BET Awards 2011


For the past 10 years, during the month of June (perhaps to celebrate Black Music Month), BET- Black Entertainment Television, has held its annual "BET Awards," honoring various artists from the music and entertainment industries. This year, the program was hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, and broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California (Sunday, June 26th, 2011).

Recently, BET has continued to earn top-ratings for this event (especially after their 2009 awards show tribute to Michael Jackson), and this year was arguably their biggest hit, with 7.7 million total viewers. However, a majority of BET fans tend to agree that its best awards show was hosted by comedienne Mo'Nique, who wowed the audience with a parodied performance of Beyoncé's debut music video "Crazy In Love," back in 2004...

Fast forward to this year, Mo'Nique is out... but Beyoncé is still in, this-time-around celebrating the release of her fourth studio album, with yet another show-stopping performance albeit not 'in-the-flesh.' Her performance was pre-recorded and broadcast -via satellite- from the Glastonbury Music Festival in Glastonbury, England; of which, Beyoncé is the 1st African-American female to headline that festival, subsequently giving BET its 1st international performance for the awards show.

Other highlights from this year's show included:
* Chris Brown's multiple wins (including Video of the Year)...

* Tiffany Greene's 'Chrianna' mix-up...

* Patti Labelle's tribute...

* and former BET VJ, Free's "back-side," which became a worldwide #TrendingTopic on #Twitter!
