Back in November, BET announced that 106 & Park will go off the air in December and will move to a digital format. So in honor of the show’s last televised episode, we composed a list of ten of the show’s most memorable moments. Time to take a trip down memory lane.
10.) August Alsina Spazzes on Keisha
August Alsina made an appearance on the show to promote his debut album, Testimony. Before the interview started, August asked for no questions regarding the riff between he and Trey Songz. Newly hired co-host, Keisha, completely disregarded his request and asked him about the beef anyways. Which soon followed was one of the most memorable moment on the show in recent years.
9.) Free and Beyonce do the “Uh Oh” Dance
Beyonce had the entire world doing the “Uh Oh” dance with her hit “Crazy in Love”. So when she came to the show to premiere the song’s video, former host, Free, wanted to learn how to properly do the dance. Needless to say she had it down on the first try.
8.) Bow Wow and Tyra Banks kiss
Another recent memory came last year when model Tyra Banks and “Mr. 106 & Park”, Bow Wow, shared a somewhat passionate kiss on camera. This wasn’t the first time these two lip-locked, they also kissed on The Tyra Show.
7.) Lil’ Wayne admits that he and Birdman kiss
We all have seen the picture, but few remember when Lil’ Wayne confessed that he and Birdman do in fact kiss each other. Free asked Birdman about how it feels to kiss girls with his grills in his mouth. Before Birdman could even answer, Lil’ Wayne said “I’m the only one he kisses!”. Things went from 0 to awkward real quick.
6.) Michael Jackson’s death
Many remember where they were when they heard the news of Michael Jackson‘s untimely death. The whole world was in complete shock, including former hosts Terrence J and Rocsi. Though they were at a loss for words, the two still had to break the devastating news on live television.
5.) Tom Cruise does the “Motorcycle” dance
Back in 2006, 106 & Park had a special episode for the premiere of Mission Impossible III. Tom Cruise came on stage and did the then popular “motorcycle” dance. Although Tom didn’t get the dance all the way down, it still made for great television.
4.) Aaliyah’s last interview
Four days before traveling to the Bahamas to film her “Rock the Boat” video, Aaliyah paid a visit to the 106 couch to talk about the video and song. Sadly, Aaliyah passed away in a plane crash following the video shoot. This interview is special moment because it was ultimately her final interview.
3.) Rocsi walks off during a live show
There were times where some 106 & Park hosts didn’t get along. One time in particular was when Rocsi walked off during the show. During the entire show, Terrence J was making fun of Rocsi and constantly pointing out her mistakes. Eventually she had enough and walked off the set during the show. The two went on to host shows separately for awhile until singer Mario read a nice apology letter written by Terrence. Everything went back to normal soon after.
2.) AJ and Free emotional farewell
Obviously, one of the saddest moments in the show’s history was when AJ and Free said they were leaving 106 & Park. Everyone remembers the emotional announcement that the original hosts were moving on from the show. Free was not on the set, but AJ had her on speakerphone so she could say her goodbyes. (Unfortunately there isn’t a video clip on the Internet)
1.) Michelle Williams trips and falls
Arguably the best and most memorable moment was when Michelle Williams tripped and fell during Destiny’s Child’s performance of “Solider”. What made things even funny was how both Kelly and Beyonce completely ignored Michelle and continued with the performance. Of course, the Internet was full of GIFs of Michelle’s tumble.
