The 2014 BET Awards will air live today on BET. The cable network’s signature event continues to grow as one of the best award shows in entertainment.
But there are several things you should look out for while watching the show. Here are five intriguing questions about the 2014 BET Awards.
Will BET give a proper tribute to Bobby Womack?
BET owes Bobby Womack a proper tribute. The legend, who passed on Friday, was one of the greatest songwriters in history and inspired a multitude of soulful singers. His tribute should serve as a reminder of his greatness and allow the younger generation to understand why he was important to music.
Will Chris Brown perform after months of being in jail?
Chris Brown has spent the majority of 2014 in jail. But now that he is out, his fans will be looking for his comeback performance on a national stage.
Will Robin Thicke make us cringe with another desperate plea to Paula Patton on stage?
At this point, everyone knows that Robin Thicke messed up big time with his ex-wife Paula Patton. There is hope that they can get back together for the sake of their family, but we’re tired of listening to Thicke cry and beg his way back into Patton’s heart. If he’s going to “get her back,” it has to be done in the privacy of their own home, or maybe a coffee shop. But he won’t win her back on the BET stage.
Who will Chris Rock embarrass?
Chris Rock is brutal when it comes to aiming jokes at celebrities. When he hosted the MTV Music Awards, Rock blasted Jennifer Lopez, Puff Daddy, ‘N Sync, Coldplay and Christina Aguilera while they were all in the audience. Rock will have plenty to discuss, but we’re all waiting for his take on the Jay Z and Solange fight.
Will Nicki Minaj give a memorable performance, or a performance to forget?
Nicki Minaj can put on an entertaining show. However, her weird 2012 Grammy performance will be remembered as a horrible moment in the history of Grammy Awards. Minaj performed an exorcism on stage and caught flack from several religious organizations. She could play it safe at the BET Awards, but safe doesn’t appear to be in Minaj’s vocabulary.
