BET brought the stars out to play for their 210 BET Awards, and they did not disappoint. They surprised us with a Bad Boy reunion featuring Puff Daddy ( yes he is no longer “Diddy”),Mase, The Lox, Faith Evans , 112 and The “Queen B” herself, Lil Kim.

For 11 minutes, media mogul Sean Combs went back to what made him a household name.  He and many of his Bad Boy Records artists hit the stage and ran through a long list of classic tracks like “Peaches & Cream”, “Love Like This” and “All About The Benjimans”.

The tribute featured 112, French Montana, Faith Evans, Lil Kim and The Lox.   Even Diddy’s son Christian Combs danced it up on stage…following in his dad’s footsteps.

Chris Brown worked his way into the set as well.

After Kim did her verse, Diddy fell down through an open hole in the stage…but guess what….BAD BOY kept it moving ON BET.  He DOES have serious background dancer credits, remember?  He’s skilled at this.

Mean while before the show started………

There were some fashion hits…and a few misses on the 2015 BET Awards red carpet. While we LOVE us some Kelly Rowland, we weren’t exactly feeling her look due to it being summer time and all. The R&B songstress popped up on the carpet in a black long sleeve Lever Couture high-low frock accessorized with feathers. She is fab in anything, but we’ve seen hotter choices from her. The former Destiny’s child member was tapped to present for the evening.

The mother-of-one is gearing up for her upcoming BET series “Chasing Destiny.”
