The 2017 BET Awards kicked off with a killer Bruno Mars performance, starting this year’s show with a real bang. With Leslie Jones holding it down as host, the BET Awards kept the party going all night.

Although Beyoncé didn’t perform this year (obvs), the show still had plenty of fun moments (like that Leslie Jones flashback short, and Mary J. Blige’s incredible performance). This awards show has more performances than most, and they are always surprising (hello, last year’s Kendrick Lamar and Bey performance). Even Chance The Rapper’s Humanitarian Award acceptance speech was a surprising (and inspiring) moment.

Here is the complete list of winners from the 2017 BET Awards. (We’ll update as more are announced.)
