It was a huge night in Washington D.C. Saturday night as celebs made their way to the 2013 BET Honors taping at the Warner Theater. TheYBF.com was on hand for the taping, so we've got a few spoilers on what to expect. Check out the celebs who hit up the Nation's Capitol to honor a few good people for a few good causes...
Yes Halle! Ms Berry took command of last night's red carpet in a fiery look of her own. In a strapless red & black watercolor high slit gown, Halle made her way to the 2013 BET Honors show as she received the Humanitarian Award (from Phylicia Rashad) for her work with the Jenesse Domestic Violence Center.
The 46-year-old pretty much shut it down looking flawless as ever. And she posed it up with Alicia Keys and BET's President Debra Lee.
The gorgeous mom was spotted backstage carrying around her Award. We just want to pause and take her fabulousness all in for a moment....
Speaking of Alicia, she hit the carpet in this sexy black gown. But she took the stage in a red cropped top and matching maxi skirt to perform "Brand New Me" for Ms. Berry. She looked fab.
Host Gabrielle Union was on her sexy tip last night. She looked amazing in an army green long sleeved, bust-cut out curve hugging dress for the carpet.
She kept the laughs going throughout the night with her seemingly dozens of outfit changes. And the fact she told the joke again about Dwyane putting a ring on it, it makes us think homegirl is really pushing for it these days. So much for those "we're not rushing thigns" quotes....
Super hot look for her.
Kelly Rowland was also there bringing the sexy in her black dress with a thigh high slit. She was on hand to present an Award to Chaka Khan.
She posed it up with Luis Carr, EVP of Marketing for the network.
Backstage, Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu had some girl time posing it up for the cameras. Chaka, looking svelte in her bronzed gown, was there to receive a tribute. And it was Ledisi who sang "Everlasting Love" to honor the diva. Wayne Brady also hit the stage to sing Happy Birthday to her.
Erykah Badu was on hand to open the show with "What Cha Gonna Do For Me", another tribute for Chaka.
And out on the carpet, Chaka posed it up with fellow honoree Lisa Leslie. Lisa rocked a gorgeous black Angelo Dean gown while being presented for an award (by Anthony Anderson) for her excellence in athletics. Brandy was also there to perform in her honor.
Beautiful dress for Lisa as she hit the carpet with her hubby!
Hey Laz Alonso. The "Deception" star looked yummy as usual.
Debra Lee hit the carpet, in an age appropriate look finally, with her daughter and Stephen Hill.
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis hit the stage to rock out with two of their hits from the 80's.
Mr. Wayne Brady kept it dapper on the carpet.
Funny guys Cedric The Entertainer (who was there to present to TD Jakes) and Anthony Anderson kicked it backstage.
Singer Luke James hit the carpet before the show.
Celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins showed off her cute figure in her gold Herve Leger dress.
Ledisi looked like she was channeling a mermaid. Hope this look translates properly on TV as she sang the tribute for Chaka Khan.
Mint Condition brought back their cool with a performance of "Breakin' My Heart."
Actress Kat Graham looked great on the carpet.
Bishop TD Jakes, hitting the carpet with his wife, was there to receive the Award for Education.
Beverly Bond made her way to the event of course with Bazaar Royale.
And political correspondent Roland Martin made a statement with this white brocade jacket.
