So, once again, Sistah Erykah Badu hosted the Soul Train Awards. This was her third year, and she still proves to be a great fit for the show. I won’t be surprised if she returns next year. This show was okay. It’s been better in previous years. I was willing to still give it a… Read More 2017 Soul Train Awards Recap
No need for a grand introduction. Let’s run this back: Bruno Mars opened the show the way an awards show should be opened. I never get tired of seeing him groove. He also won his first BET Award! French Montana performed a song I’ve never heard, but that’s not saying much because I usually listen… Read More BET Awards 2017: Old School Owned the Night!

I read on social media that a decent amount of people didn’t like the performances or maybe the majority of the performers, but I didn’t mind MOST of them. It could be because I’m familiar with most of the artists or at least their songs because I… Read More 2016 Billboard Music Awards: The Good, The Meh, & The WTF
Okay. Let me run this back. Taylor Swift opened the show. She opens every award show. I look for her to be the opening act for the BET Awards and Black Girls Rock next. Hell… Kendrick Lamar won the first award! And it looks like he shaved and got his hair freshly braided! The Weeknd… Read More GRAMMYs 2016
Me: I’m spent. The whole show didn’t do this to me, but the Andrae Crouch tribute took me to a special place – you know – the hiding place. (If you didn’t grow up in church, many of us call Jesus’ love our hiding place. Ask a friend.) Let’s run it back. Taraji P. Henson… Read More Celebration of Gospel 2016
