The 2013 BET Awards Killed TURNUP and Charlie Wilson Brought the House Down

I never miss the BET Awards because even when it’s bad, the tweets make it afun to watch. But this year, it actually wasn’t that bad. And for BET, that means it was a good show.

2013-bet-awards-logo2 I missed the first hour of the show so I’m gonna act like those 60 minutes didn’t exist.

* Why did Mariah Carey’s performance feel like deja vu? Oh yeah, that’s because I’m pretty sure I saw in 1997, sans Miguel. All that gold light surrounding her was supposed to distract us from the fact that she was doing runs for 4 minutes and it was boring. You better innovate or sing an AMAZING song. You can’t just stand on stage, sing a mediocre song and do nothing else.

* Why did Kevin Hart single-handedly kill the phrase TURN UP??? He got onstage and used it so many times that I am ready to declare the already overused phrase DEAD AND GONE! Like the old T.I. Him being the size of an average 4th grader standing onstage with 6 other men coulda been hilarious if he had stopped yelling in the mic. RIP Turn UP. Rest in past.

Also, why is Quvenzhane gonna be taller than Kevin Hart by next summer? That skit with the 2 of them had me cracking up because he’s so little.

* What was Jamie Foxx talmbout when he said we were living in a world of Djangos? Because I surely didn’t understand that part in his acceptance speech. Also, I laughed when he was getting on the stage and him and Kevin Hart did a shimmy. I would actually watch a movie with those two in it.

Jamie Foxx Kevin HArt

Shoutout to Jamie for that Trayvon Martin shirt, doe.

* Why did I get so giddy when I saw the cast of the Best Man Holiday on stage? I’m really looking forward to that movie for nostalgia’s sake. I hope it’s good. I need it to be on point!

* How many accents did Nicki Minaj use in her acceptance speech? We all agreed on 3-4. Also, why do they even have the category when they just need to hand her the award? What other female rapper is actually popular right now? As you wait for the answer, I’ll go make a sammich.

* Why was Miguel’s falsetto killing me softly during his performance? He sounded like a cat when someone steps on its tail at one point. I wanted him to STAHP! Also, who else held their breath when he jumped off the stand he was on? I was like “Please don’t let him land on someone’s head.” Whooo. Miguel got folks out here nervous whenever his feet aren’t on the ground.

* Why did MC Lyte butcher Quvenzhane’s name so bad? She missed an entire syllable when she was announcing her to come onstage. Haven’t we gone through tutorials to learn how to say her name yet?? Related: MC Lyte ain’t gon ever go without a job as long as award shows exist. She’s become the Matron Saint of Announcing.

* Was the BET Awards sponsored by Wilson’s Leather? Why was EVERYONE in hot ass cow hide? Isn’t LA HOT AS HELL DEGREES right now? Chile…

* Why am I petty and refusing to acknowledge Kendrick Lamar as a rapper because his mama named him that for him to be an R&B singer? If you wanna rap, you change your stage name to Yung Kendrick the Don or LIL KEN KEN. Or Kendreezy the Goon.

* Why did India Arie rock a sequins bell bottom and a scarf that looked like it was a cut up old t-shirt during her tribute to Charlie Wilson? I love her granola Mother Earth hug this damb tree and tell it that it is nice as it is self though.

* Who the hell do I cuss out in Stevie Wonder’s team??? Y’all know how I feel all passionate about the fact that Stevie be at EVERY award show. But this damb people put them man in a suit with his own face on the chesticles last night. There were Stevie breasts on Stevie’s suit.

Stevie Wonder BET Awards

Ok so MAYBE those aren’t Stevie on his chest but… still.  Folks said they “put emojis on his shirt and he ain’t e’em know it.” I HOLLERED. I was so mad and I didn’t know who to be mad at. UGH!!! They be treating Stevie Wonder like Molly the Maid. “I don’t talk to the help.” Word to Joseline.

Highlight of the Night – The Charlie Wilson Tribute

* Why was Charlie Wilson’s performance THE BEST of the night?? That geriatric got his lifetime achievement award and then got on stage and gave us ALL our LIVES, with the help of Pharrell, Snoop (Lion) and Justin Timberlake. I spent the entire performance saying “YESSSSSSS UNCAH CHARLIE!!!” He showed the younguns what it’s like to SANG, dance and entertain! Miguel, watch, listen and LEARN!

It was so good! The vocals were on point, the songs were classics and the dancing from the four of them was just so fun. They looked like they were having just as much fun as the audience was and that put it over the top.

Charlie Wilson Justin Timberlake Snoop

The show could (and should) have ended there. In fact, that performance by itself was enough for me to say the show was actually one of the better ones BET has had.

* Why is J.Cole such a snooze to me? He is so boring that I have nothing else to offer on his performance.

* Why did Tamela Mann take us all to CHU’CH so effortless? I couldn’t e’em tweet during her performance because I was rocking #bagginfoaf like an IKEA table as she SAING the house down. Chile… I love me some Cora.

* Why is this my first time hearing about Curtis Fields? Dude’s voice is hella smooth and his song as actually good. Although I did side-eye him for playing a guitar iPhone app instead of an actual guitar. I was like WAYMENT. Sir, you’re performing on an iPHONE?!? Folks said it’s kinda his thing. Turns out he created his music from an iPhone since he couldn’t afford a studio or instruments. BUT, can’t he find a guitar that costs less than the $500 an iPhone does? Chile… I guess.

* Can they just hire me to write award show dialogues already??? Because the banter between presenters be so AWKWARD that it’s painful to watch sometimes. They had Michael B. Jordan and Forrest Whitaker basically staring at each other at one point. Well, mayne the teleprompter when out.

* Why were Chris Tucker’s jokes so dry? There was a point where they basically told Chris to stall and entertain so he started telling jokes about how the first Black president, Bill Clinton (*rolls eyes*) helped get Barack Obama elected. And the jokes were more tired than I was by 10:30pm CST. TIRED. The audience basically chuckled politely because Chris was bout as funny as calculus.

* Why was most of Nicki Minaj’s performance bleeped out? Do artists not know to chill on the rated-R version of their songs when performing? The poor censors could NOT keep up and more than a couple of 4-letter words slipped through the cracks.

* Why did Ciara get on that stage and bodyroll for her life?!? The girl is a gifted dancer for real, and whenever we’re close to forgetting, she reminds us with a performance like the one she did. I’ont e’em remember her vocals. Getting her Baby Janet on.

Ciara BET Awards

If Ciara wasn’t famous, she’d be making twerk vids for youtube. And we’d all watch. So either way, we’d know her. lol

* Did Debra Lee get a new stylist? Because if so, GOOD for her! She looked fantastic last night. I’m sure everyone peeped that she’s on Team Natural Hair now.

* Why did Dwyane Wade’s outfit remind me of the shiny suit era? Well, probably because his jacket looked like tin foil. BUT I give him SUPER props for his work with Wade’s World. Shoutout to him for giving something tangible back to where he came from.

* Why did that entire Reggae set give me what I needed?!?! Beenie Man and Elephant Man kicked it off. But when Chaka Demus & Pliers came out and started with “A pretty face and bad character…” I basically lost my mind bodyrolling backwards. Almost broke my back! I juked something proper and dutty wined like I was getting paid for it. They got me HYPED! Nicki Minaj was getting her entire life too in the front row.

Nicki Minaj Reggae BET Awards

* Why was 2Chokerz 2Chainz onstage dressed like a swamp thing? Again, TOO MUCH LEATHER! And why can I not pick out ASAP Rocky in a lineup even if he had on a tshirt that said “I am ASAP Rocky” on it? Chile… womp. I went to the kitchen and fixed myself a plate during their performance.

* Why was Bow Wow in all white? Looking like a chaperone, if Heaven had a kindergarten. He’s adorabo.

* Why was I too tired to get hyped during the Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu performance? Those two ladies are beasts and they rocked the house but by that time, the show had already gone on 10 minutes longer than I expected and 1 hour longer than it should have. They shoulda cut out a buncha other performances so Janelle and Erykah could get the time and energy they deserved.

Overall, it was a decent show, and this makes two years in a row (because the 2012 BET Awards were surprisingly good)! As always, the tweets made it so much more fun! I don’t know what it’s like to watch award shows without Twitter anymore. It’d be like… 2005. EEK! Next year, I’ll be at the BET Awards reporting live with the tea.

Anywho, what did you think of the awards? Also, anything of note from the first hour? I heard R.Kelly’s performance was dope but I’m too lazy to watch it right now.

I am oh so heated at Stevie Wonders outfit but the meme that came out last night stated ” Put emojis all on his coat. He aint even know it… 😡 😡 ” I collapsed in my bed. icant breathe

    I miss a lot by watching Sesame Street and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse everyday instead of Video Soul and Sir Ratchet’s Cellblock, as in BETs regular daily programming 😐 So I try to always make a point to watch the awards so I can catch up on months of ratchet and ghetto-isms all in one night. I’m never disappointed! And by that, of course, I mean I’m always disappointed 😐

    Aside from the hideous dialogue during award presentations…I was most appalled that an actual music channel could not seem to do better at playing music. During R Kelly’s performance (the choir singalong was comical at best), they needed a DJ that was familiar with…I don’t know, perhaps mixing together songs.

    I felt like I was in my bedroom in 7th grade singing along to a cd that I literally stopped and started myself. It was jerky and confusing and if I’m in the middle of “I’m (Loving) You Tonight” I don’t appreciate such amateurish

    BET, I give you one night a year, do better!

    Chris Tucker looked like John Witherspoon telling jokes. All he was missing was some patent leather white Tic Tac-looking shoes, and bow tie, and a belt to coordinate it all with. Somebody even tweeted about his Members Only jacket at one point.

    He was funny when he was talking about his tax issues though, but it got dry when he kept blaming Wesley Snipes. We get it. Ha Ha. Wesley gave you bad advice. Move. On.

    At the pre-show, I hoped it would not rain so Angela Simmons Charmin tissue dress wouldn’t swell up.

    This year’s show was a mish mash of random ratchedness and crazy. Or maybe I am getting too old. Eh – I ended turning to True Blood and watched the final season premiere of Dexter before I went to sleep. However, Luvvie’s recaps of this gives me life – like a 5-hour energy drink laced with foolery and I am here for it!

  9. July 1, 2013 at 8:53 am

    Kevin Hart is so so so tiny, you could just pick him up, put him in your shirt pocket and take him to a business meeting and nobody’d be the wiser…unless he screamed out TURN UP!!! Then, you’d have to do the perp walk out of said meeting cause yes, you called it, last night was the official beginning and end of Turn Up.

    Yes to everything also Robin Thickes Blurred lines was awesome sorry you missed it and the Reggae set had my lighters burning I love my people. I never want to hear Turn up ever again if you think Kev killed it then Ray J buried it during the after party I had on cause I was too lazy to change the channel -__- The writing was terrible for all of the presenters and Bet never fails to let the EBT struggle show with the mishaps/ misses cues/ mic issues.

    PS what in the hell was Paula Patton on Robin Thickes wife was so high she could touch the skier more lit than Snoop and Kendrick Lamar and I have questions.

    Yes, French Montana’s stage presence was terrible. No, that did not stop me from poppin’ that.

    Angela Simmons’s dress = Judy Jetson 

    Ciara’s 2013 look = Keri Hilson 2009

    I’m still tryna figure out where and why they dug up Kane from Menace II Society O___O


    It will always be the Fox Hills Mall and you will always be Snoop DOGG. Period. (Southern Cali reference)

    I had a full on party in my living room when Robin Thicke/T.I./Pharrell, Uncle Cholly/Pharrell/Justin Timberlake/Snoop Dogg and Dawn Penn/Elephant Man/Beanie Man/Chaka Demus were on stage. Werrrrrrrk! 

    Angela Bassett looks as good as Gabrielle Union. Yes ma’am!

    Erykah got a DONK! Hopefully, she won’t put a root on Kendrick, too, with her voodoo nookie and have him dressing like a 65 year old white male golfer. We’ll see…..

    Presenting the gospel award with ya titties out….no ma’am, Meagan

    Oh, you went to school for acting, Nicki Minaj? That explains why you act an ass so well. Mystery solved!

    Kudos D. Wade! Great example has been set!

    Paula Patton was acting like Paula Abdul. She & El Debarge were high as astronaut piss

      And as for Paula, that girl was around alot of segzy chocolate and caramel, something she ain’t quite had in while (lookin @ you, Robin Thicke!!!!)

      Oh, Janelle shoulda been longer and somewhere in the middle of the show and I needed the original white chocolate, Mr. JT heself, to hit me with Pusher Love Girl and Strawberry Bubblegum

    I did catch the beginning of R-rah but I used that moment to run to the kitchen. I also rewound just to catch Robin Thickes performance which I enjoyed even though TI was lackluster. He was killing me with his Sanford and son/James brown moves though.

      Erykah walked from the mic after that set and my husband and I looked at each other appreciatively. Because damn.

      The Best Man Holiday cast did make me incredibly happy. I was grateful to Nikki Minaj for her comments to them even if she was high as a giraffe’s ass. I want to hate on R Kelly so so bad (although I don’t fully remember why anymore) but damn if he ain’t gots the medly fo life. Oh, the memories just a few bars of a Kells song can cue. I do love India. I do not love India’s camel toe. Look away! Alas, I cannot. I’ma have to watch the end like you need to watch the beginning because I was done (my girls’ hair) after Uncle Charlie.

      I really do think J. Cole is not for everybody #thatisall

      Kellz had me with his medley of ’90 hits, all he was missing was Sparkle and Syleena Johnson and I’da been done for….also may I direct your attention to my comment under RavenJ

      BET play too murch with the reggae medley…had me in my people’s basement dutty wining and butterflying like I ain’t had no good sense…..I was RHET from Sean Paul ta come out with “Shake dat ting, miss…” It woulda been ova!!!!!

      Mariah apparently don’t realize that we just don’t gibbadamb no mo’ #haveaseatmadame

      I’m still waiting for Miguel to give up the ghost and claim his homosexuality…I promise we will accept you #comeintothefoldmychile

      Tamela, ummmmm….that all I can say….All she was missing was Brown shouting “SANG, CORA”…You best sang for yo Jesus and Jehovah, Cora Mae!!!!!

      And last but not least, the little midget man Kevin Hart, occupy the tiniest chair you can find because you are on punishment for the rest of the year…and Meagan, beloved, I’m gon need you to find Devon (with his FAHN self #prayforme) and have him educate you on proper wardrobe for presenting a gospel award cause girl, yo titties was POW POW in yo face!!!!!!

      The missed cues, awkward transitions, bad lighting, the missing guests of honor are all mainstays when it comes to BET productions! It seemed that about an hr of Chris Tucker’s awkward stalling (aka stand-up) could have been cut out if the acts were ever ready to perform! Thank God for fast forward on DVR!

          July 1, 2013 at 8:34 pm

          “All of that” was approved beforehand by BET’s sponsors and the show’s producers. “All of that” is what one would, presumably expect when hiring a known androgynous fashion/style gossip blogger. In fact, according to him, P&G-the sponsors- had no idea and after he was pulled from the carpet and told he would NOT return, “somebody” made a call and he was allowed to return.

          BET, who let Megan Good wear a dress down to her navel to present a gospel award from what I understand, has little room to quibble about appropriate dress.

    This awards show was definitely was an improvement and you gotta catch the Blurred Lines performance Luvvie Robin did that!. Chris Tucker just blew all his chances of a comeback away.

    Yes the phrase Turn Up is so damb dead Kevin Hart’s use didn’t bother me that much, but I literally caught all of 5 minutes of the After Party they used it so much you would have thought they were getting paid extra for every time they used it.

    Why are you tearing up everyone , I have to totally disagree with the majority of this blog . Mariah Carey slayed she is still one of the only women in the game with a real gorgeous voice with real natural auto tune called her many octaves she was blessed with and Miguel killed it too his voice was sultry sexy and he performed amazing almost reminding me of a new generation Prince with his swag and entire stage presence and Dwayne looked flawless ,exp with Ms. Union that tailoring on that suit was magnificent and if anything Nickis fit should be getting attacked that Roberto Cavalli gown was too gorgeous to be degraded with those plunging tatas and it was embarrassing watching her walk up that stage as her fake booty weighed her down and her heels were obviously ones she failed to break in. Kendrick Lamar gets various props because to me he is living proof real rap still exists fresh out of Compton west coast all everyday baby ,he deserved all that and his name is the absolute cherry on top to his incredible rhyming skills finally a rapper whose name isn’t some dumb over exaggerated played out figure of speech it’s simple chill and dope just like he is. Also I believe Jamie was saying like D’Jango who had to overcome obstacles and heroically took back his life were living in that same slave world we were century’s ago ,everyone’s trying to be something their not to fit in with the superior race , examples how many performers last night had a black woman on their arm a real one deep ebony skin and african features & how many people won last night who clearly shouldn’t have when someone talented out there is struggling to even be heard and being hidden side eye to nicki minaj a few punch lines and hooks don’t make talent or being gimmicky and a superficial attractive with that bleached skin bleached hair and fake asssets & Curtis fields killed it he had to find all those apps and create his music that’s dedication and raw talent I hope he blows up and does well and Austin brown too ,that’s some real music and jcole was amazing too another great rapper with little credit 2chainz is cool for a party bt if you like real lyricism with hot beats and real poetic meaning jcole and Kendrick Lamar are it and they’re here to stay all that other bs will fade out soon so 2chainz and nicki better team up for rebranding ideas Truuuuu,and am I the only one who thought mrs meagan good needed to cover them tatas too exp presenting the gospel award her tatas were screaming Jesus help a sinners on the loose I was tired of all those deep plunging v’s show boobs if you barely have any if you’re top model sexy aka Jessica white Naomi rihanna even not k Michelle or mrs good even though I love them both and she’s a preachers wife she doesn’t have to cover up bt tone it down this isn’t video girl and yea uncle Charlie and pharrel and all of them killed it and the reggae yesssss Jamaican roots and can someone get on angela simmons hosting skills ? Overall it was cool bt there were far worse issues than the non issues you mentioned just saying.#Thanks for letting me explain TURN All THE WAY UPPP!!!!!

      Meanwhile, your disdain for paragraphs gives me pause. This shoulda been broken up into 3 of them. That is all.

    Sorry I’m long winded in text and I had an outburst reading some of the comments on some of the most flattering people of the night.

    Liked: Robin Thicke, R. Kelly, Tamela Mann performance. I also loved Charlie Wilson tribute. Thought Chris Tucker did okay!

    Disliked: Ciara’s performance! This girl got to learn how to reinvent herself to remain relevant. She got to slide across the floor on her knees to keep folks interest. Rihanna can’t dance great, but at least she can sing! Got to mention that her outfit was awful and cheap looking – hair looks like she got it from the corner beauty supply.

    Nikki was holding on to her man like she was a crackhead! She couldn’t walk and look like she co-dependant. I’m still scratching my head?!$?!

    Too much cursing and artists doing shameless plugs! That cheapens the show in general. Basically I give the show a c.

    Are there any rappers that you do like? You tweeted Drake raps like a “diabetic sloth” (I agree) and you say J. Cole is “boring” (I disagree; he’s the only reason I watched the EBT Awards this year).

    When a black thug robbed and put a white guy in coma in Washington DC, did any black people care? But when an accident that we don’t know the details (Trayvon Martin)….all the blacks stood up as if the entire black race was in jeopardy. As Bill Cosby said…blacks are not responsible …
