KANYE WEST , MARY J BLIGE , JAMIE FOXX WIN BIG AT BET AWARDS

 

Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx and Chris Brown were all double winners at Tuesday's (June 27) BET Awards.

 

Damon Wayans hosted the performance-packed awards program, which recognizes the best in hip-hop, R&B, gospel and music videos, as well as athletes and actors.

 

Blige won female R&B artist. And in a tie, she and West shared the award for video of the year. Blige won for “Be Without You,” which features Terrence Howard, who was named best actor while West and Foxx won for “Gold Digger,” which was also chosen as best collaboration.

 

Seventeen-year-old Brown took home viewer's choice, for his “Excuse Me Miss,” and best new artist.

 

Other winners included Missy Elliott for female hip-hop artist and Kirk Franklin for gospel artist.

 

"So many people owe BET a lot," Franklin said before the show. "Every African-American who's in music, television or film, BET has got us into this. And there's a lot of us."

 

NBA star LeBron James claimed the male athlete trophy, and Chaka Khan was lauded for lifetime achievement.

 

"I am so honored to be honored by my people. This means everything to me," she said as Stevie Wonder, Prince, India Arie and Yolanda Adams joined her on stage for a five-song celebration.

 

While the ceremony included high energy performances by acts such as Busta Rhymes, Keyshia Cole and crooner Ne-Yo, it was the surprise appearances from Eminem and Janet Jackson that brought the crowd to their feet.
