Beyonce At The 2012 BET Awards: Star Shines In Lovely Yellow Gown (PHOTOS)

We love when rumors come true--at least in this case.

There was plenty of buzz that Beyonce and Jay-Z might be making an appearance at the 2012 BET awards--but between Jay's world touring, Bey just finishing up her Atlantic City performances and baby Blue Ivy to consider, we didn't think the power couple would show up.

But they did! Yipee!

And we weren't the only ones that were surprised. Although Jay and Bey were no-shows on the red carpet or for the start of the show, Jay ran out on stage while Kanye West was accepting their award for Best Group. Awwww!

But where's Beyonce? Jay's stunning wife slipped into the venue shortly after wearing a shiny chartreuse one-sleeve gown. The satin Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 couture design boasts a super high, super on-trend slit and is cinched at the waist with a huge silver statement belt. A major look for a major star--obvi.

The couple joined Bey's sister Solange Knowles along with Kayne and his new main squeeze Kim Kardashian on the front row.

Bey even got kissy-kissy with Kim, who was dressed head-to-toe in white just like her beau Ye. The ladies definitely look like they are getting close. Watch out Gwyneth!
