2012 BET Award Winners

Last night’s BET Awards 2012 was pretty awesome.  We really enjoyed all the performances especially Cissy Houston’s heartfelt tribute to Whitney Houston, who died earlier this year as well as Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, who performed for the first time ever on national television, despite making music for more than 40 years.  Another highlight was Jay-Z’s mock interruption of Kanye West, which brought the crowd to cheers remembering Kanye’s Taylor Swift-gate a couple years back.

Check out our predictions in bold below along with actual winners in green.   Clearly, we did not see things the way BET saw them since our hit ratio was dismal this year.  How did you do?
