SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2015, hosted at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, aired on BET and Centric Sunday, November 29.

Bozeman, Cameo, Erica Campbell and Tasha Cobbs. Jill Scott was honored with the first-ever Lady of Soul Award and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds was presented with the Legend Award.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS: Host and legendary musical artist Erykah Badu opened up the show with a medley of her memorable songs including “Danger,” “On & On,” and “Love Of My Life.”  The Queen of Neo-Soul showed her spunky nature and had the audience in hysterics as she poked fun at her “influence” on some of hip-hop’s leading men, while proclaiming a ban on rap and “gold chains.”

Tyrese performed his Adult R&B Billboard chart-topping single “Shame,” and won over host Ms. Badu who flirted with the hitmaker following his sinful performance complimenting his “pretty smile.”
