In the acting categories, Taraji P. Henson was awarded with best actress and while Moonlight star Mahershala Ali won best actor, the same can’t be said for the Oscar-winning film. Hidden Figures, which was a surprise hit at the box office, starring Taraji, Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer, came out victorious.

Future brought out Kendrick Lamar for Mask Off, while Chris Brown performed two tracks – Privacy and Party – in front of his ex Karrueche Tran (despite the restraining order).

Other performances include SZA and an incredible medley from Xscape.
