Last weekend the third annual instalment of the BET Awards Experience returned to the City of Angels with bigger stars, funky lights and VIP Jamaicans, courtesy of Flow, to be a part of the whirlwind entertainment weekend experience.

Flow customer Eleanor McKnight won an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles, USA, to be a part of the BET Experience.

Celebrities galore, star-studded events and a number of back-to-back concerts were the highlight of the weekend for McKnight, who was visiting LA for the first time. L.A. LIVE, the leading entertainment district in Los Angeles, did not disappoint the many visitors from around the globe. The iconic venue is host of the Grammys, Emmys, American Music Awards (AMA), ESPYs, BET Awards, and American Idol Finals.

Stars like rapper Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, comedian Kevin Hart and old-school veterans such as Ice Cube, Bell Biv Devoe, Doug E. Fresh and Snoop Dogg impressed McKnight.

She said "this experience has been out of this world. It has shown me that things like this are real and for it to happen to a regular Jamaican girl like myself is totally awesome ... . There are really no words to explain it all."

The BET Experience is a truly ambitious series of events that saw fans jetting in to see a few of the big-time stars featured on headline concerts, late-night shows, seminars, celebrity panels, fashion shows and more, all revolving around the network's annual awards show telecast.
