Foxx riffed for several minutes, making fun of the audience, a few children he brought on stage and one of his recent, un-named movies that he admitted was a stinker.

Among this years BET Awards nominees are DJ Khaled with six nods and Kendrick Lamar with five.

The show will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on June 24.
