Kendrick Lamar was the night's big winner at the 2013 BET Awards on Sunday, June 30, but plenty of other stars -- including Justin Timberlake, Drake, Miguel, Charlie Wilson, Nicki Minaj, and Mariah Carey -- got time in the spotlight, too. Lamar, 26, capped off his breakout year with three awards, including Best New Artist and Best Male Hip Hop Artist. He also did double-duty as a performer, taking the stage with Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae for "Q.U.E.E.N." and with 2 Chainz and A$AP Rocky for "F--kin' Problems."

"To my little homeboys and my homegirls back in the city, you looking at me on TV right now, I came up in that same county building, food stamps, welfare section eight," the Compton-raised rapper said while accepting one of his three trophies. "This is living proof that you can do anything you put your mind to."

Other big winners included Drake, who led with 12 nominations and won the Viewer's Choice Award, Video of the Year, and Best Collaboration (which he shared with Lamar, 2 Chainz, and A$AP Rocky); Rihanna, who beat out Beyonce and Alicia Keys for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist; Miguel, who won best Male R&B/Pop Artist; and R&B legend Charlie Wilson, who took home the Lifetime Achievement Award and performed a medley of his hits alongside Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, Jamie Foxx, Snoop Dogg, and India.Arie.

"Charlie Wilson is soul music. His impact colors the work of many artists, which is basically my nice way of saying that I and a lot of other artists have stolen from him," Timberlake joked when presenting the award to Wilson.
