  2. Molly June 3, 2014

    Weak can we get a performance from Beyonce Rihanna Ciara or even Kelly Rowland?

    • Pretty lala June 3, 2014

      Ciara just gave birth, why would she be performing? o.O

      • Molly June 3, 2014

        I know but still i would love it if she did lol i need some excitement at this award show.

  3. Stephy June 3, 2014

    Cool, I can’t wait to see Usher!

  4. Pretty lala June 3, 2014

    BET is always booking Jennifer Hudson’s boring loud ass. No one wants to see her. Ushers new song is a dry flop. Can we get Sevyn, Tamar, Fantasia, Jhene, CB, Kendrick. You know, people who actually had hits last year???

    • truth June 3, 2014

      I wanna c JHud cause i wanna c her sing WIO. I live that song. I think they’ve found the perfect sound for hee. U don’t like Walk It Out? Its really a steller song

  5. Molly June 3, 2014

    Jennifer Hudson does nothing for my soul.

    • Pretty lala June 3, 2014

      She’s so boring!!!!! Uggghhhhhh

      • Molly June 3, 2014


    • Stephy June 3, 2014

      I must agree! She has a powerful voice but nothings there… Sadly…

      • Molly June 3, 2014


  6. Skyfall June 3, 2014

    Ariana Grande
    K. Mooseshelle
    & Rihanna

  7. oneway June 3, 2014

    YAWN and hiss hiss boo….. I am so tired of hearing and seeing the same people all the damn time! Wait has Jennifer Hudson released music I have yet to hear? Drake really is he still around? Oh God not another rendition of “Because I’m HAPPYEEEEEE”. Oh gag me with a spoon

  8. MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

    A Jazmin Suvellin performance would slay lives, “In Love With Another Man” those runs and belts would end peoples lives.

  9. coolness June 3, 2014

    Only here for Usher tbh. Jennifer is talented but does nothing for me. I agree that Jhene, Sevyn and Beyonce (PLEASE!) should be given a chance to show out. Oh well, we’ll see what happens.

  10. MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

    Ciara was great last year.

    I been saying Ciara, Lady Gaga, BEYONCE are the performers of this generation. No one tops them @ this point.

    Ciara may not be very successful but you can’t take her stage power and presence. I’ve been looking @ her performances @ youtube, she’s even way better than most successful popstars live.

    • Molly June 3, 2014


      • MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

        I hope she can smash again, I been rooting for her since ‘Goodies’
        “1,2 step, Like You” were my jams.

      • Molly June 3, 2014

        same here she has all the potential in the world.

      • coolness June 3, 2014

        Hey Molly what’s your fav Ciara performance at the BET Awards? Mine’s the 2007 one. She did that!

      • Molly June 3, 2014

        Mine was last year she slayed the body party/im out performance… 2007 performance was everything aswell.

    • coolness June 3, 2014

      Yes to your comment! I think Ciara’s lack of success in recent years have caused people to have this warped view on her talent. She’s nobody’s vocalist (I like her voice though) and the same goes for Britney, Janet & Madonna but they were incredibly successful so there’s this filter when people look at them. She’s really grown as a performer because her stage presence is fire compared to what it was a few years ago. As a fan and someone who is also objective, I can honestly say she can hang with the biggest and best among the Pop girls.

      • MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

        What I love about her is that she has always been urban never followed trends even when RnB was down Cici stayed with it now that’s a real artist, I respect the person she is, I respect her music and I really love her personality she’s so positive and very pretty. I know her “Velvet Rope” era is coming soon. She has matured and has mastered the art of Performing. I just wish her all the best

  11. MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

    Usher I might watch your performance. We need more performers tho BET your list is dry.

    • coolness June 3, 2014

      The set list so far is so meh. I would like to see Chris perform but homeboy needs to rest. I doubt he’s physically and emotionally ready to get back into the groove of getting back into music.

  12. did ya say bieber,gaga,miley,beyonce,one direction,rita ora or austin mahone…(eminems side b****) June 3, 2014

    I be wantin Lil Wayne to f*** me so damn bad,i wanna explore him like the internet…he is sooo hot n**** be gettin me heart

    • MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

      Lmao you’re crazy yoh.

  13. kk June 3, 2014

    BET performances always dry in a way. Always see the same people over n over for example gospel performances the same people. I think they should give Michelle Williams a chance since well she has a single with her sisters n also see them doin their solos.

  14. did ya say bieber,gaga,miley,beyonce,one direction,rita ora or austin mahone…(eminems side b****) June 3, 2014

    no but if weezy be takin his shirt off i be definetly watchin,weezy be so hottt i aint even be laughin…i wanna f*** him it aint be phunny…lil tun makes my p**** wet

  15. Minaj21 June 3, 2014

    Gosh this is going to be one boring ass show. And why isn’t nicki going to perform there? I hope she perform she needs to promot her single.

    • MariahIsMusic1 June 3, 2014

      Yeah, I love Nicki’s “Beez In The Trap” performance she was fire. I like urban/ratchet nicki not the soft balladly nicki.

  16. Beygency June 3, 2014

    They gotta do better or I’m not watching, give me some Beyoncé.. SOMEONE. I won’t watch J.Hud scream at me I’m good

  17. musiclover June 3, 2014

    beyonce and jayz is not gonna be at this show i already feel like they are about to end their marriage so they keeping there appearances lowkey until the tour. since ciara is on maternity leave so she cant perform and even tho i dont like her she slayed the f*** outta that stage last year. BET always snubs RiRi so shes not gonna be there either and shes more pop than RnB. kanye wont show up unless his business partner is there. nobody that matters is gonna perform or show up all we can do is wait for a god to save this show. not here for Jhud’s loud vocals i swear she always sound like she singing “and im telliing you”

  18. Blacksista June 3, 2014

    Where is Toni and Babyface?
    K. Michelle?
    The Worst girl?
    I’m The Man guy?

  19. Jhene Aiko Stan June 3, 2014

    I’m down for Drake and Pharrell performing but no one wants to see J-Hud, Lil Wayne, or Usher perform. They perform damn near every year. There are alot of fresh faces in black/urban music that have broken through like K. Michelle, Tamar, Sevyn, August, and my girl Jhene. BET needs to be the ones who support them.

    • coolness June 3, 2014

      I agree but they haven’t announced the full set list so maybe Jhene et al will get a chance to perform 🙂 And yeah, the list so far is a bore so far. Usher puts on a great show though.

  20. RihIcon June 3, 2014

    Can we get rihanna or bey atleast? Damn.. These awards have been boring as f*** lately

  21. RihIcon June 3, 2014

    Mariah should perform heavenly

  22. Foxx June 3, 2014

    So far Usher is the only that will give a promising and good performance. I’ll definitely watch Pharrell, but he’s never really been a performer. I really hope Usher and Pharrell do something together at the show. That could be a classic.

  23. Theman June 3, 2014

    MC could throw down with “Thirsty” !!

  24. Brian310 June 3, 2014

    I don’t see why that won’t allow new faces to shine, performers should be
    Jhene aiko
    Michelle for gospel
    Jazmine Sullivan instead of jhud
    Future and some new rappers
    Plus some vets like Bey, Usher is cool, Nick would be fine.

    • FutureCIARA June 3, 2014


  25. FutureCIARA June 3, 2014


    Announce when someone exciting will be there!

    Sucks for them they have to outdo themselves every year, but this aint cuttin it!

  26. FutureCIARA June 3, 2014

    Im here for Usher slayage, but BET awards have been equated to a silly Summer Jam concert… Ciara is the best thats stepped on that stage in YEARS as far as performers go

  27. FutureCIARA June 3, 2014

    All they need is a show full of faves!!!

    the stans would STAN down!!!!!!!!!

  28. DIGGER BEY June 3, 2014

    **Stares hard @ the names**Lmfao Byeeeeee BET. The only person u all should’ve mention was Usher.

  29. RihIcon June 3, 2014

    Nicki should be promoting pills & potions

  30. Navy Nick June 3, 2014

    USHER WILL SLAY – I am going to need BEYONCE & NICKI added to this list child!! I wouldn’t mind IGGY too..hehe

  31. Lmfao_Hoe June 3, 2014

    Mariah needs to get the hell up and perform the s*** outta ” You don’t know what to do / Meteorite / Make It Look Good or Cry. If she wants to fast forward them sells and give lives to the Lambs !!

  32. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 3, 2014

    This looks boring as hell, I rather watch the recylced tour than this potential mess.

    “K. Mooselle” LMFAO. I’ve just told my friend how that b**** looked like Bullewinkle.

  33. Pettyoncé June 3, 2014

    Beyonce n****!!!!!! please can we get some promo ??

  34. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) June 3, 2014

    Where’s Syven Streeter, Jhene Aiko, Mila J, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Iggy, YG, Tamar,Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Jazmin Sullvian and K. Michelle? Ugh, I guess the Bet awards will never completely get it right. Oh well. I’m cool with Usher and Pharrell performing but Jennifer Hudson, oh god no.

  35. flychick86 June 4, 2014

    Wow! Had a feeling Jenny Kate (Jennifer) would perform!
