Respect This Fresh: R.T.F. 2010 BET AWARDS RECAP
Here’s a quick recap on some of the highlights of the 2010 BET Awards from Jenay…feel free to leave your thoughts!
This year’s BET Awards was one of the best awards shows theyhave had in a long time. the performances were thought out and it looked like therewere no problems behind the scenes. there were many surprises like the comebackof El Debarge and a beautiful and moving tribute to MJ by Chris Brown.
KanyeWest’s performance of his single ‘Power’ was a great start to a good night.even though Queen Latifah was trying to be funny and wasn’t getting theresponse she was looking for, she still didn’t get out of hand. as far as the performancesof the night, Usher, Drake, Diddy, Alicia Keys and Eminem all did their thing.Alicia Keys did her performance with a baby bump and sang her heart out on a pianofor her tribute to Prince!
B.O.B. and Keyshia Cole performed ‘Airplanes’…we all areaware that the original features Haley from Paramore singing the hook. to me,Keyshia should have left that to Hale, but hey…it was an ok try.
Seeing JohnLegend gets presented with the Humanitarian Award and the Life Time AchievementAward to Prince was very well overdue. I somewhat don’t feel the performancedid Prince any justice, but I loved how hype Janelle Monae and Alicia Keys got,and definitely gotta give props to Esperanza Spalding; her voice sounded great. at the end of the tribute you had, PattiLabelle kicking off her shoes and out of breath and after all that I still feltthe song was put to justice. The most moving part of the night was Chris Browns tributeto the late, great Michael Jackson where he danced his ass off back into theheart of many people. his heart felt performance had him struggling finishingthe song ‘Man in the Mirror’ and you could tell he lost his hero — the one helooked up to.
El Debarge came out singing exactly just how he once sang back inthe day. I know every mother in America was going crazy, because my mom wasscreaming like Trey Songz took her shirt off or something. I can’t forget the tribute to Teddy Pendergrass by Tyrese;he did his thing as he sang tunes from the late Teddy Pendergrass. the show wasclosed out with multiple artists like Ludacris and DJ Khaled with T-pain rightbehind.
The show went smoothly, but there were a few obvious fails. Especiallyduring Diddy’s performance with Dirty Money when there was a big cloud of smokein the middle of the stage blocking Diddy and Nicki when they performed. Otherthan that the show was better than decent and was worth the watch. if you missed it you can always catch it onthe re-run…
