Low Point: Team Censorship and Tiffany Green. Apparently, BET is as scared of the FCC as much as Rick Ross is scared to zip up his jacket. Team Censorship was bleeping everything. There was certain times when I was quite sure that words they were bleeping were not even curse words. When a rapper was on stage, all I heard was BLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. I get it BET...FCC fines are way out of your budget. I would be hitting that bleep button too. The most famous name out of this show and still a trending topic a day after the show is Tiffany Green. I put absolutely no blame on her. But I do find fault with her fellow presenters, Terrance and Rocsi. These two host a LIVE show Monday through Friday and they could not even help this girl read a teleprompter and a tablet. Then she was blamed for being messy. After the incident Tiffany went backstage and tweeted that she was crying backstage and that BET did it on purpose. BET, two words: Do Better.
High Point: Cee Lo being a part of the tribute for Patti LaBelle. When he came out in that wig, I almost hit the floor. For a man, he does a pretty good Patti. Marsha Ambrosa did a beautiful job herself. Even Shirley Caesar with her fairy godmother, Cinderella, ice princess dress did a good job taking Patti back to church.
I give this year's award show 6 out of 10. It was pretty balance with it's greatest moments and foolery. BET, you doing better but you still got a few loose ends.
