Janet Jackson didn’t have to sing one note — Her sheer presence was enough to slay for days!
The legendary singer accepted the Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual award at the 2015 BET Awards and when she stepped on stage the crowd erupted in applause. A tribute was also performed in her honor with Tinashe, Jason Derulo and Ciara dancing for the lives to several Janet hits.
While Janet slayed, it seemed as though K. Michelle threw a little shade … at her former nemesis, Tamar Braxton. The two frenimies performed together during the show in an effort to mend their relationship, but when we asked K about the performance she made sure to tells us, “It was my performance and my idea. I just wanted to do something different.” Well, it was different and a bit awkward as their uncomfortable energy was palpable.
On a lighter note, the most hilarious moment of the night came courtesy Diddy who fell through a trap door on stage during the Bad Boy 20th anniversary reunion. The “Take Dat” king hopped right up and continued to perform. Kudos!
