Mindless Behavior have pretty mindful fans. The pint-sized hip-hoppers took home the coveted Coca-Cola Viewer’s Choice Award at the 2012 BET Awards.

The boys were up against some really fierce competition in the fan-voted category, facing off against Team Breezy posterboy Chris Brown, queen Beyonce, the Throne (Kanye West and Jay-Z), Drake and Wale. The teen sensations were flustered and awestruck at the win, but despite their youth, remained well prepared and consummate professionals.

“I’m sorry, I feel a little exposed — I’m sorry!” Princeton said, making a valiant effort to cover his exposed chest. He continued with more thank yous as well as some advice for the group’s young fanbase: “Be yourself and be proud.” The rest of the group proved how charming, adorable and deserving they are, thanking their parents (aww!), fans and label honchos profusely.

Mindless Behavior are BET favorites, from frequent guest stints on ’106th and Park’ to co-headlining the very first BET Closer to My Dreams tour with Tyga and Diggy Simmons. Their experience and loyalty to the network, in addition to their dedicated and young fanbase, likely came in handy in helping Mindless Behavior defeat their stiff competition. Congrats, kids! You earned it.
