Beyoncé Snatches Five BET Awards While Away On Maternity Leave

Beyonce Wins Five BET Awards While Off On Maternity Leave featureBeyoncé is taking an understandable leave of absence from the spotlight after giving birth to premature twins. While she seemed eager to perform until the last minute while pregnant, she skipped Sunday night’s 2017 BET Awards. It was an eventful evening for her to miss as she racked up five wins at the show.

Beyoncé took home hardware for “Best Female R&B/Pop Artist” and “Album of the Year” for “Lemonade.” The music video for her song “Sorry” earned wins in “Video Director of the Year” and “Viewer’s Choice Video” as well as splitting “Video of the Year” honors with Bruno Mars’ visual for “24K Magic.” Beyonce sent her protege duo Chloe x Halle to accept an award on her behalf.

But one Knowles did get to take the stage as Beyoncé’s sister Solange won at the awards show. She was honored with the “Centric Award” after losing out to her sister in three categories. And she just so happened to forget Bey’s name during her acceptance speech.

Watch Chloe x Halle stick to Beyoncé’s script below.
