Jamie Foxx does the Moonwalk at the BET Awards: Fitting tribute?

Posted on

What is it about Jamie Foxx’s Moonwalk-y homage to Michael Jackson at last night’s BET Awards that’s not sitting 100 percent right with me? Maybe there’s a little too much “Look how awesome I am!” in the mix for a tribute to a superstar who died only a few days prior. Maybe it’s the fact that Jamie trips over himself at the :32 mark, then proceeds to deliver the remainder of his steps with a side order of the lacklusters. Or maybe I’m just feeling nitpicky because it’s 11 a.m. and my stomach is already growling for lunch. (Settle down, tumtee…you’ll get yours!) Check out Foxx’s moves below — and EW’s live-blog of the entire BET Awards telecast here — then share your opinion in the comments section.
