The 2016 BET Awards just might have been the most epic in the network's history. What other event can boast a surprise appearance from Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar – as the opener! The energy level just skyrocketed from there, with incendiary musical tributes to Prince, Jesse Williams' powerful speech on racial injustice, and hilarious sketches from hosts Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

The actor-activist spoke out about racial issues, social justice and even cultural appropriation in the applaud-inducing speech – the address prompted a Twitter debate and even landed Justin Timberlake in the hot seat after he tweeted about the speech.
"Freedom is somehow always conditional here," he said. " 'You're free,' they keep telling us … freedom is always coming in the hereafter, but, you know what, though? The hereafter is a hustle. We want it now."
Even though he is one of the biggest stars on Grey's Anatomy (he plays Dr. Jackson Avery) Williams tends to stay out of the spotlight and keep his personal life private – except when it comes to social justice.
The moving address was just a small extension of Williams' activism, as he has long been an active member of the Black Lives Matter movement.
