What would an award show be without epic performances. Avery Sunshine and Jazmine Sullivan, gospel powerhouse Le’Andria Johnson and Da Brat hit the stage.

HelloBeautiful.com spoke to Erica ahead of the premiere and got the tea on her red carpet and hosting look.

“I got an original piece from my friend, Al Johnson,” said the gospel powerhouse. “I saw this picture and I sent it to him and he picked the fabric and he made it happen! The outfit looks like a party. I’m super excited about that. And then something nice and sleek.”

Erica wore all Black designers to the show, including a LBD from her friend Keirra Sheard’s collection.

”I love supporting African and African-American designers. Keirra Sheard’s line — Eleven60 — there’s a simple black dress that I was able to wear. I starved myself real good *Laughs* So I look real cute in it. I didn’t want to overdo it cause I wanted it to be more about the show and just really honoring these amazing women.”
