Today was the premiere episode of Just Keke, hosted by Keke Palmer on BET. She has just become the youngest daytime talk show host to do it.
The show was really great. I loved Keke’s high energy. She came out and really put on a show. I also love the heavy incorporation of social media. She was recording from her phone a lot and talking about a lot of what we talk about on Twitter. Of course, Keke is a hometown girl so we had to show her love.
She did a recap of the BET awards with her phone and some quick interviews from the casts of The Game and Being Mary Jane. She then talked about the song Loyal and what it has come to mean for women in relationships, with the audience putting in their two cent. She received a call from Kevin Hart congratulating her and wishing her luck. She then went into what people’s male crushes were and was surprised by her own male crush, Michael Ealy, who came out and gave her flowers. After that she had a segment about the many ridiculous tweets that people have put out. She then held a cypher between two groups of MCs, who were then voted on by the crowd. It was all together a very fun and entertaining show. It put me in the mind of teen summit.
Just Keke comes on weekdays at 5/4c. I will definitely be tuning in. Tomorrow she will be having Trayvon Martin’s best friend Rachel Jeantel the show, which I love. Tune in. I know I will.
