BET Music Awards Show hit home run

Soul Train’s Don Cornelius moment was a highlight, I think.  Later, as the Ojay’s stretched out, you could see the younger artists taking notes and learning some new things from watching them perform.

Imagine the pressure BET producers  must have been under to change plans so quickly and come back with a nice tribute to Michael Jackson’s legacy within two short days.   Add in the humanitarian segments and the Jacksons appearances and it was all good.

Jay-Z’s statement song about  auto-tune philosphy added an interesting twist.  That song  reminded me of what one of Michael Jackson’s producers had said during one of the many CNN / Larry King Live reports.  Michael had asked the producer “why can’t we make a new musical instrument and use that.”

Interesting thought!
