bet-awards-2014

The #BETawards took place last night in Los Angeles at the Staples Centre. I must say this was the first I caught an awards show from the beginning and set my alarm to watch and it wasn’t that bad. My favourite part is Chris Rock who hosted the awards and was poking fun at everyone from Paris Hilton getting her Kardashian on to Mike Tyson not knowing how to write. I’ve put together the complete list below and there is a video playlist of all the performances. Chris Brown performed his first TV appearance since his release, Usher had a killer set and BET surprised us with a throwback 90’s R&B set. What was your favourite moment? Let me know in the comment section.
