Live BET Awards Chat Fest

Ok, somebody obviously done told us wrong because Beyonce and Jay Z did not open the BET Awards as previously thought. Instead BET gave Jennifer Holiday the gift of a lifetime by allowing her to duet with J. Hudson on the Dreamgirls anthem, And I’m Telling You. I must say it was a big surprise to see Jennifer Holiday take the stage but it was a pleasant surprise nonetheless. I think both Jennifer’s did an excellent job, if not a bit much at the end. Sill, this year’s show is an upgrade from last year’s and keep getting better.

So what do you guys think so far… ?

8:27 pm T.I takes to the stage performing his hit single Big Things Poppin’. BET must have put some sort of one rapper on the stage at a time rule in effect cause T.I took the stage all alone- a very un-rapper like thing to do- lol.

8:36 pm Ne-Yo takes to the stage and performs Becaue Of You. At 8:42 Ne-Yo is joined by Fabolous to perform their hit, Make Me Better. I love this song and think they tore it up.

8:53 pm Diddy and Keyshia Cole perform Last Night, later to be joined by Lil Kim.

9:03 pm Beyonce takes to the BET stage in a futuristic gold outfit and performs a laid back version of Get Me Bodied. Bey is later joined by Monique who basically just poses. Up next Bey introduces Kelly Rowland who perform Bump Like This with Eve. Later Michelle, who backed up Beyonce, joined Bey, Kelly and Solange on stage to do absolutely nothing. I saw Beyonce’s hips swaying but that was about it. They didn’t perform a song and Solange taking the stage was weird. Still, I love the way one performance leads into another.

9:21 pm Affirmative Action was in full effect as I can see no other reason to have Robin Thicke on the show. His performance of Lost Without You annoyed me. His time slot should have been given to Lyfe Jennings.

9:37 pm Eddie Levert pays tribute to his son Gerald, singing Wind Beneath My Wings. He is joined by Yolanda Adams, Patti Labelle and Galdys Knight.

9:48 pm 50 Cent takes to the stage and totally ruins his career. As if things for him weren’t bad enough he takes his time getting into his song and his back up man curses several times, totally ruining the classy vibe BET obviously went out of their way to create. 50 is obviously feeling the heat and choked tonight.

10:04 pm Eykah Badu, Chaka Khan and Stevie Wonder pay tribute to the great Diana Ross. Her children, all 100 of them (lol), then took to the stage and presented their mom with the 2007 BET Lifetime Achievement Award. Diana accepted her award graciously and really made me proud. Diana is why so many Black singers try to be actresses. She’s a true trailblazer.

10:44 pm Ciara performed Like A Boy and the first half of her performance was straight Janet Jackson- ya’ll know it was. The second half saw her strip down and take her show into crowd finishing things off with her signature booty pop.

11:00 pm The last performance of the night was another tribute, this time to James Brown. Rev Al brought out Public Enemy who did a medley of their and James Brown’s hits.

  1. Thank you for the back up D. πŸ™‚

    I cannot stomach three hours of this show but I did tune in to see Monique and Beyonce. I was nice to see them give the opening honor to Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Holiday. I gues Miss Holiday can stop complaing about not getting her due credit now πŸ˜†

    Monique’s Beyonce dance wasn’t as good as it was a few years ago but she didn’t flop like Damon Wayans so that is good. And yeah BET stage is awesome and theu are definitely upgrading every years.

  2. I hate to see singers try to outsing each other rather than sing along with each other. Jennifer and Jennifer did well until the end when they both flopped trying to outsing the other.

  3. Is that MC Lyte doing the announcing?

    My baby T.I. was fine and conducted himself well. The South shall rise again thanks to him. πŸ˜†

  4. I don’t care what nobody say, Keyshia Cole is so pretty and her singing was great. Diddy also tried to put together a great little dance routine for them and it was cute. Tech problems with Lil Kim’s mic flattened some of the performance though.

    Jennifer Hudson needs a girdle. Love her but a girdle would help her greatly.

  5. Does TPain really talk like that or was he just being crazy? And why did they only let him perform half his song? I love that song and an glad he had the #1 album. He was the underdog and desrved it. His song rules the airwaves in NY

  6. I didn’t see most of what you guys have talked about so far. I got home and saw part of the Gerald Lavert tribute. I didn’t watch 50 cause he just annoys me. I caught Toccara doing her bimbo act. Big girls need to have their clothes fitted on them. Her clothese practically fell off of her.

    Well you definitely didn’t miss anything with 50. Debra I agree that 50 is feeling insecure because both his sings didn’t catch on at radio. There is talk of him being a flop and he just caved in tonight. Everybody is going to be talking him tomorrow. He’s gonna have to do a whole bunch of promotion to offset his flop tonight.

  8. I have to Give it to Diana Ross to still be holding it down at 63 years old….. She looks great especially with 6 kids.

  9. I know this is suppose to be a good vibrations thing but I’m going to hate. I am so happy to see Fiddy flop. He helped turn back the hands of time and bring back that killa gangsta rap. He was so cocky a few years ago taking credit for ruining careers including Ja Rule’s. Now the tables have turned and it is 50 who in less than ten years in the music biz is seeing his time expire. So hahahahaha. I am so happy to see him choking live on television. His ego can’t take not being number one and that is why he is falling apart and talking about retiring. Only rappers retire after 3 or 4 albums and that is because they can’t take not being the ish and don’t know how to overcome like singers do. 😑

  10. I agree Robinne. While watching him I knew he was experiencing a total meltdown and so did not care. I laughed really. And did you all hear the gun shots ringing out in the background? How pathetic is that? His whole thug to the tenth power routine is completely played out.

  11. OMG, is Lil Wayne retarded? He acts retarded and that foolishness about stepping up to raise your own kids was a thinly veiled way to let filthy rappers off the hook for the filth they pump into the Black community.

  12. Did Beyonce say she is terrible at accepting speeches :lol2:

  13. Kelly can work on her voice a little. Beyonce is an Icon still at it. A rebel without a cause shall we say. And didn’t seem like Diana was talking to Beyonce when she said act classy?

  14. “laid back version of Get Me Bodied” yes i didn’t enjoy it-only the opening. I liked Kelly’s outfit[wonder woman] and performance -her mic was horrible

  15. I wanted more from Kelly tonight. She looked so pretty though and those booty shorts added a couple of pounds to her frame. I am really feeling her after seeing her perform Bump Like This a few times this week. I hope she is blessed with great first week sales of her new album :koolaid:

  16. Ciara ripped Janet’s whole style at the beginning but she was still boring. Truth is she needs to lip sync. Her inability to sing live and dance at the same time kills her performances. She wasn’t that good to me and I think people are overhyping her and Beyonce’s performances. Nobody really kicked butt tonight but if I had to chose any one performance it would be Puffy and Keyshia Cole. Lil Kim could have stayed home though. The overall love vibe of the evening was great though πŸ™‚

  17. I HAVE TO SAY ONE THING; WHEN WILL BEYONCE GET HER OWN CREATIVITY AND ORIGINALITY BECAUSE SHE COPIED KYLIE’S MONIQUE ENTRANCE LAST NIGHT. KELLY ROWLAND AND EVE LIVIN THE SHOW UP. THE CROWD WOULD NOT MOVE FOR BEYONCE, AND SHE TOLD THEM TO GET UP AND THEY JUST SAT THERE, BUT WHEN KELLY AND EVE CAME OUT THE CROWD WENT WILD, WILD, WILD. AND CIARA TORE THE ROOF OFF!!! SHE REMINDS ME OF JANET JACKSON ONLY JANET IS THE GREATEST PERFORMER OF ALL TIMES!! I WILL LEAVE THE LINK TO WHERE YOU CAN WATCH KYLIE MONIQUE’S ENTRANCE FROM HER 2002 TOUR PERFORMANC AND BEYONC’S BET 2007 ENTRANCE PERFORMANCE THIS IS WHY B WILL NEVER BE AN ICON OR LEGEND, YOU HAVE TO BREAK SOME RECORDS AND SHE HAS NOT DONE THAT YET MEANING CREATIVITY!!!
    RETURN OF THE BEYONCE RECYCLING;

  18. Music award shows have not been exciting since the 80’s and early 90’s when Michael and Janet Jackson ruled the charts. They just don’t make artist like James Brown and the Temptations. It is just not the same. But I respect Ms. Ross so much. She puts the “D” in Diva.

    :brownsista:

  19. [quote comment=”9525″]where was jay-z[/quote]

    That’s the same thing I was thinking. Where was Jay?

  20. The hate on Robin Thicke was unneccessary. His album is solidly good material, he can sing, and I have seen him live and he is a fab performer. I was sad he did “Lost Without You” because that song was released over a year ago, which maybe explains why he wasn’t as “into it” as he could have been.

  21. I love the two jennifers they did there thing they sang that song not sing but sang. Love TI lil self. The perform from beyonce and kelly and michelle and solange was wonderful. Love them pants beyonce had on i did no like the top. Kelly look so cute and i was upset with the mic but other then that the way they pop out at the end of the perform was hot. Patty, Glady, Yolanda and Eddie love the performance they made me cry. What was up with 50 cent i was disappoint in him butVERY NICE BODY LOL. Diana look good to be 63 i hope i be looking like that when i hit that age i have along way to go. Monique is a hot mess for real. She was doing it in those dresses. I like her performance 2004 better but she still do the damn thing. Over all the bet was nice show like alway. Next year u have 2 have cat william do the hosting. I take that back the show be over before it start. LUV U KATT.

  22. Okay, I must be having a slow day because I just watched the YouTube showing of the destiny child’s performance (I’m still a DC fan) for my second time and for the life of me I can’t figure out why Solonge was on stage with Kelly, Michele and Beyonce. Am I missing something folks? Did she join the group at some point and I don’t know about it? Ugh, that annoys me for no good reason.

    Just saw Keyisha & Diddy’s performance too – love it! I’ve liked that song for a long time and it was nice to watch them perform. Now I’m kind of regretting watching Hell’s Kitchen instead of tuning into BET. Kind of. Well, no, not really. Just catching the recaps online is good enough for me.

  23. Mathew is determined to make Solange a star even if it kills US. There truly was no reason whatsoever for her to be on stage. If anything it is sad she feels she must compete with Beyonce for the spotlight.

  24. Yes, Solange should just keep herself as a back up singer on bey’s tracks, but they way they try to shove her down everyone’s throat is annoying. Why on Tyra’s show were they giving away her album, ugggh! :noway:

  25. Pardon me I meant to say “They Always try to shove her down your throat” πŸ˜†

  26. Your right Liyah she was kind of pushed down our throats. I was like WTF is she doing there!! But I still loved it!

  27. I thought the show was ok…I do agree Jennifer Hudson should have had on spanx…I thought Little Kim forgot some of the words to the song and Puffy was going to go “Making the Band” crazy on her…I love MoNique…however did she have have announce every act like Oprah…Here is CIAARRRRAAAA! I am over 50 cents…his stock went down….now he is .5 cents…I heard on the radio that the crowd wasn’t really feeling Puffy or 50..or Nick Cannon.. Lloyd’s hair was nice and bouncy…Does anyone know the words to “Party Like a Rock Star” because I couldn’t understand anything except for the chorus….I loved Julissa’s dress

  28. “Does anyone know the words to “Party Like a Rock Star” because I couldn’t understand anything except for the chorus”

    ….Girl I don’t think they know!!! LOL :mrgreen:
