ANYWAY THE PRE SHOW IS TERRIBLE ALL AROUND..
BEYONCE B**** U BETTER WORK!!!!

Usher’s performance is gunna kick-ass.
THE J HUDSON VIDEO IS SOOOOOOO CORNY!!!!!!!
BOOOOOOOOO GET OFF THE STAGE!!!
j hud commercial was gud
I liked the J Hud vid it was cute, and Im starting to like the song
Jennifer’s video was good! I’m impressed. Is she performing tonight? Wikipedia says so, although I know they’re not the most reliable source.
Im likin Jen. Hudson’s swagger in her video. She loked great in it too. At first I wasn’t feelin the song, I mean it was aight…but now I am really liking it.
I liked Jennifer’s video
Where the hell was Beyonce and Lil Weezie???!!!!?????!!!??? WTF???!!!!!
Have ya’ll checked out that Lollipop remix by Wayne??!! Waynedastartv, check it out on youtube or at http://www.myspace.com/waynereaves
That junk is toooo damn hot!!!!
Usher needs to step his lipsynching game up..PRONTO!
I agree Ashley. It was really bad. Can you at least try to move your mouth with the words??
oops… that usher performance was a hot beer-belly mess.. smh…
this shitt issss whackkkkkkkkkkkk…… =[ …….im not watching it no more….the opening act is supposed to be amazingg…that was just ok…if that was just ok then imagine wat the rest of the show is going to be like. BOO!!
After Usher’s performance, I have hope that it can only go up from here
Chris Brown winning was garbage should have been Neyo or Trey even J-Holiday. BIG BOO so far for the awards!
Usher’s performance was a disappointment, and it wasn’t because of no Beyonce or Lil Wayne there with him.
His performances recently have left me underwhelmed seriously.
Ah well, I still love him!
kanye w/ the damn vocoder voice is killing me!! i want to feel him, but it’s hard with that distraction.
Was Michelle Williams there? if so, what she wearing? did she promote her album?
^^^no michelle aint there…nobody good is there…its the wackest best awards ever
So…today (Monday) I had the chance to see a few of the dress rehearsals for the BET Awards tomorrow. Some good, some surprises, and some disappointments.
First up was the tribute performances to Al Green. Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott (I was bummed cause she couldn’t make the rehearsal), and Maxwell will all sing classic Al Green songs…Maxwell was off the chain. Then Al Green came out and sang Let’s Stay Together and Love and Happiness…he smashed it, it’s crazy because it was a young crowd, but he got everyone hyped!
Next, T Pain had his time. I wasn’t expecting much from him, but surprisingly, his set was pretty entertaining. He has a big circus theme with girls dancing on stilts, acrobats, a midget fire breather…his performance was crazy!! It was coo to see it live, but i’m not sure how it will translate to TV. He had a bunch of special guest including; Ludacris, Big Boi, DJ Kaled, Ric Ross, and Flo Rida.
Rihanna was next and everyone was pretty hungry by now. It didn’t help that she only did TAB and took the longest amount of stage time, and only ran her song twice. No one was feeling it…hopefully she’s saving the hottness for the actual show. Oh and she had the nerve to have a closed set where no one was allowed in or out, so this meant that our lunch was sitting outside of the auditorium getting cold! One girl even said that she wished LeToya Luckett was performing instead…I got hella juiced!!! lol
Alicia did her thing. She started of with Superwoman and then moved into TLA. Then came the big surprises! She assembled all together on stage, 3 of the biggest girl groups of the 90’s and sang their hits with them. SWV – Weak; En Vouge – Hold On; and TLC – Waterfalls. This is gonna be big, it was HOTT!!!
Last we were SUPPOSED to see Usher’s set, but his ass kicked us all out.
It was a looong day, but I’m glad I went. It was cool seeing all these acts rehearse and prepare for the show.
btw…Sunday they had the other half of the acts prepare so I didn’t get to see any of the other performers like Lil Wayne, Lil Kim, etc…
I personally have a problem that BET constantly awards the same ppl year after year. Missy did not deserve the Female Hip Hop Artist award. She’s had one song this year. Come on now. Give it to Lil Mama or Trina. Let someone else have a chance to win.
I never thought I would see the day that Ne-yo SMASHES Usher with his performance game. Incredible. Gotta loves Jabba.
Where the hell is Dream?? I know he didn’t have anything else better to do. I hate when people do not show up to award shows. It’s disrespectful.
WHAT?!?!?!?!??!? Neyo and Jabbawockeez!!!! Bout time someoe decided to give a great performance!!
the only performance that has been good has been ne-yo’s. but the show has been doodoo…nobody is even there u receive their awards
HAHA told yall BeYAWNce wan’t performing…!!
LIL KIM LOOKED F****** AMAZING,SHE BOUGHT THE HYPE TO KEYSHIA COLE PERFORMANCE
DAMM! IT WOULD BE NICE IF THE AWARD RECIPIENTS WERE THERE TO GET THEIR DANG AWARDS…WHAT A FRIGGIN MESS…WELL AT LEAST CHRIS BROWN WAS THERE…LOL BUT THEY NEED TO GIVE THE AWARD TO ONE OF THE POOR FOLKS THAT IS THERE
NEYO WAS SOOO MUCH BETTER THAN USH MAYBE IF B WAS THERE IT WOULDA HELPED…I MISS HER SHE’S BEEN ON THE PAST 2 SHOWS…
AND KEYSHIA IS GHETTO AS HELL…LOL I CAN SAY THAT CUZ I AM FROM THE HOOD…BUT SHE WAS CUTE AND KIM WAS TOO…
ALICIA ROCKED IT AND SWV HELP IT OUT…I GET SOOOO WEAK!!
DL IS A CRAZY MUTHA SHE KINDA CUTE THOUGH
So far I am very dissapointed with the show. Usher’s performance was hot but I wish he would have brung out beyonce and lil Wayne. The stage seems like it’s too small. Keyshia Cole always has a problem singing live. Neyo thinks he is Prince. Jeezy was wack. So far Alicia Keys had the best performance. I hope Nelly performs with Ciara. Ciara’s energy is the only thing that can save this show
Alicia did her thing. She started of with Superwoman and then moved into TLA.
LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE
T BOZ SHOULDA STAYED HOME WITH THAT VOICE…SHE SOUNDED WORSE THAN KEYSHIA
They better had gave that award to kanye or he would have thrown a bytch fit
I said the same damn thing about t-boz’s voice
she sounded a hot mess
BORING BORING BORING
SO WHO’S PERFORMANCE WAS THE BEST SO FAR?? I KNOW IT’S NOT REALLY HARD TO CHOOSE…
Alicia Keys was amazing. It’s kind of emotional seeing all these groups I grew up listening to. She killed it. Everybody was incredible.
T PAIN AND THAT BIG OLE KUNTRY HAT…
TOO MUCH VOCODER CRAP FOR ONE SHOW…
FLO RIDER IS SO FINE AND I LOVE HIS RECEEDING HAIRLINE!!
I LIKED NE-YO’S PERFORMANCE…HE SHOULDA GOT NEKKID
I THINK I SHOULD STOP RECORDING THIS MESS ALREADY!
LUDACRIS LOOKS SO YUMMY
It’s funny because I don’t remember ever seeing that f***** video. I saw all the other ones time and time again…but damn….WTF?!?!?!?
Publish Your Comment PIMP C
Though UGK were deserving no doubt, Ashanti hands down had a video that showed that she still had somethin still left in her and represented for all the ladies.

wow so far chris brown and kanye were the only present winners…not even gonna comment on kanye’s win, ugh, BET’S discrimination is so ugh..alicia killed it…Usher i’m highly upset and as my friend always says im gonna send him a bomb letter cuz that was terrible after being in the game 10 plus years u think he’d learn to adapt to singing live. all other performances were terrible. keyshia looked lost cuz missy bailed out and this coming from a big fan of keyshia’s. ne-yo i’ll give credit where it’s due u did good boo. who else performed? oh t-pained. was that…can we call that a performance? idk but that was a hot mess. the vocals are a mess they need to fix the technical problems quick. marvin sapp just brought me thru some things. preach bro. d.l. wat the hell? ur corny….im done venting…sorry yall i had to get this off my chest cuz the BET awards get worse and worse every year and i continue to watch.

Al did his thang considering the fact that he about 70
Whoever said before that they are getting sick of MC Lyte’s voice… Yeah, I’m gonna have to co-sign w/ that one.
Rhianna has been working on her vocals
peep Chris Brown singing along cute!
that’s rite lil weezy get it…oh he brought da whole fam…cute cute
I hate Debra Lee’s choice of dresses each year she needs to dress and act more age appropriate!
Also why does she seems so nervous when she speaks publicly all the time.
rihanna needs to sit down that perf. was so boring it lacked energy lets hope nelly and lil wayne step up this show…i hope keyshia wins for best female
Queen Latifah looks amazing!! She’s come a long way since Cleo. Sorry, I was watching Set It Off the other day!!
please help me get Beyonce to do a Blues/Soul Album by signing this petition today!!!….http://www.petitiononline.com/beesoulp/petition.html …. i know you agree that beyonce needs to do this kind of music and the petition might sound corney but if ENOUGH people sign we could make beyonce listen. please sign. much love
I WOULD LIKE HOT GRITS OFF OF NELLY’S BODY

this was the most stupid bet awards ever…didnt no one bring it not even lil wayne that was a normal perf…the only highlight was alicia keys and chris brown and ciara…otherwise FU** BET!!!!! THEY R LAME cant wait til the mtv vmas
I really didn’t think the show was that bad. I actually thought it was better than good. I thought D.L. Hughley was funny. This is coming from someone who is not a fan of his, and has very low expectations for him. Maybe my expectations were so low that he easily surpassed them.
The highlights were:
Neyo’s performance (Jabbawockez)
Chris Brown (& Ciara)
Alicia Keys & guests
Al Green w/ everybody in the crowd having a good time singing along to the words.
Overall, I thought it was hot. I wasn’t mad at Keyshia and Kim either.
I F***** LUV BET….I FIGURED I’D SAY IT CUZ U LAMEZ LIKE SAYIN YOU DONT……AND WHEN IN THE EXISTENCE OF THE BET AWARDS HAS THE VMA’S BEEN BETTER…FUC OUTTA HERE…..LAME….WITH THAT SAID TLC WAS WACK..EN VOGUE WAS GOOD..STILL LOOKIN GOOD…KIM WAS A BEAST SHE WAS KNOWN 2 B…JEEZY DID HIM..YE DID HIM..WAYNE DID WHAT HE DOES..BUT THATS ABOUT IT…CIARA BRINGIN THAT CRUNK S*** BACK IZ STARTIN 2 B A GOOD LOOK CUZ THEM SOFT ASS TECHNO…OR SLOW WACK ASS SAME MELODY NEYO ASS BEATS…AINT CUTTIN IT…..J HUD LOOKED GOOD…IT LOOK LIKE SHE READY 4 THA GAME…..DL HUGHLEY WAS BETTA THAN EXPECTED..IT WAS AVERAGE BUT STILL BETTA THAN YO RUN OF THE MILL…..LAME ASS EUROPEAN INFLUENCED SHOWS.IF BET COULD CAPTURE MTV’S CINEMATOGRAPHY THEY WOULD B ON 2 SUMTHIN’..I F***** LUV BLK PEOPLE…………….
Overall, I liked the show..
Dissapointed in Usher’s performance.. I was expecting to be wowed.
Keyshia was ok I guess.. Lil Kim was a hot mess.
TPain and Kanye were good.
NeYo was on point. Loved it!
Alicia Keys w/ SWV, EnVogue, and TLC was amazing! My favorite performance.
Chris Brown & Ciara were great.
Al Green took me back.
Queen Latifah looked great.
Rihanna performance was kinda boring.
Lil Wayne was great.
Marvin Sapp was uplifting.
Nelly was fine as hell.. Ciara looked good.. JD looked crazy. Fergie looked pregnant.
