BET Social Awards: And The Winner Is
Jess Hilarious and DC Young Fly were last night’s hosts of the BET Social Awards. The show opened up with some of the hottest joints on the radio with some dance routines that would make you get up and jam out. Instagram sensation, Shiggy (@theshiggyshow) came out to one of the biggest dance crazes to hit the net last year with Drake’s “In My Feelings”. There was some breakdancing, some new school schooling and much more. DC Young Fly and Jess Hilarious joined in on the fun by doing some dance routines and then getting into it at the end because one wanted the spotlight more than the other. After a little back and forth the show opened up with the “White People’s Guide To Black Twitter ”.
Mike Epps came out to introduce the nominees for LMAO Award where he talked about being discovered on the internet in today’s world but also how difficult it was back in the day to get a chance to do stand-up comedy at a comedy club. The winner of the LMAO award was Jay Cole (@thatgirljaycole) she told everyone to keep believing in themselves and to never give up because she got her start in her bathroom and bedroom.
Next Wacka Flocka and Tammy Rivera gave out the ISSA WAVE Award to City Girls @yungmiami305 gave her acceptance speech but not before twerking to the mic in which Tammy joined in. Internet sensation Danileigh then came out to perform her hit single “Lil Bebe” and got the crowd hyped with some of her signature dance moves. DC Young Fly and friends presented Soulja Boy with the “Social Influencer Award” but not before roasting him along with some videos from some well known social media celebrities doing his dance moves and talking about how he was the biggest come back of 2018. As Soulja Boy was accepting his award DC Young Fly interrupts him and asks him to perform some of his hit bangers and of course Young Draco complied!
