Music News: BET 2010 Awards

https://i0.wp.com/www.bet.com/Assets/BET/Published/image/jpeg/9484d1c7-2cca-577f-4245-3769df165ff7-beta10_Starbucks_WRTM_bboard.jpg

Sunday night marked the 2010 BET Awards, hosted by Queen Latifah, and an all-star roster of celebrities presented, performed, and took home top honors.

Between Prince‘s Lifetime achievement award and Queen Latifah running the show, there was plenty of royalty at last night’s 10th anniversary of the BET Awards. But in the midst of the performances of accolades, the stage was also set for a few big names to make their comebacks.

Jermaine Jackson announced the first return of the evening when he introduced the tribute to his late brother, thanking everyone for their love and support over the past year. He added, “There is one tribute performance we have yet to see…here he is.”

Chris Brown was poised behind the curtain, looking like the silhouette of Michael Jackson himself. Once he came out, there was a palpable moment of tension so strong, it could almost be felt through the TV.

Brown crotch-grabbed and moon-walked his way like a pro through the Michael Jackson songs as a supportive audience cheered him on.

But then the opening bars from “Man in the Mirror” began to play, and we all braced for the irony of the words. Brown got through about one line of the song before his voice started to quiver with tears. After a few heartfelt efforts to regain composure, Brown fell to his knees sobbing and completely gave up trying to sing as the backup track took over.

But Brown wasn’t the only one returning to the stage: Kanye West opened the show on top of a mountain – literally – as he performed his latest single, “Power.” T.I gave an upbeat performance that had the whole crowd moving, and El DeBarge was also a surprising treat as he performed a new song from his upcoming album and a medley of his R&B hits.

Queen Latifah kept the show flowing as she changed outfits about 500 times, and Alicia Keys also had a good night. She won Best Female R&B artist, Best Collaboration for her work with Jay-Z in “Empire State of Mind,” and also fit in two performances: a medley set of her own songs early on in the program, and then she joined in the Prince tribute.

But probably the best Prince performance of the night came from the one and only Patti LaBelle, who sang “Purple Rain” like we’ve never heard it before. LaBelle flicked her shoes off into the audience where Prince picked one of them up and gestured in respect to the diva.

LaBelle came back and joined Chaka Khan on stage to formally present Prince with his Lifetime Achievement Award.

Overwhelmed by the amount of praise coming from the audience, Prince asked everyone to sit down and said he was “speechless.” He started by thanking Jehovah, and then remarked on the future of music. “I do believe the future is in good hands, there is so much talent here,” he said.

Then Prince offered some words of wisdom to the young talent in the room. “I was pretty wild in my younger days and you don’t have to do what I did and you don’t have to make the mistakes I made,” he said. “Thank you for a wonderful night tonight, I’ll never forget it as long I live.”

Trey Songz took home Best Male R&B Artist and Drake won Best Male Hip Hop Artist. Nicki Minaj received the award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist and thanked the female rappers who paved the way for her.

Rihanna received the coveted Viewer’s Choice Award for “Hard,” but was not there to accept it. Also not there to accept Awards were Beyonce’ and Lady Gaga, who won Video of the Year for their collaboration in “Video Phone,” and Jay-Z was absent from the show as well.

Chris Brown had the last word, at least for the night. After his Jackson tribute, he was announced as the surprise winner of BET’s Fandemonium award, a prize determined by fan votes, beating out apparent favorites like Justin Bieber, Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj.

Stepping to the stage to receive his trophy, Brown gave a quick acceptance speech. “I let you all down before, but I won’t do it again,” he said. “I promise you.”

~ “Alicia Keys’ performance had me at the edge of my seat when she climbed on top of her piano. I was so nervous that she wouldn’t fall, even Prince looked nervous. As for Chris Brown, I was so excited to see him perform, and hear how the crowd cheered him on. It was one of the best performances I saw. He really knows how to break down Michael Jackson’s moves. Welcome back Chris Brown.”

Blanket and Paris Jackson have become YouTube sensations in new videos posted on the internet.

Michael Jackson‘s children, aged 9 and 12, respectively can be seen clowning around in front a webcam, reenacting scenes from movies and lip-synching to rap music in the home-made clips. Blanket, real name Prince Michael II wields a pretend lightsabre as he shows off his acting skills in a Star Wars skit. Later he drops in a reference to animated film Monsters Inc.

While Paris shows her love for hip-hop music by miming to rap song supposedly recorded by family friend Omer Bhatti.

According to reports, the webcam clips may have originated from the French-language fansite Kingsofpop-kids.com, according to E! News online.

I’m so glad to see these kids feeling like they don’t need to hide anymore. It was nice to see another side of them and actually being normal kids. Your thoughts?

Breaking News: Lawrence Taylor Charged With Third-Degree Rape and Released on $75K Bail

Lawrence Taylor Being Arraigned For Rape Charges.

Ex-NFL star Lawrence Taylor is arrested on charges of third degree rape of a minor and patronizing a prostitute. He has just been released on $75,000 bail.  This is not Taylor’s first run-in with the law, pass charges have included hit-and-run, and soliciting crack. The victim in the suit is not named because she’s a 16 year old run-a-way (minor).

It turns out the victim’s pimp set her up with Lawrence Taylor for $300, in a hotel where she claims she was beaten and raped. Details of the case are unfolding and Taylor’s family is claiming that he was set-up by the pimp and the 16 year old girl. His wife, Lynette is standing by his side and she’s adamant about his innocence. His lawyer has also expressed Taylor’s innocence. Cops have described Taylor as cooperative.  Reports suggest the victim had bruises and a black eye prior to meeting Lawrence Taylor. Lastly, a condom has been found at the scene which seems to suggest consensual sex. Taylor has not been charged with forcible rape at this time.
