2014 BET Awards Winners and Chris Rock's Opening Monologue

In this article…

The 2014 BET Awards kicked off with tons of laughs just like everyone knew it would since Chris Rock was the host. There were a couple interesting winners that were announced along the award show.

Rock opening up with some hard hitting jokes taking shots at Donald Sterling, Oprah, the situation that happened between Solange Knowles and Jay-Z, and Kevin Hart. The comedian was able to make everyone in the audience laugh with each joke despite how controversial the subject was.

In the video (link here) you see Rock walk on stage with a serious face then and after a couple seconds he announced, "Welcome to the 2014 BET Awards. That's right, the black World Cup." Once he said that the jokes came flowing out.

As he recapped what this year's celeb buzz in music, sports, tv, and movies he aided each with his jokes about Jay-Z and Solange, Sterling, Kerry Washington, and Hart.
