Did you watch the BET Awards show last night? If so, you know there were a lot of memorable moments at the Staples Center in Los Angeles that are worth chatting about. The Associated Press lists five, including Charlie Wilson's red coat. Kendrick Lamar and Miguel. Nicki Minaj's chair. And where was Chris Tucker?

CHARLIE WILSON: The Gap Band singer and hip-hop producer's best friend, dubbed "Uncle Charlie" years ago by Snoop Dogg, wasn't content to just accept his lifetime achievement award. After dancing through a tribute from Stevie Wonder, Indie.Arie and Jamie Foxx and giving a long, inspiring speech, Timberlake persuaded Wilson to grab a mic. Wearing a fantastically bold red jacket and white pants, the 60-year-old took command of the show, performing a number of hits with assistance from Timberlake, Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams, including "You Dropped a Bomb on Me." We're not going to say Uncle Charlie showed up that group of modern-day superstars ...

THE FUTURE: Aside from Wilson, the night's most memorable stars were Los Angeles rapper Kendrick Lamar and R&B singer Miguel, who both took victory laps after breakout years. Miguel won the night's first award, best male R&B/pop star over Chris Brown, and performed three times — including once with Lamar on "How Many Drinks." And Lamar was the night's top winner tied with Drake with three awards, including best male hip-hop artist and best new artist.
