Named the recipients of the 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award, iconic R&B group New Edition put on a show-stopping performance at the 2017 BET Awards last night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Being the highlight of the night, the young and adult cast members of 'The New Edition Story' performed alongside the original members performing classic tracks from "Candy Girl," to Johnny Gill's "My, My, My," to Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative."

Luke James really stole the show with his velvety, smooth vocals while singing "My, My, My" and Woody McClain danced his way into the audiences' (including me) hearts when he performed Bobby Brown's unforgettable hits.

The original members also performed a medley of their hits including "Mr. Telephone Man," "If It Isn't Love," and "Can't You Stand the Rain."

SHETHER... Remy Ma won "Best Female Hip-Hop Artist" which broke her "nemesis" Nicki Minaj's 7 year long holding record and of course, Queen Bey (and new mommy to a set of twins) took home an award in every category she was nominated in for songs/works featured on her colossal hit album, "Lemonade."

Solange took home the "Centric Award" for culture classic album, "A Sit At The Table" while rapper Chance the Rapper won awards in the categories for "Best New Artist," "Best Collaboration," and "Humanitarian Award."

The 2017 BET Awards will re-air tomorrow on June 27th at 4pm ET/3pm CT.  View the Winner's List below!
