Heartfelt, dramatic, operatic, absurd. R. Kelly’s performance at tonight’s 2013 BET Awards has everything you love and/or are mystified by when it comes to Mr. Show Biz. Busting out the smoke machines—all the smoke machines—and a jacket that really has to be seen to be believed, R. Kelly works the crowd up into a frenzy almost immediately. By the time the “Ignition (Remix)” drops, he’s got everyone eating out of the palm of his hand.
