On Sunday Night, the 2016 BET Awards at the Microsoft Center in Los Angeles kicked off with a surprise appearance from Beyoncé, who played "Freedom," from her latest full-length LEMONADE. The performance also included a brief step-dancing interlude, made even more dramatic by the splashing water on stage. Towards the end of the song, Kendrick Lamar joined Beyoncé and her dancers to close the fiery performance. Watch above.
