2011 BET Awards: The Show, The Winners

Posted Monday June 27, 2011 12:38 AM GMT

With another year's edition having come and gone, the 2011 BET Awards were held in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday night (June 26).

Taking place at the Shrine Auditorium, the big winner of the night was Chris Brown - who garnered three trophies out of his pack-leading six nominations.

Making for quite the awkward situation, there was a mix-up during the announcement of the Viewer's Choice winner - as Tiffany Greene first named Brown as the winner before then saying Drake and Rihanna were the victors. With Drake accepting the trophy, it was later confirmed that Brown was, indeed, the winner of the fan voted accolade.

Hosted by actor/comedian Kevin Hart, the annual BET event also featured performances by top acts such as Beyonce Knowles, Drake, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Mary J Blige, among many others.

Including special tributes to Steve Harvey as the Humanitarian Award Honoree and Patti LaBelle as the Life Achievement Award winner, other BET winners included Nicki Minaj as Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Kanye West as Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Wiz Khalifa as Best New Artist.
