BET 2007 Award Highlights

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

If you missed the opening of the BET Awards, you missed a spectacular performance by two dynamic singers. To see Jennifer Holiday on stage with Jennifer Hudson was classic. I could watch that performance over and over. They had me standing up out of my seat.

Monique did not disappoint when she made her grand entrance on to the stage with her rendition of Beyonce's Deja Vu. When she called LL Cool J up to take off her other shoe, I was floored. Me and every other woman was wishing LL was taking our shoes off.

Beyonce did her thing; have to give her props on how she came on the stage. She even brought back out Monique and she did an old school dance. Ms. B turned the stage over to Kelly Rowland and her & Eve did "Like This" and the performance ended with sort of a Destiny's Child reunion.

I must back up to the pre-show. Did anyone else see Lloyd perform? It's something about the 21 year old cutie from my home state that makes me wish I was just a few years younger. Back to his performance. He reminds me of a younger Michael Jackson; when Michael was Black. I hope to see Lloyd around for many years to come.

One of the most disappointing performances was that of 50 Cent. Now I'm not the person who choreographed his performance, but it sure looked like he forgot the words to his own song. There was like a 2 minute music break before he came back with the hook.

T.I.'s performance was okay but I felt it could have been better. I do like the song and can't wait to hear T.I.P's entire CD.

Lil' Kim did a surprise visit on stage during P Diddy's and Keshia Cole's performance. Up until now she's been keeping a low profile.

The performance that brought tears to my eyes was the tribute to Gerald Levert. Eddie Levert, Patti Labelle, & Yolanda Adams didn't just sing, they sung that song. I'm sure I wasn't the only one with tears in her eyes.

Public Enemy with Chuck D and Flavor Flav brought back memories with their performance that was dedicated to the godfather of soul James Brown. You'll be hearing folks say "I'm black and I'm proud" more often. Sadly, we have to be reminded.

Did you see Ciara diss Bow Wow with that move when she exited the stage?

You know you're a diva when you can just hold out your two arms in the air and folks just go clapping crazy. The original diva herself graced the stage after Erkya Badu, Chaka Khan and Stevie Wonder sang a tribute in her honor. Ms. Diana Ross. "It took a lifetime to get here and I ain't going nowhere," Diana Ross said, as she graciously accepted the honor of being a BET Living Legend.
