BET Honors 2014: Mariah Carey, Tamar Braxton, Jennifer Hudson & More Perform
The event, held earlier this month in Washington, D.C., honored Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy, Jr., Ice Cube, the late Nelson Mandela and others for their achievements in their respective fields. As we previously reported, it was a night of epic artistry.
Mimi sang her new single, ‘You’re Mine,’ atop a grand piano in an all-black gown, which revealed her enormous cleavage. We’re still amazed at how she was able to keep her twins from popping out. Afterward, she was greeted with a big hug from her daughter Monroe.
During the tribute to Berry Gordy, Tamar performed Diana Ross‘ classic ‘Do You Know Where You’re Going To?’ before rocking out to ‘Upside Down.’ Then fellow R&B singer Monae also performed an energetic rendition of Jackson 5’s ‘I Want You Back’ and ‘A-B-C.’
Elsewhere, J.Hud serenaded the crowd with a medley of Aretha Franklin hits during her tribute, including ‘Think’ and ‘Natural Woman.’ Speaking of Franklin, the Queen of Soul came out to perform a tribute to Nelson Mandela with a rendition of Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change Is Gonna Come.’
