BET AWARDS '09: The Rest Of The Red Carpet

We've got more pics from the red carpet:

Beyonce hit the carpet in a multi-colored Balmain mini dress and interesting purple shoes.  The dress was hot except for the flinstoneish hem.

The Real Housewives of ATL hit the carpet.  Actually looking better than normal.

Carmelo and LaLa got cutesy on the carpet.  Loving Melo's MJ tee.

Ciara worked it out in this leathery side ruffled Cynthia Steffe dress and Louboutins.  Didn't love the dress but she looked pretty fab in it.

the foolywang that was Tiny and Toya hit the carpet.  Was Tiny serious about going up on stage to get her man T.I.'s award?  I mean...really.  And her voice...I would rather hear nails on a chalkboard.  And I won't even get into the preview of that connery that is their show.  I'm done.

LisaRaye brought her daughter along on the red carpet.  Y'all know I was just twidling my thumbs hoping that they would have LisaRaye go up there and talk to Rocsi during the pre-show.  I woulda given this show the Best Show Ever stamp had that happened.

WTF Melody Thornton?  I mean...really?  It may be an Alexander McQueen dress and all but that's no excuse to wear it. Tons more pics when you read the rest....

Not loving this look for Teairra Marie.  Looks like something from Rainbow.

Oh Cassie.  You try so hard. She rocked this Mark Fast knit dress and the Giuseppe Zanotti fold-over booties. And she just needs more people to pull this "edginess" off.

I actually liked Keri Hilson's dress.  Her ridiculous body and skin made it even better.  She paired her multi-colored fitted dress with black Casadei heels.

Tigger

Day 26 actually looked well put together for them.

Loved Shaun Robinson's flapper look.

Oh ok Tasha Mack. LOL  She just looks like she was snapping all up in people's faces all night. Estelle broke out her white glove as a tribute to Michael Jackson:

She rocked a denim tiered Acne baroque peplum dress. But because I despise denim dresses, I wasn't feeling it too much.  She rocked Jimmy Choo sandals and clutch.

KeKe Palmer  looked cute as usual.

Oh Mario...

Ne-Yo and his girl Tenille...I wanted him to make her go back home and change.  Sorry.

OK Tempest Bledso.  Looking good these days...

He's so cute.

Kim Coles was there in this long zebra print dress.

I liked toccara's jumpsuit.  Just didn't love the fit.

Still undecided about the shoes.  I do love risk takers on the red carpet though.

Joe Jackson hit the red carpet and talked to the celebs.

No Ma'am Lil Mama.

Cute.

Hey Marlon.

Wyclef and Alicia Keys were the recipients of the Humanitarian award.

Can't front...loved Soulja Boy's tee.

I feel like I've seen Monica in this look before.  She's a fab chick nonetheless.

Dammit Jazze Pha!

Paula Patton hit the carpet in a simple animal print dress.

Stephen Hill

Ray-J just left the Deacon Board meeting.

Mary Mary was there looking good.

Try again Neicy Nash.  The gold lame and off the shoulder and tied up rouching...all too much for me.

Rick Ross was there looking marshmellowy.

Adrienne's dress was too short.  It could have been really cute though.

Sherri's diet plan has been working.

John Salley hit the carpet.

So did Sean Kingston and Anthony Anderson.  Hmmm can't tell if that's Anthony's daughter or date.

Jeremih looked nice for his first time at the BET Awards.

Ginuwine and his Easter suit.

Paul Wall's wife...I just want to know where she shopped for this here event. Meagan Good's dress was a bit see-through:

But I doubt she minded.

Debra Lee rocked an interesting dress.

Terry Crews brought his wife and kids.

Lisa Leslie and Chaka Khan made appearances.  You know you are burning up Chaka...

Not loving Elise's dress...but loves those shoes.

Terri Vaughn looked fab.

Arsenio Hall brought along his son.

3 6 mafia and Fuane and Fonzworth hit the carpet.

Cute dress for Alesha Renee. The designer is Manish Arora by the way.

Nice look for MC Lyte.

Cute look for Tamala Jones as well.

The Christies and Mike Epps hit the carpet.

WOW Norwood Young.  It just never stops with this man....

Denyce Lawton looked hot in this gold number.

Joe and Raheem Davaughn hit the carpet.

Try again Naturi.  She had good intentions though.

Still mad at Hurricane Chris' pre-show performance.

RIP MJ/ we love you~'s picture

Nicole: Yeah what was up

Nicole: Yeah what was up with the Young Money performance? How are you going to have your daughter and her friends on the stage while singing about fucking every girl in the world? and BET was irritating me blanking out all of Waynes verse practically because the dumb ass censors don’t know what part he curses on. Don’t artists and the awards shows come to an agreement about stuff like that? What in the hell. Lol..That was hella crazy tho.. I thought I was the only one that noticed.. but what can you say to people about thier kids these days?? Oh wells~

The BET awards was a complete

The BET awards was a complete and utter dissapoint. They lead everyone to believe that this was going to be a Tribue to Michael Jackson. But, they didn't keep there promise. it was the worst BET awards EVER!! Just because they had the first chance to pay there respect and honor to Michael. And they didn't. Being the ONLY African-American awards show and the only award show following his death it should have been spectacular and memorable. This it was NOT. The best thing about the show was the host Jaime Foxx he did what everyone else should've done pay tribute to the GREATEST ENTETAINER there ever was and will be MICHAEL JACKSON. Thank you Jaime Foxx.

leslie arnelle: RED CARPET:

leslie arnelle: RED CARPET: Not impressed by one person. Wait Joe was dapper but that’s it!PRE-SHOW: Cheesy to the extreme!SHOW: Beyonce had the best performance but seemed out of place. Very dissapointed that she didn’t do an upbeat number.K Hilson dressed up like Mike, danced like Elvis and should not ever sing without music.Neyo is the man.Jamie Foxx was HIlarious.Chris Brown was missed.Jay Z gave a hot performance. i would agree with most of this....... Joe was EXTREMELY dapper. I loooooved Elise Neal's entire look. She always looks great. Ciara's outfit was pretty too, the outdoor pics didn't really do it any justice. L. Luckett looked great, shoes included. MJ's unfortunate passing only gave BET a 36 hour period to try and pull something together. kudos to them on that effort. HOWEVER.....there were definitely a few less than happy moments. For instance, Kerri Hilson's entire performance.....i will say it was very artistic, but it was missing something.....her w/out music, please never again. Weezy, WHO I LOVE, should never bring his daughter on stage again for "I Wish I could F*CK every Girl in the world". That was extremely innapproriate, as was the song for that event, actually. Maxwell and Neo were great. I heart Raheem anytime and anywhere and Chris Brown's presence was most definitely missed. I appreciated New Edition coming back together to honor MJ. Alicia Keys is the freaking bomb and I cannot wait for her to come out w/a new album with her great singin and writin humanitarian ass. Beyonce is a great entertainer and a true professional and perfectionist with everything she does. But Ave Maria was somehow out of place at the BET awards honoring MJ. So was her corsett of an outfit. I understand her quest to be iconic, but there's a time and place for everything.....she sounded great, however.

Oh and last night, the best

Oh and last night, the best performance to me was NEyo singing lady of my life, and Johnny Tyrese and Trey Songs tribute to the OJAYs. Everything else was kind of wild and all over the place.
mari's picture

although I like Bey, Somehow

although I like Bey, Somehow last night at the awards show, I got the impression that BET caters heavily towards beyonce, whenever they have an award show and beyonce is in the category, no one else stands a chance. Same over at MTV with them catering to Britney spears.
mari's picture

I would definitely rock

I would definitely rock melody's dress but as a shirt. Also loved LisaRayes look. O hell no at Neyos girl, everything is just fucked up from top to bottom and i mean literally. Lil Mama just makes me laugh with her "tryna be fierce face" Wyclef looks soo much like a stereotypical haitian...lmao On a serious note, I was hoping last night the BET awards would be a night to remember and that us black people will pull it together in honor for Michael, but boy was I wrong. Bafoonery left and right...

Am I the only one who thinks Paul Wall's life look like the Bride of Chucky?? Oh, and the BET awards sucked big time! Some people were good but I don't feel like listing...LOL

FOOLYWANG EVERYWHERE

FOOLYWANG EVERYWHERE GOSH...What is wrong with these folks, cant they just represent us in a good manner, the one award show thats about black entertainment.All i see is ghetto every where. The tribute to MJ was not cool at all, cursing none stop...
chocolatedaizzo's picture

well she is breathtakin.....i

well she is breathtakin.....i luv bey she got the haterz on overtime i thought the awardz were okay, not spectacular nd not badd....sum ppl jus cant b satisfied.....even tho' i LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE ,micheal i think they still did a good job of remembering him, wat more u wanted?????? bey performance was beautiful, if she came out booty shakin, grindin hard ppl would still complain,her voice was perfection and she looked so......so many of yall complain about drake, wayne and so on were the same ones biggin them up....sum black ppl r neva satisfied!!!!! Soul Touch: All the messed up stuff that went all last night, all you can focus on is Beyonce?Really?Oh, and Chris Brown.There was countless abstructions on black justice that night and those people are your focus?Okay, I get Chris Brown (although Jay Z’s involvement is pure speculation and rumors) he can perform.I don’t know…sometimes I believe that even those that don’t like her a still mesmorized by her…cause that’s all they talk about.Lil Wayne was disrespectful and disgusting.

Honesty: Child get for

Honesty: Child get for real!! You sound beyond STUPID!! What had she done for this country? As a matter of fact what has she done for the world?! NOT A DAMN THANG!!! She can’t even touch Alicia Keys!! The only thing Beyonce is about is herself. Putting out these sorry albums every two years and jumping in these redundant films trying to stay relevant!! Don’t ever DISRESPECT Michael Jackson like that. NOBODY has said she is like him but her delusional STANS! I’m a fan of beyonce’s but I do have common sense and can see right through a lot of her gimmicks. So take that BS somewhere else. R.I.P. KING MIKE!!! CO-SIGN ALL THE F*CKING WAY...How dare anybody compare Bey to MJ....there can only be one MJ!!!! When Beyonce takes those lace wigs out her f*ckin head & starts kissing AIDS babies & spending real time with suffering children then maybe you can say she's like MJ!!!! Not doing a 25 second PSA for Hamburger Helper with her music in the background or taking pix at a food drive w/ her Dereon label plastered all over her shirt!!!! GIVE ME A F*CKIN BREAK!!!!
lipstiick's picture

I am the one person that

I am the one person that always gives the benefit of the doubt....I wont say that show was horrible only because the intentions were all good (except for the Carters)...but BET once again proved that when it comes to something ran by black ppl there's always some kind of disorganization...I mean btw Lil Wayne & Drake's performance to Beyonce's IDK WTF that was about to having Don Cornelius' old ass take 30 mintues just to read the teleprompter....it was very tasteless & as I've read before they should've left the show the way it was & did like a 20 minutes tribute to Michael...just like MTV did for Biggie...BET is really supporting the stereo type of black ppl being ghetto with that Tiny & Toya show....they had a good thing with Harlem Heights & even College Hill because these young ppl were actually making moves...but what is Tiny & Toya famous for??? being baby mothers?? what is Tiny doing??? Oh yeah she's opening a salon, how original....okay I regress the show was horrible & like many others if they had let Breezy do his thing it would've probably helped the show...no the let the Carters perform a number from their concerts when it was supposed to be a tribute show....I officially can't stand Beyonce, she has completely changed from when she dropped her first solo album
lipstiick's picture

Another thing I hope the

Another thing I hope the issue of JayZ banning Chris Brown is a lie, an absolute untruth, if it isn't I for one will never be able to respect a man of the game to disrespect someone elses hustle. Especially a hustle that harms no one. I would have loved to see Chris Brown, Chris Tucker and Ciara do those MJ dance moves MAN it is so lovely our talent is fundamental to music artistry!!!!

First off want to say I love

First off want to say I love YBF and I love all of the stars that were in attendance to the show Absolutely love our nationality's culture and history and I felt the Tribute portion of the show was SOO touching!!!! and because of it being last minute Hats off to the talent....But Nobody better say nothing to Tiny and Toya. That Stuff folks talk about Tiny? Well GET a man like TI and hold him down a while is all I can say, and besides with shows like Paris hilton and Nicole making money?? And you don't think I am give those Southern Belles a shot youse crazy. I will watch and be entertained thank you. Disappointed IN Bey tho cause she is crazy sick in the game and I wanted the Fierce and not the absorbed culture money has afforded her. Sometimes keeping it simple is what the crowd wants, but I guess this is why she's the star Always reaching...

I think Jamie did a great job

I think Jamie did a great job as the host. I just got tired of seeing him perform. I really didn't get Beyonce's performance, but I gotta give it up to her because she can definitely sing...and what's with the wedding dress??? I loved the opening performance by NE, but I guess Bobby didn't get the memo that he ain't sexy no more. BBD, Guy, and Keith Sweat's performances were good. Trey Songz, Johnny Gill, and Tyrese tore shit up...and down for that matter...that was my favorite performance of the night. I'm wondering why Kanye didn't perform...I was looking forward to that. Maxwell can sing but his performance was boring. Ciara's performance...NO. I fell asleep during Don's long ass speech...and nodded off a few times during Alicia's power to the people speech. Who the hell did Lil Mama's hair??? Shenaynay??? OMG, try again boo, damn. I wanna smack Norwood with that glove he's wearing. Melody Thornton would've looked really nice if that dress was longer. MC Lyte and Monica look extras on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean. I love Meagan's dress and she's sexy as usual. Jazze Phae really needs gastric bypass, looking like Bluto. That lil boy with the big head is really not cute...but I think he's like 20. I think Tiny looked nice and I was glad she accepted TI's award for him...she definitely holds her man down. Her body is banging after having all those kids. Hated Keri Hilson's dress and her wack ass performance. Assie just looks wrong...from head to toe. I'ma need Ving Rhames to stop smoking that shit. Why oh why was lil Reginae up on stage with her lil daddy lil wayne while he was talking about fucking every girl in the world??? How the hell BET gonna have a tribute show for Michael with no dancing??? Makes no kind of sense.

Please let me know what brand Adrienne Bailon's dress is. I'm just as short as her and dresses like that really accentuate my legs. Please let me know the brand. I really like it.

Was I the only one who kept

Was I the only one who kept thinking about The Hunger Strike episode of The Boondocks while watching this damn show?? I know Aaron McGruder (creator of The Boondocks, who accurately portrayed BET as "the destruction of black people") had to be LHAO at the tomfoolery that was BET Awards. SMH First of all, could BET be any more of a rip off with all their "new" reality shows. That BS about that chef lady being all tough...hello Hell's Kitchen anyone?? Also between Tiny & Toya and Frankie & Neffie when did hot ghetto ass mess become a television category?? Pre-Show overall was dry as hell, though it did have a couple of good moments: Jeremih did his thing (maybe a little bit bias cuz I think he is too fine), LeToya was good, Day 26 was hella random but good nonetheless,and I <3 Kid Cudi. Oh and Terrence J looked very dapper in all his gorgeousness. WTFs: Pleaseure P's dancers, their outfits, and basically his whole performance; Rocsi's hair, Toccara (I swear after Top Model she became one of the most annoying people to be given a mic), Dorrough, and the lack of interesting/relevant interviews broadcasted. The main show started off cool. I think New Edition (sans Bobby Brown) did a good job with the Jackson 5 tribute, they may have been a lil off but they did their best. I think Jamie did a great job hosting though he was a little extra at times (boa constrictor & the unprotected sex comment when introducing Maxwell, really??)Oh & his constant plug of his tour, I think by the 5th time we realized that you will be in Las Vegas July 3rd & 4th Jamie damn. Miss Keri to me did her thing. CiCi, really boo?? Mary Mary was good, but without the "God in me" part I would've sworn it was a club song. Keyshia & Monica sounded great but the staging of their performance was terrible. Half of the time they were singing to the wall on that damn rotating thing. Speaking of bad staging, BET needs to fire their camera people who think its cool to shoot random ass people in the audience instead of the actual performances (don't nobody give a damn about Amber Rose when sexy ass Trey Songz is on stage smdh) I <3 Ne-yo. All of his performances were amazing. My only complaint is that She Got Her Own looked mad random and unrehearsed and plz keep your hat on boo, you know better. Guy, Keith Sweat, and BBD were aiight but kinda irrelevant. Trey Trey, Black Ty & Johnny were AMAZING!!! Don Cornelius....self explanatory. LOL @ Eddie Levert Soulja Boy irrelevant Maxwell was good but them damn feathers and random ass lifeless girls in harnesses in the back were pissing me off Queen Bey, you my girl and all but WTF. She sounded amazing but between the sad ass song and random ass wedding dress thingy, I just couldn't Drake sweetie I <3 you, but you should've known better. Matter of fact BET should've known not to make them perform that damn song if the was basically bleep the whole thing out. Oh & fire BET censors too. Only good moments: OJays tribute (Good God Trey Songz is delicious), Skank Robbers (Forever Sheneneh!!!), DOA video & performance, everything Ne-Yo, Jamie's performance with Travis (although I still dont know why Snoop was on stage) and Baby Boy reenactment (minus drunk random ass Ving Rhames). Overall BET AWARDS = Major FAIL. Oh and the 3 days for preparation excuse is a bunch of crap. I think if the really wanted to do a tribute they should've done it right or not at all. ~I'm Out {still waiting for Chris Brown to show up}

jasmine: for ALL of u who

jasmine: for ALL of u who think that beyonce is not the female micheal jackson, youve lost ur mind. everyone who has any sense has already crowned her that. not non singing janet or ciara or any of those other dance only entertainers. the reason y all of u were “dissappointed” w beyonce performance(even tho it was excellent and shows time after time y nobody can fuck with her) is because you secretly wanted her to do a micheal tribute because U KNOW SHE WAS GONNA TEAR THAT SHIT UP FROM THE FLO UP. for whatever reason u have to not like her. beyonce is the MUTHAFUCKING BEST AT WHAT SHE BEST……..PERIOD OH SHUT UP!!!!! WE ARE JUST TALKING ABOUT HER WACK PERFORMANCE. AND IT WAS WACK LAST NIGHT. GET OVER IT!!!

Amen, you don't slap some eggs and flour and sugar together and call it cake he deserved a better tribute. It seems to me that BET was just hungry to have words from the family that night it sucked

This awards show was a huge

This awards show was a huge disaster. Jaime , I am not even family and I am not ready for MJ jokes yet... you had jokes with his dad inthe audience and his sister in the building? Keri Hilson you are fine and your songs are jams but even the look on Kanyes face showed your performance was a pure disaster. Tyrese... please stop riding the coats of Baby Boy and Vingh Rhames sweet lord comparing Mj and bet awards to guns sit your hot mess down. Maxwell, I love you and what a comeback, tribute to the Ojs awesome but come on Trey songz up there with Johnny & Tyrese yall knew better than that poor Don Cornelius could not even remeber his name. The OJs holla now they took it home even though the network did not catch shit in time form Mr. Levert. Best tribute to Michael was neyo's solo and the performance with him & jaime although I really could have doen without Jaime at that point. Tackiest and scariest moment Drake and Lil Way-Gone performing love every girl and making references to fat asses and the like while adolescents were on stage with them and then of course the Miley Cyrus verse. I am scared for this generation fo sho! Debra of BET I know you must be ashamed I await the formal apology. Oh did I forget Jaime referencing MJ grabs his crotch cux of the tight pants and then goign on to talk about a camel toe and then referencing himself as having a Boa Constrictor. Sweet baby Jesus Jaime stay in Hollywood or on Live comedy shows it really did not have a place last night. MJ rest in peace and my prayers are with your family.

ShoeFanatic: The BET Awards

ShoeFanatic: The BET Awards was a travesty. It was not a representation of what we as black people should be. I cannot believe it took the death of our beloved Michael Jackson for our people to act in such an inappropriate, child-like, unprofessional manner. Except for a few, most of the performers were dead wrong. Ne-yo managed to salvage whatever he could from what could be called a total disaster of a tribute show. I do apprciate Jaime Foxx’s efforts to keep the show moving, although it did seem at times that he was embarrassed himself. I understand what Debra Lee was attempting to do and appreciate it, but I don’t think she believed it would come out like this. Michael Jackson died two days previous to the show. In my opinion, I believe what should have happened was they do a 15-20 tribute within the time frame of the show and then announce that BET would be putting on a separate tribute show in the near future. I think the fans would have appreciated that more than the crap we were subjected to last night. And since when did all the cursing and drunken stupers and bad jokes become part of this show. How ironic that the BET awards were actually getting better throughout the years and for some reason last night, academy award winning and nomination, A-list stars were acting like they were attending the VIBE awards or the SOURCE awards. Taraji P. Henson and Tyrese and Ving Rhames were just painful to watch. I don’t recall her acting this “ghetto” at the Academy Awards this past February. Wow! I really and truly hope that Debra Lee and Stephen Hill can redeem themselves and give Michael Jackson the tribute he so sincerely deserves. I agree with another commentator on this site, when they stated that white folk from other networks are probably laughing and pointing at us right now. And what’s worse is that “they” will probably give him a better tribute than we did. I loved Michael Jackson, he was the greatest humanitarian, he was kind and all he ever wanted was for all people to live and experience the best of life. We should all strive for that. I wish everyone peace and blessings. I agree the show was a little rushed and disorganized. I also agree that black people are to judgmental and critical. This woman with her heart being in the right place turned a show that I'm sure took many months to plan to combine a tribute to a man like many of us respected and loved. Michael Jackson was an artist indeed but he was also just a MAN!

BTW people do some research

BTW people do some research on the Ava Maria song. It's actually a religious song and is slow like that. IDK why she had to be dressed scantily clad as usual while singing it. ( Typical though.....she has to be revealed) I guess she thought it was a tribute to him but it wasn't. It's about the virgin Mary!! She probably didn't care though.

People are angry at Beyonce

People are angry at Beyonce and Jay-z and I have no idea why. BET said people were calling to see what can they do to tribute Michael and BET obviously wanted to keep it BET Award show and specifically not all about Michael so they told them to perform their original songs. YOU SHOULD BE MAD A KEVIN HILL OF BET. He's in charge of the Entertainment P.S Beyonce sang a prayer and called Michael an Angel but you say it's innapropriate????

jasmine: for ALL of u who

jasmine: for ALL of u who think that beyonce is not the female micheal jackson, youve lost ur mind. everyone who has any sense has already crowned her that. not non singing janet or ciara or any of those other dance only entertainers. the reason y all of u were “dissappointed” w beyonce performance(even tho it was excellent and shows time after time y nobody can fuck with her) is because you secretly wanted her to do a micheal tribute because U KNOW SHE WAS GONNA TEAR THAT SHIT UP FROM THE FLO UP. for whatever reason u have to not like her. beyonce is the MUTHAFUCKING BEST AT WHAT SHE BEST……..PERIOD Child get for real!! You sound beyond STUPID!! What had she done for this country? As a matter of fact what has she done for the world?! NOT A DAMN THANG!!! She can't even touch Alicia Keys!! The only thing Beyonce is about is herself. Putting out these sorry albums every two years and jumping in these redundant films trying to stay relevant!! Don't ever DISRESPECT Michael Jackson like that. NOBODY has said she is like him but her delusional STANS! I'm a fan of beyonce's but I do have common sense and can see right through a lot of her gimmicks. So take that BS somewhere else. R.I.P. KING MIKE!!!

FIrst of all "soul touch" if

FIrst of all "soul touch" if you would take the time to read All the blogs comments instead of being lazy and assuming that this is all I commmented on you would sound a wee bit more intellegient. I have made several posts that focused on the entire show as a whole. This was actually one I posted this morning. So before you make an assumption let's check facts hun. Thanks Meek!

I was so embarassed that

I was so embarassed that everytime I flipped the channel to BET, I had to turn it off so I ended up only seeing about 30 minutes of the show. What I do think is that we can't expect a better awards show without having better artists first. They had to pull Tevin out the cuts to pay tribute to the O'Jays!? I love them. I was thinking "where are our strong voices"? Where's Anthony Hamilton and the like? There is not a lot of quality music out and that is the fault of the music industry and their quick buck, find-a-gimmick mentality. The quality music is not recognized, promoted well or played on popular radio so they don't appear here. Overall, they did MJ no justice...but how could they?

I thought show got better

I thought show got better towards the end. They didn't even show the nominees until the end. Keri Hilson dancing made me wanna hurl. Beyonce's big ole wedding dress and spanish song had me thoroughly confused. Missed Toya/Tiny show, but will watch tomorrow.

Forgot one! Terri Vaughn looked nice too.

There needs to be an "A" list

There needs to be an "A" list of singers that will do a tribute to MJ. Neo did a good job on his tribute. The rest of them need to sit down somewhere and try to get there own careers back in order. And her voice…I would rather hear nails on a chalkboard. I agree Natasha I feel the same way about Wacksi's voice.That's why I don't watch 106th and Park.

That show was a hot mess! It

That show was a hot mess! It was NOT for Michael at all. All the cursing and ass shaking...yep that's what Michael would have wanted. They should have just had a SEPARATE show for Michael and maybe they could have gotten it right. They didn't even have Chris Brown and you know he would have tore it down. Imagine seeing Chris&Ciara up there dancing their butts off to "Scream" b/c yall know CiCi wanted to dance not sing.Half these ppl there was only there to promote themselves. BET just annoys me. Instead of rushing they should have put together a separate show for Michael b/c this fuckery of a show was not it. They hyped it up way too much. It was all whack.

I know there are some beyonce

I know there are some beyonce haters and lovers on here butI'ma comment ya'll can take it leave it. Her dress was fab but that wig looks like it was an old one from her Crazy in love days. Don't get me wrong I don't like to do my hair all the time either and will rock a wig every now and then but I know a matted old wig when i see one. And if I can afford $35 wig I know she can. And it is not in this post but one i seen on here earlier today but Taraji looked gorgeous!
