      Toni Braxton sounded HORRIBLE. What happen to her voice. she reached for notes but nothing came.

      Usher’s voice is so underrated, his voice was smooth as silk.

        Try again horrible and Toni are not in the same sentence. I am happy videos are always around to proved you lying. She sang exactly how she wanted, nothing to prove been there done that and still doing. She was not reaching for no note….

      Let me say a few words about Slaytasia and her performance for Miss Patti…Slaytasia walked out looking stunning…hair done just right…makeup done just right…just beautiful…and then proceeded to SLAY MY WHOLE LIFE…my wig glue wasn’t ready for that level of slayage…I mean damn, I just bought me a new wig (Aretha snatched the other one at the Kennedy Center Honors) and now it’s gone lol 🙂

    LMAO Traci stay doing her own dance moves and Towanda is always dancing 10x faster than everyone else. Hashtag #DooWopPop!

    Lord hammercy. These past few black awards shows tribute have given me so much abundant LIFE!!! Fantasia, like Whitney, like Patti, you are a once in a lifetime God given talent. I love her so much. Usherrrrrr!!!! The King of R&B! Still got that butterscotch ass voice and killing the stage with no theatrics. Take note Chris. Jazmine!!!!! Nuff said. Toni, one of my favorite all time divas. But I need some real background singers now. Your sisters lip syncing and Towanda’s over dramatic and uncoordinated head whips are dated and played out, lol.

    All in all. I appreciate real old school black R&B getting the recognition it’s been getting lately. That was my childhood.

    • Annalise March 15, 2016

      Chanté Moore, Sparkle and one of the ladies from En Vogue used to do background for Toni, but she gave her sisters the opportunity to do it again. I think respectfully unless they are performing together as ‘The Braxtons’ then they she stop doing background since it’s backward movement from the careers they want to launch.

        I agree. “Counterproductive” is the perfect word. Hence why you don’t see Tamar doo-wop pop popping anymore.

  4. Truth(Nicki WHACK and Adele FAT…WHET!!) March 15, 2016

    Fanny is EVERYTHING honey!!

    Tasia! Tasia! Tasia! I love her. She is everybody’s friend after that performance! One of the best vocalists in the game! She needs to hurry up with that new CD. Toni is 48 and still looks like she’s 28. What a catalogue of hits she has, and she didn’t even perform some of her hits like You’re Makin Me High, Just Be A Man About It, and I Love Me Some Him. Greatness! She should be the next recipient of some type of musical tribute. Shout out to Traci, Towanda, and Trina, the doo wop pop girls, lol! Usher sounded really good. He is also due for some type of tribute. 20 + years in the game and he is still going strong. Ledisi is a vocal gawd and did Natalie justice last night with her musical tribute to her. Shout out to Jazmine, Raheem and the Maurice White tribute! I thoroughly enjoyed the BET Honors. The perfect mix of class and entertainment, and Arsenio is still a fool!

      Usher was actually among the BET Honorees for last year’s show. He was paid tribute by Trey Songz who gave a rendition of Nice & Slow. I would tell you to look that up but I’m sure you are familiar with Trey’s tribute to Prince at the 2010 BET Awards so yeah… 🙂

      • Truth(Nicki WHACK and Adele FAT…WHET!!) March 15, 2016

        Yeap… ah mess honey

  6. Theman March 15, 2016

    Usher is amazingly talented, great voice.. Fantasia is next level. Ledisi is incredible. Babyface is brilliant. Toni is beautiful & gifted. This show was full of AMAZING TALENT. They all deserve a lot more recognition.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen March 15, 2016

      Yes!!! Everything you wrote!!! 🙂

  7. Gee March 15, 2016

    Usher voice gets better with age. Fanny, Jazmine and Ledisi are some sanging women. Toni is definitely a true diva. Traci, Towanda, and Trina are the true definition of do wop pop chicks. Overall B.E.T. Honors was another great award showing brought to you by the folks at B.E.T.

  8. Beyonce wins March 15, 2016

    Miss Fantasia, my god there is no one like her, she is phenomenal, I can’t wait till her concert

  9. Yep! March 15, 2016

    FANTASIA…. I don’t even need to say anything else because her talent speaks for itself. I just hope the producers of the BET Awards have already booked her to open/close this year’s show with HER MUSIC!!

    Tributes are nice but fantasia has good music and she should be able to perform her stuff. In the 12 YEARS she’s been in the game, Fantasia has NEVER not given us a outstanding performance… It’s about time we start treating Fanny like the top tier performer she is.

  10. Coolness March 15, 2016

    I love my Toni but she wasn’t really singing full out and Traci and Towanda’s awkward dancing providing for LOLs. Fantasia, Ledisi and Jazmine Sullivan snatched me with their good old-fashioned SANGING! Pharrell has said on more than one occasion that Usher is known to be dynamic performer but he doesn’t get enough credit for being a talented vocalist. If voices, were fabric, his would be silk. I love the way h Not to mention, his charismatic stage presence is everything. All in all, it was a great show and I love seeing my people come togther to celebrate hard work, talent and achievements.

  11. Authentic March 15, 2016

    If Usher wasn’t a known h**. I would try to cuff his ass??? Baby that man is Devine. tamica is dumb af…

  12. jec2 March 15, 2016

    OMG! WHY IS TONI LIP SYNCHING?! She is usually flawless live. Class act either way.

    • Kay for Toni braxton March 15, 2016

      How can u call that lip synching she sang live just with the aid of technology for the places she needed to have eco effect for stage performance

  13. Arx March 15, 2016

    I’m sorry but Ledisi’s voice is annoying as f##k. Way too high for my liking. Fantasia on the other hand slayed my life.

  14. Royalkev March 15, 2016

    Wow! I sometimes forget how unbelievable for the R&B world Toni and Usher were! They’re both one of the few artists who’s catalog is 99% real R&B music (prior to Usher’s 2012 ‘Looking For Myself’ album, of course) and still managed to be very mainstream. As far as I’m concerned both displayed(during their sets)exactly why they’ve made it so big!

  15. afdfdf March 15, 2016

    let me just say this nobody i mean nobody can touch fantasia in this game

  16. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 15, 2016
