2012 BET AWARDS RECAP & PERFORMANCES


 

Last night, Los Angeles was host to the 2012 BET Awards and as always, it provided many things worth talking about. The show opened up with a monstrous performance from Kanye West and the rest of the G.O.O.D Music family with a little help from 2 Chainz in which "Mercy", "Cold", and a sneak peek at a new song being released soon titled "New God Flow" were performed. Afterwards, host Samuel L. Jackson kept the night rolling in hilarious fashion as he was joined onstage by Spike Lee for their own rendition of "... Paris". BET's censor crew worked overtime last night as they did their best at bleeping out parts of performances, but while some words went let go, most verses went unheard, most of which were in Maybach Music Group's set. The show also had iconic couple Jay-Z and Beyonce in a household battle for 'Video Of The Year' in which Jay and Kanye took home for 'Otis' and the couple was seen playfully joking with each other. Jay even took a moment to interrupt Kanye during his speech to make light of Kanye's infamous moment with Taylor Swift. The night then saw performances from Usher, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Frankie Beverly featuring Maze receiving the 'Lifetime Achievement Award', and even D'Angelo returned for his first performance in years. The show took a different tone as Whitney Houston was remembered in a tearful, but outstanding tribute featuring Mariah CareyMonicaBrandyChaka KhanGary Houston, and highlighted by a performance from Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston.
