The event will premiere on Centric and BET on Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. ET and will also include performances by K. Michelle, Wale, Kem, Chrisette Michelle, Eric Benét, Ronald Isley, Bobby Caldwell, Joss Stone and “American Idol” season 12 winner Candice Glover.
“I’m very excited to be a part of this year’s ‘Soul Train Awards.’ I’m thrilled that the show is honoring Dionne Warwick — one of my favorite people — and that I’ll be performing in tribute to her,” Robinson shared about his performance.
The night will be hosted by comedic actor Anthony Anderson. Rapper Kendrick Lamar leads with six award nominations and Miguel, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Chris Brown and Braxton are all tied with five.
But don’t expect to know everything before the night of the award show as Centric exec. VP/GM Paxton Baker says the show is “80%-90% finished” with booking and there are a “couple of big surprises we are close to closing.”
The awards show was held three years in a row in Atlanta but this marks the award show’s second year in Las Vegas. Notes Baker, “Don Cornelius shaped ‘Soul Train’ into the premier place to celebrate soul and the African-American culture, and its legacy is just as meaningful today.”
