yeah..lets not act like BET hasnt done travesty to tributes of others..MJ etc. Yall are now acting like BET is/was the epitome of class. Get the entire fuck out of here with that bullshit.
13025151, do you really have to earn the right to be shady? |

He's right...BET is def. miles ahead when it comes to their musical tributes...There's no debating that....
13025253, he's all up Madges Vag... shit was garbage|

13025263, Oh really? once again you prove how dense u can be|
Posted by rdhull, Mon May-23-16 10:56 AM
its almost weekly
you presume so much
murph too in this case
given the final 5 minutes of time allotted, you re not going to have a grand celebration..and for what it was at this early time, a song or two was good enough
now given other award shows having months and almost a year to prepare..of course there will be more of a tribute
and that 2010 Prince BET tribute where the ladies sang was wack, yall are revisionists
there wasnt any Revolution, there wasnt The Time, there wasnt Sheila,...
stop being unreasonable..if you can
13025274, so you admit they half assed it. You work for Billboard? |
Posted by legsdiamond, Mon May-23-16 11:06 AM

What am I presuming? lol
I'm merely stating that the OP who kicked off this thread is mixing apples and oranges....
I've seen some lackluster BET Awards shows. But that's because I'm not a huge fan of seeing SOME-NOT-ALL R&B performances being reduced to dancing, lip-synching high school talent show-level exercises..The one thing BET USUALLY gets right though is those tributes. They have knocked them out of the park, more often than not...
As to your girl, I don't care how much time Madonna was given. That was a lackluster performance any way u slice it. Like the homie Jon Bream said on Madge's BB tribute at the Star Tribune (Prince's hometown paper...), "U got the look, not the voice..." (link: http://www.startribune.com/madonna-s-tribute-to-prince-on-billboard-awards-u-got-the-look-not-the-voice/380453241/)
And don't get it twisted......I'm glad that Prince is being acknowledged. And I'm not one of those folks crying about why Madonna was chosen in the first place; I like a lot of her prime shit (P and and ol girl were indeed cool. They dated...And before he died he gave her a private concert....)...My issue is with the tepid song choice, Madonna's at times uneven vocals; and using Stevie on the low as a shield to dodge any criticism...lol..It lacked LIFE....
And yeah, BET will do better.....
13025307, a song or 2 is good enough? and you called me dense? |
Posted by legsdiamond, Mon May-23-16 11:53 AM
we are talking about a man who had the Eifel Tower, Empire State Building, Niagra Falls, Sydney Orchestra House all in purple when he died and the Billboard award did 2 songs and that was enough?
FOH with that bullshit bruh.
Do it right or don't do it at all.
13025325, when you have 5 minutes it is...duh, pay attention|

13025348, RE: when you have 5 minutes it is...duh, pay attention|
Posted by murph71, Mon May-23-16 12:49 PM
A decent to good performance can be achieved in 5 minutes...Timing is not the issue here....
13025435, you need more people bruh, the majority thought it was lackluster|

Posted by DavidHasselhoff, Mon May-23-16 08:03 AM
13025121, being sold out to Viacom certainly didn't help|
Posted by Atillah Moor, Mon May-23-16 08:06 AM
13025123, but will there tribute be better?|
Posted by legsdiamond, Mon May-23-16 08:16 AM

Hell, BET at times awkward Prince tribute (I see u Alicia Keys) still Ethers Billboard...
Nah....I know it's cool to make fun of BET's janky-ness at times....But when it comes to honoring our own people they usually get it right....
13025196, basically, BET prolly gonna have all his people on stage|
Posted by legsdiamond, Mon May-23-16 09:41 AM
13025203, RE: basically, BET prolly gonna have all his people on stage|
Posted by murph71, Mon May-23-16 09:53 AM
Yep...u see it....
People just like to shit on BET because it's easy...And don't get it twisted, they have fumbled the ball at times, especially when it comes to their programing (which has gotten better over the years...)
But if anyone is complaining about BET's actual MUSICAL TRIBUTES on their award shows, they either haven't been paying attention or just hating just to be hating....
I mean in just ONE of those links I posted, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, and Stevie Wonder were KILLING it onstage together....lol
13025252, 2 stevie wonders on stage with Chaka? BET aint fucking around|

13025197, the BET Awards is mostly great|
Posted by atruhead, Mon May-23-16 09:45 AM
Im a little biased because I worked the event in 2013, but yeah I think people get it twisted and confused with the BET Hip Hop Awards which is janky
either that or they automatically associate BET with poor quality
13025276, Yeah, they mostly decent, but that Smokey tribute was booty butt crack|
Posted by Boogie Stimuli, Mon May-23-16 11:07 AM
Tori Kelly was cool, but you do not have
2 outta 3 performers be white on a tribute
to a Black artist on the *B*ET awards.
Might as well take the "B" off and show
Talk Soup afterward.
13025187, fair criticism, but still a smart move on their part...|
Posted by CyrenYoung, Mon May-23-16 09:35 AM
..in this current age of outrage, this was a no-brainer response to the Twitter world.
*skatin' the rings of saturn*
..and miles to go before i sleep...
13025284, Either way. I'm in dat thang. |

13025424, think bet had highest ratings of these awards shows recently|
Posted by Riot, Mon May-23-16 02:32 PM
And was sniffing close to a lot of the broadcast tve awards except the majors, ex- grammys
Hence crying over Oscarssowhite and ciara, ll cool j, jlo, Kevin hart, queen latifah, and other 'colorful' hosts being picked recently
Anyway, bet should just cut most of their usual stuff and spend the last 1hr jamming out
The categories /nominees are mostly random anyway. We won't really miss nikki minaj 9th win in a row.
But I betta not see Chris Brown crying on stage and blaming it on mj/prince
