Rapper-singer Doja Cat came into BET Awards 2022 Sunday evening with a leading six nominations, but walked away emptyhanded, as did singer Ari Lennox and rapper Drake, who each had four nominations, as the competition was fierce.

Among the winners were The Weeknd, Megan Thee Stallion and Kendrick Lamar. Sean “Diddy” Combs received a lifetime achievement award.

Performances during the event included Babyface, Chance the Rapper, Chloe, Jack Harlow, Lizzo and Roddy Ricch.

The awards, which honor “Black excellence in music, television, film and sports” aired live from downtown’s Microsoft Theatre. Golden Globe-winning actress Taraji P. Henson hosted.
