Did you catch all these "Lemonade" cameos?

Quvenzhané Wallis is growing up right in front of our eyes!

The actress, who we first met when she was nominated for an Oscar at the young age of 9 for her role in "Beasts of the Southern Wild," looked like a growing teenager on Sunday night at the 2016 BET Awards.

We almost didn't recognize the adorable actress, who went from cute kiddo to pretty young adult in what seems like a matter of minutes. Wallis, now 12, looked lovely at the award show in a teal shift dress and a pair of white flats. She finished off her red carpet-ready look with a white purse, a cute watch and a set of pearls. She wore her hair down in chin-length curls.

It's hard to believe how fast Wallis is growing up. Just two years ago she was starring as the young orphan Annie in the re-make of the musical movie, "Annie," and now it looks like she'll need more roles fit for a teenager. Wallis most recently starred in Beyonce's "Lemonade."
