Cee Lo Green and Patti LaBelleCee Lo Green's exuberant awards show outfits are becoming legendary and at Sunday night's (June 26) BET Awards he took it to a whole new level.

Performing a tribute to Patti LaBelle, who was the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Green appeared in a colorful sequin jacket and spiky black wig, which he wore in an effort to mimic the singer's famous '80s hairdo, as he belted out her hit 'Somebody Loves You.'

While the crowd responded positively to his attempt at dressing up just like LaBelle, he also slipped up, addressing the audience as "motherf*****s," before the censors had time to block the expletive, which aired live on the East Coast, but was removed for the West Coast feed.

Singer Marsha Ambrosious and gospel star Shirley Ceaser also lent their pipes to the tribute before LaBelle herself took the stage to perform a few of her hits including 'Lady Marmalade.'
