D’Angelo Makes Onstage Return at BET Awards

Sunday night marked one of the final major stops on the D'Angelo comeback watch: At the BET Awards, the singer made his first televised performance in a dozen years, performing a couple hot minutes of "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" before sliding into a new song titled "Sugar Daddy," set to appear on his prophesied third album. Stepping to the keyboard and launching into what was very much a classic jam session, D'Angelo sounded beautiful, seemed supremely confident, and, most importantly, looked to be having a blast. He also obtained the coveted head-bobbing approval of Beyoncé.
