Here is my hypothesis as to why Bruno Mars did not get chosen by his peers to WIN by the Black community of Entertainment is the following:
1) The show is geared towards African Americans/Black people. Do not expect a white/asian/hispanic/mixed etc person to win on an African American stage on at TV show rooted towards their own kind.
2) He was not acknowledge nor did BET truly give him a chance to appear at the Pre-show.
3) The day before the show BET did not publicize or have good public relations/ advertisements showing support towards Bruno Mars.
Those are my reasons. Anyone care to comment. I'd like y'all's feedback. Thank you for taking the time to read this :)
