Monday, Jun 27, 2016

This year’s BET Awards was surprisingly stunning, opening with a surprise performance by Beyonce! She performed her song “Freedom” from her new album “Lemonade.” To add to the intensity, Kendrick Lamar joined her on stage to rap his verse, ending on a pool of water. Wow!

The audience was just stoked!

The Awards ceremony was a whole roller coaster of emotions. Laila Ali and Jamie Foxx held a special moment to remember the life of Muhammad Ali.

“My father Muhammad Ali lived his life with conviction and purpose. He is known the world over as the greatest athlete of all time, a man who fearlessly faced opposition both in and out of the ring,” said Laila. “But to me and my eight sisters and brothers, he was just dad. As his youngest daughter, I can tell that he also was a loving, gentle, and principled man.”

 

Another legend to be honored was Prince, whose tribute occurred throughout the ceremony. Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Bilal, and Jennifer Hudson (who was wearing a white dress with a hood, resembling an outfit Prince wore on the 2005 People’s Choice Awards) all contributed to the unforgettable tribute that surely beat the Billboard Awards and Madonna!
