BET Awards.....Chris Brown redeems himself? Minaj wins BIG


The 2010 BET awards was a BIG one.....

I have scoured websites across the globe to give you's all an update on the gowns, the speeches, the drama and the perfrormances HOW EXCITING!!!!

So firstly: Beau of the Ball....Nicki Minaj who won Best Female Hip Hop Act, Best New Artist, and Best Group with Young Money.

Accepting her award
When she got the award for Best Female Hip Hop Act she hugged labelmate Drizzy and went on stage. Her speech went like so:
“This is for Dwayne Carter" ......for his tough love and tough words etc
She went on with a clear message to the recent Lil Kim diss....
“Thank you to Queen Latifah because you know what, earlier we were rehearsing and she gave me so much positive energy. I think it’s so important right now for positive energy among women because I’m fighting for women. This is not for me, this is for all of us!!! So thank you all the female rappers that paved the way for me...."
During her performance
I've heard stupid rumours that Nicki looked like she was lip synching during hewr performance on the show....she called it out on Twitter and said 'she can't wait for the re-runs' to show she was live. You can make up your own minds on that one.
On to Chris Brown who was the other stand out figure of the night. During an emotional tribute to the King Of Pop, Brown broke down during his AMAZING performance....spine tingling stuff. 
He sailed through renditions of 'The Way You Make Me Feel' to 'Billie Jean' with picture perfect copy of MJ's every move.

It was when he got to the poignant 'Man in the Mirror' that he crumbled down to the stage with tears streaming down his face, unable to sing: a sure sign of the way he has been treated since Rihanna-gate.

He later collected a 'Fandemonium' award and said in his speech:
"I let you all down, but I won't do it again."

Let's hope he's learnt from his mistakes and can move on. AWESOME performance though. Check it out here: (keep your eyes on 2.5 mins in.....massive!). Emotional stuff.....

Other notable performances was the tribute to Prince who was collecting a 'Lifetime Achievement' award...

Alicia Keys (who won Best Female R&B Artist + Best Collaboration with Jay Z for 'Empire State Of Mind') , Patti Labelle, Janelle Monae (who was absolutely HEAVY)
