    Goat

  • Jepaa

  • damn

    Keyshia was horrible for real

  • B.Dot

  • http://eminem50cent.ru/ 50 Cent

    Cool!!!

  • MARCUS

    KEYSHIA COLE FUCKED THIS SONG UPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP.. SHE SOUNDED A HOT MESS..

    AND EMINE CAN LYRICALLY RAP.. BUT HE CANT PERFOMR WORTH SHIT.. HE’S COLD AT HEART ON STAGE. U CAN TELL HE THINKS ABOUT HOW THE WORDING COMES OUT… INSTEAD OF JUST KILLIN IT.

  • meThATSwho

    LOL the crowd was not feelin EM… If this was the MTV awards he might have got a better reaction.

  • Thank Me Hater

    Was something wrong with his mic?

  • meThATSwho

    no em just always lip syncs

  • Everybody Hates Chris

    I’m almost positive they gave Keyshia Cole the lyrics to the song 5 minutes before their performance. She just sounded off the entire time.

  • Thank Me Hater

    @meThATSwho naw I see now. People confuse that with a playback…..which everyone uses. Most of the time you’ll here the playback in the background for artists performing live….especially if there’s a chorus. Lip syncing is NOT saying the words at all and just letting the track go. That’s not what he’s doing.

  • Keyshia’s Puss

    @methatswho He got a standing ovation at the end….but they weren’t feelin him though

  • I m recovering

    to the pussy _ meThATSwho
    how u can say they did not felt EM …..if u cut the sound off u will say that will smith is performing KNOCK YOUR HEAD every body was felling EM…….HE is lyrically insane

    KNOCK YOUR HEAD BITCH SHADY IS IN THE HOUSE
    BY THE WAY I M BLACK AND I WAS FELLING SO MUCH HIS PERFOMANCE

  • Pancer

    em not lip syncs .. just the sound is crawl in the video..

  • The Truth

    @ Thank Me Hater

    Kanye didnt use a playback on his shit. Matter of fact B.O.B didnt even use a playback on the same performance. So Em has no excuse for rapping over his over vocals, when other rappers on the same bill dont do it

  • meThATSwho

    @I m recovering… we must not have been watching the same awards… That crowd was DEAD when em performed… nobody knew the words… they claped at the end because they were glad is was over… His single is SUPER corney… not made for the BET awards.. I am not hating on EM just stating fact.

  • GTFO

    GOAT shaaaaaady

  • So Icy Boi!

    Keyshia Cole a soul singer not a pop singer thats why it didnt sound right…and Eminen performance was trash like always …

  • meThATSwho

    Em had the worst performance of the night…

  • Everybody Hates Chris

    @The Truth

    Eminem’s lyrics are slightly more complex than what Kanye and B.O.B. are doing. Nobody’s pressing rewind on Kanye, or even B.O.B., tracks cause they heard a sick metaphor.

    ..you know it’s true.

  • fuck you

    ” haters can make like bees with no stingers, and drop dead “

  • Thank Me Hater

    @The Truth He does if there is a singing chorus and he can’t sing

  • LOL

    @meThATSwho hmmmm if anyone in the crowd watched the NBA finals….they knew some of the words….HAHAHAHAHA

  • The Truth

    @ Everybody Hates Chris

    There is nothing “complex” about his lyrics on Not Afriad or Airplanes, and even if they were, that still has nothing to do with his shitty stage performance. Stop pulling shit out of thin air to make excuses for him

  • ben

    clapping bc it was over? you should get on stage to accept your hater award immediately bc your time has officially come….wow? listen to yourself you complete jerk off, you sound like you were born to hate on sucessful people, congrats on having gods gift you douche bag

  • Midnite!

    Just watched the performance and for all the haters saying stupid shit like “Nobody was feeling Em”is a straight blind motherfucker!They were singing along with his lyrics you idiots!Hate all you want but,all the rappers respect him and know how nice he is!He gave a great performance and i will be in the BX in September to witness 2 legends tear shit up!Shady MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!Don’t be upset he smashed Drakes bullshit R&B album!EAT A FAT DICK!!!!This is the year of RECOVERY!!!!!

  • something else

    dude i want to see almost famous live

  • Zilla

    @LOL LMAO!!! RIGHT!! I’m not gonna sit here and argue about one performance. Yes ladies and gentlemen a white boy is in the rap game and he’s top 10 lyricist. Deal with that shit!! I’m tired of this random hate shit aimed at Em…..AND Jay AND Kanye for that matter. I don’t really mess with Drake but give him respect. As far as revenue and attracting other genres to the rap game, they are doing it by themselves. “clap for em”

  • Zilla

    @The Truth you wanna study his lyrics for Not Afraid?

  • Thank Me Hater

    When Jay, Em, Outkast, Kanye, stop rapping R.I.P. rap record sales

  • mikey

    the crowd was lovin not afraid

  • The REAL Truth

    Eminem doesn’t just make music for just black people. He has to please all genres. He’s gotta please fans in Japan, Ireland, Sweden, Brazil etc. He’s international. I don’t think people understand that. I doubt Em is concerned if he got people at the BET awards hyped….even though he did.

  • Nickey Black

    EM’s performance was good. B o b and Keesha were excellent. MRs. Cole sounded great. I hate cuz Jay z wasn’t their, it would have turned into a party foreal

    btw Keys is still sexy pregnate

  • Stu

    @ Everyone
    Firstly, What do you expect from a stage performance??
    For the type of song, it was an okay performance.. These kind of songs don’t require the artists jumping up and down all over the stage like Diddy’s Hello, Good morning song. The audience feeling the song is debatable. Some did, some didn’t. Believe it or not, some people in that audience still don’t like Slim.

    Secondly. did you read Em’s billboard interview?? This guy is basically performing on stage sober. something he has never done in the past. Practically every stage performer (mostly rappers) takes some kind of alcoholic to get a lil high before they go in front of a large audience. Try telling someone like snoop dogg to do a stage performance sober and see how it turns out

  • gunsdrugsbitches

    why the fuck was he doing Not Afraid on the BET AWARDS ?
    cmon son… that shit aint made for that type of crowd… its a cool song… but cmon … he was a million times better off doing Crack a Bottle or Wont Back Down. And yea the song is corny. Love Em… but not feeling Recovery that much.
    Ice Cube should have performed instead

  • Pingback: DaShadySpot.com

  • phil

    No I admit, the crowd wasn’t down with not afraid. Most likely because it’s not a club hit, doesn’t talk about fried chicken, or wasn’t the norm for them. If he had done any other song off the album (excluding WTP, I don’t even count that shit), they would have thought it was dope.

  • mac DIESEL

    B.O.B PERFORMANCE WIT KEISHA COLE WAS PRETTY GOOD!!!! EMINEM STILL CAN’T PERFORM ON STAGE!!!! STIFF ASS CRACKA!!!! HA!!!!

    SIDEBAR: FINALLY HEARD THE “RECOVERY” ALBUM!!!! IT’S A POP MUSIC INFESTED ALBUM!!!! IT’S SO FUCKIN’ POP!!!! AND MOST OF THE BEATS ARE LAME!!!! BUT “COLD WIND BLOWS” IS MY SHIT THOU!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • http://thisis.com j305

    i thought he did good, lol its funny i think it was supposed to be a surprise that he was gonna be there cuz i think t.i was hyping him up and all of a sudden stopped.

  • ???? still best rite now!!

    @phil

    So I guess the Haiti tribute, El Debarge and MJ tribute were fried chicken club anthems??

    stfu you ignorant bastard!!!

    Em has always been a poor live performer flatout! so what if hes white, just face it u Stans…

  • Nickey Black

    @ best rite now …. Yeah El Debarge was a shocker but murked it for the old schoolers like me

  • meThATSwho

    LOL @ the EM dick suckers.. you guys can’t even admit when your idol has a FLOP performance… You guys make hella excuses for him… He isn’t the GOAT — GTFOHWTBS ( GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE WITH THAT BULLSHIT) HE IS the BEST white rapper… I will give you that… but he has dropped 3 trash albums in a row….

    @ The REAL Truth… you sound stupid… A MF in Japan doesn’t know our slang or lyrics… they listen to the beat… Do you think people in Japan understood 2pac’s struggle? Hell no.

    If he’s your favorite, that cool but don’t force him on everybody like he’s some godsend… Dude is like a 7 outta 10…

    Wayne is waaaaaaaaay harder than em….
    Jay Z is more relevant
    Young Jeezy makes better songs…
    Royce 5’9 would eat EM alive….

    Am I lying?

  • The REAL Truth

    Slim shady is the only rapper that can have a grown man’s ass in his face, pick on a married diva and put on a dress….and still be considered one of the greatest rappers on earth in a genre that has that tough guy appeal

  • Thank Me Hater

    @methatswho damn you’re right

  • Thank Me Hater

    @methatswho except for everything you just said

  • Thank Me Hater

    @mac DIESEL you a bitch and not even for your comments….just in general

  • meThATSwho

    @ Thank Me Hater…. LOL u r funny

  • E-Hustle

    Are all of you hatin muvafuckaz that blind to not notice as soon as Em’s verse for Paper Plains came on the ENTIRE crowd stood up and never sat down until Not Afraid was over!?
    The damn crowd was shown on the fuckin TV when he came out and ever ones asses was up.
    I will agree that Not Afraid was the wrong song if your looking for people to wave there hands, but this joint is in the record books of Billboard as a song that debuted #1 on the charters. Only a dozen ever in history have ever done that.
    The song is an inspirational joint. Stop the fuckin gay hating. Nigga bout to give all you fuckers a tight face come Wednesday we he murdered the charts at #1 with well over 700k albums song.

    Ending this, I would have preferred to see him perform No Love, they had Waynes visuals for the video they will release later already recorded so they could have put that on a video screen, em come do his verse and finish it off with Won’t Back Down. That should get all you racist faggits excited since that is a song that would have every muvafucka in that place hopping up and down.

  • KillarT

    Wow… I must be watching a different video, cause all I see is the audience going crazy when Em appears. The only one who sounds terrible here is Keyshia Cole, who murdered (in a bad way) this song… You’re a bunch of haters and racists!

  • mac DIESEL

    @ Thank Me Hater

    STRUCK A NERVE HUH???? HA!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Wow.

    Yeah, Em and BOB did a really good performance. Everyone in the audience was feeling that shit.
    When he started Not Afraid dude looked fierce as hell.

  • K.o.D

    LIL WAYNE’S LAST ALBUM: REBIRTH

  • http://www.twitter.com/jpilk293 jpilk293

    at least b.o.b did good…

  • Toya

    I don’t understand why they couldn’t get Hayley Williams to sing her part of the song. What only people who are directly linked to “black culture” are allowed to attend the BET Awards? Love Keyisha but she seemed out of place.

    And while I like “Not Afraid”, that song seemed out of place for this show. Especially since he has performed out songs on other shows. But given his options, he probably had no choice. Can’t really do “No Love” because Weexy’s in jail. Can’t do “Won’t Back Down” because of P!nk (I’m assuming). Could do “Love The Way You Lie” if Rihanna showed but the songs a little dark.

  • Flashik

    Eminem is “losing himself” in a pop world!!! I want back the old and great beats and tracks he used to make and rap!!,,,

  • Fuck Haters

    Eminem did not use playback when he rapped he might have on the chorus of not afraid but didnt anywhere else in the song. Doesnt everyone know that eminem sounds the same live as he does on record because he doesnt mess with his voice and hes a true MC? Really you can tell he didnt use playback or lipsync in that peformance because when ever theres a curse in airplanes he doesnt say it and you dont here playback there do you?

  • listen up

    keisha cole ruined that chorus with her over excessive singing.

  • Argenys

    Dont get it twisted it was a very good performance and most of the people in attendance were standing. But a little of the life was sucked out of the performance because of the mic issues. Is it me or do they keep fucking his mic in these award shows? SMH

  • phil

    @ best rite now They were retarded. Stupid people trying to add a little class to a horrible show.

  • Midnite!

    @meThATSwho!Eat A Fat DICK!!!!!Royce stays calling Em the best rapper alive you idiot!!!!This dude should just crwal; back under the rock he came out from under!You really could be the biggest HATER in the world!!!Go fuck yourself you fuckeing IDIOT!!!

  • mmkayy

    either ppl are dumb or they neva seen Em perform b4.. playback on hook only word 2 Drake.. how come ppl are not on his ass bout it?

  • @meThATSwho

    did you seriously just say Wayne is harder than Eminem? LOL SERIOUSLY DUDE!? “What should I scream for this is my theme park”

    GET THE FUKC OUTTA HERE. Wayne was nearly on his hands and knees begging to do a song with Em, and when he did, three times I might add, Em murdered him lyrically. Forever, Drop the World, No Love.

    Fuck outta here cunt.

  • GTFO

    I love all the criticism…….the most controversial, and the best, get the most hate and the most love…….Shady Biches!!!!!

  • Midnite!

    MMLP sold more in 1 week than waynes 1.5 check the stats idiot!Em is at 82 million and counting!Wayne is nowhere in sight homey!!Get your calculater out!!!

  • GTFO

    @meThATSwho says:

    lol I thought waynes last album was Rebirth!!!! Flop!!!! 160k lol…… If u want to stay in the past I can also mention Eminem has the biggest selling hip hop album of all time 1.76 million first week

  • GTFO

    Let’s face when eminems numbers come in 2day or tommorow for Recovery he gona do like 700-750k……and he will have the biggest album of 2010…….& all the Wayne dick riders are going to mention C3…… But since they suckin Wayne so hard…..they all won’t admit he had an album come out after C3……Rebirth FLOP!!!!!!! 160k drake sold more then Wayne…,,Aubrey is better then cheeezy

  • thebullfrog24

    LOL it doens’t matter if keyshia is a pop R&b or rock singer. she has a huge range and didn’t need to sing the song in 5 different octaves when it only requires 1 octave.

  • *HENNESSEY*

    Well half the problem with the performance is BET’s fucking sound setup…I mean Cmon can my boy Em’s mic get turned on at least?

  • shayden

    I think there was sumthin wrong with hs mic, cuz u culd barely hear him at first And obviously all you people who say he is stiff and cold when he performs well i couldnt disagree more, he was on point reguardless of wut u haters say and every person they showed in the audience was bobbin their head to the beat. They werent singing it cuz its not that kinda song, they were feeling it thats why he got a standing ovation Everyone in that room respect Em and hello he is the only white artist that performed and got that kinda reacton at the Black Entertainment Televison Awards!!

  • FOOTS

    @mac DIESEL

    You do realize BP3 was considered heavily pop influenced as well right? I tell you this because I know how much you like Jay, but hate pop. But his album was poppish, did that make it wack? No, it was still a dope ass album. Recovery might be poppish, but its still dope…at least, IMO.

    DOPE perfomances all around

    @methatswho

    Lol, Wayne did 1.005mil ( 1,005,545) nigga, not 1.5mil. You know the difference right? He cracked a milli, but BARELY. And that was 2 years ago so why we still talking about it? Had Eminem come out with Recovery instead of that Relapse bullshit he prolly woulda done a milli. But this is 2010 so nobody should ever mention 1 mil in a week ever again.

  • k1

    For all you people saying the crowd wasn’t feeling the performance, I saw people bobbing their heads and singing along so I think they liked it at least a little bit…and why are people saying he shouldn’t have done not afraid, why wouldn’t he? Its the only single he’s officially released now (the others haven’t been officially released yet except love the way you lie maybe which i heard on the radio the other day.) i thought it was a pretty good performance.

  • Argenys

    I am a Lil Wayne fan and even I know that the 1 milli for Carter 3 was pushed because it was bought by himself. To claim truth to the song a milli… If that werent the case the second week sales wouldn’t have been what they were. But at the end of the day that doesn’t matter just love hip hop and support it when you can. MUCH LOVE

  • WORD!!!

    EMINEM FUCKING SUCKS………

    EMINEM FANS TELL ME THIS…….

    IF EMINEM THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE WHY IS HE SELLING 700K…..

    WHY CAN’T HE SELL 1.7 AGAIN ????????

    I THOUGHT SO……… HE SUCKS………..

    EMINEM AKA LIP SYNCER…….

    NUFF SAID……

  • carter

  • suppppp

    1:10 was so awkward… Keyisha is HORRIBLE. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHHHH please shut the hell up. Why is Dave Chapelle rapping? And of course, Eminems mic is sabotaged like at every award show. Anything to trip up the GOAT.

  • shady

    SO IF SHADY DID USE PLAYBACK HE WASNT THE ONLY ONE CUZ KING OF THE SOUTH T.I. DID IT ALSO…

  • Lol

    IM FUCKING SICK OF WATCHING EMINEM LIP SYNCING! Hey Paul tell you daddy to start rapping again!

  • mac DIESEL

    @ FOOTS

    BP3 WAS POP INFLUENCED BUT OVERALL IT SOUNDED LIKE A HIP-HOP ALBUM!!!! U CAN GO AS FAR AS SAYIN’ RECOVERY IS ALMOST BORDERLINE ALTERNATIVE/POP!!!!! PERSONALLY, I AIN’T TOO IMPRESSED WIT THE ALBUM!!!! I APPLAUD HIM FOR PUSHIN’ THE ENVELOPE AND USIN’ DIFFERENT PRODUCERS AND COLLABORATORS BUT IT DON’T MESH WELL!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    Why does it seem like every person on here always say “DONT HATE ON MY OPINION” after every post. That is old and lame as hell so please stop using it, if people are going to hate then they are going to do it if you do say “DONT HATE ON MY OPINION” or not, so why even bother??

  • NIGGERUCCI

    Its funny how all the blacks use the word cracker so openly like it aint racist shit,but get offended when whitey says nigger. double standard at it’s finest

  • ROC_NY_2012

    I still can’t believe how stupid bloggers are haha.. Look at how worked up all you fags get over a performance. Why don’t you ask someone who was there what they thought about Em, and from what I gathered from the video, people were feeling it.

    And to all the people brainwashed by popular media (AKA the radio), your all ignorant if you think TML is better than Recovery.. Like come on, let’s be honest here, your either trying to piss people off by saying Drake is better than Em, or your playing the Black/White card like the ignorant ass rapper some of you chose to idolize (Kanye), or you just have no taste is rappers with lyrical content.
