The red carpet special had me thinking this production might be a tad “hood” but I was hoping for the best! Toni Braxton started the show off with her new single and a new wig. The wig was much better than her regular situation. It was good enough for Trey Songz to want to sing and kiss Ms. Toni. The kiss, which we have found out was management-arranged was super tacky. Therefore, I will now be referring to Toni as “Tacky Toni.”
I forgot that Terrance Howard could sing. He and Taraji come out singing their rendition of “Reunited” and it was pretty dope. They also kissed on the lips and it was much less tacky in comparison to the messy kiss between Tacky Toni and Trey Songz!
Keri Hilson wraps up the first award with best new artist and it was then that I noticed that she had the weirdest wig.. it had like a duck tail. She is quite sexy to me though!
In between dumb jokes we got to meet the ladies from the “Queen Project” with Kelly Price, Deborah Cox, and Tamia. They presented the award for the album of the year which went to Beyonce. She accepted her award from Russia. Keri was next to perform and I decided that she is a level two Ciara.
Keith Sweat comes out to introduce Charlie Wilson. Not sure what eh was doing but everything about him was annoying. I wonder if he bumped into his ex-wife Lisa Wu Hartwell while at the show! With all due respect to the Legendary Charlie Wilson, how old are you when you are too old to have braids and wear hats in buildings? Ginuwine comes out to perform for Charlie and started on the wrong note but later got it together. Kandi and Brian McKnight comes out to sing something. Kandi sounds a mess. Well, I guess she was aiight.
I’m a fan of Ryan Leslie’s but that performance wasn’t at all memorable. Mario is one of my favorites. I would say he would he does no wrong but who does a song with Sean Garrett! Musical beauty. Musical beast.
I’m not really a Trey Songz fan and I am certain he didn’t invent sex but since the fall of Chris Brown.. he is at the top of his game and I can’t be mad! The song is not bad.
The Soul Train review lost me whenTaraji opened it up as Diana Ross. IS THAT CHICO?
I loved Boys II Men. They remind me of my entire childhood! The singing of Raheem D. is great!
Not many awards were given out at this show but if I could just make up one, I would give it to Chrissette Michelle for having the dopest performance of the night. I need to add her to my Xmas list!
Why does BET need a new network when they don’t even have the first one together! What was that rat-colored shrug Debra Lee had on? Her hair was nice though. Anyways.. the highlight of this show was the group of SANGERS that paid tribute to Chaka Khan…. Erykah Badu was AWESOME! Angie was alright. Chaka has on Precious’ pajamas.
