The BET AWARDS 12 was all kinds of wonderful at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last evening.
The star-studded show featured Samuel L. Jackson as host and a lineup of outstanding nominees, including Beyonce, Kanye West, Rihanna, Mary J. Blige, Drake, Trey Songz, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and Serena Williams. Of course, there was also the Whitney Tribute, which I’m sure got plenty a makeup look in the Auditorium smudged.
As usual, fashion emerged as one of the big highlights, and there are a couple observations I can’t help but mention.
Save the date.
February 12, 2012 will signal one of the biggest red-carpet events of next year’s awards season.
Wednesday night, The Recording Academy announced nominations for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, giving us a hint about who we’re likely to see attending the LIVE show next year.
No doubt an eclectic mix of the best and brightest in music in 2011, the nominee list is indicating that it’s shaping up to be an exciting red carpet for the 2012 show, with artists like Beyonce, Cee-Lo Green, Kanye West, Kelly Rowland, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Taylor Swift all getting nods.
Check out the full official Grammy nominee list here.
The ever-popular Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has announced Kanye West and Maroon 5 as its musical guests.
For a week and a half, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York churned out runway show after runway show.
Although there’s no denying the fascinating fashion that came down the catwalk, the celebrity-packed front rows had their own appeal.
It really does seem like this year’s Grammy Awards just ended.
Just a few weeks ago, we watched M.I.A. prance around the stage in her polka dot ensemble.
We also enjoyed Kanye and Estelle in their matching stage outfits…LOL.
But it’s time to think ahead.
Especially since CBS announced today that the 52nd ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS will take place on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010.
That’s considerably earlier than the usual airdate.
Next year will feature the customary GRAMMY Week of cultural events, including GRAMMY Style Studio (Yaaaayy!!) and the Clive Davis Pre-GRAMMY Gala (let’s hope it’s drama-free this year!!).
Can’t wait to see who’s rocking what already!
