Last night, FLOTUS Michelle Obama, Aretha Franklin and Terrence Howard were among the high profile celebs who came out to pay tribute to Mariah Carey, Spike Lee and Maya Angelou at "BET HONORS 2012." See red carpet pics inside...
Last night, Gabrielle Union played hostess as tons of celebs walked the red carpet for the "BET HONORS 2012" at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC. The show, airing February 13 at 9pm on BET, honored Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Spike Lee, The Tuskegee Airmen and Beverly Kearney.
One of my fave looks on her--perfect white dress.
Mariah hit the carpet in a nude and black form fitting gown--and for once, we actually love what she's wearing. And it looks like her hubby Nick did too:
The 2012 honoree arrived on the arms of her husband Nick Cannon. He's looking great since his release from the hospital.
MiMi hit the stage with Spike Lee and Stevie Wonder.
And even little Moroccan was brought up on stage as well.
The FLOTUS Michelle Obama was a presenter at the show and she looked stunning in red.
And on the red carpet, hostess Gabby Union posed with BET exec Stephen Hill.
And there was "nearly" a Destiny's Child reunion (sans Beyonce) as both Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams walked the red carpet and both ladies looked amazing.
Willow Smith wore a long canary yellow dress. This is the most covered up and age appropriate I've seen this little girl look in a while.
Soul singer Ledisi was looking quite fab.
TV's Judge Hatchett showed off her purple gown and cast.
The iconic Cicely Tyson arrive with designer b. Michael.
Anthony Hamilton posed with Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr.
Stevie Wonder was an honoree (spoiler alert - sources say he forgot some of his own lyrics!).
Kevin Liles attended with his gorgeous wife (and new mom) Erica.
Jill Scott was lifted and supported to the tee. She looks beautiful as always.
"106 & Park" hostess Rocsi wore a revealing black gown.
BET News Anchor TJ Holmes walked the red carpet (fans self......he looks BETTER since leaving CNN!).
Of course Randy Jackson came out to cheer on his good friend Mariah Carey.
Spike Lee (also an honoree) attended with his beautiful wife Tonya Lewis Lee.
