The 2012 BET Awards premiered last night and this year’s show was one of the better ones that I’ve ever witnessed. However, there were a few moments that, in a few words, made my skin crawl. I mean moments that were so awkward, I felt like Kim Kardashian after Kanye and Jay-z won for video of the year.
From Jay-Z’s “Rainman” meets Pee Wee Herman fashion moment to Soulja Boy’s filthy nails, here’s 10 of the most uncomfortable moments of this year’s BET Awards. Oh and let me not forget poor Wale’s champagne-spilling celebratory moment, which deserved an honorable mention.
The Top Uncomfortable Moments At The BET Awards!
1. Jay-Z Snubs Kim K
Jay-Z & Kanye were awarded with the Video Of The Year, while Jigga embraced Watch The Throne partner, Kanye and his wife, Beyonce, he simply patted Kim on the arm.
2. Soulja Boy's Tears
Yes, Whitney was a legend and we all mourn her death, but the 15 seconds of reaction fame that Soulja Boy received during her tribute, dirty nails and all was just...a mess.
3. Samuel L. Jackson & Spike Lee's "Negroes In Paris"
Everything about this made my skin crawl. View at your own risk.
4. Chante Moore's Massive Weave
Ok, you're giving a tribute to Donna Summer--who's known for her larger-than-life curls, but Chante's hairstylist used way too many packs of wet & wavy.
5. Kanye Doesn't Kiss His Boo Kim After She Made Him Soul Food!
Kim K was busy tweeting about making her man Kanye soul food & when he won his first award of the night, the couple shared an awkward, "Should we kiss?" moment.
6. Bey, Jay, Ye & Kim K
This awkward double date was made even more awkward when Bey chose not to engage with Kim and even Jay & Ye gave the spotlight hog the cold shoulder. Kim's moment didn't quite happen the way I'm sure Kris Jenner planned it.
7. D'Angelo's & His Band Were At Two Different Gigs
While we were all glued to the screens to see if our favorite washboard abs still had it, we were confused by his band's lack of keeping up or even playing the same song. Way to ruin a good comeback fellas.
8. Nicki Minaj's "Step Your D*ck Up" Acceptance Speech
Nicki is unpredictable. When Roman came out at the end of her speech and said, "Step your dick up," we all wondered where the censor guy was. See the speech here: http://www.bet.com/video/betawards/2012/acceptance/nicki-minaj-gets-best-hip-hop-artist-award.html
9. Cissy Houston's Tribute To Whitney
As an iconic singer herself, Whitney Houston's mother Cissy sang a tribute to her fallen daughter, but most of her notes were...struggle notes. It was hard to type that considering I feel so disrespectful, but Cissy knew this moment was coming. Someone should have booked a few vocal refresher lessons, no?

10. Jay-Z's Rainman Meets Pee Wee Herman Suit
All Jigga needed was a red bow tie and he'd be the black Pee Wee Herman. I'm convinced his stylist has it out for him.
