The Chris Tucker hosted annual BET award show from the Nokia Theater in L.A was covered by Music Lovers Blog, which identified a hiccup with the pre-show red carpet coverage by fashion commentator B. Scott.
The blog was closely following the evening’s events from pre-show to the final curtain, and reported that B. Scott was missing for a large segment of the pre-show section.
B. Scott had been booked to cover the red carpet glitz and glamour and to speak with the nation’s hottest African American stars of TV, film and music before Tucker took to the stage. After disappearing from the red carpet as celebrities arrived, B. Scott re-emerged in a muted masculine outfit.
Music Lovers Blog reports there was a slight hitch with the pre-show due to a last minute change enforced by the event organizers, who deemed B. Scott’s outfit not to be appropriate. B. Scott was allegedly asked to remove his stilettos, change outfit, tie back his hair and take of his makeup before returning to the red carpet to continue with the commentary.
The blog reported that this minor hiccup did little to dampen the Chris Tucker hosted event, although it noted that B. Scott has since taken the opportunity to air his dress code disappointment on the LoveBScott.com blog.
Music Lovers Blog reviewed individual performances from Jamie Foxx, Kevin Hart, Janelle Monáe, Mariah Carey, Erykah Badu, Ciara and R. Kelly.
Janelle Monáe, Ciara and Gabrielle Union received recognition for their award show style while Charlie Wilson was commended for delivering an extra special onstage performance during a thoroughly deserved lifetime achievement award presentation.
In spite of the pre-show hitch with B. Scott, the blog reported that the Tucker led show proceeded without further issues aside from the sound team failing to bleep out all the expletives from Minaj and Badu. Music Lovers Blog did not fault the organizers of the show for these minor issues, but instead praised them for delivering an almost seamless BET Awards ceremony this year. It commended Chris Tucker for delivering plenty of laughs and for the heartfelt tribute to the late Michael Jackson.
This year’s awards ceremony was rated as one of the best in recent years, and it was reported to have been a “resounding success”.
