The 2008 BET Award Winners

Well, there may not have been any robot suits at this year's BET Awards, but there was plenty of other entertainment, starting with Usher's pyrotechnic performance and continuing through T. Pain's transformation of the awards show into a circus. He told the audience to "ride with the ringleader," since "this industry is my circus."

There were some fierce performances from the female side as well, with Alicia Keys bringing up girl groups of yore, SWV, En Vogue and TLC, for a medley of the groups' hits, which definitely got "Waterfalls" stuck in my head for the foreseeable future. Kanye West took away two awards and performed with Young Jeezy. The actor and actress taking home awards this year were Halle Berry and Denzel Washington, and Al Green received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
