Mariah Carey’s Emotional Tribute From Nick Cannon At BET Honors

Mariah Carey was tearful Saturday night as celebrities paid tribute to her at the 5th Annual BET Honors.
The singer had a rollercoaster start to the year when husband Nick Cannon was hospitalized suffering from mild kidney failure. Check out the pics below…………

Carey received a standing ovation for her touching speech following the set and was greeted onstage by Nick Cannon and her son Moroccan, who seemed to enjoy the spotlight as much as his diva mother.

But the couple put all that behind them to attend the event in Washington, DC. She became emotional as her husband delivered a heartfelt speech to her and cried when Patti LaBelle serenaded her with her classic ballad Hero.
Looking amazing WITH not a hint of any baby weight after giving birth to twins nine months ago, Mariah wore a nude and black figure-hugging gown.

Cannon brought their gorgeous son Moroccan out on stage while their daughter Monroe was a bit more stage shy and stayed behind the scenes. Mariah kissed and cuddled Nick, happy to have him back in good health.

    @Tamara I have to agree what the hell took so long for her to be honored in this fashion. BET probably woke up last year after her and the babies nearly died during pregnancy and right after their premature birth. lavalizzard can you please print the text of Nick’s tribute speach and the pics of them on stage with Roc

    it’s almost an insult for them to have waited this long to honour her.

    People keep saying what took BET so long to honor Mariah, but didn’t the BET honor program just start like 4 years ago. looks like they are in time. Its the other recognition ceremonies that should have done a tribute to her before Bet.

    i would have liked to see jordin sparks or even robin thicke instead. robin thicke would have done a lovely job at singing one of careys songs, he would have done a nice twist on things. good luck to kelly though
