Last Night,  marked the return of BET’s annual tribute to women of color ‘Black Girls Rock’.


The annual ceremony that celebrates women of color who have made impacts on their respective professional fields, now in it’s third year being televised on BET was an amazing show. Hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross & Regina King (for the second year) and taped  at New York City’s Loews Paradise Theatre, this year’s show honored actress Kerry Washington and songstresses Alicia Keys and Dionne Warwick among others, and featured performances from the likes of Ciara, Brandy, Keyshia Cole, India Arie and more. Check out the performances below ...

Alicia Keys performed ‘New Day’ and ‘Girl On Fire’.  Shout Out to former SFPL intern Shernita who can be seen performing/dancing right next to AK! She’s the brown skin beauty with the shaved head!

Brandy performed her newest single “Wildest Dreams” of her AMAZING album, Two Eleven. In, Stores. Now. 

Keyshia Cole gave us some great vocals on her new single, “Trust & Believe”.

Ciara danced her ass of during her performance featuring the Queen, Missy Elliott: She performed “One Woman Army,” “Sorry,” “One, Two, Step;” and brought out Missy for “9th Inning”.

The fellas did an AMAZING job, with this the first appearance of gentlemen on BGR! Step into Eric Benet, Anthony Hamilton & Luke James’ performance of “Wild Flower”.

And R&B Divas,  SWV ended the celebration with their hits “Right Here”, “Sp Into You” and “Weak”.
