Jill Scott‘s engagement ring was just one on the observations at last night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles. Her drummer, Lil John Roberts is reportedly the lucky man.

Kanye West and UGK lead the winners for the night with two awards each.

Barack Obama buzz swept through the BET Awards.

Reverend Al Green gave a ridiculous performance of his classics “Let’s Stay Together” and “Love and Happiness” and was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Don’t forget to check out his new album.
