The kids were alright at the BET Awards on Sunday night, as Willow and Jaden Smith (at left in the photo) shared the YoungStars Award, much to the delight of proud parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

At center in the photo is Diggy Simmons, who was also nominated in the category.

Chris Brown was the night's big winner, earning four awards, including best male R&B artist, while Patti LaBelle received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

"When anyone asks me who I want to be like, I always say Patti LaBelle," Beyoncé told the audience.

Jay-Z and Justin Bieber may seem like an odd couple, but both are in the running for the 10th annual Black Entertainment TV Awards – Jay-Z in five categories, including best male hip-hop artist and video of the year, and the Canadian teen and PEOPLE cover boy as best new artist.

Others with five BET nominations each are Drake and and Nicki Minaj, while Beyoncé, Alicia Keys and Melanie Fiona are all up for four. Rihanna, B.o.B, Young Money and Fabolous received three nods apiece.
