Ok... I'm going to say my review on the BET Awards...It may be long, so you don't have to read it if you don't want too... Lol!
I didn't like the opening act. Big Sean, 2 Chain, Pusha T and Kanye? Really? Is this the BET Hip Hop Awards? They could've got a better opening act than that. An opening act that someone that we can remember and haven't seen in a while. Kind of like when The Fugees came out in 2005 and no one expected to see them... Smh. They really could've done something better than that.Â
I didn't like Usher performance.... I do like Climax, but why did he have to perform the WHOLE SONG though? Usher is supposedly recognize for being an ENTERTAINER a PERFORMER. Why couldn't he perform one of his uptempo songs? Why didn't he dance and give us an entertaining performance? He could of did a melody of Climax and than perform one of his uptempos. Smh.Â
I'm not a huge fan of Gospel, but I thought it was ok. Not good. Not bad. Just ok.
I think next was D'Angelo's performance...I didn't like his performance either. When he first came onto that stage and started singing âHow Does It Feel?â I thought he was going to deliver a good performance. But WHY did he *** that song up and STAYED on the other song TOO LONG?!?!?! Smh. How Does It Feel is what D'Angelo is KNOWN FOR. WHY DIDN'T HE PERFORM THAT WHOLE SONG? AND WHY DIDN'T HE PERFORM "LADY" and "BROWN SUGAR",etc. What the HELL was that last song he performed? NOBODY knows. And WHY did he kept going ON AND ON with that SHOOBOODOO type *** when he had OTHER CLASSIC SONGS that people were LOOKING FORWARD to HEARING? Everyone, and I mean EVVVERRRYYONE was looking forward to D'Angelo on Twitter and Exspecially on the Red Carpet, but he just disappointed ME and I'm sure everyone else. His performance was WAY TOO OVERLY HYPED UP. I really thought he was going to deliver. Smh.
I'm not sure but I think Melanie Fiona was after him. Her performance was ok . I'm not a fan of Â Melanie, but which ever song she sang was good. I knew Melanie Fiona could sing good AKA her very first single but I didn't know she could sing LIKE THAT. She did good and reminded me that R&B music still has a chance.Â
Hmm... After her was Nicki I think. I was actually prepared for Nicki to give a bad performance, but I thought she did good. I really love the first song she performed, "Champion". Beez In The Trap was good too, but I was *** how they kept bleeping every curse word WAAAYYY TOO LONG. But her performance seem calm. She needs to perform more like that often.
Not a fan of MMG and I wasn't into their performance...Â
Not a fan of Maze and Frankie Beverly but I guess the tribute was ok....
I think after a while Chris Brown performed. I was disappointed with his performance. He performed TWO POP SONGS ON THE BET AWARDS. Why didn't he performed âSweet Loveâ or why didn't he performed âBirthday Cakeâ and brought out Rihanna as a surprise guest? Everybody would've been talking... I was just underwhelmed. His performance was too *** and he didn't bring it like I thought he was going too. And performing Pop songs on BET Awards isn't the place for that. I expected more. Smh.
Whitney Tribute was last I believe... Bringing out Mariah was ok. Monica performed a gospel song... I didn't like it. Well, I thought she sang it good but WHY didn't she sing one of Whitney songs like IWALY or I Have Nothing? I thought her voice wouldve been good for that. They could've left the gosepl songs to Cissy and Whitney's brother. Brandy did good, and so did Chaka but I felt like that tribute was TOO ***. WHY COULDN'T BeyonÄe AND Mariah be apart of the Tribute PERFORMING?? It would've made it COMPLETE and they focused MORE on Gospel than Whitney songs. I understand Gospel is Whitney's roots but.... I wanted to hear more WHITNEY SONGS being performed.Â
The host Samuel was WACK and BET knew it cause WHY did they have to bring out Kevin Hart again to do the skits and bring him out to talk? Smh. If BET wanted to get a GOOD AND FUNNY Host for the BET Awards, they could've choosed Martin, Chris Rock or Tyler Perry AKA Madea. They do NOT know how to put shows together and it is Debrea Lee's fault and Stephen Hills.Â
The BET Awards was not all that this year. It really could've been better. Smh. And if you actually think that this was the best âBET Awards Everâ than you must not have that much knowledge and you need to look back on the previous BET Awards. The audience kept me more entertained than the performances. ***, Beyonce entertained me more and she didn't even performed (even though I wish she did). Plus her and Jay's cute little competitive battle for Video Of The Year, lol! And not to mention when Jay pulled a Kanye on Kanye during his speech!! Lol!Â
But this awards was WAY TOO OVERLY Hyped Up. It seems like BET always do that *** and when you are excited to watch the awards and you finally do, it don't even be as good as you thought it would be. We didn't even have SURPRISES. You can include Mariah, but that was the ONLY surprise and BET is usually known to give more. Smh. The rating for this show was a 3 or less. I was disappointed.
