"It is truly, truly a blessing to be here tonight, and I am humbled and in awe of everyone's presence, but mostly my hero right there," Nick said of his wife Carey as he presented her with BET's Entertainer Of The Year award. "What most people don't get the opportunity to experience is the true woman; the virtuous person who is my angel."
Mariah accepted the award and said, "To my incredible husband who [has been] out of the hospital two days -- look at him all strong and healthy and big and too buff for the tux -- it's incredible."
Moroccan's twin, Monroe Cannon, was backstage during the presentation because according to her mom, "We were both sewn into our dresses, so she couldn't make it out."
"She's a diva like her mama," added Nick.
