Stephen Hill of BET was on "The Tom Joyner Morning Show" this morning and he said that he is going to do everything in his power to make sure that the tribute is fantastic. He said that they are going to extend the broadcast (which they can do since it is on their own network) and he said that he and his staff are giving stars to change their performances up a bit knowing that they would probably want to add something Michael Jackson-related. He also said that he is trying to get in touch with some folks who might be able to REALLY make the show a success. He said that he thinks that the show will quickly turn into a tribute show and then said "as well it should be."

This is a very crucial moment for B.E.T, the entire nation will be watching this e vent, I expect this to be by far the most watched televised event broadcast by BET, I just hope they appropriately celebrate the life of the King of Pop and Greatest Entertainer of all time Michael Jackson...I'm am soooooooooooo ready for this show....they extended it by 30mins...so reset your DVRs....

The BET Awards are usually an embarassment. Hopefully they'll do better this year. So far though it's been horrible but I guess it's just the preshow.

More stars are talking to Don Lemon then to the BET preshow hosts.
Did Chaka Khan sing on BET? Nope.

Sorry Bee but you will never be able to sing that Sarah McLachlan verse with the same intensity as Sarah McLachlan.

I will give you credit for singing the real Ave Maria opera-esque.
You have grown vocally in the last 3 years classically after that awful awful French you sang on the Oscars.

The women has to stop taking other people's songs that she half-asses vocally.

So artists she shouldn't sing:
Des'ree, Sarah McLachlan, Alicia Keys, anything from the Jazz Divas or Pop Divas.

Then if you would have really read it then you would have no issue with me being a realist.
I wasn't the only one who said something "nasty".
People agree with me that she should have put some clothes on and the outfit wasn't cute.
In fact, they mentioned it before me.

That's your opinion that she's an excellent performer.
She obviously takes her vision too far sometimes as that outfit showed.
What she does excell in as I have mentioned before is as a businesswomen.
Other than that you will not see me kissing her ass like you are.

That wasn't a duet. It might have had Keyshia's name all in the background but Monica looked better, sang better, and had better stage presence.

Keyshia will learn though.
Hint: Don't encourage a women whose been in the business for over 15 years to sing better because she will outshine you.

Monica is the truth, her vocals were on POINT!!!

As for Whitney, there's rumors all over the net that she's there. Some are saying she's going to sing, others are saying she's going to present, and some are saying she's going to do some sort of tribute. For all we really know she ain't even there, although I'm hoping for the best...

Speaking of ugly, I'm surprised I'm saying this but Jay-Z is starting to look slightly attractive.

I thought it over and it was a good award show considering that they only had 3 days to change it.
I loved when Janet came out at the end, :sad: I was almost in tears!!
Also, (sorry if you feel I'm rude for saying this), but did anyone else think that Joe Jackson was a little too happy? I was like, your son just died and you're enjoying yourself on the red carpet, jamming to performances and everything! You're the one that should be feeling guilty right now for the way you treated him all those years!!
Sorry, I had to get that out, lol.
And I definitely have to give props to Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo for their performances. Ne-Yo did such a great job singing The Lady in My Life and that duet with Jamie at the end was great!!
Finally, I actually have to give credit to Ciara for singing well THIS time. Still shaky but good improvement.
And what was that by Beyonce?! I thought she was going to actually PERFORM!!
