While the attention was shared by all of the celebrities that graced the 2012 BET Awards red carpet, or performed on the stage during the pre-show; during the show the camera time was not at all shared equally. Actually, it was like watching “The Throne”. The camera man (who we are sure will no longer be employed after tonight), was sure to focus in on the big three: Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye.
Of course Beyonce, who looked absolutely beautiful in a yellow gown, was joined to her right by her sister, Solange in pink, and her beau. Kim Kardashian was present, seated right next to her man Kanye, looking fabulous in body-con white gown with a plunging back. You know, white appears to be her favorite color these days. Nicki got a great seat too, landing one right next to the leader of the Kardashian clan.
The powerful group took in the laughs of Samuel Jackson and Kevin heart as well as the performances of Usher, Frankie J, Maze and Chris Brown and shared in the tears of the Whitney Houston tribute (which was absolutely beautiful. Didn’t Monica sanggg that song?). In light of the popular belief that Beyonce and Kim Kardshian are beefing, they seemed to make sure everyone knew they weren’t by sharing hugs and smiles throughout the night. These ladies are better than that, after all the kings have to have their kings, right?
I must end by saying that this year’s BET Awards has been much better than those of the last few years. I am very proud of that. Oh, and while you’re here; take a look at some more great pics from the show and the red carpet tonight.

Wendy Raquel Robinson. I’m beginning to think yellow was the ‘it’ color tonight. Love it!
