#BETAWARDS 2015

So against my better judgement I decided to go ahead and watch the entire BET awards this year. I told ya’ll on The Library I only wanted to see Ciara in the Janet Jackson tribute but I have to say, this show was WAAAYYYY better than last year!!!

The Host were Traci Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson and they did AMAZING!!! I love them two together, their chemistry and the way they interact with each is just natural! I loved them two as host. They opened the show with a parody of the hit song “Conqueror” Β from Empire that was super funny! I lived for them and all the comical puns throughout the show. Now on to the AWARDS!!!bet awards 8

Best Actor and Actress went to Terrance Howard and Taraji P. Hensen (Lucious and COOKIE)! Salute to the Empire for those awards. Terrance beat out his on air son Jussie Smolette, i really would’ve enjoyed if Jussie won because everybody knows that Jamal is America’s Boyfriend!!! Best Female Hip Hop….i don’t even understand why they still have this award! They’re given this award to Nicki Minaj since she’s been on and it’s getting old!!! WHERE IS LIL KIM!!! We’ll talk about her later on. And best male hip hop artist went to Kendrick Lamar.

Now lemme get ready to get some on ya’ll together for this next award! Best New Artist went to SAM SMITH!!! YES I SAID SAM SMITH AND HE DESERVED IT!!! (In my Weeknd voice, who we’ll also talk about later) Twitter was all in a frenzy because Sam won a BET Award and clearly he isn’t black. And to those people I just want to say, WAS THE AWARD FOR THE BEST NEW BLACK ARTIST….NO!!! Sam Smith out sold, sang, and everything else everybody else on that list! Majority of those people I can’t even pronounce but he deserves that award and Anthony Anderson came and accepted it in a tight suit and a wig joking that he didn’t show up because he didn’t think he would win! Moving on…

Smokey Robinson was given the Lifetime Achievement award and this SICKENING LITTLE GIRL NAMED TORI KELLY got on that stage and snatched my wig!!! I don’t know who this girl is but she had a guitar across her and was singing and strumming for the GAWDS!!! She shut it DOWN’T!!! Then Ne-Yo and Robin Thicke sang something but I was too traumatized by home-girl to pay attention.

Chris Brown won the Fandimonium award and best r&b pop artist and he got on the stage and gave a cute little speech about his life changing and his baby….is it me or does Chris Brown dance his way back into our hearts every year at these awards!!! And it works!!! Hopefully he don’t be pulling no stunts by the end of the week and he be back on our list!

The last award of the night was given to Nicki Minaj for the Viewers Choice award, whom of which she acted like she didn’t know what the award was for….I’m quite frankly slowly becoming over Nicki…her speech was awkward and I just felt some kinda way about it. Count it as shade but that’s fine! Now for the good part THE PERFORMANCES!!!!

 

Janelle Monae “Yoga” and Jidenna “Classic Man” – Now this was my first time hearing both of these and my first time being introduced to this Jidenna man and his finger bet awards 5wave but the performance was good. Janelle changed her clothes and her hair and was giving me sexy Janelle and I was her for it all! Then this man in a 7 piece suit comes out and I’m like maybe he’s a back up singer or something! But apparently he has a song called “Classic Man” and his name is Jidenna! I liked the song but I just didn’t know it so my vision was blurred.

Chris Brown, Tyga and Omarion – Chris started this performance with a lady with no bones flipping and twisting all over his head. What song he was performing I couldn’t tell you because I don’t care to know. However when that boy Tyga came out they did their song “AYO” which to me is nothing more than a remix to “Loyal”! Notice how the crowd bet awards 2hype went down when Tyga got on stage….I wonder was Kylie there?! Any who them Omarion came out and they did the “Booty like groceries” song. I was just waiting on Chris and Omarion to have a dance off on the stage!

Weeknd and Alicia Keys – YAAAAASSS MY JAM!!! Well not that first song he did cause I don’t know it lol but I wanted him to do his name some for Top 40 radio, something about “I can’t feel my face”!!! However he finished the song I don’t know and then Ms.Keys was sitting on her stool playing “Earned it” on the piano and got to singing it bet awards 3giving me EVERYTHING!!! You know I don’t necessarily like Alicia but she know she can play that damn piano and sing me a song any day she wants and her vocals with the Weeknd were EVERYTHING!!!

{Insert Church segment with Donnie McKlurken …. Yolanda Adams was busy}

BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT: BAD BOY TRIBUTE – MY EDGES STILL NEED GLUE AFTER THIS!!! Now i can’t stand Diddy and it’s no secret. I still got beef from when he cuss out LaurieAnn Gibson on Making the Band back in the day but I will not neglect the fact…DIDDY GOT THEM HITS!!! And he performed most of them on stage. He went down to the gutter to find 112, Mase, French Montana, and then he went over to Brooklyn to find LIL KIM AND EVEN FOUND FAITH EVANS!!! This Tribute was better than the Janet Tribute!!! They gave us “Peaches and Cream”, “Bad Bad Bad Bad Boy”, “Never Knew A Love Like This”, “You wanna rumble with the bee huh BZZZZZZ” and some other song with Pharrell. I got all the life!!! SHOUT OUT TO PAPA DIDDY POP!!!

The Empire Family FINALLY gave us a full performance of DRIP DROP!!! (I TWERKED) And they even found Teyana to come and perform! Then Jussie came out to do “Your So Beautiful” with a cute little message about the Supreme Court ruling and go up down up down up down!!! I was here for it!!!

{Insert Big Sean Performance which i skipped cause I don’t care}

JANET TRIBUTE: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OK maybe not a whole row of O’s but the tribute was definitely slighted if you ask me. Tinashe did “Pleasure Principle” it was cute, Jason Derulo did “All for You” and I was like OK…AND THEN AS I PREDICTED CIARA CAME OUT AND GOT ME ALL THE WAY TOGETHER WITH “IF”!!!! I was screaming at the screen like YAAAAASSSSS CIARA YAAAAAASSSSSSS!!!! And then they all came together to do Rhythm Nation and Tinashe forgot to tuck her pony tail cause he hat fell off! Now here was my problem, 30 years of music and you give me 4 songs BET!!! So i guess my problem isn’t with the performance but with the production! I should’ve been a lot longer. Then Janet came out whispering to accept her award for Legendary Icon or something or another.Β bet awards 7

K.Michelle, Tamar Braxton and Patti Labelle – Yes it actually happened! And I was gladΒ to see it. When I heard they were perfoming together I was like LIES!!!! But it actually happened. K.Michelle began with a song about Trench coats and fish net stocking. Then exited stage left, enter Tamar stage right to sing “If I Don’t Have You” and then fairy god mother Patti Labelle joined the two to mend all the broken wounds with “If Only You Knew”! It was cute but Tamar eye lashes were on SUPER FLEEK!!

Rihanna was tying people up all damn night looking for her money all to release a one minute trailer for her new video for #BBHMM which will be released on Thursday. It was cute. Then Fetty Wapp did a performance but by that time I was sleep and over it!

The show was definitely better than last year! I give it an 8 out of 10 just for the huge upgrade from last years mess!!! We’ll be discussing more tomorrow on The Library at 7:00 PM EST!!! I love you for reading and listening!
