I watched the recent BET (Black Entertainment Television) Awards Show at the Shrine Auditorium for two reasons. The first was obviously because I wanted to watch the tribute to the recently-departed Michael Jackson. The audience, including myself, was not disappointed. From Beyonce to the surprise appearance of Michael's sister Janet, the awards show touched the hearts of millions. The second reason that I tuned in is for the live acts. There is nothing like listening to singers in real time.
