Last night was the 2014 BET Awards and it was a very interesting night. Very entertaining! At first, we were skeptical about Chris Rock being the host of the BET Awards, but he turned out to be HILARIOUS! He wasn’t holding back on ANYTHING! He really had no restrictions to anything he said. Chris main targets were Jay & Bey, TI & Tiny, Rick Ross, and Paris Hilton. We agree he could have gave them a little slack especially since TI and Tiny were looking happy watching the awards together. We don’t recall the camera capturing Rozay’s reactions to any of Chris’ jokes. Probably because he tweeted “Chris Rock is washed up”. Besideds all that, our funniest Chris Rock moment was when he went to a Monster Truck show to ask them about the BET Awards. HILARIOUS!
Best Dress: There were a lot of nice dressed individuals on the red carpet but the one individual who stood out the most for us was Tatyana Ali. What made Tatyana Ali stand out from the rest is the fact that she had a beautiful red dress that was not too revealing. Definitely appropriate for the awards show and the extremely hot weather in LA.
Best Performance: It’s hard to just choose just one performance as being the best performance when there was so many, so we’ll choose four instead. Our top four performances were Usher, August Alsina along with Trey Songz & Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and John Legend & Jhene Aiko. Pharrell was pretty good as well, it was good seeing Missy Elliot perform again.
Most Deserving Award Winners: Pharrell definitely deserved winning the Video of the Year & Best Male R&B/Pop Artist Awards. Happy was an international song that many people love and can relate to. It’s only right that Lupita N’yongo wins for Best Actress Award at every single award show. Let us not forget to applaud Urban Prep Academy and Mr. Tim King for being acknowledged for all their achievements and success!
The Humanitarian Award/BET Remembers: It was an honor to have Mrs. Myrlie Evers-Williams educate us all on the importance of remembering where we all came from. Ms. Phylicia Rashad was the perfect person to pay speak on the remembrance of Ruby Dee and Dr. Maya Angelou.
Lifetime Achievement Award: The Lionel Richie was well deserving. Lionel has been around for years, made history and worked with some of the best of the best. The actual tribute warmed our hearts especially when Yolanda Adams graced the stage. But it’s when Lionel picked up the mic and gave the crowd a performance that had everyone out of their seats.
Highlight Moment of the Night: Everyone was definitely anticipating to see Chris Brown perform due to the fact it’s been a while since we last seen Chris Brown in a positive light. August Alsina bringing Trey Songz & Chris Brown to join him on stage to sing “I Love It”. And let us forget what sparked the crowd’s eyes when Chris Rock passed out Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles.
What are some of your thoughts…Talk Ish!
