WATCH: Migos’ 2018 BET Awards Performance

Migos took the 2018 BET Awards by storm with a performance of their hit single “Walk It Talk It.”

The show’s host Jamie Foxx introduced the group dressed down in the same 70’s/80’s Soul Train gear he wore in the music video.

With the help of a few female dancers, Migos killed their performance before transitioning into their other hit “Stir Fry.”

Although Drake didn’t show up, the crowd was very hype throughout the duration of the performance.

WATCH: Miguel’s 2018 BET Awards Performance

Miguel was the first R&B artist to perform at this year’s BET Awards.

Elegantly dressed in an all-white suit, Miguel swooned the ladies with “Come Through and Chill”—one of the standout tracks off his 2017 album War & Leisure.

Miguel then went into a swagged out performance of his feel-good hit “Skywalker.”

In addition to belting out pure vocals, Miguel also managed to break out into a few dance moves to keep the crowd entertained.

WATCH: Nicki Minaj’s 2018 BET Awards Performance

With four samurai soldiers by her side, Nicki Minaj brought an ecstatic performance of her hit single “Chun-Li” to the 2018 BET Awards.

Dressed in a candy apple red mini skirt, Nicki looked like a whole entire snack during her performance and busted it wide open for the crowd, showing all of her goodies, while also performing her Lil Wayne assisted single “Rich Sex.”

The Harajuku Barbie also brought out YG, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean to perform their track “Big Bank” together. During “Big Bank”, Nicki sat on top of a horse statue with a bunch of jockeys surrounding her and proved why she’s still one of the top female rappers in the game.

WATCH: Meek Mill’s 2018 BET Awards Performance

In arguably one of the best BET Awards performances of the night, Meek Mill graced the stage after being introduced by Philly natives Kevin Hart and Lil Uzi Vert and debuted a new song called “Stay Woke.”

Wearing a shirt with a picture of slain rapper XXXTentacion on it, who was shot and killed last Monday, Meek opened his performance up with scenery depicting a normal day in the hood, with kids playing football, a little girl using chalk to draw on the sidewalk, and various goons hanging out on the side of the road.

In the middle of the performance, Miguel joined Meek on the stage and the two performed together before a scene showed the police attacking a group of men in the hood, eventually leading to an innocent little girl being accidentally shot.

As the little girl lays there dead, her mom cries loudly and holds her in her arms while Meek and Miguel continue to rap and sing their parts of the song.

The performance was a chilling depiction of how African Americans are treated in America every day.

WATCH: Ella Mai 2018 BET Awards Performance

After being introduced by Beyonce?’s artists Chloe X Halle, Ella Mai took to the 2018 BET Awards stage to perform her hot new single “Boo’d Up.”

The English singer hit the Nissan stage wearing a black leather jacket and ripped jeans, and performed with a live band backing her up.

The performance was well put together and graceful and reminded us why Ella Mai is one of the biggest upcoming artists in the game. The end of Ella Mai’s set was cut from BET’s live telecast, but they posted the full performance on YouTube.

WATCH: Janelle Monae’s 2018 BET Awards Performance

Janelle Monae brought fire to the BET Awards stage, both literally and figuratively.

Wearing her signature black-and-white colors, this time with a hint of red, Janelle Monae—accompanied by a bevy of female dancers, also wearing black, white and red—put on one of the best performances of the night.

Janelle’s set kicked off with “Django Jane.” She was surrounded by her dancers while she sat atop a golden throne spitting bars with fire shooting up from the ground around her. She later segued into “I Like That,” which she sang flawlessly.

Janelle Monae gave us a full package performance: Bars, vocals, visuals, sick dance moves, and straight up FIRE.

Snoop Dogg’s 2018 BET Awards Performance

After host Jamie Foxx spoke on the untimely death of rapper XXXTentacion, Snoop Dogg hit the stage to perform a medley of his hits at the 2018 BET Awards.

Snoop started his performance off with his throwback tracks “Who I Am (Whats My Name)” and “The Next Episode.” He then took the crowd to church dressed in a choir robe and rapped “Sunrise,” a track from his Gospel album Bible of Love.

Before exiting the stage, Snoop was joined by gospel singer Tye Tribbett and performed an electrifying performance of “You”—another standout track from Bible of Love, which was released back in March. Host Jamie Foxx joined the pair near the end of the set, which eventually closed out the show.
