Rihanna BET Awards 2015

From Rihanna's duct tape prank to Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill's performance together; the 15 moments you NEED to see from the BET Awards.

It was another huge year at the BET Awards, with coverage dominating the tops trends all morning -  and we've got all the best moments right here:


1. P Diddy falling down a huge hole in the middle of the stage. Someone's getting fired for this one!

There's no styling this out, Diddy.


2. Rihanna brought along some props from her S&M video...

And taped the guy to her right, #jokes!


3. Watch, RiRi then goes and throws money in this guy's face. SASSIEST. THING. EVER!

 *Checks coins purse and tries to recreate this...


#GoodGirlGoneBad gone good... It'd seem RiRi's still a good girl deep down though as she kisses and makes friends.


We kissed and made up. #BETAwards . what a night!!

4. The cast of Empire slayed with their performance and managed to get Nicki Minaj singing along!

It's like a WAY cooler Glee.


5. Before becoming a Twitter trend, P Diddy took to Instagram to debate which Kanye kicks to rock on stage, #redthough.


15 minutes before I perform Which one should I wear the #Yeezys or the #DYezzy #BadBoy #BETAWARDS2015 Love #GrooveyLew

If only those trainers had a lights on them, ey Diddy?!


7. Goats made their way on stage! Because it wouldn't be an awards show without a goat.

This is NEARLY as good as Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' goat remix.


8. Cutest moment of the show went to Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill for this PDA.


9. Chris Brown performed 'Ayo' with Tyga and made things super sexy!

Was that Rihanna we caught singing along in the crowd?


10. Nicki Minaj being so psyched to win her award she completely forgot what it was for...



11. Meek Mill introduced his lady to the stage and left Chris Brown third wheeling...

Smashed it!


12. Newcomer Tori Kelly stole the show and sent Twitter crazy with her performance of Jackson 5's 'Who's Loving You'.


13. Oh hey! Alicia Keys came out and surprised us all with her performance of 'Earned It' alongside The Weeknd.


Y'all weren't ready for me to pop up on that stage!! Just getting started... #BETAwards2015
