Beyoncé was the big winner at the 2022 Soul Train Awards presented by BET on Saturday night.
The “Break My Soul” singer topped the winners list with three awards, including Album of The Year, Song of the Year, and Best Collaboration with Ronald Isley & The Isley Brothers — although she did not attend the ceremony at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
Among other winners, legendary R&B group Xscape picked up the Lady of Soul honor. So So Def Records founder Jermaine Dupri presented the award and recalled signing the group thirty years ago.
The foursome, made up of Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott, then brought the audience to their feet by performing some of their 1990s hits, including “Who Can I Run To?,” ”Tonight,” and “Just Kickin’ It.”
Iconic funk band Morris Day & The Time picked up the Legend Award. After accepting the honor, the group turned in a high octane performance of their hits “Cool,” “777,” “Jungle Love,” and “The Bird.”
Comedian and actor Deon Cole hosted the show, which included performances by Muni Long, Chanté Moore, Ari Lennox, Tank, and SiR.
