Chris Brown wins big at BET Awards

For me the BET awards lacked something. The performances were ok. It was way too much bleeping out because of profanity. There were some great performances like: Jill Scott, Pastor Shirley Ceaser, Ledisi, even After 7 and the cast from the Five Heartbeats. I do have to admit that Kevin Hart was a good host. I was a little suspect at first, but he pulled it out. And what was CeeLo on? He started out ok and then he went left on his tribute to Patti LaBelle when even he had to be bleeped out. Completely unnecessary.

The BET Awards honor various arts, but Sunday's ceremony was all about the music.

There were more performances than awards during the 3½-hour show at the Shrine Auditorium, where singer Chris Brown and rappers Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and DJ Khaled did double-duty, each taking the stage twice to perform.

Brown made a few extra trips to the stage as the night's big winner. The 21-year-old won four awards, adding momentum to a comeback that began with his Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards last year and continued with his album, "F.A.M.E."

Brown has been working to repair his image since he pleaded guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He hit a stumbling block this year when he tore up his dressing room after an appearance on "Good Morning America."

He was named best male R&B artist and won best collaboration for his song "Look At Me Now" with Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. The three performed together Sunday as part of a medley of Brown's songs.

"Public-speaking is not my strong suit," he said, thanking BET and his fans before passing the microphone to Wayne, who expressed gratitude to God, his fans and Brown for including him on the track.

Earlier in the ceremony, Brown also thanked his fans and the network, saying, "I appreciate all the support. I know it's been a long road, so I appreciate every blessing in front of me."
