Los Angeles is already hot, but Maxwell somehow turned the heat up even more when he took to the stage Sunday night (Jun. 25) at the 2017 BET Awards.

The legendary R&B/neo-soul singer got the crowd all hot and bothered with a silky smooth performance of “Gods” from his 2016 album blackSUMMERS’night.

Maxwell was so into his performance that he dropped down to his knees near the end as he belted out the lyrics to the soulful track.
