God it was painful to watch the BET Awards last night. I finally gave up about two hours into the three hour and fifteen minute show. With the exception of Usher, Ne-yo, Alicia Keys, and Chris Brown the entire show was one massive train wreck.

The state of black music is in a major crisis. I kept thinking it's a damn shame the music industry doesn't know what to do with a talent like Jennifer Hudson while I was watching Keyshia Cole sing off-key while simultaneously butchering her simple choreography.

A few questions:

1.Why in the hell is Lil Kim unrecognizable?

2.Why did Chris Brown not looked moved when the camera panned to him after Usher's performance? LOL!

3. Lord why was DL Hughley hired to host the show? Didn't his career end a while ago? He's so much better as a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher. The fool called Marvin Sapp "Warren" Sapp! And all of his jokes fell flat.

4. T-Pain. Can we say minstrel show?

5. Where in the hell was Janet? Or Beyonce for that matter, the show was screaming for real star power.

Get into loldarian.com affiliates Clay Cane and Gyant's recap. Gyant did a live blog last night and has video of all of the performances. And of course Clay's review is hilarious!

I watched a few minutes of it and I was done. It seemed to have gone down a bit this year. No one seemed to be very excited to be there at all. And why did they have lil wayne close the show. IMO, the closing number should be something spectacular that leaves you wanting more and gives you something to talk about afterwards but I just wasn't feeling it. I wasn't feeling any of it this year.

I feel you on the D.L. thing. Somebody needs to take him to the Silvan learning Center because he sure was struggling with the teleprompter. It was like he'd never seen words before. Keyshia Cole was a Hot Mess AS USUAL. The BET Awards are just not the same w/o Beyonce' lol. All the beezys and jeezys and weezys....... my goodness. I rarely tune to BET and last nights awards was just a long drawn out reminder why I don't watch.

Darian, I too was XTREMELY Disappointed with the Showcase. I think that Ushers performance fell FLAT as a Show Opener, and from there, excluding The Phenom that is ALICIA KEYS, everything else pretty much TANKED.

I Do, however, give a Round of Applause to Miss. Ciara and Mr. Chris Browns Dance Performance. Very Innovative and Fresh.

Allegedly, Lil' Kim has had some plastic surgery which is why she doesn't look like herself. Also why has Usher been lip-synching ever since he started to promote his new CD?
Love your blog and will visit again soon!
