It would've been all good if Samuel L. Jackson just came on stage and introduced himself as the host of the 2012 BET Awards. But in an effort to appear hip, Jackson decided to bring his pal Spike Lee along for a corny satirical performance of "Negroes in Paris." The effort was there, but between all the unfunny pop culture references and the forgotten lyrics, we can't cut them any slack. It was a lame way to start the show, but thankfully Jackson kept it classy the rest of the night.
