The BET Awards ended up being a big night for Beyoncé and her family, with the singer taking home one prize from five nominations.

The 42-year-old musician won the Viewer's Choice Award for her number one country song "Texas Hold 'Em," also garnering nods for Best Collaboration, Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, and BET Her Award.

However, another member of the Carter family also took home a prize the night of June 30, that being 12-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, who has emerged as a star performer in her own right over the past couple years.

The preteen took home the YoungStars Award, beating out the likes of Demi Singleton, Jalyn Hall, Leah Jeffries, and more, thanks to her stellar turn as one of her mom's dancers on the Renaissance World Tour, plus her upcoming turn in Mufasa: The Lion King.

Beyoncé took to her Instagram Stories to share a post announcing the win made by her entertainment company Parkwood Entertainment.

Grandma Tina Knowles also added a comment to the post, praising her granddaughter by writing: "Congratulations to Blue Blue our little superstar in the making."

Blue Ivy is making her film debut in the upcoming prequel to the 2019 live action version of Lion King, playing Kiara alongside her mom, who plays her onscreen mother Nala.

The film is helmed by Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, who told People that watching the "Break My Soul" singer "both on the screen and behind the screen, get to be a mother — and how that affected and impacted for the better the work that we were all doing — was just really awesome."
