BET Awards ’10: Show & Audience

Drake and Young Money

After last year’s event was panned by viewers, the pressure was on for BET to step up its game for the 10th Annual BET Awards. The black star power was bright at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium as Prince received the Lifetime Achievement Award, Chris Brown shed tears for the King of Pop, Kanye West and T.I. returned to the stage, and newcomers Drake and Nicki Minaj won big.

An absent Beyoncé and Lady Gaga took home top honors, winning Video of the Year for the Hype Williams-directed “Video Phone (Extended Remix).” “Thank you so much for my first BET award ever, with Honey B! Videophone won VIDEO OF THE YEAR! Paws up for B! X Mother Monster,” tweeted Gaga.

    Last year was terrible with Jamie Foxx running the whole show.

    Thanks to Chris, Drake, Nicki, Trey, Alicia, most of the Prince tribute (minus Janelle Monae’s yelping and that random chick), and Diddy, Dawn and others (lol) the show was spot on.

    CB’s performance was the best! Hopefully he has learned his lesson, and he can now move on with his career.
