The Queen Gets Award and Blesses the BET Awards with Performance.
It is important that we give our legends their roses when they can still smell them. Mary J Blige has been an icon in our industry for years. She is one of the best singers ever to go along with her prowess as a live performer and memorable dance routines. Mary easily had the best performance of the night and had assistance from Method Man and Lil Kim. Kim did her verse from ” I Can Love You”. Method Man did his verse from “You’re All I Need”. Rihanna presented Mary J Blige with the award and spoke on her influence on the industry and black female artists. Her performance was brilliant. We have seen legends do shows and remind us what they used to be. Mary stepped on stage and reminded us how great she still is.
Mary J. Blige is No Stranger to Awards.
An artist called the “Queen of R&B Soul” will be no stranger to bringing home trophies. She has won 9 Grammys,4 AMAs, and 12 Billboards. Also, she was nominated for 3 Golden Globes, the last one coming in 2017. Mary J is currently touring with Nas titled The Royalty Tour.
