I was truly surprised last night by the 2010 BET Awards. It was actually really good. I loved Nia Long and Lorenz Tate resiting Love Jones (one of my absolute favs!!) I can’t say there were any performances that sucked, just some that I liked more than others. What I realized at the end, there were actually more performances than awards given. This may have sucked for the artists, but I think I like it better that way!
I would love to tell you about it in great detail, but then the post would be super long. So I’ll just give a brief rundown of my favorites from last night. Alicia Keys did great as usual and pregnancy really enhanced her beauty. Monica wore a rather strange ensemble, but sounded amazing as usual (that note she held for hours was just beautiful). El Debarge had me reminiscing (made me feel a little old that I knew all of the songs he performed). But my top two performances, I had to share with you! Check them out below. What were your favorite moments of the 2010 BET Awards?
I loved Prince growing up! No, not liked, but loved!!! The Dangerously Beautiful women did an awesome job! From Alicia getting on top of the piano (prince’s face was priceless), to Patti kicking off her shoes, the tribute was one of the best I have ever seen. I’m glad Prince approved!
I know Chris Brown wasn’t able to perform last year, but this was the best Michael Jackson tribute I’ve seen. You can tell that CB used to watch MJ as a kid and imitated him in the mirror (didn’t we all). But when he performed, he didn’t just do the steps, you could see that he was dancing from the heart. He really did MJ justice. I must say that I believe his tears were real and heartfelt. The mix of dancing his ass off, being Michael for the moment, infused with the super emotional song Man In The Mirror, made me a bit teary eyed before he started crying, so I could only imagine what he was feeling. Excellent execution.by Latrice
