The Michael B. Jordan joke was a choice…
The BET Awards were last night, and WOW, did they deliver A+ entertainment. They gave us surprise performances, audio malfunctions, awkward moments, and more.
Here are 7 superb moments, and 7 awkward ones too.
AWKWARD: Giveon missed, um, a few notes and then seemingly blamed it on the microphone:
SUPERB: Jazmine Sullivan spoke directly to men, saying that abortion is “not just a woman’s issue” and that men need to “stand up for us” after Roe v. Wade was overturned:
AWKWARD: Giveon then doubled down on Twitter and blamed BET for “sabotaging” his microphone:
AWKWARD: Kanye West arrived like this and said he wanted to declare himself “legally dead for a year” and “off the grid”:
AWKWARD: Jussie Smollett made his first red carpet debut in years, and first one since he was charged with filing a false police report in 2019:
SUPERB: Jack Harlow wore a Lil Nas X shirt after Lil Nas was snubbed in all nominations, despite having a big year:
AWKWARD: The City Girls called out Jessie Woo, who criticized Diddy for not thanking Yung Miami in his speech after she held a sign for him:
Here’s the sign in question:
SUPERB: Lizzo gave a flute-tastic performance:
AWKWARD: Cute from Sistas made a very cringey joke. “These are trying times, and we have to lean on each other,” she said. “I wanna offer my personal shoulder to lean on to Michael B. Jordan.”
