Last night the 2016 BET Honors was definitely one of the greatest ones to date!
And we’re not just saying that because our very own Rae Holliday was honored in BET’s inaugural segment, #NextInClass in Entertainment.
BET has been doing an exceptional job with their award shows lately, just a few short weeks ago they produced the beautifully executed The ABFF Awards: A Celebration Of Hollywood hosted by Mike Epps. The tagline for the Honors this year was WHAT EXTRAORDINARY LOOKS LIKE and BET didn’t disappoint in any way shape or form.
BET welcomed ARSENIO HALL as this years host for THE BET HONORS, celebrating iconic diva PATTI LABELLE, former US Attorney General ERIC HOLDER,music mogul L.A. REID, Empire creator and filmmaker LEE DANIELS, and philanthropist MELLODY HOBSON.
And because BET celebrates Black excellence all the time, you know the show was phenomenal!
Step into appearances and tributes by JUSSIE SMOLLETT, FANTASIA, LEDISI, TONI BRAXTON, USHER, and many more.
