Superstars such as Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke and Ciara took the stage at Sunday's 2013 BET Awards at Nokia Theater L.A. Live in Los Angeles, which included a smattering of electric performances, and a tribute to the great Charlie Wilson, who took home the lifetime achievement award.

"Charlie Wilson is soul music," Timberlake said as he presented the 60-year-old music vet with the honors. "His impact colors the work of many artists, which is basically my nice way of saying I and a lot of other artists have stolen from him."
