Shout out to the social media stars! They entertain you online, but last night BET showed them some love on the small screen.
The BET Social Awards aired on Sunday night and celebrated “all things social media over the past year.” The inaugural show was hosted by “African king of comedy” Michael Blackson, executive produced by Mike Epps (and his current bae Kyra Robinson) and aired live from Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. If you didn’t catch the show on Sunday here’s a quick recap of what you missed:
“The night opened with a high-energy medley of the top dances of 2017 starring social media sensations Blame it on Kway and Lala Sizahands followed by Michael Blackson who took the stage with an African-inspired dance number. From President Trump to Tyrese to Kevin Hart, nobody was off limits. The night honored the celebrated hashtag #BlackGirlMagic with a spoken word tribute by comedian and actress Amanda Seales and “THE BET SOCIAL AWARDS” honored the founders of the Women’s March, organizers Tamika D. Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. Actor and comedian DC Young Fly was given the Social Verified Award by Executive Producer Mike Epps. Performing live, femcee Kash Doll ignited the crowd with her hit ‘For Everybody’, while YFN Lucci closed out the show with a medley including his mega-hit ‘Everyday We Lit’.”
