In addition to honoring the memory of Michael Jackson and allowing Beyonce to sing “Ave Maria” and sport song wedding-worthy finery, the BET Awards, held last night in Los Angeles, doled out a few trophies! B picked up one for “Single Ladies,” and another went to host Jamie Foxx for his Autotuned-out “Blame It,” which you have to admit is some synergy worthy of MuchMusic.
