    I am happy Kelly got an award
    Jill Scott got her shine and
    Chris Brown Fame it was time he get an award cause his album is amazing.

    Great Job Centric.

  5. aries_BLU November 28, 2011

    This is actually accurate and not some bullsh*t that usually happens on award shows.

  6. Hellen Keller’s carpet November 28, 2011

    Fame isn’t even platinum in the US but album of the year? Gurl bye. This why noone takes these awards serious. Notice all the lessor girls make sure they show up. It’s their only chance to win anything.

    The better girls don’t even bother showing up to this foolishness.

    I am happy Marsha won tho. Far away is my song.

  7. beyonce adele fan November 28, 2011

    Flop award show lol wtf any award show that kelly wins @ u must know its a flop show no wonder beyonce and rihanna never attend this

  8. WHITNEY November 28, 2011

    lmao…I see people are mad there favs didnt win n any of the major catorgories…if its a flop show….then why are u checking for the winners and performers lmao….stay mad bishes

  9. Cray November 28, 2011

    I can see people are pressed!!!!…Good job soul train…Keep the commercial slaves with their no talent idols pressed.

  10. RoyWilliams November 28, 2011

    Chris Brown won over Adele, Beyonce and Jay Z & Kanye for Album Of The Year WTF

  11. JohnVidal November 28, 2011

    I´m surprised an awards show did good with the winners. It´s pretty accurate for the most part. Jill Scott, Marsha,… it´s great
    And to the people saying none of the artists that won have sold 1 million… these are the soul train awards, black awards. It´s not about the whole industry. I also care most about the grammys but give credit where it´s due, they did well

  12. SNDR BEY November 28, 2011

    amazing to see that kelly rowland won the best song for motivation!!
    Anyway, i am also happy that beyonce won something!! 🙂
    Congrats to the winners!!

  13. JohnVidal November 28, 2011

    @RoyWilliams
    Yeah album of the year is the one I don´t like but they did good for the most part

  14. 3mmm November 28, 2011

    Wow! Looks like Kelly has really pissed someone off. What has she done to you? For of course she didnt steal your low class broke ass boyfriend? Or maybe she’s nt friends with ya pa? Why r u mad at kelly?

  15. xedos November 28, 2011

    I guess this show is for the little people the d list.

  16. Bizo November 28, 2011

    Congrats Kelly! Wel deserved! Def the R&B single of the year!

  17. muni November 28, 2011

    Congrats Kelly you deserve so much more!!! I met her today for the first time she so gorgeous and Kind I wanna be around her at all the time

  18. Kingphoenix November 28, 2011

    LMFAO at Chris Brown winning album of the year over Adele, Bey, Kanye and Jay! I don’t know who he is f****** (Stephen Hill?) or he he sold his soul to, or maybe he just promised to perform at ever BET awards for the next 5-6 years of his relevancy (if that) but this is just ridiculous! And really a best Caribbean performance award went to Rihanna, that’s b******* to all the real carrribean music out there (im half Jamaican)…BET really needs to stop with the bull that’s why nobody respects them!

  19. Lax November 28, 2011

    All of you simple simon pay attention and take
    Notes , SEE THAT : Best New Artist< Best New Artist
    That tells your bird Brains That Theres New Artists
    Who's coming to the stage to Show Case their
    Talent, right along with the older Artists.

  20. Teyah November 28, 2011

    Chris Brown won Album of the Year because he got hit singles from it. But yes Beyonce and Adele’s albums have the quality music. I’m kindr happy Kelly won an award even though its a flop awards show. YES! Beyonce won ‘Best Dance Performance’. Keri the flop was probably mad.

  21. Lax November 28, 2011

    And to all of you BEAN BAGS Who harps on a Number 1
    ALBUM FOR RIHANNA, iT SHOWS THAT HAVING A #1 albuum
    don’t mean jack s***, now do it??????RIHANNA’S ALBUM SOLD
    MORE THAN CHRIST BROWN & BEYONCE AND LOOK WHO
    TOOK THE AWARD HOWM. Therefore your argument on #1 Album is NULL & VOID IN THE NAVY’S BOOKS ALL AROUND THE GLOBE BECAUSE IN MANY CASES IF RIHANNA WAS CRAPPING SOLID GOLD
    HOOPS IT WOULD NOT MAKE A BIT OF DIFFENENT TO THE MEAN
    ASS AMERICAN WHOS JUDGING HER THEY OR JUST NOT GOING TO
    BE FAIR UNTIL THE GOOD LORD HOOKS UP THAT CATTLE PROBER
    UP TO THEIR JUDGEMENTAL ASSES AND TREAT SOME GOOD WHILE KICKING THE OTHERS IN THEIR ASSES!!!!!!!!

  22. Lax November 28, 2011

    There sure is many other Caribbean Acts out there whos doing great and they should have been given a running chance its not RIGHT AND ITS NOT FAIR. They feel that if they give RIHANNA That Caribbean thats all she needs and still SLIGHT ALL OF THE OTHER ACTS. I am not saying the people who won wasn’t supposed to win because they was its just that Sales, #1’s, and hard work and energy don’t mean jack s*** to the people who’s giving out these awards. Grant you KELLY’S Album was a hot albums and i am still playing it If the truth be known KELLY SHOULD HAVE WON MORE, JUST SAYING RIGHT IS RIGHT AND ALL OF THIS B/S THAT GOES ALONG WITH MAKING SOME HAPPY AND DAM THE REST IS DOWN RIGHT SICKING, BUT THATS OKAY THE WORLD WILL STILL KEEP GOING AROUND AND AROUND,,,,BUT IT’S CLEAR THAT #1’S DON’T MEAN S***, IT ONLY COUNTS WHEN PEOPLE WANTS IT TO COUNT AND EVEN IF SOME GETS A #1 OR #1 SINGLES THE DOUBTERS, NAYSAYERS, LOOSERS , HATERS AND ANY ONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO COMPLAIN THEN GET BUSY TRYING TO TEAR THAT ARTIST A new a/h and when their fave wins its a dance and shout all the way til
    the su goes down and rises back up and as far as RIHANNA GETTING A #1 ALBUM KISS RIHANNA’S TIGHT S*** ASS AND LOVE THOSE WHO CAN’T SALE AND WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT A NUMBER 1 OR mASSIVE SINGLE AND ALBUM SALES, GTFO WITH THAT #1 BULL S***!!!!!!

  23. JoArmy November 28, 2011

    Glad that Jill Scott get an award! Love her album absolutely. *Sucker for soul music*

  24. MISHKA November 28, 2011

    Teambreezy here but why exactly did he win ‘Album of the year’ over Bey, Adele and Yeezy?

    Let’s keep it real for 2 seconds.

  25. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) November 28, 2011

    Finally!Some unexpected, well thought winners!It looks like this show, despite the rather boring performances, has kept it objective.Keep it up Soul Train! 🙂

  26. kingbreezy November 28, 2011

    @MISHKA it got #1 RnB song (no bs and deuces) #1dance song(beautiful people) #1rap song(LAMN) #1hiphop(LAMN) #15 pop song (yeah3*) and #1album despite all the conspiracy and very low promotion and weak management and beside his songs are the most covered on youtube i’m not suprised we all know if chris has somebody like Jay Z as a manager he will do better than that ……..and the guy is super talented ”’ i agree that some people (few) can challenge him with vocal but apart from that he is the best in other categories

  27. marlin6 November 28, 2011

    Kelly Rowland actually/finally won some s***??? About time over lame Beyonce. She can sing better than the swagger jacker anyway. Glad she got recognized with Song of the Year.

  28. College girl November 28, 2011

    Yaaayy #TeamKelly she deserved Song of The Year!!!

  29. quanberg November 28, 2011

    Yeahhhhhhhhhh Kelly don’t really care about the others, Congrats to Jill Scott as well, well deserved !!!!

  30. YOOSONDALOOSE November 28, 2011

    WOOO BEY AND KELLY!

  31. winning November 28, 2011

    Fist Brown won…how pathetic is that

  32. Girrrl November 28, 2011

    Its pathetic that black artists don’t show up to a black awards show but are first in line at the vmas. That’s why there are few black owned enterprises bc blacks don’t support themselves.

    Side note: why are people surprised that Beyonce didn’t sweep at the awards? 4 underperformed. It had no hit singles and has yet to sell a Milli in the US.

  33. pat November 28, 2011

    not a big chris brown fan, but his album was solid and produced back to back hit singles, so i cant say it didnt deserve to win necessarily……

    jill scott well deserved

    kelly well deserved…the song was a massive r and b hit

    good to see an award show not feel like they had to kiss ass and give out bs awards..

  34. sara November 28, 2011

    Chris Brown won Album of the year because that FAME CD went hard. Soul Train Award went by the quality of the music not sales.

    Lets be real here FAME sucked n that is reflective of the flop a*** sales it has thus far. Oh n Chris had promo, so let’s not go there. He had some of the best promo this year. DWTS, Today Show, GMA, SNL, a whole week on BET, MTV Awards, etc. Name 1 other male artist that had better promo in 2010.

    Hahaha in your face moron. Cheers to you who said motivation is a flop!!!!

    #TEAMKELLY

  40. Friendly blogger November 28, 2011

    I agree with Jill Scott winning since she got snubbed at the AMA’s.
    Chris brown winning album of the year over all the albums that are better than his….Sorry stans but he didn’t deserve that.
    I’m not sure why all the black award shows are kissing his ass but if you’re saying fame is an quality album…not really….Graffiti was better
    Congrats to kelly for finally winning an award. Really was R&B single of the year

  41. commanderofthedancefloor November 28, 2011

    when i first saw this i was thinking, they have a carribean song awards? anyways, for the album of the year which i am completely confused by it, I would of thought that a true r&b album would of won, like marsha, ledisi, i think that beyonces 4 should of won.

  42. NY-Superstar November 28, 2011

    The awards list was accurate except for album of the year. Chris Browns CD was faaaaaaaar from amazing. Other than that award the rest I think were accurate.

  43. zania November 28, 2011

    CHRIS BROWN ALBUM WAS THE ONLY ALBUM TO GENERATE MULTIPLE URBAN HITS. BEYONCE HAS NO NUMBER 1 SONGS OR KANYE. CHRIS LOOK AT ME NOW HAS SOLD OVER 3 MILLION COPIES IN THE US. DID ANY OF BEYONCE SONGS SOLD OVER 1 MILLION. IF THE OTHER PEOPLE IS SO GOOD WHY THEY ARE NOT KILLING IN DIGITAL SALES OR URBAN CHARTS. CHRIS HAD 3 #1 URBAN HITS ALL TOGETHER 5 TOP TEN HITS AND ONE TOP 100 HIT LOOK AT ME NOW AND TWO TOP 20 HITS. HE WAS AT THE TOP OF DIGITAL, URBAN, CHARTS FOR LOOK AT ME NOW. HE WAS AT THE TOP OF POP CHART AND DANCE CHART FOR YEAH 3X AND BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE. DO I NEED TO CONTINUE WHY HIS ALBUM WAS THE BEST. PEOPLE HAVE TO LOVE YOUR MUSIC FOR YOU TO REACH THE TOP OF CHARTS AND I FORGOT HE HAS 3 SINGLES THAT SOLD OVER 1 MILLION COPIES AND THREE SINGLES THAT WENT GOLD, SO DID THE OTHERS DO THAT.

  44. BEYONCE STANS STAY HATING ON OTHER ARTIST! November 28, 2011

    ALL BEYONCE DID WAS STEAL FROM YOUTUBE FIRST SHE TOOK MAJOR LAZOR’S HIT PON DA FLOOR AND THEN WENT ON YOUTUBE FOUND THE AFRICANS DANCING AND COPIED THEIR DANCE STEPS AND THATS WHAT SHE DOES SHES NOT AN ARTIST SHE IS A COPYCAT AND I SEE ALOT OF SNUBS . I’M GLAD I DIDN’T WATCH THIS B******* . THEY SNUBBED KERI HILSON SHE HAD THE BEST R&b album and the best video for pretty girl rock. beyonce stans kiss my assssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss beyonce stans hate on keri hilson because they are jealous of her just like beyonce is .

  45. SWEXY November 28, 2011

    they keep pushing FIST BRown down our throats… he is not michael Jacson II no matter what his stans think…he is IKe Turner II

  46. BEYONCE STANS STAY HATING ON OTHER ARTIST! November 28, 2011

    beyonce has no number ones in 2011 …………………….. PRETTY GIRL ROCK WENT PLATINUM CHARTING HIGHER THAN RUN THE WORLD ,PARTY , COUNTDOWN AND 1+1 SO HOW THE HELL DID BEYONCES WACK COPYCAT ASS WIN??????????? I GUESS MEDIA HELP BEYONCE IS KNOWN FOR SUCKING WHITE MENS D**** FOR GRAMMYS AND OTHER AWARDS . BEYONCE IS SUCH A GIMMICK AND A OVERRATED S*** WHO SELLS S** TO STAY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!

  47. zania November 28, 2011

    last time I check, CB ALBUM IS AT #11 FOR TOP ALBUMS SOLD FOR 2011 OVER 50 ARTIST. Look at me now was the top 10 songs over 100’s of songs this past year. Keep on hating. His promo was nothing like the other top artist, he did no tv appearance on late night shows or daytime shows around his album release time. His album would’ve sold more if he would’ve did more promo on tv the first 3 months of his album released, intsead of waiting for all the awards shows, which most people either bought his album or down loaded it for free by the time Vmas came around.

  48. BEYONCE STANS STAY HATING ON OTHER ARTIST! November 28, 2011

    KERI HILSON ‘S PRETTY GIRL ROCK CHARTED HIGHER THAN ALL FOUR OF BEYONCES SINGLES IN 2011 SO SOMETHING AINT RIGHT WITH THIS B******* , THEY SNUBBED KERI HILSON AGAIN JUST LIKE BILLBOARD AWARDS, VMA’S , BET AWARDS THIS YEAR . FUNNY HOW BEYONCE GOT TO PERFORM AT CERTAIN AWARD SHOWS WHEN KERI HILSON’S ALBUM CAME OUT BEFORE HERS. KERI HAS A PLATINUM SINGLE BUT DIDNT PERFORM OR WIN S*** THIS IS TOTAL B*******! I BET THE GRAMMYS LET BEYONCE PERFORM AND NOT KERI HILSON BECAUSE BEYONCE IS IN THE ILLUMINATI AND SHE GETS HER WAY . SO HAPPY KERI HILSON HASNT SOLD HER SOUL TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY / DEVIL FOR FAME LIKE BEYONCE.

  49. Anne November 28, 2011

    Okay it’s not the Grammy’s but still ANOTHER AWARD for BEYONCE, Go girl! Good for the other winners also. May not be considered a very prestigious award show but it allows some who may not otherwise often get the chance to share some of the shine, good for them.

  50. Steph November 28, 2011

    Congrats Kelly!!!

  51. RDK November 28, 2011

    congratzs nicki minaj.

    _______________________________________________________________
    I ALSO AGREE!!! It’s a shame really

    ++Really That is who won album of the year LOOOOOOOOOOL Sorry beyonce’s 4 should have gotten that not that none selling hot mess of an album.

  53. zania November 28, 2011

    @ Yellow Goriall if her album is so good why didn’t it chart at the top of the R &B charts, I am not even talking about hot 100. What happen to all the single downloads for this terrific album like Adele. Her album basically sold because of her name, but no one wanted to download her singles and save it on their ipod or ringtone.

  54. credits November 28, 2011

    It’s unfortunate that half the nominees never show up.

  55. Holliday Vann November 28, 2011

    I really enjoyed the 2011 Soul Train Award Show! I was so excited to see that finally, finally, finally, Miguel won the award for Best New Artist. Long overdue! But I was sure that after Wiz Kalifa (sp.?) and Bruno Mars kept pick-pocketing Miguel that he would eventually and ultimately not be passed by by the Soooul! Train! Congratulations, Miguel! Keep up the hot beats and the even hotter lyrics!! Imagine that, a singer who can actually sing!

  56. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare November 28, 2011

    I actually really like the winner’s list here. VERY talented people recognized–love it.

  57. Cee November 28, 2011

    Happy that Jill Scott got some love; a little disappointed that Miguel won Best New Artist over Frank Ocean. Glad that Motivation won, it truly has been the R&B song played all year.
    Keri Hilson looked beautiful at the awards show (from a stan). I have a dream that one day she and Beyonce will have a hit duet together and dance harder than anyone has danced before.

  58. JessBee209 November 28, 2011

    Congrats to Beyonce and Chris Brown(:

  59. music November 29, 2011

    Don’t quite understand some of the winners or what they based it off. Felt like if you showed up you were more likely to get an award. I don’t understand people talking about Beyonce negatively. Her album was great and that all there is to it. I mean Jill is not a mainstream artist, but that doesn’t automatically make her album better than Beyonce’s?

  60. josh November 29, 2011

    Congrats to all the winners.
    Happy Bey & Kelly got one.

    by the way, that was the worst award show ive ever watched.
    first and last time ill watch that. HORRID, even the singing was BAD from most.
    just my opinion. -_-

  61. kimmy December 3, 2011

    marsha a sold her soul to the devil.

  62. bymyself December 22, 2011

    yay kelly deserved to win because that song was hot and s*** congrats to her!
