In case you weren’t glued to the TV for the BET Awards like most Black folks were, here’s a quick recap:
The opening from the G.O.O.D music crew with ‘Lamborghini Mercy‘ was the perfect opening and the freestyle from Kanye West was what that was. He wrapped Whitney Houston, Rodney King, Kim K., Wiz Khalifa, Lebron James, The Illuminati and Chicago crime scene into one verse.
Jay- Z made a surprise appearance while Kanye (who was sitting front row with Kim K. btw) was accepting the award for Best Group and Usher performed one of my favorite songs from his new album, Climax.
When I started doing what I wanted to do, that’s when I started to live the life I wanted to live.
The play fight between Jay-Z & Beyonce was cute seeing as how together they had four of the five videos nominated for the Best Video award which he won as well.
SN: I have NEVER seen Brandy move like that. I guess she say she BACK!
Houston’s brother, Gary Houston, performed a very touching song before introducing their mother, Cissy Houston, who sang ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ and brought tears to my eyes and most folks in the audience, including Soulja Boy. Her co-stars from ‘Waiting To Exhale‘ had some beautiful words to say and Chaka Khan came out to ‘I’m Every Woman‘ looking fabulous as ever.
And that was it for me folks! I couldn’t take no more…
But don’t worry, if you missed any parts of the show that I didn’t mention here or just want to see it for yourself rest assured that BET will be replaying the mess out of the show!
