Why Are We Looking For An Heir To Mike’s Throne???


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in Michael Jackson, WTF? Files | Posted on 29-06-2009

*ok deep deep heavy sigh* Beyonce is a beauty, seemingly inside and most definitely outside. She seems humble and appreciative of all that she’s accomplished. She gives 280% on the stage. Whether you are a fan of hers or not you cannot deny that fact, the woman means bitness! and comes to work to work. Sasha will not be issuing any refunds! best believe that….

Um but recently I became an observer in a twitter debate where it was suggested that she is now the heir to the musical icon throne now that my dear, sweet baby Michael J is gone….. to that I couldn’t help but be like

I give the B’ster all the props allowable by law but I promise you there is NO ONE to fill Mike’s shoes, no one! man, female, cat, dog or sea moose. He is it and all we’ll ever have. Are there talented people left? of course! But Mike kicked doors down and the beauty of it all was that he was just doing what he loved, it consumed his very being. His smile was electrifying when he was performing. It’s almost like we weren’t even there and while I’m sure he was happy to be a pioneer in the music world, I can assure you he wasn’t thinking “yeah let me put the best music out here coupled with impeccable dancing so that later I can afford Soulja Boy Tell Em the opportunity to be heard by the masses”. yeeeeeeaaaaa, NO! Everyone acknowledges that without him they’d be nothing, so why are we looking for another him? You won’t find one, Ever!

Beyonce gets me crunker than a mug when it comes time to shake my ass meat, no doubt! And I can even get with her sometimes when she gets on her slow mode shit, (I still cannot get on board with the acting, sorry guys!) But stop inserting her name in these sorts of debates and just let her talent stand alone for what it is. Heir to the MJ throne????…… BLASPHEMY!!!


Father of the Year Speaks


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson Tribute, WTF? Files, you are the father | Posted on 28-06-2009

Joseph Jackson spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon on the red carpet of the BET Awards.

Talk about a class act… “We just lost the biggest star in the world” instead of “I just lost my son.”

Something tells me this guy is just waiting for the checks to clear. Did he really just plug his record company?

I guess, everybody handles death differently. (I’m trying to be nice)


BET Awards: Fashion


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in BET Awards 2009, Fabulous Fashion, Fashion Tragedy | Posted on 28-06-2009

I have drawn the short stick and had to suffer through this entire show to report the Brewshyt fashions that are bubbling up in LA. I predicted lots of gloves, glitter and penny loafers in misguided homage to the King of Pop. And your cousins did not disappoint.

*Brew Note: In an homage to this cheezy ass show, no purchase of a Getty image was going down! This review is gonna be as bootleg as the show it reps!

One woman’s struggle for relevance continues… So, it wasn’t enough that we had to give this broad a gyno exam on Twitter? I would think the only way to go from that is to be oh, just slightly moe modest.. no? No?

These cries for attention are boring me. Get a hobby, volunteer or something. Shi


WTF in the CandyMan Striper hell? Kudos on getting the weight down..but you coulda premiered it in something a little less ”What magazine would you like to read, sir?” fashion, Ant’nee Blackblush Anderson.
And Brandy’s brother… dare I say? You look *gulp* Good!

Mario- I know times are tough and all..but did you really need to recycle some of the satiny tops of your Dancing With the Stars costumes?
Nice biceps doe.. they almost distract my cougar ass from that dome piece!

Finest homewrecker in the land (allegedly)!

Even in his ‘mourning’, Joe couldn’t keep his eyes off of her assets… seriously Joe- we’re going to have to have a talk!


Amber Rose.. hi…Boo… I like how you and Kanye are role playing tonight.
Let me guess…Construction worker and naughty 80′s nurse?

Amerie, I wanna like you.. I always have, really. But zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Plus.. the bootlike sandals–while hot– look well.. FUGGING HOT! It’s the end of June in LA for goodness sake. It’s like Beach on top, winter in NY down below. Meh.

And…as if on cue..look at this escaped troll from under the London Bridge. She looks like a casual toilet paper roll. Is it formal denim? I don’t ‘get it’.

Fire your stylist- stat- she hates you! Keri. Damn, Great body, pretty face.. yet you have on the happy dinosaur cocktail collection, stars and scales oh my!

AhhRaji.. boo.. this isn’t a real awards show. Look at you taking it all serious like, looking FABULOUS.

See ‘Raji- you could have just pulled out your mom’s old ’80s Business wear.
It’s like she was over this already.. I don’t blame you Ty.. I don’t.

From the Broke Black Barbie Collection? No seriously: Fuchsia, Glitter…POUF ANNND FEATHERS? Omanosir!

My favorite performance ‘get up’ of the evening. Ya girl Bee… in her PANTIES, sanging ole Catholic Spirituals. I guess she put on the see thru Christmas Tree skirt to be respectful? WTF?

Though, I guess it’s better than this, SOUNDED. Holy Screechin‘ cat of all Tributes. Why does this woman have a career?!


BET Awards: Play by Play


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in BET, BET Awards 2009 | Posted on 28-06-2009

7:58 pm: T-2 minutes til the start of the BET Awards and the highly-anticipated tribute to Michael Jackson. I’ve got my Jesus Juice ready and I’ve taken my pee break. Let’s get it!

8:00 pm: BET kicks off the show with a replay of MJ putting the cape on James Brown… cue to New Edition cranking that “I Want You Back/ABC” medley. Somewhere, our very own Vanessa is creaming her pannies!
P.S. Ralph Tresvant…where have you been and why are you the only one in tune?

8:02 pm: Somebody turn Bobby’s mic on… On second thought, DON’T!

8:03 pm: To quote Randy “American Idol” Jackson… “You’re sounding a lil pitchy, dawg!”

8:04 pm: Jamie Foxx comes out in a tight ass Thriller get-up. Not sure how I feel about this. Hmmm

8:06 pm: Jamie leads crowd in a mammasaymammasahmammakusah call and response and a series of jokes. Stephen Hill, didn’t you get my memo? Where the hell is Beyonce? Paging Chris Brown. Why is Jamie still on? Didn’t I tell ya’ll there’d be some Jamie coonin‘? Who’s next?

8:11 pm: Jamie announces his camel toe. Can I turn the channel yet?

8:12 pm: Jamie moonwalks. I’d rather see Chris Brown do “Beat It.” (oops…maybe he shouldn’t beat anything else)

8:13 pm: Tyra Banks enters (her forehead appears first though)

8:14 pm: LeBron James gets Best Athlete Award. Will he walk off without shaking Tyra’s hand like he did Orlando?

8:15 pm: Lil Wayne wins Best Hip Hop. But did Tyra just call him Lil Weezer?

8:20 pm: Maxwell “Pretty Wings” commercial airs. So what, it’s not a part of the show. Sue me!

8:21 pm: Jamie’s now wearing the Billie Jean get-up. Sadly, he didn’t get the cue that the show started.

8:22 pm: Keri Hilson takes the stage. Again, WHERE IS BEYONCE? I need more MJ tribute action.

8:25 pm: Keri does a mini-MJ tribute (or was she doing a tribute to the Fonz?). Epic fail? I dunno. I’m still hoping for more.

8:26 pm: Word to White Jesus, here comes Ne-Yo. And he took the hat off!

8:29 pm: Joe Jackson sighting. Doesn’t he kinda look like the devil?

8:34 pm: Bump back in with a mini MJ montage of his videos. Aside from Ne-Yo, the first 30 minutes were a snooze. See, you shoulda called me Stephen! And why is Anthony Anderson wearing that suit?

8:35 pm: KeKe Palmer inadvertently plugs her album with a “Who’s Loving You” verse. Blah. Can this Bobb’e Thompson boy just do the friggin‘ Nike puppet voice already?

8:36 pm: Are you forkin‘ kidding me. 36 minutes into the show and Jamie is singing the damn T-Pain Goose Nuvo song already? Ah well, at least Travis Barker was a bright spot.

8:47 pm: Who.the.fork.let.Soulja.Boy.in.the.Shrine.Auditorium?

8:48 pm: Can I gouge my eyes out now?

8:49 pm: Amber Rose sighting. Who has more hair, her or Kanye?

8:51 pm: Letoya Luckett on stage with Chaka Khan and Estelle. I didn’t think Mathew Knowles would allow Letoya inside the Shrine. Maybe Beyonce isn’t in the building yet.

8:52 pm: Jamie Foxx, T-Pain and T-Pain’s $400K “Big Ass Chain” win the best collaboration award. Quoting my boy Richard: “I Hope They Put T-Pain’s Big Ass Chain In MJ’s Casket…”
My sentiments exactly!

8:54 pm: Ne-Yo wins best male R&B artist and all he can say is “Damn, damn…” Oh, then he thanks White Jesus and Def Jam.

8:55 pm: Can Trey Songz read?

8:59 pm: BET honors the normal people who do good work. Somehow, I can’t buy this with Jamie wearing the Beat It jacket and after he just blamed it on the Goose.

9:00 pm: Finally! Beyonce!

9:01 pm: Beyonce does the Ave Maria without PANTS? WTF?

9:02 pm: I’m getting up right now to send a care package of pants to Beyonce, Lady GaGa and Katy Perry.

9:04 pm: Did Beyonce clear that song with the pet commercial and Sarah McLachlan?

9:05 pm: That was beautiful, B! Is that Italian (read: EYE-talian)?
Was she a bride, an angel, MJ’s angel taking him to Heaven? I’m lost…

9:11 pm: Jamie tosses to a “movie” promo that took a few shots at Tyler Perry and features Martin Lawrence and Jamie Foxx in their Shenehneh and Wanda drag. Clearly, BET put a lot of pre-production into the show and they don’t want to lose their money by just doing a full-on MJ tribute.

9:13 pm: Arsenio Hall sighting, in the audience though.

9:14 pm: I’m now wishing Monique was hosting this show.
Mary Mary takes the stage. Them girls got some hips. (Don’t strike me White Jesus)

9:16 pm: Aww shucks, King Queen Latifah’s in the building with Mary Mary! And she’s rapping, not doing that sangin‘ thing.
Wait, did dude just thank his SEARS co-workers? *Dead!*

9:21 pm: MC Lyte doing the voice over. Aww shucks, paychecks still coming in!
Nichelle Nichols is in the ladies room so Zoe Saldana has to present the award by herself. $20 bucks says Nichelle was in there getting it onnnnn with Captain James T. Kirk!

9:23 pm: Taraji P. Henson wins best actress award. Is this show on speed or something? We don’t even get the full list of nominees? Can we get a fullscreen list or something? Is Taraji rockin‘ a mullet? Is it that hard out there for a pimp?

9:25 pm: Keri Hilson wins best new artist. Something tells me we weren’t supposed to hear that snippet of her song with the words “big shit poppin‘”. Ooops, BET!

9:27 pm: Jamie sings that independent song. I’m sorry, is this the Jamie Foxx show?
Here comes Ne-Yo with that bald head again. This reminds me of the first time I saw LL Cool J’s head and wanted him to put the hat back on.
Fabolous joins the party. Every time I see him, I check to see if that tooth’s been fixed…….. FAIL!

9:30 pm: Oh, NOW Ne-Yo thanks MJ. It’s all good Mr. Yo. Singing Lady In My Life was enough.

9:31 pm: Keith Sweat is still begging. Keith Sweat still has Duke curl products in his hair. Some things never change.

9:33 pm: Guy takes the stage. That Crazy Legs dude is still dancing, but what the heck happened to Aaron Hall’s voice? Does he smoke?

9:34 pm: Bell Biv DeVoe performing Poison. Vanessa’s poopin‘ her pants! Somewhere Bobby Brown is mad these dudes get to perform twice.
Does this mean that New Jack Swing stuff is making a comeback?
What’s up, Troop can’t get no love? Mamacita

9:42 pm: The Real Housewives of Atlanta without Kim? Was she “tardy to the party?” Epic fail!
No words for you Mr. Ray J.

9:43 pm: Uh, could we get an intro for Ciara? Who signed off on her singing a ballad?

9:45 pm: Paula Patton & Mike Epps. Where’s Robin Thicke? Can we see him?
Aww shucks, Monica & Keyshia Cole. Let the party begin! Is Keyshia wearing a Peggy Bundy outfit?
I sure hope those Monica stans come back here and comment!
Eh, I preferred this song more when it was called “The Boy Is Mine.”

9:51 pm: Let me get a sip of this Jesus Juice. Where the heck is Chris Brown already? I’m ready for a real MJ performance.

9:55 pm: Jamie tells the story of the Black mayor of Philadelphia, MS but the dude doesn’t get to talk. Womp, womp.

9:57 pm: Jeremy Piven & Marlon Wayans present best female R&B artist but, first, they must give a shout out to Joe Jackson. Beyonce wins.
Joe Jackson takes a good look at Beyonce’s rump as she walks to the stage. You ain’t slick Joe!

10:00 pm: Jay-Z kills Autotune!!!!!!!!! Swagger on 100 now that he cut that awful Michael Evans ‘fro.
Funny he’s killing Autotune after Jamie and T-Pain won for it tonight.
Sidebar: Jazmine Sullivan is doing cotton commercials? A check is a check…

10:09 pm: Crazed fans in the nosebleed seats take out the BET camera man. Hey, everyone needs some shine, I guess.

10:10 pm: Day 26 introduces Don Cornelius. I thought he was doing time for wife beating?
Suddenly, this show just earned 15 extra minutes because you know Don can’t say a sentence in 5 minutes.

10:12 pm: Al Sharpton sighting. Damn, his edges are tighter than mine. Paging a perm…paging a relaxer…stat!

10:13 pm: Don Cornelius begins the O’Jays tribute.

10:15 pm: TEVIN CAMPBELL!!!
Should we go get Kathy Griffin and the rest of the D list?

10:17 pm: Johnny Gill left Eddie Murphy’s guest house long enough to join Trey Songz and Tyrese to tribute the young O’Jays.
Sidebar: This Trey kid is kinda sexay. You don’t need to be able to read to be my man. I’m just sayin‘…

10:22 pm: Oh shucks, they’re singing Stairway To Heaven… I think I just heard panties drop across the street!

10:27 pm: And Don Cornelius is still talking!
Finally, the O’Jays take the stage. Uh, why is the new O’Jay allowed to talk. Get your Michelle Williams on and let Eddie and Walter talk.
Did Walter just thank Donnie Simpson? Donnie don’t play no O’Jays music anymore.

10:30 pm: Eddie Levert takes the stage. Is he gonna talk about Gerald and Sean? Grab my tissues. Please don’t make me cry.

10:31 pm: Eddie said “shit”… haaa. Too late BET censors!
What, no mention of your kids?

10:33 pm: The Mighty O’Jays take the stage. They’re doing Let Me Make Love To Ya Baby. I think I may have been conceived to this song. I’m just sayin‘…
Now they’re doing For The Love of Money. Doesn’t Donald Trump own this song now?

10:37 pm: Norwood Young & Niecy Nash sighting. Is she wearing gold lame?

10:43 pm: Johnny Gill tells his story of first meeting MJ back at the Grammy’s at an afterparty. How you doin‘?

10:47 pm: Sherri Shepard and Idris Elba introduce Debra Lee but first, Idris sends a prayer to Catherine Jackson. The man has class and a sexy accent.

10:49 pm: Debra Lee gives props to Stephen Hill, BET employees and celebrities for putting this BET Awards show together in honor of MJ. Mmmm, I’m not convinced yet.

10:52 pm: Debra announced Wyclef Jean and Mashonda’s husband stealer Alicia Keys will get the humanitarian award. Alica won for her work in Africa. Wyclef won for his work in Haiti. He also reminded us he came from a hut.
Sidebar: Where are they hiding Maxwell?

11:06 pm: Taraji is back. Tyrese thinks he’s Baby Boy still. And, scene…

11:08 pm: Taraji and Tyrese present the viewer’s choice award to T.I. and Rihanna for Live Your Life. T.I.’s babymamma Tiny accepts it. I’m not even gonna say anything. Sigh.

11:10 pm: Now Ving Rhames wants to get in on the re-creation of Baby Boy. I’m over already. Why couldn’t he come out butterball nekkid like he did in the movie? Then, I’d have something to blog about.
Uh, someone tell Ving these are not the BET Video Awards.
Beyonce wins video of the year for Single Ladies. Aww, a little peck for Mr. Carter.

11:13 pm: Jamie plugs his tour. But you already knew he was going to do that, right?

11:14 pm: Ok, Maxwell. I can die now.

Sorry, blog break.

11:20 pm:
Okay, I’m back. All systems shut down when Maxwell is on. Even my Momma called me. Oh, that man and his Pretty Wings (now that’s how you do falling feathers, take note Beyonce!)

11:24 pm: More real people get awards (Food From The Hood organization) but again, we don’t get any comments from them.

11:25 pm: Drake performs with Lil Wayne and the rest of those Cash Money people. I’m sorry dude, you were on DeGrassi. I can’t with you.

11:26 pm: Lil Mama sighting. Wonder where she got that ponytail? She should return it.

11:27 pm: BET censors suck. I really did not need to hear Lil Wayne tell me he had that “dope dick.” Eww… I need a shower.

11:31 pm: Mom calls me and I quote: “Now this is some filth…are those girls underage?”

11:37 pm: Aww damn. Tearjerker. Here comes Janet Jackson! She says to the audience, Michael was an icon. To her, he was family. God is surely lifting her up. She looks strong.

11:39 pm: Jamie & Ne-Yo sing I’ll Be There. Touching moment. But are there any other crooners there besides Jamie? Where’s Mariah?
Ne-Yo touches my heart. I love that guy. He gets the magnitude of this moment.

11:42 pm: Show ends.

I’m left feeling a little duped. While there were several songs done in tribute to Michael and performers like Keri Hilson and Ciara gave a nod to him with their wardrobe, I just wanted to see a full on Michael Jackson moment. Breaking news catches the unprepared with their pants down. Perhaps that was the case here? Maybe I just expected too much for 3 days of preparation. I know how hard it is to pull off breaking news, so decent job BET. I think?!?

Good night!


BET Awards: Performances


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in BET, Performances | Posted on 28-06-2009

Ne-yo and Jamie Foxx (*again*) singing, “I’ll Be There”…this was a nice way to end the show. Should it have followed, “Always Strapped?” Um, no…but hey somethings are our of our control. Next up Jamie & Ne-Yo Collaboration, “Best of Both Worlds: We Run BET”.

Drake singing “Best I Ever Had”…wearing a Kanye college dropout collection sweater. Bringing light-skinned back again. No chains, just a beaded necklace, nice style. He has a thick ass neck. I like that he’s not all jumping around on stage…uh oh, cue the prayin mantis, Weezy F. Makedembabies. Dang, can’t hear half the song because of sensors. We know the words BET, now you want to sensor? Hold up. Rapper dude with a hot leather jacket, dude with a lumberjack. Lots of confusion on this stage. Hold it down Drake. They are going to have to throw away Weezy’s mic after this performance because it cannot be used again…ever! I liked that they brought all types of girls on the stage not just LSLH. Cue Baby on stage.. it’s taking a turn for the worse..rapping “Always Strapped” Did they really just say “Rest in Peace MJ” then say the N-word in the next sentence? Really? Gonna have to throw Baby’s mic away too. This is pure ass!

I’m awake now….MAXWELL!!!! Singing “Pretty Wings”..still a cutie, wish he grew his hair long again. Just him and smoke on stage. He really doesn’t need anything else. This is a nice song. Confetti fallin’ are these “wings”? Nice effect, ‘cept they keep hittin’ him in his dome. Couple of spins. That’s some grown man ish right dere Maxi! Paid homage to MJ at the end. Yes!!!! 10 out of 10. Let’s put this puppy to bed…please.

The O’Jays — “Let Me Make Love To You”..okay I can’t really talk about the O’Jays because old folks are off limits. Eddie can do no wrong anyway. Bless his heart. Next!

Tevin Campbell “Forever Mine” wow…he looks road hard and hung up wet. Poor thing. He still sounds better than a lot of the other acts tonight. He’s got that blunt smokin’ lips. Stepping from side to side. I guess that’s all we’re going to get huh TC? He’s only on for a quick minute before he introduces Trey Songs, Tyrese, Johnny Gill. I guess he’s in the bathroom smoking by now. They’re singing “Backstabbers”. All dressed in all black. I’m confused. Isn’t this supposed to be about Mike? WTF are you singing the O-Jays? Is there some connection that I’m missing? They sound okay. Johnny Gill mushes his lips together like an old man who wants more jello.

Jay-Z, “Death to Autotune”…okay must admit I’m biased about this because this is my husband in my mind. He shut it down very simple. Not brewchies dancing, no hype man, just him bringin’ it. B was on stage getting her award when Jamie escorted her back to her seat instead of her walking off to the back. He told her something exciting was about to happen and that’s when Jay popped on stage. I was wondering where we was. 10 out of 10. This show can end now.

Keyshia Cole & Monica — Singing, “When Hoodrats Attack”….just kidding. Singing whatever their new song is. Monica is full dominatrix gear and Keshia in a hotpink picnic outfit. Um, they’re both talented..and need to stroll down a different musical road. I’m not feeling this. Standing at the top of some steps? For what? Oh, I get it, the stage is rotating. Wowzer! Keyshia legs look like yellow pixie sticks.

Ciara – I think. Gag me with a hot poker. Singing “Heal the World”…someone heal her voice, stat! Glad they kept that one short.

BBD singing “Poison” …..um yes, I could use some right about now. All the old heads in the crowd are trying to do the wrecks ‘n effect. This song is still the shyt though. Ronnie still looks the same. Here come the Brewchies. Actually this performance isn’t that bad. It has some energy. Please don’t ask the crowd to sing along, clearly they’re not. Why are you back on the stage Ne-Yo?

Keeping with the old man in the club theme…Here comes Aaron Hall singing “I Like”….pass the tea and honey to his ass cuz he sounds like he swallowed a hair ball from Rick Ross’ beard. No LeBron isn’t doing the “shake and bake” to this.

Old man in the club sighting number #7 Keith Sweat and his whiny ass singing “I Wanna”. He sounds like ass. Shiny suit and S-curl in effect. Holding his imagination. Who is the little Buckwheat lookin’ dude on stage with him? This sucks.

Negro Vu? Nope, it’s Jamie Foxx…again. This time he’s with Ne-yo so I’ll forgive his frequent performances. Now he’s at a piano. This dude is a freakin’ Prince tonight. They’re singing “Independent” remix. Love this song. Again with the ass and the smoke! Ballet? Really? No more gloves people, seriously. Neyo has a red ones. Fabo with a puffy vest making me hot. This is boring….zzzzzzzzz…

Mary Mary – singing “God in Me”. I noticed not a lot of people standing on this one. Heathens!!!! Queen Latifah with the long weave rapping, very nice. I like this song and I can’t talk about another Christian on a Sunday. Next!

Uh oh — B’s in the house, cue fan machine. Singing Ave Maria..wait is someone getting married? Wonder woman get up. That’s still my girl and at least she can sang like the good Creole she is. Uh oh. They’re giving her sea amoeba for a skirt. It looks like a placebo. What was the point? Ummmm, I do like this B, not feeling this one bit..now she’s singing that background song for the third world pet adoption commercial. I’ve got the sads. Where’s the razor? Geeze, can you end on Freakum dress? Now it’s snowing. This is eerie as fuck. This is over their heads B. The crowd is probably like Ava who? Who dat?

Soujah Boy Tell Em — not even sure if I spelled his name right, who gives a fuck. Rapping “Turn My Swag On”. What is this low-budget special effect bullshyt? Is that a leather vest? No sir. He took off his vest and lumberjacket. Bird chest. Pants hangin off his ass. Stupid ass. He looks 12 1/2. Camera man can you stop fast zooming, you’re making me dizzy as hell. All that zooming and his jumping is not the biz. Uh oh, the porch monkey’s off the porch. He’s in the crowd, gave Kanye dap. Back on stage and ran off. I give him a 2 1/2.

Jamie Foxx –Singing “Blame It”…came out in all white sweat suit, MJ shirt, brewchies in the background, shameless plug…album cover on a big as bottle of champagne. Lots of smoke and ass. Tyra Banks knows the words to this? WTF? Kayne and his video ho enjoy this song too? Here come the minstrel show that is Snopp wearing a hot ass leather down to his knees. Jamie’s a little boring on stage. Here comes T-Pain running up the aisle with his BIG ASS CHAIN. He’s sporting a Rick Ross stinky beady beard. I know those mics smell like death and ass. All Shyt!!! Travis Baker is on the drums??!!!! It’s about to get stupid now. He’s dope. Jamie has a guitar. He really thinks he’s a rock star. Didn’t Jay do this already?

Ne-yo — Singing “Lady in My Life” sans hat. Egghead need steze but that boy can blow…er…sing! I like Ne-yo ever ever since he told that chubby girl who liked cake that she should lose a few because the biz was shallow as hell. He keeps it real. Back to his noggin, it’s big and I can’t concentrate. Kept it short and sweet. Goodbye!

Keri Hilson — She came out on a motorcycle complete with a smoke machine. Rihanna “Bad Girl” steze. Starting singing “Turing me on” then “Knock You Down” , white glittery Michael Jackson socks, cuffed jeans, just surfed into the crowd, that was kind of hot but what if they let her drop? Her outfit is a little plain though. Whole set is tough girl “West Side Story” lookin’….reeks of dykeness…hmmmmm. She’s taking off her jacket, doing a little MJ tribute, cute but uhhhh ohhhh she’s going rogue, asking the crowd to repeat “when it comes around…” (*crickets*) I’ll give her 5 Brews out of 10.

New Edition MJ Tribute — Oh yeah!!! Old men in the club unite! Started singing “Oh Baby Give Me One More Chance”. Their moves are nice, segued into “ABC”. Good opening of the show, but these mofos were probably fighting like hell until the curtains rose. Bobbayyyyyyy, your mouf is still crooked. Still good to see them all together. I used to love Ralph. He’s looking a little skeletor like. Struggling on some of the notes. I think they’re getting winded…

Day 26 — Singing “I’m A Put It On Her”….no I’m a turn this off. I can’t really say anything bad about these dudes.. Well yes I can. I guess corny nerd glasses are the theme because Mike is looking really “what you talkin’ about Willis” with his. Why is Rocsi’s accent so freak fake? Que is rocking one glove with his bitchass. Uh, they cut them off, fade to black, show time!

Jeremih singing “Birthday Sex” if these pre-show minstrel acts are any indication of how the show is going to go then we are in trouble…trouble. Again with the backup dancers? I’m mean damn, straight from the stroll to the stage. People please!

Pleasure P — Coonin’ to “Boyfriend Number 2″. What is with the twin backup dancers theme? Their jumpsuits are hot though. Uh oh, he’s giving a shout out to MJ, while singing that shitastical song? Um, no sir!!!

First up — LeToya Luckett. I really like this chick because she refuses to bow dow to the Beyonce’s machine. But her performance during the pre-show, not so much. LeToya sang “Not Anymore” and I wasn’t feeling the sub-par dance routine or her twin backup brewchies at all. She’s hot though, no denying that. There’s just really no room for her in this “Beyonce-Rihanna world” as Charlemagne put it.
