GSU alum voted off BET show

Grambling State alumna Charisma Sweat got her chance Tuesday to compete for one of the last five spots for the Sunday Best competition on BET.She embraced the stage singing, “We Fall Down” by Donnie McClurkin.

Despite the anticipation and overwhelming support that accompanied Sweat, two of the three judges did not have positive things to say of her performance.

“Not a great job at all. This song did not work for you,” said BeBe Winans.

Tina Campbell advised Sweat to stay in tune. Although two judges did not like Sweat’s performance, one did have something positive to say. “You took a gentle approach, you did an amazing-great job,” said Erica Campbell.

“I take criticism well,” Sweat said of the comments she received. She also stated that she will work on the things the judges critiqued her on.

Despite her backing, Sweat did not advance to the next round. Stay tuned for more on Sunday Best.
