Let’s hope what happened with Vegas last night doesn’t just stay in Vegas, as peace, love, and soul shined through at the 2012 Soul Train Awards. Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the 25th annual show was held at Planet Hollywood’s PH Live on Thursday, and featured performances from many of R&B’s finest including, Ne-Yo, Keyshia Cole, Miguel, John Legend, Fantasia, Elle Varner and TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine & Tank).
Newcomers Leah LaBelle and Marcus Canty also blessed the stage, while Stevie Wonder led an all-star finale as a photo of President Obama was displayed on the screens and confetti fell from the sky.
Winners included Miguel (Best Male R&B & Soul Artist), Tyrese (Song of the Year), Elle Varner (Best New Artist), and New Edition, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
