Recap: BET Awards 08 | DMVers Held It Down

Lots of DMV residents and/or natives were holding black people down worldwide at the BET Awards in Hollywood. And no matter how bootleg some of the performances were (i.e. Usher, SWV), we still tuned in to watch the awards. 

With mad shout outs to Obama, T-Pain's shenanigans and Ciara's hot performances (yes, plural), the BET Awards this year didn't measure up to years past when DMV native Mo'Nique hosted (DL! Why did you call Gospel singer Marvin Sapp, Warren Sapp...omg how embaresing and yes we did notice before you corrected yourself!).

Anyway, see pics of the DMVers who held it down for everyone who couldn't get off work and hop on that red eye:

DMV native, Missy Elliott won female hip-hop artist but wasn't there to collect it. However, Chris Breezy snagged the night's first award for best male R&B artist. And as it was one of the hottest performances of the night, here are some pics of C. Breezy's performance with Ciara..homegirl killt it:
