Lauryn Hill looked frail - out of breath, just sounding horrible. I'm reminded once again how Pras is my favorite of that group, the back bone, keeping things together.

Can I back up a second here?

Was I the only one who thought Toni Braxton looked better then ever but her stage presence was a little over the top? I don't know it was like she had ADD while saluting Mrs. Knight. She also needs to go back to the short hair.

Alicia Keys looked nice in long flowing locks a bit more feminine.

I miss music and performers who can light up a stage. I just don't see and feel it like I use to. Is it me?

Those rap acts that are 20 strong should be outlawed. I don't know how anyone pays to go to most rap shows.

I saw the Roots but they are a band....a very good band...and they get very little play which is bad. :(

Rapper Kanye West leads no-shows at BET Awards

By Dean GoodmanWed Jun 29, 4:21 AM ET



Rapper Kanye West was the only multiple winner at the BET Awards on Tuesday, but did not turn up to accept his two prizes at the fifth annual celebration of black music and sports, and most of the other honorees also were no-shows.

West won the male hip-hop and video of the year categories, and would have enjoyed a clean sweep if fellow absentee Donnie McClurkin had not beaten him for best gospel artist.

Other no-shows included Usher (male R&B), Jamie Foxx (actor), Regina King (actress), Shaquille O'Neal (male athlete), and Serena Williams (female athlete). Also missing was actor Denzel Washington who, with his wife Pauletta, was given a humanitarian award.

Despite rumors of a surprise appearance, Michael Jackson did not turn up, in what would have been his first TV outing since he was acquitted of child molestation charges two weeks ago. Four of his brothers were listed on the production schedule but only Tito represented the troubled clan, briefly thanking fans for their support.

Hip-hop ingenue Ciara, who led the field with four nominations, went home with one prize, for best collaboration with Missy Elliott on the song "1, 2 Step."

Besides West, R&B newcomer John Legend and soon-to-disband trio Destiny's Child also had three nominations, and both also made one trip to the stage, for best new artist and best group, respectively. Remy Martin won the female hip-hop category, and Alicia Keys won for best female R&B.

The three-and-a-half-hour event kicked off with a reunion of the Fugees, the Grammy-winning hip-hop group that never followed up its hit 1996 album, "The Score," in part because of the short-lived solo success of singer Lauryn Hill.

Backstage, member Pras alluded to long-standing tensions with fellow Fugees Hill and Wyclef Jean, saying "A lot of wounds is getting healed right now. ... Tonight was a big surgery."

The three are working together in a studio and hope to release an album sometime next year, he said.

Elliott stunned reporters when she admitted she had never heard of Live 8, the upcoming series of global concerts designed to raise awareness of poverty in Africa.

"I don't even know what Live 8 is. I can't tell you what it means," she said.

Also backstage, Keys said she was reviving MTV's "Unplugged" series with plans to perform an acoustic show in July and release the recording in October.

Gladys Knight received a lifetime achievement award and thanked God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. She performed three of the hits she enjoyed with backing group the Pips, "If I Were Your Woman," "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be the First to Say Goodbye)" and the signature tune "Midnight Train to Georgia."
