BET Awards '09: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Last night (6/28/09) was the BET Awards/Michael Jackson Tribute. The night was filled with highs and lows. You still have to give it up the BET Staff for doing the best they could in a short amount of time. Shout out to all the people in the chatroom last night (Illmatic, NYShorty, CeeGee2009, Emma, Ahseya_ayesha and everyone else). Very Entertaining!!

Here are a few of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly moments from the show.

  • Janet Jackson coming out to thank the fans on behalf of the family. Thank you Janet we really needing to hear that!! (Video #1)
  • Jamie Foxx performing Blame It with T-Pain. Along with special guests Snoop Dogg (still not sure why he was out there) and Travis Barker from Blink 182.
  • Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence teaming up as Sheneneh and Wanda in Skank Robbers...VERY FUNNY!! (Video #2)
  • Day 26's performance at the pre-show after winning Best Group.

  • Young Money - Drake, Lil Wayne, Baby (Birdman) performance...well what you could hear of it after all the bleeps.
  • Keri Hilson's performance of Turning Me Off/Knock You Down.
  • Pleasure P/Marcus Cooper running out of breath singing his own song during the pre-show. Not sure if I can call it singing...he just talked most of the lyrics.
  • Ving Rhames coming out with Tyrese and Taraji P. Henson for a Baby Boy movie flashback that didn't work.
  • Drake, Lil Wayne, Baby (Birdman) for having little girls on stage as they perform Every Girl. Not a good look!!
  • The sound guy not have the mics loud enough for the presenters and the person that was doing the bleeps missing most of the words that needed to be Eddie Levert's slip. LIVE TV...Gotta Love It!!
  • Tiny and Toya promoting their new BET show. They say isn't a Baby Mama show. What else is it?? Picture below of Tiny accepting T.I.'s award for Viewers' Choice and her celebrity look-a-like Miss Piggy. It's the hair.
