THE 2007 BET AWARDS: THE PERFORMANCES – Diddy, Keyshia Cole & Lil Kim, Beyonce, and Kelly Rowland & Eve!!
I ain’t gon lie, when “Last Night” came out, I was wtf-in for a minute! But after some time, it got stuck in my head and I grew to love it. Now you know Diddy always brings it (visually at least) with his performances. I can’t say I was too pleased though. The visuals were great, but home boy just didn’t deliver too well. Is it that hard to sing live? He already sounds horrible singing on the track, so hearing him “belt” out the lyrics live wouldn’t hurt … that bad. But Keyshia Cole did her thing, and Lil Kim showed out too … so I can’t really complain!!
Beyonce!! I didn’t know what the hell was going on when the performance first started. What was up with the robot thing? Haha, anyhow … she really tore the house down with Get Me Bodied, and it was pretty cool when she brought Solange and Michelle on stage to do the little dance break. Mo’Nique stepped out there for a second or two to “pose for the cameras” and “do an old school dance.” Then, the music stops … and out comes Kelly Rowland!
A lot of people are mad because Kelly didn’t do “her own thing.” But whatever, I liked it this way! It let people know that even though DC3 is gone, they’re still tight as sisters. And that’s what I love. They could have turned her mic up a bit though! Eve came out and did her verse, and the performance ended with all 4 (yes I said 4) of the ladies poppin and shakin (Beyonce, Michelle, Kelly, AND Solange). Great performance!!
