    WOW! No Kelly Rowland she had one of the hottest songs of 2011 and was nominated for every other award show this year for Motivation. Plus her SHUT THE SHOW DOWN LAST YEAR! BET Awards nominations always seem random & a popularity contest! Usher Climax is already nominated!

      Beyonce is barely r&b these days, Chris Brown and Usher are mainly pop these days. Most of the “big acts” are not doing straight r&b, Rihanna is no different. Lots of people are moving into dance/pop music, even the rappers.

        I don’t have a problem with them nominating CB, Usher or Rihanna because of their POP songs, because Billboard awards and mainstream awards give our black categories to white artist. LFMAO won a rap category this year, that was a joke. But I do think Rihanna should’ve been nominated for WE FOUND LOVE was the best video of the year and I think CB TUTM was also better than Beyonce videos. There was nothing specail about Beyonce videos. Run this world was better than those, but they nominated her for that song last year.

    i think BET should create a pop category because rihanna isnt an r&b artist!! and it makes little sense that she is nominated in that category, i think beyonce will/should win it this year for 4.

        @LAX ‘4’ was & is an amazing album. The songs are unlike anything you hear on the radio today. Yeah Kelly got snubbed but that shouldn’t take away from the fact that ‘4’ is a deserving album. Musically 4 was better than a lot of albums released in 2011, the vocals & melodies were on point & the overall production was flawless.

        I agree with everyone, BET totally is kissing Bey and Jay if you notice they have the most nomination and Jay and Kanye artist has nominations, they owned and threw some money to BET to dominated the awards. If you notice Bey or Jay , didn’t get that many awards on the mainstream awards shows. Its all about power and popularity and who can make the most money for them. Beyonce videos wasn’t all that good, their were so many good videos out last year, what a shame on BET. Beyonce fans can’t admit that those videos that Beyonce have isn’t all that good.

      Whatchu need to be concerned about is that cokewhore you call a fave further embarrasing his self by lip-synching horrible at this award show with another one of his tired as performances. Keep your eyes glued to the tv when Beyonce performs and see how A real woman (the woman Chris wish he could be) does it. K. Thanks Lame.

        I don’t care about her performance, her songs sucks. Her videos sucks and this isn’t about CB. This about all the artist out there who had better videos and sold more than BEyonce gold singles. Since you brought up CB, he has the most BET wins over Beyonce, but since they nominated her for everything that she didn’t deserve, I guess she will past CB in BET wins this year.

        And WTF are you talking about? Beyonce has also used a backtrack when she does heavy dance routines see 2011 BBMA & TBE DVD for details. I LOVE to watch Bey dance but since you want to go there, make sure the “REAL WOMEN” you speak of does not VISIT YOUTUBE prior to yet another one of her performances and becomes “INSPIRED” (LOOKS LIKE STEALING TO EVERYONE ELSE) by another artist’s work (see ANNE TERESE DE KEERSMAEKER for details) :-(

      Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” along with Breezys “Turn Up The Music” should have been nominated for Video of the Year! BET is obviously playing games with this bullsh** right here! 2 Beyonce videos and 2 Camel videos? Come on now really 0_O???

        We are not talking about her album, what did her singles do? Her singles only went gold look it up. She sold based on her name, not because the songs were so good. Notice she have a whole lot of nomination at the Grammys or Billboard awards for her songs. She is nominated for her songs not her album, Party and Love on top, should not be video of the year, was nothing fantastic about those videos, no hating at all, there were so many good videos by other artist last year.

Beyonce’s music is 100% better than autotune pseudo-singer Chris. U keep mentioning singles … Singles that are either electro pop or feature a million artists. He cant sell anything on his own cus his material is wack n his vocals are mediocre.
        Album sales >>>>> singles sales. Im sure u can do basic maths. Chris only won the billboard award cus he featured on almost every urban song last year. He’s terrible performer even celebs call him out. When Bey performed they were all praising her. Fist Frown will NEVER accomplish half of what Beyonce has. 6nods >>>>> 3nods

    SMH … BET (Black Entertainment Television) doesn’t support their OWN BLACK Artist. I think this is a reason why she is having a hard time with becoming a successful solo artist. All these black/urban outlets have their favorites. Kelly should’ve been nominated and she really have several videos from Here I Am and BET only played MOTIVATION. They NEVER played LAY IT ON ME or KEEP IT BETWEEN US, but every damn video Beyoncé puts out. They play it. I love beyonce and Kelly, and I’m not trying to compare them. But BET just proved two members from one group cannot be successful. Only one can. SMH.

      I’ve not watched BET in like forever but if that is true, that sad and is just prejudice. What I blame Kelly for is sacrificing her international audience for USA (don’t get me wrong) but build herself more internationally, especially after “When love takes over” (More TV appearance, live show etc. and then during X-factor- because she was in UK). Then maybe US.

      That life though.

        That’s true, but you really can’t abandon your roots. She’s from the US & she has US fans that really want her music, So therefore, she has to cater 2 us. But she should do the international thing a little bit more, because she is more successful in Europe and in other countries. I just think she can’t promote an album and be a judge because Here I Am was her best album and it could’ve done wayyy better if she had time to promote it more and release her singles on time.

When was the last time she performed at the awards show, damn when’s the last time she been on 106 & Park or did an interview with the network. Rihanna doesn’t see it for her urban audience, and apparently they don’t see it for her either. LMFAO

    Kelly Performed Motivation at the BET awards last year, but what about “Lay it on me” ? I think Ashanti and Elle Varner should of been nominated for Best Female R&B artist as well, the best Male Hip Hop had a lot of nominees. I hope Ashanti performs The Woman You Love and Foolish, because I think she has grown a lot as a female artist in this industry. I think they set Trina & Diamond up for failure they both had mix tapes not albums so obviously Nicki Minaj is gonna win. I think Beyonce, Rihanna, and Chris Brown have all turned into pop artist, but they do deserve the awards they were nominated for. Hopefully a handful of young great singers do the Whitney Houston Tribute: Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Brandy, Ashanti, Monica, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J Blige, Rihanna, Fantasia, Keri Hilson, and Alicia Keys.

    The BET Award nominations been a joke. This is nothing new. The use of the show is for entertainment purposes. Who is the best entertainer today? BEYONCE. So why not do everything in your power not to get her on the show. Beyonce don’t care bout no damn BET awards when she got 16 grammies….Probably uses them for paper weights or someshit. Get over it. BET is being smart! When will they ever get a chance to get Beyonce and Watch theThrone to perform in one night? And they are doing a whitney tribute too. This is their opportuntity to create the best show and ratings they have ever gotten. They did what they had to do and I am not mad. While yall crying over missed award opportunites for Kelly (the same chick who wanted to play reality tv judge when she had an album out) and Rihanna (who dont care about no damn BET award, and she shouldn’t) then go ahead and be basic b******. Me I am hoping for Beyonce to feel obligation to come and so should Jay and Kanye (Kim better bring her ass too). As well, I hope that the Whitney tribute is beautiful with contributions from Mariah, Patti, Beyonce, Leidesi, Brandy, Monica, Toni, and all the other great voices of today. s***, maybe Ciara ass will come out of hiding and do a suprise performance to kick the summer off. Yall worried about the wrong things.

    Beyonce deserves her nominations, end of story. If they had a best R&B song category Kelly would have been nominated but they don’t. Based on the performance of her album as a whole Kelly fans should not be surprised about her lack of a nomination. The video was too risque and one R&B hit with poor album sales will not guarantee a nomination when there are more successful artists to compete with. Maybe next time.

It should go to Bey for eiither “Countdown” or “Love on Top” I really like coountdown though. they will probably give the award to Camel for “Otis”. They shoul hsve had TUTM inthis category, Anyay, I am ubder excited about the Best Video Director of th eYear Award.

Beyonce is great but those videos aren’t even the best vids off her album, “Run The World” was a much better vid & was #2 on Notarized.

    Let me start by saying kelly should be nominated for r and b artist and rihanna should not be there. The last time she had an r and b album was back back in da day and it flopped. I bet the navy cannot remember right?

    1. i really don’t understand why you all are pressed about beyonce’s nominations. This woman is working hard behind the scenes directing and producing while yall fav stays on instagram, twitter and in the strip club. when she gets recognized yall want to make useless noise.

    2. A complex video doesn’t make it great. Adele video last year snatched wigs on MTV and she was just sitting on a chair. Learn people learn. WFL was a pop video and promoted so much negativity. Rihanna doesn’t deserve any nominations for that crap, well maybe at the MTV. Don’t be surprise if she is snubbed again for her disrespectful attitude towards them in the past and recently. I hope they snub her again cause that bad girl attitude takes you no where.

    3. To the ritards who say beyonce is not r and B. Beyonce went to superstartdom with an r and b album and stayed. She had a few pop songs on IASF and returned to r and b with 4. How is she not r and B

    You fav always burst her ass and get no where but uses her fans indirectly on twitter for single sales. So many nominations at billboard and gets ONE AWARD FOR STREAMING? STREAMING? NOT EVEN HER CRAFT? she needs to do more collaborations since that is what gives her her awards. damn ass navy.

As for Rihanna. She’s definitelyy not a R&B artist but she has had some hits on the R&B charts n the last past years. I think that’s why Bet nominated her. As for KING B! She may not deserved two nods n one cat but 4 was an R&B album. BTINH, Party and LOT all peaked n the top 5, with LOT spending 7 consecutive weeks at #1. The Contempary Urban radio stations have recently just start playing Beyonce’s 4. They don’t cater to mainstream R&B acts. They cater to acts like Jill Scott, Eric Benet’ and Ledsi. If Beyonce wasn’t R&B, she definitely wouldn’t get any play that much on those stations. People need to STFU, if they don’t know WTH they are talking about!

    Kelly should’ve been in the Female R&B Artist, Collabo, & Video of the Year categories yet she walks away with not even one nom. Hell she gave this very show their best performance of that year (their words by the way) & they give her not even one nomination.Motivation also was one of the biggest songs BET had as well as one of the most played videos, so wtf! They don’t even play Bruno Mars stuff & even he has a nomination for Male R&B artist. I use to joke about sayin this but now I do believe they go eenie meenie minie mo…

    I told you…….
    Beyonce was SLAYING on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, where Rihanna’s BLACK ass was FLOPPING, and all the s*** your 11-y.o. pink ass would come up with was “FLAAAAAWWWWPPPP. WFL IS #1 FOR THE 10TH WEEK ON THE HOT100. THAT R&B CHART IS IRRELEVANT. WFL>>>>BLEACH-ONCE’S SINGLES. TTT OUTSOLD 4LOP IN A MATTER OF MONTHS”.

    Now your ass is CRYING because Rihanna isn’t nominated on the IRRELEVANCE that is BET: The biggest R&B/Hip-Hop award show on the planet??????????

    #KINGB, and you’ll deal.

    You do realize that if Beyonce wan’t nominated a lot for 4 she would go back to pop, roght? She made a R&B ALBUM!!! It was snubbed everywhere else. If she came”home” and was still snubbed she woulda chucked up the dueces and made the best pop music ever! I honestly want more pop. Not saying generic fast food music but pop. I don’t usually comment but this needed to be said. + Beyonce did have sloppy prmo but in all she really tried. Hopefully she wins at least 3. Good luck to her. :D
