The 2011 Bet Awards HIGHLIGHTS

The 2011 BET AWARDS premiered last night and in case any of you missed it, 822 has taken the liberty of recapping some of the highlights.

OK, I absolutely love "Mary J". and I've been singing "Anita Baker" songs since I was a kid, thanks to my mom, but honestly "Stephen Hill" and "Debra Lee" that was no way to open the "BET Awards" (IJS). I was worried that I would be disappointed but they pulled it off tremendously.

SN From Adreanne Liggins: "I knew INSTANTLY this was the way to open the SHOW!!! Mary J. Blige is ALWAYS a winner- I had NO DOUBT and LOVED that BELT.  In fact I LOVE the entire jumpsit Mary wore which was designed by Marni Senafonte and a Giuseppe Zanotti belt(Thanks for the Info Style Genius Shemika) as she kicked off the show with a powerhouse peformance of her songs “Mary Jane” and “Real Love” before being joined by the legendary Anita Baker on “Caught Up in the Rapture!!!  AWEEEESOME My Apologies Shemika(Shun)....I HAD TO SAY THAT Girlie...I AGREE The opening WAS  DABOMB.COM-LOL!!!  #ThatIsAll

My absolute favorite had to be "Hollywood Husbands", it was hilarious!! It featured "Kevin Hart, Nelly, Nick Cannon, Bobby Brown, Anthony Anderson, and Jermaine Dupree " (I can smell a new show in the making).

"Kelly Rowland" has twitter heated right now about her "Motivation" performance, she came out as "Trey Songz" was finishing up "Love Faces" and they performed the remix together. I didn't even know Kelly could dance like that, and her hat NEVA came off!! Did anybody notice "Whiz K". freaking his girlfriend "Amber Rose" as the performance was going on?

Then there was the tribute to "Patti Labelle" as she received the "Lifetime achievement award", performed by "Cee-Lo, Marsha Ambrosius, and Shirley Cesar". Cee-Lo in Patti's own words "scared me" (Laughs). Cee-Lo did a great job adding comedy to the performance and the vocals were also great, but Marsha Ambrosius rendition of "If only you knew" had Patti on her feet and sent chills down my spine, face it, its next to impossible to compare to the great Patti Labelle, but these artist did her proud. Patti later referred to Marsha as a "bad heifer".

Another memorable performance favorite was "Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, and Rick Ross". Alicia hit the stage and brought out Bruno, and Ross to perform variations of "A woman's worth", and "Maybach Music".

"Lil Wayne" with his American flag boxers!! The list goes on and on......

Chris Brown finished the night with 4 awards, including the one that was mistakenly given to his ex "Rhianna" in which "Drake" awkwardly accepted. It seems as though there was some type of technical mishap. "Stephen Hill" accredits the mistake to his own "Human Error". When the Bet and "Nicki Minaj's" biggest fan "Tiffany" announced the "Viewers Choice Award" winner as "Chris Brown" Look at me now, then said "No, sorry, it's Rhianna and Drake Whats my name", I know that girl was humiliated. Every fan dreams of being on a stage with celebrities on live TV, and to make such a mistake is mind blowing!! Needless to say Tiffany is mad and used Twitter to express just how annoyed she is.

Bawling backstage. They totally f*cked me up. The tablet f*ckin said CHRIS BROWN….the TELEPROMPTER said Rhianna. What the F*CK?????? Goin home.

So BET did that on purpose. Oh. I feel better.

Look b*tches….Im not SLOW. lol They did the sh*t on PURPOSE. F*cked up right? *shrug* smh

The bet awards will air again on Tuesday June 28th @ 7p/6C
