  • bree

    Danity Kane is actually a good group..their 2 albums are great.. it’s Flo Rida and Trina who are not musically inclined.. Rihanna does R&B? BET, get it together

  • Cage

    This is exactly why i don’t watch BET…. Thank god for premium channels.

    You have to be on something stronger than weed to walk around lookin like that….

  • KAM

    The music industry has lowered the bar sooooo much, they’ve made it easy as hell for Bey to be the so called “hottest chick in the game” and Jay and Kanye to be the reigning kings of Hip Hop because people like them have no real/serious competition. If they start giving REAL artists deals…well you already know!

  • Southern Belle 225

    You see, this is exactly why less and less people are watching the BET awards. Wack ass nominations. Some of them deserve to be up there but come on now, EVE? Missy? Flo-Rida? WTF has Eve done in recent time? Or Missy for that matter? SMH. Who in the hell is Day 26?

  • Lauren

    Morning all!

    Hey Bree!….I agree with you Rihanna is soooo POP not R&B!

  • Betty B

    Nah T-Pain is good. Evey single he produce has been a hit. Voice box or not he knows how to do what he does

  • Shawn08

    I hate I bought Danity Kane’s current CD it is whack! Day 26 CD is the sh*t, though! I like the decision to put them as best group. There are no real successful groups out right now.

  • Southern Belle 225

    @mssugarwalls and bree…hey yall!

    I forgot my comment about T-Pain. He looks so nasty and stank! How does his wife lay up with him every night? Now I can’t lie, he does put out some good jams but my goodness. He needs to just stay behind the scenes at all times! NEVER SHOW YOUR FACE AGAIN!!! LOL

  • Logic

    i heard T-Pain aka Faheem live several times in tallahassee before he got a deal and he does have a nice voice. if you can sound good at a tiny little lounge with a basic sound system, you have talent. he’s not using a voice box all of the time, i promise he sounds just like that.

  • Msbossy

    Playaz Circle did the song “Duffle Bag Boy”…it was Playaz Circle ft. Lil Wayne.

    @ Southern Belle and Bree- Goodmorning and T.G.I.F🙂

    Lol, given the names listed, Rihanna’s name looks so out of place for “Best Female R&B Artist.”

    Betty B(Check me out!)

    Nah T-Pain is good. Evey single he produce has been a hit. Voice box or not he knows how to do what he does

    Exactly.

  • sickofit

    He looks like Flavor Flav’s love child….EWWW

    T-Pain’s music is nice. It sounds better than the rest of the crap on the radio. Although, I do love Lyfe Jennings, his lyrics and vocals are off the chain.

  • Southern Belle 225

    @Re..hey honey!

  • KAM

    It’s not that hard to create a “hit” now days…music is horrible…anyone can make a “hit”, hence Soulja Boy’s nomination…and many more so called “hit” makers:-(

  • PRTTYBRWNGIRL

    whats even more than that is he got everybody else doing it too ..name your favorite song.. i bet it got some artist using that lol

  • Lauren

    Hey Ms. Southern Belle, how are you this Friday, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

  • bree

    Hey Lauren! Hello Re!

    i really don’t know why FLO RIDA is even invited to the awards show, let alone nominated.. he thinks the name FLO-RI-DA is only 2 syllables.. ahhhh i soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo loathe that guy!😦

  • PRTTYBRWNGIRL
