Jennifer Hudson Takes Home BET Awards

by at . Comments

Dreamgirls stars Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson led the way at Tuesday's Black Entertainment Television Awards in Los Angeles.

People magazine reported that Hudson kicked off the three-hour ceremony with a duet of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" with Jennifer Holliday, who made the song famous on Broadway almost three decades ago.

Another Award for Hudson

The Oscar winner snagged the best actress trophy ("I can't believe I'm still winning awards!" she said) and best new artist award.

Knowles, who led the nominees with six nods, picked up awards for best female R&B artist and video of the year for "Irreplaceable."

She also performed a show-stopping rendition of her dance anthem "Get Me Bodied" – followed by her Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland singing "Like This" with cameos from Eve, Michelle Williams and Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles.

Later in the evening Diana Ross was given the lifetime achievement award, and urged younger performers to "keep it classy." Introduced by Alicia Keys and Ross's five children, the former Supreme was feted with a multi-song tribute that kicked off with Erykah Badu's cover of "Love Hangover."

my prayers are with you. Hold on to your faith. You, Julian and Julia are in God's hands. Your beautiful mom and brother are with Jesus today and you will see them again in Heaven. I can't imagine the force of your grief, please take comfort that the Lord weeps with you, as do i. You seem to be such a joyful person, please don't let this tragedy change that. I hope that you will take this tragedy and makes something positive from it such as focusing on kids and gangs with guns and that gun violence is not the answer. I'm sure that the prayers and thoughts from many people around the world are with you. I'm sure that most of us are looking forward to seeing you in the future as your career blossoms.
