The 2017 BET (Black Entertainment Television) Awards took place on 25 June at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, bringing together the best and most promising talent from within the African-American community and other minorities. The event was hosted by Saturday Night Live regular Leslie Jones, with the night's two-award winner Bruno Mars performing the evening's opening act.

Beyonce, who led the nominations with seven mentions, went on to bag four awards, one of which, she shared with Mars. Her track Sorry and Mars' 24K Magic both won video of the year.

Chance the Rapper was another of the night's big winners. He was named Humanitarian awardee and took home trophies for best collaboration and best new artist.
