Six awards were given out on Sunday night’s (June 25) telecast, with Latto accepting best female hip-hop artist and Coco Jones accepting best new artist in person. Teyana Taylor‘s mother, Nikki, accepted her daughter’s award and even called her up via FaceTime during the broadcast to let her know she won video director of the year.

In the 15 non-televised awards, there were two high-profile ties: Beyoncé’s Renaissance and SZA’s SOS tied for album of the year, while Chris Brown and Usher tied for best male R&B/pop artist.
