#SoulTrainAwards Erykah Badu, R. Kelly, Babyface, and more!

It’s happening this Sunday, the highly anticipated Soul Train Awards hosted by Erykah Badu airs on BET and Centric at 8pm est.

This year’s show has an incredible lineup with R. Kelly, Tyrese, Fantasia, Brandy, Boyz II Men, and Tevin Campbell to name a few. Jill Scott and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds are this year’s honorees for the Lady of Soul and Legend Award.

I can’t deny it, I’m uber excited to see which nominees take home the win, slay the stage, and snatch the red carpet.

Here’s a sneak preview of this year’s nominees:
