BET Awards 2007 Performances

Published: Tuesday 26th Jun 2007 by Sam

The 2007 BET Awards took place tonight in LA. Performers included Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Ne-Yo and Jennifer Hudson. Check out the performance vids below:

Jennifer Hudson & Jennifer Holliday – ‘And I Am Telling You’

 

 

T.I. – Big Things Poppin’

 

Diddy (w/ Keyshia Cole & Lil’ Kim) – ‘Last Night’

 

Ne-Yo & Fabolous – Because of You/Make Me Better

 

Beyonce & Kelly Rowland – ‘Get Me Bodied’ / ‘Like This’

 

Ciara – Like A Boy / That’s Right

 

Robin Thicke – Lost Without You

 

50 Cent – Amusement Park

 

Eryka Badu – Diana Ross Tribute


Judging from some of these performances as well as viewer reports, this years show was definitely one of the better instalments of the annual event. Performance of the night, in my opinion, goes to Beyonce and Kelly Rowland’s joint showing. Everything about the performance was on-point; Beyonce nailed ‘Get Me Bodied’ and Kelly had her ‘coming out of the shadows’ moment by tearing down the stage with ‘Like This’ alongside Eve. Another notable performance was from Ciara, who did her thing with a medley of ‘Like A Boy’ and future single ‘That’s Right’. She has definitely upped her stage presence and live vocals too. I also really liked the Dreamgirls opening- which saw Jennifer Hudson perform ‘And I Am Telling You’ with the original Effie, Jennifer Holliday. It was a monumental moment seeing Jennifer Holliday finally get her moment to truly shine as Effie. On a side note, her facial expressions are still priceless lol. 50 Cent’s performance didn’t go…well just watch it lol. Overall it seemed like a great show.


What do you think of the show/performances?

    wow…I like your speedy upload….of course I’m like 6 hrs behind your time but still…..love it!

    My DC3 girls did the damn thing! I loved it!!

    Like I was really expecting Beyonce to do something outlandish to outshine Kelly but I like how it was kinda tame compared to her usual performances and how it incorporated Kelly AND that awesome booty poppin at the end hahaha!

    I think it was a nice little production. Really exhibited their commradare

    It was Ciara’s victory…Kells voice is sooo weak…it’s sad.

    the two Jen’s kicked b*** though! awesome.

  22. LaLa June 27, 2007

    *Jennifer Hoilday-Damn.Double Damn.

    *Didn’t watch T.I,I’m sure it was just like any other performance,nothing special.

    *Ya’ll know Diddy was gon lip-synch that s***! He sounds like crap on the track and he knows nobody wants to hear his ass live. Anywho,Key-Key sounded great,I think her best live performance to date. Grabbin on her man-gina wasen’t a good look tho.
    Lil Kim-FOOLYWANG!!

    *Ne-Yo and Fabo-Borrring

    *Beyonce-great as usual!

    Kelly and Eve-That girl tries soo hard,but there’s always something missing in her performances. This time it was her voice. Eve looked stunning,and sounded great.She gets the “most classy” award for the night. I mean damn,between Bee and Kelly half-ass naked,Lil Kim’s “pop,lock and drop it” routine and Key-Key grabbing her kitty kat, it was refreshing to see Eve do her thang.

    *Ciara-Her vocals were terrible which is to be expected, but I thought the outfits were cute,and the dancing was coo.I’ve seen better dance routines from her in the past though.

    *Robin Thicke-Excellent! I absoultely LOVE the salsa remix! His vocals were PERFECT, I would venture to say he sounded better than the original track. Dancers were good…a very good performance from Mr.Thicke.

    Last and definitely least..
    *50 Cent-That was dreadful. What the hell was up wit the long ass instrumental? That s*** made it look like he forgot the words! The crowd wasen’t feelin it, and neither was I. I wish that girl he spun around woulda puked on his ass,that would have made it a lil interesting. Time I’ll never get back….damn.

    BEE KIIILLLLLEEEEDDDD ITTT!!!!!!!! AAHHHHHHH

    THE LEGENDS TRIBUTE TO GERALD LEVERT
    CIARA AWSOME DANCER SHE SHUT BEYONCE DOWN!!!

    KELLY ROWLAND AND EVE VERY GOOD PERFORMANCE
    THE CROWD WOULD NOT EVEN MOVE FOR BEYONCE, BEYONCE TOLD THEM TO GET UP AND THEY JUST SAT THERE, BUT WHEN KELLY ROWLAND AND EVE CAME OUT THE CROWD WENT WILD, WILD, WILD, POOR BEYONCE WAS VERY BORING LAST NIGHT AND EVERY ONE IS SAYING THAT SHE TRIED TO OUTSHINE KELLY ROWLAND!!!

  26. Anonymous June 27, 2007

    I must have seen a different show because Kelly did not SHUT ANYTHING down!! Her vocals were not on point, nor were her dance steps. All she did was walk around the stage. Eve saved that performance.

  27. Anonymous June 27, 2007

    I forgot to mention Robin Thicke. I love his CD, but he looked so strange during his performance. His pitch was off at times and his ‘dancing’ should never see the light of day. His movements were jerky and stiff. I found myself laughing at him and saying, ‘bless his heart’.

    When will Beyonce stop stealing from people? She stole her robot s*** from Kylie Minogue. proof.

  29. Anonymous June 27, 2007

    OMG, I just saw that too on Perez Hilton’s website that Bey stole that intro from someone else’s show (Kylie Minouge) so blatant. Damn, she think black folks don’t watch anything else but her that she can get away with that stuff and not be called on it? Wow!! The baddest chick in the game? How about the least original chick?

    The show was HOTT….
    -Here is how the performances went for me
    -1st Beyonce’s and Kelly’s performance feat. eve. The way that they had beyonce open up for kelly was GREAT….Beyonce always sound good and performances are always on point…..but when she introduced Kelly (no one was exspecting that) and Kelly came out all hype…..it was GREAT…Kelly’s vocals weren’t the best that I’ve heard but her performance in all was GREAT.She had energy and stage presence was Fire. She commanded her performace.

    -2nd Ciara’s performance was good as well. But her vocals were not their at all. I see people saying stuff about Kelly but saying that Ciara’s performance was better. I don’t know if we saw the same thing or not but, Ciara didn’t hardly sing at all. She talked to the crowd a lot. But other than that vocally she wasn’t there at all she just danced.

    3rd Neyo performance was good. But I wished that he didn’t imitate Micheal Jackson as much as he did. But he did good.

    4th Keyshia Cole did her song. I say that because Diddy don’t say anything on the song. Keyshia sings the whole song it should be her feat. Diddy. And Lil Kim was hype.

    5th would be Robin Thicke even though his perfomnce was weak he tried and he was real good vocally.

    That’s my out look on the BET Awards………

  31. R June 27, 2007

    Some people Will do anything just to say BAD thing s ’bout Beyoncé…I’ve Never seen anybody saying that Kyllie copied madonna on sooooooo many things..Or Neyo/Chrisbrown/omarion..copying michael jackson???

    U GUYS REALLY THINK THAT SHE JUST “COPIED” THE THING LIKE THAT AND SAY:”Oh ima copy that, and everyone will think it’s from me..” pfff BEYONCE is SMATER than THAT ok !!!
    Oh,those who say that she copied a lot of things:make a LIST of all them and than,we’ll see aight!!I’m Sure you’ll more creative things than the other way around..

    And when they decided to put Bee first and then,kelly second.;it was exactly Fou U haters:stop saying that she’s stilling kelly’s thunder…She introduces her!!!

    Of course if she did past last OMG…U would have found a looooooot of things to say , trust me..but NO, U still got ya mounth runnin’

    Everybody copies everybody now..so WHAT THE HECK??? Just it’s BEYONCE it bothers U???

    Ciaria remids me a lot of Aaliyah and Janet…OHH For those who don’t know:NE-YO’S performance is COPY of janet’s performance in tne VMA’s 2000 for doesn’t really matter…NOBODY noticed that?LOL,same cage,with the dansers in it…the only diference is ne-yo’s cage was brighter , and Janet’s darker…Not original att all! And Ne-Yo with that hat,in white MICHAEL JACKSON…(smooth criminal)
    come on people!!!

  32. Anonymous June 27, 2007

    Yes, people borrow, but have you seen the video w/ Kylie? It is EXACT of what Bey did. It ain’t called hatin’ when you tellin’ the truth. Dang..get off of Bey’s nut sach!

    She ripped/burned/copied/ and downloaded Kylie’s stuff. Point, blank, period.

    Now that don’t mean Bey can’t perform in her own right, but it makes it harder for her to be considered the BADDEST chick when she’s BLANTANTLY RIPPING WITHOUT CHANGING IT UP. Come ‘on Bey, we expect more from our ICONS.

  33. Anonymous June 27, 2007

    Beyonce didn’t “steal” anything from kylie. she got her inspiration from the same place kylie’s team got theirs. I saw this robot thing in some old movie.
    anyway I never saw Beyonce stealing anything from other artists, she usually gets her inspirations from other medias such as film and theater and brings it to the stage. I find that very creative. no artist draws ideas out of thin air!

  34. Anonymous June 27, 2007

    1st some artists do grab things from thin air, it’s called their own experiences (not other folks), or imagination

    Chile please w/ the Bey saw a sci fi movie about some Robots…puhleeze.

    SHE STRAIGHT JACKED KYLIE MINOGUE…okay, thank you…say no more!

    CIARA SHUT THE SHOW DOWN. SHE LIMITED HER VOCALS TO SHOW BET THAT THERE IS NOWAY SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN 25? ON THAT DANCERS COUNTDOWN BET HAD. AND NOONE CAN DANCE LIKE CIARA DID LAST NIGHT AND SING EVERY NOTE.

    BEYONCE WAS LIP SINGING. SORRY TO SAY BUT SHE PRERECORDS TRACKS. COMMON SENSE TELLS YOU SHE’S NOT IN SHAPE TO PERFORM W/O BREATHING INTO THE MIKE.

    FOR ME IT’S

    1. CIARA

    3. BEY/KELLY
    4. THE TRIBUTES AND HONORS

    BEYONCE AND KELLY!!! ONE WORD….AMZING!!! Makes me feel for another DC3 album… who knew Solange and Michelle could dance like that….wow..maybe DC3 shud b DC4. Anyways for all u uneducated peeps out ther…Beyonce didnt steal frm no Kylie flippin Minogue…that robot thing is a key scene in the movie ‘Metropolis’. So Kylie herself ‘stole’ it if dats wot ure implying. Google the title it if u don’t no. i thought that was jus…wow…BEST performance by far

  40. Anonymous June 28, 2007

    I AGREE WITH MOST. CIARA SHUT THAT SHOW DOWN. THEY SHOULD HAVE LET HER OPEN

  41. Anonymous June 28, 2007

    Ok first to start with beyonce and kelly killed it withthe help of michele and thier little sis, thats was hot i had chil bups all over me. Beyonce used the robot entrance from klye and klye used it from a movie and some other singer wil use it again and the cycle continues. Why you don’t talk about a cheat ass aaliyah rip off (videos, songs and dance).

    Ne-yo was amazing with a micheal jackson rip off. Ciara (aaliyah #2)was good with out vocals. Was she singing or talking.

    Overall the bet awards was good better than before and mo’nique did a good job….bring her back next year bet

    4.5 star out of five for bet

    yup ciara was the best

  43. Anonymous June 28, 2007

    Like some of the folks on here I can not give Beyonce props for that performance. My 13 year old niece thought it was the fliest thing she had ever saw, but she had not seen Kylie’s performance. I showed her Kylie’s performance on Youtube and she thought Kylie had taken Beyonce’s entrance … I said no baby, Beyonce bit. For most things in life it makes no sense to reinvent the wheel, but in this case Bey should have tried harder.

  44. Anonymous June 28, 2007

    Beyonce sang LIVE, if you’ve ever seen her in concert you’d know she can sing and dance at the same time, stop the hating.

    And Bey never copped Kylie’s outfit, please. She was inspired from the film Metropolis…probably the same film Kylie copied from

    Ciara Killed It. Beyonce’s Was Ok And Kelly Voice Was, No Comment… Good To See Eve And Lil Kim Come Back Out. T.I Was Good Too. A Hype Thing. 50 Cent…*shake my head*, Lawd Help Him, And I Love Ciara Cape. For Yall Who Didnt Know. B.e.t Had A 25 Top Dancers Countdown, And Ciara Was Number 25 , So As U See On Her Cape She Had ” 25?”, She Tellin Them Thats She’s More Betta Then Da 25th Top Dancer.. GO CI CI!!!!!!

  48. Anonymous July 11, 2007

    Ciara was raw and owned it. There is no one who can dance like that and sing. No she is not a great singer but the child can dance. She is a Great Dancer. I can’t use the word great dancer or great singer with just anyone. Who else can jump off the stage doing the chinese splits, not Janet in her prime (great dancer) or Aalyiah. There is a reason Mo imitates Beyonce’s dance moves and not Ciara.

    Some of you people are in denial and I think it’s sad b/c we were all watching the same show 1. Beyonce was lip syncing 2. She took her intro robot idea from Kylie, same as she took Britney’s AMA intro at last Sept at 2006 VMA. 3. The crowd was not into her performance until she announced Kelly and DC + 1 came out. Ciara livened up a dull awards show with her energy. How she was 25 behind Diddy, Prince, & Beyonce is ridiculous.

  49. Anonymous July 12, 2007

    THE MAIN EVENT WAS PATTI VOCALIST AND CIARA ENTERTAINMENT. THEY STOLE THE SHOW. CIARA IS A SHOW OFF AND I LOVE IT. BEYONCE IS LOSING HER CONFIDENCE AND IT STARTING TO SHOW. CIARA IS A FORCED TO BE CHALLENGE. CIARA 4 LIFE

    No the crowd at the top is Ciara fans every year that is why it was so loud. They call her name during every performance and when people come out. Watch Cici performance and you will see how loud it gets
