BET Awards 2009

So like every year, the BET Awards proves to be a huge disappointment, yet again.. as stated by Miss Jia best. Debra Lee (President & Chief Executive Officer of BET) stated the whole show would undergo a total overhaul to be dedicated to Michael. And it was obvious 3 days wasn't nearly enough for them. Not only were the O'Jays attributed more than Michael, but there was no real knockout (dance) performance to commemorate his greatness exuded through dance. I'm not even tryna knock Jamie and Ne-Yo's "I'll Be There" rendition at the end, because that was truly heart-felt.. but I (I, as in America) was anticipating a Chris Brown comeback performance.

Now I'm hearing through the grapevine that Jay-Z is the reason Chris Brown was taken out of the line-up of MJ tributes. Jay-Z threatened to retract not only his, but BEYONCE's performance as well if BET let Chris perform. And BET trying to do damage control knew that they couldn't afford to lose both Hov & B's performances.. Because they had already been scheduled to perform, Chris was all speculation.

All in all, Keri's performance was the best to me.. although the ending improv acapella was unecessary and somewhat damaging to the performance as a whole. She shoulda ended it when the music stopped.. just my opinion. The highlight of the night was definitely Janet (looking absolutely stunning by the way) and her thoughtful words. Prayers still going out to the Jackson family.

    Awww I understand what you mean....

    Look @ the past years and how BET has declined

    They supposedly "didn't what they could do in short notice" but I believe they could have done more!
    My channel will continue to skip BET after the tributes

    FuCk BET

    YO! it was rubbish
    completely unorganized - mayhem
    i get the quickly altered it to tribute MJ's passing but i say they should of just made a tribute concert & televise it!

    the CHris Breezy drama is stupid
    i heard the same and yeah...supposedably Bey & J intervened which truly is disappoint cuz i was expecting a career reserecting preformance from him

    KERI it honestly could of gone without... & it [the a cappella] did more damage than good

    overall BET better make '10 better

    plus the fashion was WHACK!
    wtfeezy was Bey wearing too short & not cut
    Keri dress design was cute, the print was very comic book
    & everyone just wasnt on point

    thats my 2 cent & change ha

    thank you! im glad someone agrees with me. the end of keri's performance was definitely unnecessary. All in all, i think the show was "okay..." and only that.
