BET Awards 2012

Live Sunday's 2012 Award BET, the expectation reigned, questions fill Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

What would polarizing singer Chris Brown has said? As the soul singer D'Angelo's highly anticipated return rate performance? And as if BET pay tribute to fallen pop titan Whitney Houston, whose death in February cast a shadow on the Grammys?

The annual show, which began in 2001, is known for his over-the-top performances and drama on stage and in the last year pulled in 7.7million viewers. His slogan this year was "too big to miss" - a phrase that host Samuel L. Jackson knocked on his expletive-filled freestyle on Jay-Z and Kanye West song "... in Paris. "

Performance Jackson was one of many who have made BET Awards as notable for its star power of her hooters out of moments. Awards are given in various categories, including movies and sports, but the main focus of the exhibition awards is the music.

The most anticipated moment of the evening was a tribute to Houston. Led by her mother, Cissy Houston, emotional segment saw Mariah Carey and Houston castmates from "Waiting to Exhale" reverie about his communications.

Because Houston died on February 11, the day before the Grammy telecast, which awards show, there was little time to plan a tribute. BET to fill that void. Monica and Brandy - two divas that Houston maintained over the years - gave the show-stopping performances in front of Houston's mother sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water" to a large graphic of her and her daughter are singing together. She and the audience in tears.

A moving tribute came after the execution of the gospel artist Yolanda Adams, who had some words of wisdom for the artists after the death of Houston.

"We should all y'all .... I tell the world. Please make sure you use your gift responsibly and wisely. We all look," she said, clutching her award for Best Gospel Artist.

Also on Sunday, often embattled Brown made his first appearance after a loud bar highly publicized melee last month that reportedly involved him, a Canadian hip-hop artist Drake and up and coming rapper Meek Mill.

No signs of Drake (whose absence led to his victory to be over), but Mick has performed with his band Music Maybach, and Brown on stage than in the middle of the telecast.

Earlier in the week-end with Brown diss track to Drake surfaced on the Internet, but the performance Sunday was not that particular beef filling.

No shirt, and half his chest painted, Brown appeared in a sea of ​​strobe lights and tore through a medley of "Do not Wake Me Up" and "Turn Up Music" without bows ongoing drama.

Brown captivated the audience with his furious feet, but the singer struggled with a few flat notes, which caused some grumbling among the spectators. But Brown preferred to leave the drama on stage and on the Internet.

The return of D'Angelo was also one of the highlights of the evening. Soul singer has not made an album in 12 years, and his live performances are rare and patchy.

But on Sunday night he won the audience as Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (who wore the white clothes) with a voice that seems to be even better with age - even if too much attention was paid to the missing six-pack press.

The award for best female R & B artist went to Beyonce, who thanked the event to demonstrate the commitment of the genre. Pop artist and rapper Nicki Minaj, who left her cotton candy pink wig and pop hits at home, won the female hip-hop trophy three years running. Brown was named best male R & B singer.

"I did not lose, I'm bad to win .... I've always said it did not," West said as he took the best team trophy to the throne, his collaboration with Jay-Z. Previously, Chicago rapper made a scene stealing freestyle after the launch of a "Charity" and "cold."

In the only chair, gripping races in the evening, Wale beat Holy Trinity Beyonce, Jay-Z and West, in collaboration category with his hit "Lotus Flower Bomb."
