The 2022 BET Awards, which took place Sunday at Los Angeles’s Microsoft Theater, was full of surprises,

from Janelle Monáe’s live, presumably unscripted F-bomb drop to a jarring In Memoriam segment that mentioned the “death” of Roe v. Wade.

It paved the way for some of the UK's biggest names in music including Little Mix, Harry Styles and Alexandra Burke.

But one of the three-hour ceremony’s most unexpected moments, near the end of the evening, was Kanye West’s return to the spotlight.

West has kept a low profile since April. That month, he pulled out of the Coachella festival with no explanation and with less than two weeks’ notice

and he was also reportedly barred from performing at the Grammy Awards due to his disturbing social media attacks on his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend

Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson. But the controversial hip-hop star was apparently still welcome at the BET Awards

where he showed up to pay tribute to his “brother,” Lifetime Achievement honoree Sean “Diddy” Combs.

While West’s entire face was obscured by a black stocking mask, mirrored shades, and a pulled-low baseball cap

there was no mistaking his identity — especially when he delivered one of his typically lengthy, colorful speeches.

In his speech, West explained that he came out of hiding Sunday specifically because he could not pass up the opportunity to honor his longtime friend and role model.
