Pharrell Williams BET Awards Winner


After sweeping the Grammys with his addictive sing-along tune, “Happy”, Pharrell Williams became the biggest winner of the night as he took home the awards for Best Male R&B/pop Artiste and Best Video for “Happy”.

Previously, we reported that the legendary pop icon Lionel Richie will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award as BET Awards will be paying a tribute to honour him. While the tribute features soulful performances by Pharell Williams, Ledisi and Yolanda Adams, the best part of the tribute was when Lionel Richie performed “All Night Long” and “Easy Like Sunday Night”.
