energetic rendition of "Come Get It Bae" surrounded by a bevy of cheerleaders, and was joined by surprise performer Missy Elliott, who offered a throwback tune with "Pass That Dutch." Williams even presented Lionel Richie with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The night was packed with tons of performances, including Chris Brown's return to the BET stage. He sang the track "Loyal," which was amped up even more with appearances by Lil Wayne, Tyga and Travis Barker. Lil Wayne also got the mosh pit popping with "Krazy" and "Believe Me," while Jennifer Hudson showed off her powerful pipes during a performance of "Walk It Out" and the debut of her new single, "It's Your World." Celebrating the 20th anniversary of his first album, Usher performed a medley of his biggest hits, including "Yeah!" "Confessions," "Caught Up" and "Love In This Club," which drew a standing ovation. Nicki Minaj gave an Alice In Wonderland-inspired rendition of "Chi-Raq" and "Pills N Potions," filling the stage with oversized mushrooms and a white rabbit.

T.I. was on hand to spit "No Mediocre," while Iggy Azalea performed her ubiquitous hit single, "Fancy." Robin Thicke gave a heartfelt performance of the new song "Forever Love," and then another blast from the past came when surprise acts Troop, Color Me Badd and Silk each took the stage for a '90s throwback medley of "All I Do Is Think of You," "I Wanna Sex You Up" and "Freak Me." A taped performance of Beyoncé and Jay Z doing "Partition" capped off the night.
