BET celebrated beautiful, powerful, and talented women during its annual “Black Girls Rock!” special, which aired on Sunday night. Hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King, the star-studded evening featured musical tributes from R&B’s leading ladies including Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Hudson, and Janelle Monáe.

Janelle kicked things off with a high-energy performance of “Electric Lady” followed by Jennifer Hudson, who performed her new single “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” for the first time.

Following an introduction from her fellow Destiny’s Child diva Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland teamed up with Eve and Sevyn Streeter for a remix to her Talk a Good Game single “Gone.” She danced her way into the venue as Eve rapped from the balcony and Sevyn dueted with her on the ladies’ anthem.

Mariah Carey honored her godmother Patti LaBelle with the Living Legend Award, while Jennifer Hudson bestowed praise on Queen Latifah while presenting her with the Rock Star Award.
