Record wins at the BET Awards.

• With an average 7 million viewers, the BET Awards remain the highest rated awards shows on cable television.

• The most nominated artist at the BET Awards is Beyoncé with 61 nominations (53 solo and 8 with Destiny's Child). She also leads in wins with a total of 24. Chris Brown follows with 37 nominations and 14 wins.

• Hip hop artists OutKast took home the first-ever BET award trophy during the first BET Awards ceremony on June 19, 2001. OutKast also won Video of the Year that night for "Ms Jackson".

• Following the passing of Michael Jackson, the BET Awards scrambled to revamp the ceremony. Within three days of its airing on June 28, 2009 the ceremony became a tribute to the fallen star as guest performers hurriedly changed their routines to include Jackson's greatest hits.

• The only BET Ultimate Icon Award to date was awarded to Janet Jackson in 2015, which recognized her as a game changer in the fields of music, dance and video performances.
