The 2018 BET Music Awards show was very entertaining. Highlights included the Anita Baker Tribute with Yolanda Adams closing it out with those pipes of gold. J Cole, Snoop and Meek Mill’s set were done very well. Uncle Snoop actually took us from crip walking to the church. Meek took issues we are facing right now and used his platform to bring awareness to them. J Cole always manages to serve us with some edutainment with his performance of “Friends”.
I hate to see Debra Lee leaving. While she was there the award shows did become better, I know some may disagree. Another thing, I don’t understand the dislike for the BET Award show? People know darn well the Grammys, Billboard , MTV and other award shows don’t be litty unless black people perform. I guess to each its own though. Jammie Fox was okay as the host. I didn’t like it when they put the camera on him instead of the performer. I still think Kevin Hart was one of the best to host the show. Overall, the show was good and the performances were great as well.
