WORST: Trey Songz Throws Around his 'Banana'
Trey Songz has been one of R&B's most consistently appealing stars for over a decade. But lately, Mr. Steal-Yo-Girl has been stuck on a downward trend, a streak underlined by his strangely off-putting BET Awards medley of "Nobody Else But You" and "Monster." Wearing a gauche black fur, he surrounded himself with plumes of smoke machine mist and scantily-clad dancers while he bragged that "I be throwing this banana all around." Worse, his voice sounded pitch-y and flat – odd considering that Trey built his reputation on his deftly emotional singing. Was it was badly sexist or simply bad raunch? Either way, it was an awfully tone deaf performance. –MR
