Last night, the 2015 BET Honors aired on both BET & Centric. It is always awesome to see every year the great honorees on BET Honors. It was definitely what extraordinary looks like.
The show was hosted by Wayne Brady who opened up with a big dance & rap number to “It Takes Two”. From there Keshia Knight Pulliam presenting the Education award to Dr. Johnnetta Betsh Cole.
There were musical performances by Ne-Yo, Charlie Wilson, K. Michelle, Patti Labelle & the Spelman & Howard choirs, Trey Songz, who performed Nice & Slow, & Mary J. Blige. Each award was presented by a special person. Anthony Anderson presented the Technology & Business award to John W. Thompson, Dame Dash & his daughter presented the Visionary award to Kanye West, Ben Vereen & surprise guest Bobby Brown presented the Musical Arts award to Usher, & Glynn Turman & Diahann Carroll presented the Theatrical Arts award to Phylicia Rashad.
Each honoree gave great speeches. Kanye gave a very interesting one that I’m sure you will all hear about. Kanye was honored with a rap by Ellen Degeneres. They also honored early risers Jeremy Anderson & Chental-Song Bembry.
As always the evening was incredible. It is always a great contribution to black history month. Look out for when it re-airs on BET. There are photos of the honorees & performances below:
