BET Awards: The hosts doing the most

Well we’ve come to the end of the road (oh how we wished for a Boyz II Men tribute) and at TMB we feel robbed. The hosts’ of the BET Awards seem to get cornier and cornier. No, this year wasn’t chicken-n-waffles corny (like last year’s host Chris Rock) but it had some major flops of its own. Although we love them, hosts’ Tracee Elis Ross and Anthony Anderson, seemed to bring a lackluster comedic flare to the 2015 BET awards.
As the Blackish stars of ABC, a sitcom about a couple raising young black children who try to remain hip and aware at the same time of their ever-evolving children, tried their hardest to be funny they seemed to be trying too hard. The two brought their corny sketches from ABC to BET and while cute for a while, it got a little annoying. From the intro, viewers knew we would be in for an interesting night.

From Tracee’s opening trapeze act, a glittered spiked body suit (that we assumed was a tribute to her mother, hey there were a lot of tributes tonight,) and finally a “Trap Queen” skit we didn’t know whether to change the channel or stick it out. Yes, Tracee pretended to be a “trap” (like a mouse trap) queen. Not to mention they even pulled the “out-of-touch” routine during a brief performance of Silento’s “Whip, Nae Nae” routine. We were so over it by the end of the show.

Despite some drawbacks in humor, there were a few pieces good pieces from their act. Anthony’s impersonation of Sam Smith was a complete surprise and it was hilarious! We’ve endured corny hosts in the past and Tracee and Anthony were definitely added to the list.
