Brown Sistas At The 2008 BET Awards


As I type this the 2008 BET Awards are in full effect and so is the Black female star power. As expected all of Black Hollywood is in the house tonight and that includes singers Keyshia Cole and Rihanna, who are both due to perform, as well Beyonce’s lil sis Solange, who celebrated her 22nd birthday last night.

Other brown sistas in the house include Lil Mama, Niecy Nash and Kerri Hilson.

Rapper Lil Kim, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson were also spotted walking the red carpet.

Toccara, Gabrielle Union and Lauren London were also in attendance.

  1. I just seen keyshia cole hit the stage. And let’s just say it’s was alright

  2. It was the most interesting moment so far to me. She had the most energy even though her performance was not perfect. She did look hot in her white shorts and thigh high boots.

  3. I like A.keys performance.

    I just keep coming back on here again and again…lol i really love this site

  4. Solange is a joke with the clothes she wears. No budget for her to wear better dresses, Beyonce spent it all

    Niecy Nash looks gggrrrrEAT!!!

    I don’t understand lil mama outfits.

    Allica Keys, no likey.

    Toccara looks class chic. loves it!

    Rhinaa nice summery dress but don’t like layers so much.

  5. ^^Wasn’t A.Keys the bomb! She had TLC, En Vogue AND SWV!! I loved Keyshia’s boots.

  6. Did anyone see J.Hud and Terrence Howard’s presentation? My tv screen fogged up 😆

  7. I stopped watching BET in 2000 and I don’t even get it anymore so I must live vicariously thru u guys. Got to say Tocarra looks fabulous. Keyshia Coles’ look hair and all is a breathe of fresh air. The shoe game seem to be the star of this red carpet post. Lil Kim looks like an old white woman.

  8. All these ladies look great. I esp. love Solange’s shoes-CUTE! Didn’t catch Keyshia’s performance but I loved Alicia Keys going old school on us. I also liked Chris Brown&Ciara’s performance.

  9. Man, I got bored and turned to HGTV, then when I turned back I saw En Vogue leaving the stage. I was so mad at myself for missing that 🙁

  10. Did anyone see Ciara and Chris Brown, now that’s was mad tight

    and t-pain just now that’s was mad funny

  11. Yeah Ciara and Chris were hot. It ended on a down note though. They should have closed it out better than that.

  12. algreen had every one up danceing even me and my mama

  13. Ciara is basically a stick. I can understand being fit but she is slowly wasting away and losing the womanly curves she used to have.

  14. Alicia is becoming very militant- I sense it. She told the truth when she said everybody wants to be like us and she called got God ‘The Most High”. Black Isrealites use that term as do Blacks who have embraced a Black God.

  15. Yes I dew luv me some A. Keys. I think it`s good Alicia is becoming militant for soon we will all be at the crossroads and be faced with a decision. Leisure time is about over and revolution is right around the corner. Either we, as a people, are going to stand up like the people of “The Most High” or we`re going to die as cowards. The Black Messiah Jesus is our example as he was a true revolutionary… America is the most WICKED nation in all of history and soon God will destroy her as John, The Revelator, envisioned.

    America is the synagogue of Satan and pretty soon, sooner than we realize, she` going to get what`s comong to her.. I only know one man today who teaches the true meaning of scripture with such LUCID reality; and that man is Minister Farrakhan. Say what you will, but you can`t deny that he`s well versed in the scriptures and has the COURAGE to speak the unadulturated truth. This is how The Black Messiah Jesus was but these give us a PUNK and PASSIVE view of him instead of the true view..

    All the Prophets, from Prophet Muhammad to Jesus, came for our benefit as a people.. This is truth and soon it will all be fulfilled.

    Sorry if I sounded like I was preaching but I guess Stephanie got the ball running. (LOL)

    “The Way You Love Me” by MJ-This, imo, is one of Michael`s best songs. It has such a BEAUTIFUL melody as it`s one of my favs. Definitely in my top 3 of his.

    I was alone in the dark when I met ya
    Uuuuuuuuuuh uuuuuuuuh
    You took my hand and you told me you loved me
    Uuuuuuuuuuh uuuuuuuuh

    I was alone, there was no love in my life
    I was afraid of life and you came in time
    You took my hand and we kissed in the moonlight
    Uuuuuuuuh uuuuuuh

    Chorus:

    I like the way how you`re holdin` me
    (It doesn`t matter how you are holdin` me)
    I like the way how you`re lovin` me
    (It doesn`t matter how you are lovin` me)
    I like the way how you`re touchin` me
    (It doesn`t matter how you are touchin` me)
    I like the way how you`re kissin` me
    (It doesn`t matter how you are kissin` me)
    You`ll see

    Verse 2:

    It won`t be long `til we make vows, I bet ya
    Uuuuuuuuuuh uuuuuuuuh
    I thank the Heavens above that I met ya
    Uuuuuuuuuuh uuuuuuuuh

    Chorus again-I absolutely LUV this song; it`s so ANGELIC…..

  16. In reference to the above outfits: bless their hearts.

  17. OMG THE BET AWARDS WAS SICK. I WAS SO SICK DAT I THREW UP. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE
    KEYSHIA COLE WAS BAD, USHER LIP SYNCHER, OH AND RIHANNA WAS SO BORING AND THE WORST WAS YOUNG JEZZY MAN I WAS UPSET
    ISNT IT STRANGE, WHEN BEYONCE PERFORMS ITS DA BEST
    2003
    2005
    2006
    2008

  18. I AGREE WITH YOU HOLLYWOOD BLONDE, WHEN BEY PERFORMS, THE WHOLE SHOW IS USUALLY THE SH!T! STRANGE, BUT TRUE. AS FOR THE FASHIONS CHOICES, EVERYBODY WAS REALLY LAZY THIS YEAR. IT DIDN’T LOOK LIKE THESE PEOPLE WERE GOING TO A RED CARPET EVEN AT ALL. I’M NOT EVEN AN ASHANTI FAN, BUT I WILL GIVE EITHER HER, OR A. KEYS MY BEST DRESSED VOTE. EVERYBODY ELSE LOOKED LIKE WTF?

  19. Beyonce does not make or break an award show. The show is terrible because the talent that they promote is getting worst and worst. How could Ledisi and Chrisette Michelle sit in the audience and not be up there performing on that stage. Eric Benet has a great cd out right now, but, do you think BET play it. BET was created because there were so many talented artisist that were not getting their just do. And, also, MTV and VH1 wouldn’t play but a handful of black people on their stations. But now BET is just MTV. They play the exact same people over and over. Don’t be fooled to think that a show can’t be good without Beyonce. She is a good performer I won’t take that away but she can be a bit boring herself after awhile. They all have the exact same act that’s the problem. That’s what happens when you take diversity out of the music.

  20. MAD!

    EnVogue should STILL be going strong, ya’ll! 😆 Those were my girls!!!

    But the whole girl-group montage seemed rushed. Why not dedicate a documentary, mini-series to girl groups of the 90s, BET? Why not do that?

    Maxwell, oh baby. BABY! We got you back, only doing a tribute. BET should dedicate a show to Maxwell. 😆 Yes, I’m a rabid stan. I’d rather see him singing HIS music. Love him!

    They all have the exact same act that’s the problem. That’s what happens when you take diversity out of the music.

    I agree.

  21. I feel a level of wrongness when I watch Chris Brown do those things with his hips. *cough* That young man…SMH *fans self* LOL

    Ciara’s long legs (and those boots)…just SICK. LOL

  22. Ciara look nasty sick. WTF! She’s from ATL don’t she know those brotha’s like’em thick!

    I know that I jsut came back from there on Monday and they loved my thick butt!! What is she doing?

  23. all u so called “militant” people are so dumb, it aches my heart….u’re inability to be wise and tactful will be ur downfall….get a brain, folks

  24. EnVogue should STILL be going strong, ya’ll! Those were my girls!!!

    Maxwell, oh baby. BABY! We got you back, only doing a tribute. BET should dedicate a show to Maxwell. Yes, I’m a rabid stan. I’d rather see him singing HIS music. Love him!

    The only thing I can say to those comments are kudos. I love EnVogue and they still look good and those voices will never leave.

    Maxwell girl you are going to have to get in line. I remeber I saw him in concert around 1997 when he first came out and still think about that evening. He was just awesome. He was with Zhane remember them they were great too. I miss the music from the 80’s & 90’s, because they had somethig for everyone. Now they just have this hip-hop and it showed last nite they make extremely boring performers.

  25. i don’t have BET channel so didnt get to watch the show over here but from the pictures above, i will say that i understand why Rhianna is in showbiz! She looks fantastic in that yellow dress and stands out more than the others.

    I saw pictures of what Ashanti wore on another site and she looked great!

    En Vogue was there?? are they back together?? i miss music of the 90’s! wow the industry has changed soo much!

  26. This is the first time ever that i think Gabrielle Union doesn’t look her best. Hell, i didn’t even notice her! She doesn’t look outstanding as usual. Just plain and missable in the crowd!

  27. Beyonce does not make or break an award show. The show is terrible because the talent that they promote is getting worst and worst. How could Ledisi and Chrisette Michelle sit in the audience and not be up there performing on that stage. Eric Benet has a great cd out right now, but, do you think BET play it.

    AGREEE

  28. Usher killed his performance! It was the best show of the night. Keyshia Cole was just o.k, Rihanna rocked, Chris Brown was 2sexy…it was great to see all of our r&b divas reunite momentarily. I cried when I saw SWV 🙂 T-Boz sounded awful..they shouldn’t have made her sing, she wasn’t ready. Jill Scott looked great. Al Green was a little strange as was T-Pain. Lil’ Wayne–eh. Neicy Nash was hilarious…ok, did I miss anybody?

  29. Great show
    Great performers
    Congratulations to the winners

  30. Kanyade wen r u gonna change that pic of kelly on profile, u know it really gives u som kind of a character if u know wat i means and it’s really annoyin’ the fuck outter me

  31. I disagree with all that thought the BET Awards were good.

    Uhhh, no, they weren’t! There were only 3 good ones, Alicia’s, Usher’s, and Chris & Ciara. No one came with their “A” game.

    It’s funny because everyone seems like they had so much energy, yet lacked in the voice department, because Keyshia was shakey, Usher lip-synched, who knows what T-Pain does, and I could hardly here Ciara when she performed with Nelly.

  32. Rihanna is on another level.She will no be boxed in to any standard…That is what’s hot. Keyshia could have performed better but she was nervous.Lil weezy was great but he should have had more time…may be 5-7 min. T-pain was hyped his outfit was funny. The overall audiance was to underdressed they need to step it up…really.Puffy,neo,and some other looked how they are supposed to. You will never catch puff in anything less. Cassy..is she ill and she looked out of place.Puff had to bring his chic…Chris brezzy….whoa….no words Rihanna is getting killed in the bedroom….lol.Ciara…girl your momma is nervous….they killed it. B and J,Missy,Snoop,Game, Foxy,Eve, they were missing some people.They need to have Dave Chappelle host it or back to Monique…..

  33. Maxwell girl you are going to have to get in line. I remeber I saw him in concert around 1997 when he first came out and still think about that evening. He was just awesome. He was with Zhane remember them they were great too. I miss the music from the 80’s & 90’s, because they had somethig for everyone. Now they just have this hip-hop and it showed last nite they make extremely boring performers.

    I agree. I saw Maxwell in concert around this time, too. I think it was during his Embrya record. It was a small venue and let me tell you, the man is MAGICAL on stage! Awesome, awesome, awesome! So beautiful, so talented. Such a talented writer! His lyrics are like good home cookin’. The man is absolutely beautiful. On his myspace page, he has a song snippet called: “Pretty Wings” and it is beautiful! Can I just say beautiful again? 😆 I LOVE THIS MAN.

    you played me dirty
    your game was so bad
    toyed with my affection
    had to fill outmy prescription for the remedy
    i had to set you free…

    a way for me
    to see clearly
    the way that love can be
    when you are not with me…

    🙂

  34. Alicia looks nice, Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson. Solange looks like she has a poodle on her head.
