It's a big night for BET and an even bigger night for black folks on Twitter. Everybody knows that the Internet is at its best when it's live-tweeting something, and what better than the BET Awards?

This year's show boasts performances from India.Arie, Snoop Lion and Miguel, to name a few, and there will be plenty to talk about. How many lawsuits will Miguel walk away with? Will India.Arie toss bottles of Queen Helene's Cocoa Butter Lotion into the crowd?

Tune in, and talk about it with me! I'll be taking over The Root's Twitter stream and pretending I'm at the show and not just on my futon. The fun starts at 8 p.m. EDT. Follow The Root on Twitter, and I'll save you a seat!
