Some of you came of age in late '90s, early '00s, and if you did, this BET Awards red carpet was for you. Despite some glaring holes, childhood-ish favorites Ashanti, Eve, and Michelle Williams, Destiny's Child OG, were in attendance and both Ciara and Mariah Carey performed. Also, Lil' Mama, who's lipgloss is still poppin' but in a more refined way, was there. Enjoy the gallery above; We'll be listening to "Heartbreaker," "1,2 Step," "Goodies," "Foolish," "Survivor," and "My Lipstick is Poppin'" (always "My Lipstick is Poppin'") on repeat for the rest of the night.
