The Soul Train Awards might not air until November 28 but a bunch of pictures from the event teased what to expect from the prize-giving event. Ne-Yo, Bruno Mars, Keyshia Cole, Cee-Lo, Tank and Jazmine Sullivan were among the performers.
Eminem reportedly won Best Hip-Hop Song for his duet with Rihanna in "Love the Way You Lie", but couldn't attend the Wednesday night, November 10 show to accept the honor. So, CNN's Wolf Blitzer collected the trophy on his behalf.
The awards show was taped at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia with Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson as hosts. Raven Symone and Keisha Knight Pulliam, meanwhile, were among the presenters.
The other guests attending the show included Eric Benet, India.Arie, Janelle Monae, Melanie Fiona, R. Kelly, El DeBarge, Erykah Badu and Anita Baker.
