Last year's host of the BET Awards was Chris Rock and we can only imagine attempting to follow him would be pretty rough. Nevertheless, this year's hosts Tracey Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson really did try their best and well, better luck next year boo's. (Although the Sam Smith bit was hilarious.) Right off the bat we have to mention that they finally got it right airing it live for both the east and west coast so bravo on that BET. OK, now let's get down to the dirt.
Big names like Pharrell, Tyga, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monáe, Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, Ne-Yo, and Ciara were all in the house. Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill stepped out in that house, Diddy and the Bad Boy squad killed it in the house, it would've been cool if Janet f-ing Jackson actually sang in that house, and meanwhile, we were in our house. Talking trash. Because that's how we do. And since the BET Awards show seemed like they went on for 15 solid hours, we won't waste any more time in turning it over to the fine folks on Twitter since they always check their feelings at the door. Bravo on that too, Twitter.
