The BET Awards came and went once again. And once again, BET delivered a special show for all of the network’s supporters and the fans of the artists nominated. Highlighted by an amazing showing via the winne of “Best Female R&B Artist” Alicia Keys. Keys brought in SWV, Chilli and T-Boz of TLC and En Vogue to tear down the house. Chris Brown showed off some impressive moves while T-Pain brought the circus to the stage with his eccentric performance. Lil Wayne also came correct with T-Pain aiding him for “Lollipop” before rolling into “A Milli” to close out the evening. But it will probably be best to see for yourself as BET will replay the show again on Friday June 27th at 7:30pm.
