BET Awards 2011

The nominations are in! Tonight on 106 & Park, Terrence and Rocsi welcomed special guests J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame and Miguel to the studio and Trey Songz via Skype to help announce the artists nominated for the 2011 BET Awards. Chris Brown, who called into the special broadcast, led the way with six nominations. The singer, who made an impressive comeback this year, earned nods in the Best Male R&B Artist, Best Collaboration (twice), Video of the Year, Best Actor and Viewers' Choice categories.

At last year's Awards, Brown jumped off his return with a heartfelt tribute to Michael Jackson. Tonight he told Terrance and Rocsi that the performance was tough for him, but it helped show fans a real side of him.

Since the show-stopping performance, the singer kept his momentum going, leaking chart-topping singles to build up anticipation for his F.A.M.E. album, released back in March. Two songs from that album, "Deuces" featuring Tyga and Kevin McCall and "Look At Me Now" featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, are nominated this year for Best Collaboration. The video for CB's "Look at Me Now" is also nominated for Video of the Year. And it's not just his music career getting the attention. Brown shocked the audience with his acting skill in the film Takers, which got him a Best Actor nomination.

The Young Money team also earned their fair share of nominations this year. Both Lil Wayne and Drakewere nominated for Best Male Hip Hop artist, while Nicki Minaj's nomination in the Best Female Hip Hop artist was a no-brainer. All three of the YM heavyweights are in the Coca-Cola Viewer's Choice category also. Lil Wayne and Drake are also in the running for Best Collaboration, both appearing on hit singles from other artists (Wayne on the aforementioned "Look at Me Now" and Drake on Rihanna's "What's My Name").

Kanye WestRihanna, Trey Songz, B.o.B and Marsha Ambrosius all picked up more than one nomination. J. ColeWiz Khalifa, Bruno MarsMiguel and Willow Smith were the nominees in the New Artist category. Miguel blessed viewers with a performance of his hit single "All I Want Is You." Diddy Dirty MoneyCali Swag District, N.E.R.D., New Boyz and Travis Porter all earned nominations for Best Group.

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near. I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell. Shock jock radio value going down - The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podca

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we... Tracee Ellis Ross  - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black- ish ,  the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were  anticipating  seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired… Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown- ish , I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is mis
