2009 Soul Train Awards

2009 Soul Train Awards - Show

Beyonce stunned on them after taking three top prizes at the ceremony : Best Female R&B/ Soul artist,Song of the Year : Single Ladies, I Am… Sasha Fierce : Album of the Year.

Neither of them desserving the price, i was bewildered by the fact that she lost out on the “ Prestigious Record of the Year “ tittle that went to Jamie Foxx for T-pain autotune collaboration” Blame it”.Is that a joke ? I mean are they really serious ?Then they wonder why the music industry nowadays lacks soul on the top of being a corporate piece of trash.

Meanwhile Keri Hilson was a double winner walking away with the Best New Artist award and Best collaboration for Knock You Down, her hit with Kanye West and Ne-yo.

Soul star Maxwell, who was nominated in four categories, only managed to win one, for Best Male R&B/Soul Artist, beating competition from the likes of Robin Thicke and Raphael Saadiq.

Angie Stone, Erykah Badu and Fantasia collaborated with rap pioneer Melle Mel to honour Khan, singing her hits Through the Fire and Tell Me Something Good. 
They weren’t the only singers to bring the audience to their feet – Chico DeBarge, Boyz II Men, Johnny Gill and Estelle hit the stage with actress presenter Taraji P. Henson to belt out a medley of Motown hits to mark the label’s 50th anniversary.

The awards show, co-hosted by actor Terrence Howard, will air on U.S. TV on 29November (09).

Ben gives us a tour of the Claremont Folk Music Center, the store founded by his grandparents in the 1950s. Ben grew up there, restringing guitars and learning about music genres from around the world. “It’s the start of my passion for music and specifically the slide guitar,” he tells us. He introduces his new band, Relentless7: Jason Mozersky on lead guitars, Jesse Ingalls on bass and keys, and Jordan Richardson on drums. Hear the band play “Shimmer & Shine” and “Keep It Together (So I Can Fall Apart).”

Ryan Leslie – “Transition” is here!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Ryan Leslie is the guy who discovered one hit wonder R&B-pop singer Cassie and produced her only hit, “Me and You,” back in 2006. And if he can turn someone with as little singing talent as her into a star (albeit temporarily), then it’s not a stretch to say that he can become a successful artist himself.
