This year marked 15 years of celebrating black excellence. The 2015 BET Awards was a show you shouldn’t have missed! With action packed performances that literally had our TV’s shaking, we were soon reminded why Black Entertainment Television’s award show is one we wait all year for. Last night the acceptance speeches were almost as exciting as the performances. Omarion, Chris Brown, Tyga, The Weeknd and many more graced the stage last night but nothing compared to the Smokey Robinson and Janet Jackson Tributes and the memory filled performance from Bad Boy.
Tinashe, Jason Derulo, and Ciara showed off their best dance moves in a tribute to the soon to be touring best performer alive, Janet Jackson. Her life’s work definitely made her deserving of The Ultimate Icon award and tribute.
Nothing compared to the energy packed performance from Bad Boy marking 20 years of success from Sean “Diddy” Combs. He brought his artist like Ma$e, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, 112, and a some new flavor from French Montana. Slip ups (pun intended) did not keep this amazing mogul from showing the world what hits he made. This was also a comparative moment for Kiyah Wright because 20 years ago “Puffy” opened the first door for her to walk into celebrity styling.
Everyone definitely brought the funny including Laverne Cox and Gabrielle Union who did a twinsie skit. Of course Gabrielle’s hair was done by none other that Kiyah Wright.
It is safe to say that the 3 and half hour show was definitely worth every minute!!
