2012 BET AWARDS PERFORMANCES: Kanye West, Usher, MMG, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj & More ROCK THE STAGE

Hitting the stage to perform "Climax," Usher was joined by music's finest from Kanye West and Maze to Nicki Minaj and Chante Moore who all graced the stage for the 2012 BET Awards.  Watch performance clips and check the pics inside.....

 

Tonight's 2012 BET Awards started off with a stellar performance by the G.O.O.D. Music Group who kicked off the show with their performance of "Mercy."  Lots of energy.  And Kanye's semi-freestyle was something for the books.

 

And the planned "surprise" from Hov during The Throne's acceptance speech (and hilariously interrupted 'Ye later).

 

Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Group also hit the stage and performed hits including "Bag Of Money."

Melanie Fiona killed her performance of "The Wrong Side Of Love."  Chick's peformance game has definitely been upgraded over the last couple of years.  One of my fave performances of the night honestly.

Another fave--Maze featuring Frankie Beverly performed on tv for the first time ever (WTF took so long--they are royalty!).  And a tribute to the group included performances by Joe, Tyrese and Faith Evans. 

A shirtless Chris Brown, who had half of his body painted like a robot, performed "Don't Wake Me Up" including a series of stunts and acrobatic moves.

Chante Moore did a hot tribute to Donna Summer where she performed "Bad Girls" and "Love To Love You Baby."  And don't miss the super high note she hits at the end.

Also.......

D'Angelo made an anticipated return to the stage where he performed "Untitled" & more.  Unfortunately....the shirt stayed on.  But he sounded like he never left.

Kevin Hart's Real Husbands of Hollywood returned starring Kevin and Samuel along with Anthony Anderson and Faizon Love.  Fun-ty. 

Nicki Minaj showcased her ASSets during a performance of "Beez In The Trap" where she was joined by a cadre of sexy female dancers.

For the Whitney Houston tribute, Monica performed "I Love The Lord" while Brandy sang "I'm Your Baby Tonight" & "I Wanna Dance With Somebody."  Loved her channeling young Whitney.  The ladies were followed by an emotional tribute from Nippy's brother Gary Houston and her mom Cissy Houston. Cissy left everyone in tears with her take on "Bridge Over Troubled Water."  Afterwards, Chaka Khan came out to perform "I'm Every Woman."  The tribute kicked off with an openng from Mariah.

Tyga also hit the stage to close out with "Rack City" and Cash Out.

Watch the 2012 BET AWARD performances here (will be updated throughout the night):

I really enjoyed the Whitney

I really enjoyed the Whitney tribute and Brandy dancing and singing. Good Job BranNew. I think we all know that Jay and 'nem' only showed up to get some undeserved awards. And let me add how funny it was to me when 'the throne' won their last award and Kanye hugged Bey and Kim and Jay looked like he didn't know what to do with Kim and just touched her arm..ha ha. Also, when Frankie Beverly and Mazed performed, clearly Frankie needed a little help and neither Tyrese or Joe knew the words to help the man and Tyrese, who I do love didn't know all the words to the song he sang. And thats all folks

That Jay and Kim moment was priceless. He gave her that awkward "I don't know you like that" pat on the arm. LOL.

The BET awards seemed more the hip hop awards, not enough R&B!

ITS NOT SO MUCH OF WHICH

ITS NOT SO MUCH OF WHICH GENRE IS MORE POPULAR. ITS THE FACT THAT THE SAME OL' ARTISTS IS BEING NOMINATED & WINNING FOR THE SAME CATEGORY. THERE'S NO NEED TO HAVE THE SAME DAMN PERSON IN ONE CATEGORY TWICE. ITS SO MANY DIFFERENT ARTISTS THAT PUT OUT MUSIC DURING THE YEAR, BUT THEY DONT GET THE RECOGNITION.

Unfortunately that is the prevalent music these days. I love R&B and miss it dearly, but today rap is more popular than R&B.

I totally agree with you.

I am really loving this new

I am really loving this new comment section , so mature and classy now that Natasha weeded out the classless minions amongst us. So good to see mature comments even the negative ones without all the crass, profanity, hurtful and disrespectful element. Thanks Natasha, you should have done this a long time ago. Thank you Jesus no more , Furious, X,Y and Z, Lisa Sub, Koko, OMG. its a beautiful thing.

Now you know they will just create new email addresses and be back at it again. Unless Natasha has a way to ban via IP address....but let's hope your words are true.

BET has just not gotten it

BET has just not gotten it right in years . This sub par talent show always leaves me anticipating that there is more to come and nothing ever arrives. Same format, same buffoonery disguised as comedy and a mix-match of fashion styles from overly dressed to underwhelming dress. I dunno, been over it , have not watched in years and this year will be the same.

The awards were ok. But I

The awards were ok. But I have to say...Monica and Melanie Fiona are UNAPPRECIATED!!! Those 2 are the truth!!!!!

So was the big surprise BET

So was the big surprise BET kept hyping up from Jay & Bey the simple fact that they showed up? Because if it was something else I missed it.
