BET Award 2010: Mixing the Old w/ The NEW
So this years awards I thought was pretty good! To be honest I never really have watched the awards the day that it actually airs because it comes on for umpteen times after it airs.
I like the way BET mixes the old and new performers together, which is always a treat for me since I love love love "old school" music! And no I'm not talking about stuff that came out 15 years ago. Old school to me is music that came out before I was born or when I was a little little girl in the '80's. So seeing acts like Debarge peroform this year was a treat as well as Monica singing her song "Everything to me" which is a sampled from the Denise Williams song "Silly".
Now for the new...
I am a huge huge Trey Songz fan, so seeing him win for best new male artist was great! And not to mension mama "Songz", Trey's mom looks fabulous! I thought that was his date? Did anyone else? Also I loved Jezzy's performance with hot new artist Drake. Even though Drake really shouldn't be considered a new artist anymore since he's been on everyone's song from Mary J. to Trey Songz.
For the surprising moments...
#1 Chris Brown surprised the heck out of me coming out dancing like MJ and crying on stage.
#2 Ms. Nia Long and Larenz Tate reciting the poem from the movie "Love Jones" they performed in was a bit magical...don't you say.
#3 Kanye and the red suite....nuf said!!! LOL
