Yvonne Chaka Chaka on Saturday night.

The 2017 BET Awards were held in Los Angeles this weekend and extended across two nights. The International ceremony took place on Saturday (24 June) and the American ceremony followed on Sunday night (25 June).

Unfortunately BET hasn't done a thing to try to ensure that we see the ceremonies on time. Every year it's the same old story - "old" being the perfect word because we're seeing both ceremonies two days late yet AGAIN.

The international ceremony airs in Africa tonight (26 June) at 19h00 and the American ceremony will only air on Tuesday (27 June) at 20h00.

If you don't know want to know who won before watching, then please stop reading now.
