The Only 7 BET Awards Moments Anyone Will Be Buzzing About (Video)
BET Awards Red Carpet 2017

Top stars of music, TV, film and sports came together Sunday night to celebrate summer's first official award show: the 2017 BET Awards.

Bruno Mars kicked off the night with a killer performance of "Perm," and host Leslie Jones gave Amber Rose's bush a shout-out. Oh, and Michelle Obama stopped by (kinda).

The evening was lit, to say the least, but it did run a bit long. So if you missed the show, TooFab's got you covered.

Here are the only 7 moments you need to see from the 2017 BET Awards.

New Edition Earns Lifetime Achievement Award

After a few words from each member of New Edition, all six members -- Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins -- took the stage to perform some of their best hits, including "Mr. Telephone Man," "Can You Stand the Rain" and "If it Isn't Love."

Baby Asahd Khaled Wins The Entire Night

DJ Khaled, Chance the Rapper, Quavo and Lil Wayne (unfortunately, no Justin Bieber) hit the stage to perform their chart-topping hit, "I'm the One." But the best part was when Khaled went down to the audience and scooped up baby Asahd Khaled from his wife's arms. The proud pop brought his son on stage with a set of headphones that were far too large for his tiny head. Asahd might just be the cutest executive producer of all time. Oh, and he wore matching Gucci suits with Gucci Mane.

Chance The Rapper Accepts Humanitarian Award

Chance the Rapper accepted the Humanitarian Award and made everyone fall even more in love with him.

"I'm 24. To be receiving something like this at my age... It feels a little bit...early to be getting something like this, but my God doesn’t make mistakes," Chance said during his candid acceptance speech.

He also called upon the legalization of marijuana: "Y'all need to let everybody out of jail for selling weed before y'all start making it legal for people to sell it and make capital off it. I was gonna tell the Chicago Public School system not to take out a loan from Chase bank when they know that our schools are planning on failing in our district. I was gonna tell those judges that we just need a conviction when we know these niggas wrong for doing this."

Michelle Obama Congratulates Chance

Although the former First Lady could not be present, she chimed in via video call to congratulate Chance on his win and commend him for his service to the Black community.

"We are so incredibly proud of you, Chance. We have known Chance and his family since he was a wee little baby rapper, and it has been a thrill watching him come into his own in so many ways," she said. "In addition to making some really amazing music, Chance has been taking that big, bright spotlight that follows him around, and he's shining it on young people of our home town of Chicago."

Remy Ma Wins Best Female Hip-Hop Artist

Remy Ma took home the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, but not without taking a moment to throw shade at longtime rival Nicki Minaj with some lines from her diss track "SHEther." Minaj was not present, but she had already announced via Instagram that the only award show she'd be attending this summer would be the NBA.

Mary J. Blige and A$AP Rocky Give a Stellar Performance

Mary J. Blige completely stole the show.

Future Brings Out Kendrick Lamar

Future surprised the audience and brought out Kendrick Lamar, who also happened to win Best Male Artist.
