Bet Music Awards- Did You Watch?

Well Bet quickly changed their format when they learned of the death of Michael Jackson. I think that was such and honorable thing to do .

Michael Jackson's father, Joe Jackson was among the members present at the ceremony. I think he is now grieving not only the lost of a song but the lost of a relationship he did not have.

People who honored Michael at this event were
Beyonce, Ne-Yo, Kanye West, Queen Latifah, and Keri Hilson, Maxwell, Fabolous, Soulja Boy, Keyshia Cole and Mary Mary among others, as the various performers and presenters and winners offered words about the legendary King of Pop and how he had inspired them.

"No need to be sad. We want to celebrate this black man," said Jamie Foxx, who kicked off the show with a re-enactment of the choreography from Jackson's iconic "Beat It" video.
