    Mary has paid her dues and definitely earned this award congratulations Queen!!!

      Toni Braxton DESERVES THIS BEFORE MARY. I love me some Mary but Toni deserves this before her. Same goes for Mariah.

      • Elias June 13, 2019

        First of all, no one has been thinking of toni since 2001. Second, Mariah will probably never get it due to how light she it. 3 Mary has set an Oscar record and her tour was on the top 200 hundred list of best tours last year. Where has Toni been?

  4. Detruth June 12, 2019

    She definitely deserves this. 30 years in the game! Not many can reach that longevity and still be popular.

    • Caleb June 12, 2019

      Hell yea. Mary is an artist with true longevity.

  5. Caleb June 12, 2019

    IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME. I will be tuning in for Mary’s segment, and Mary’s segment only. Let’s just pray they get the tribute right, this is BET after all.

  11. _flowslikewater93 June 12, 2019

    Yessss! Here for it. Long time overdo!! Hope Megan performs too, we need more female rap representation ??

  12. Danyboo June 12, 2019

    Toni Braxton should go before mjb or Mariah Carey

    • MCXRiri ?? June 12, 2019

      Mariah really deserves it as well but this is MJB moment daahling. She definitely hasn’t gotten half of the flowers she deserves. She came with them HITS.Those hearkbreak songs, survival, pain, grown s*** even tho we were small ????? I always had her played in my house. The Queen. We love you. I can’t wait to support her on BET. ??

    • Jasmine June 13, 2019

      I agree but Mariah has technically gotten BET Awards already. Toni DESERVES this before Mary 100 percent! Toni is always very disrespected at these black awards shows lately. For example, at this years NAACP AWARDS they totally disrespected her. I’m glad she did NOT attend that disrespect and ghettoness. How do you play ‘You’re Making Me High’ when ‘Long As I Live’ won like they the same damn song?

      • Danyboo June 13, 2019

        Mjb deserves her flowers but I remember she won this award the very first bet awards then it was Whitney Houston… but my b**** lil Richard is still alive and no one ever shows him his just due because he’s flamboyant and old but yea get Faith Evans/ keyshia Cole/ Jasmine Sullivan/ Ashanti to do MJB tribute!!! Bring up Diddy to present her with her award and Missy Elliot to hype it up!!

    • Dc June 13, 2019

      Was Toni Braxton nominated for Oscar’s ?

  13. Maxx June 12, 2019

    This will be a great tribute! Go MJB!

  16. I hate blaccck n whyte June 13, 2019

    Great, they need to continue to give Whitney Houston her honor even after death,
