Mariah Carey Grabs ICON Honor At BMI Awards--Nas, Fantasia & More Perform

Last night in L.A. was a huge night in music for the industry folks.  Check out the YBF celebs who made their way to the BMI Urban Awards at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, and honoree Mariah Carey doing what she does best: Look glam, love on her husband Nick, and accept tons of praises from her celebrity friends.

 

Pics of Nas, Fantasia & more inside...

Look who's officially back to her fabulous self in this sexy black gown and big curls:

Before Mariah accepted her BMI ICON Award, which recognized her prolifically successful and influential songwriting career,  she received a hot tribute from producer Jermaine Dupri, gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard, R&B crooner Joe rocking “We Belong Together,” Eric Benet, who offered “One Sweet Day,” and "American Idol" alum Fantasia belting out “Hero.”

Fanny even took it to the audience to belt it out to the icon.

Honor well deserved.

Sexy Nas opened up the Awards with "Got Yourself A Gun" & "It Aint Hard To Tell":

Yes and Yes.

Debbie Allen and her son Norman hit the carpet.

MiMi's hubby Nick Cannon hit the carpet with former "Idol" judge Randy Jackson, after posing with his wife.

Y'all know Ray-J made his way into that mug.

Stevie J was in the mix of course.

Eric Benet, in plaid pants, and his new wife Manuela hit the carpet.  She looks gorgeous by the way.

Hey Luke James!

And fab chick Marsha Ambrosius kept it chic in this black & white one sleeved dress.  Nice.

Idk who Luke James is. I've

Idk who Luke James is. I've never felt Marsha. Norman, I can't believe how grown and handsome he's become, where has the time gone? Wow. Congrats to Mariah! I've always loved her hair, but why is it that her curls don't always curl all the way, all the way around her whole head? Fantasia, that's my chick, but I'm going to need her to get rid of those extra pounds, the jailhouse tats, the hood hair and just be the fabulous superstar she is...please and thank you. Stevie J...Umph...U

Does FANTASIA have to take

Does FANTASIA have to take her shoes off during EVERY performance?? I wonder if Sleezy J approached Ray-J about directing that SEX GUIDE VIDEO he and José-lynn are PLANNING to make, you see where Ray-J's directing got KIM K. and her ENTIRE family, he deserve a Nobel Prize, his work will FEED generations to come in the Kardashian Klan!!

Not many people realize that

Not many people realize that Mariah has always written her own songs and even done some production. She is definitely talented! I love Mariah, she is my favorite. Congratulations, Mimi, you deserve this honor! Love your curls too!!

Mariah deserves this & she IS

Mariah deserves this & she IS an icon! Mariah looks very good; I LOVE this look on her. The photographer shot the pics of Nas @ the right moment because he does look very sexy in those pics. Debbie Allen son is FINE! Randy Jackson WTF??? LOL @ Godiva-Diva saying Eric Benet looks like a caddy. Who is Luke James? I never heard of him. Marsha looks good.

I don't know about u, but I

I don't know about u, but I think it was about time they dubbed MIMI with this honor. But in case they didn't see it all that while ago, she has been an icon for the last probably 30 years in many people's eyes. She set the tone for many of these heffas running around these days thinking their IT. And call Mariah whatever, but she doesn't claim to be an icon like some people we know...(Who've been in the game for a min)!!

Mariah & Nick look like they

Mariah & Nick look like they are having trouble in paradise. Lenny must have been there. Mariah always acts like she is going to break if she moves wrong. She so stiff.

Why does Fanny constantly

Why does Fanny constantly kick her shoes off--like a minute after she hits the stage? SMH...only Patti gets a pass on that. Mariah looks good when she dresses in simply-chic styles...WTF does Randy Jackson have on--and Stevie J showed up in jeans? Eric Benet looks like a caddy.

Congrats... Mimi!!

Congrats... Mimi!!
