Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson did a fantastic job as the show’s hosts and broke up the usual monotonous line of comedians who poke fun at hip–hop artists who sit in the first few rows. The show continued its great tradition of nostalgic performances with musical numbers from Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson and Sean “Diddy” Combs Bad Boy Entertainment. Tinashe, Jason Derulo and Ciara also performed a dance tribute to Ultimate Icon honoree Janet Jackson…………
