It's time to recognize great music and the stars behind those beloved tunes once again!
To close out Thanksgiving weekend, the 2020 Soul Train Music Awards presented by BET will air Sunday, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. on BET, BET Her, VH1 and MTV2.
Iconic best friend duo and Martin stars Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold will host the show — the singers are also co-producers of the star-studded event. The annual celebration honors some of the biggest artists in the soul, R&B and hip-hop music genres.
This year, Grammy-winner H.E.R. is the most nominated musician of the night with eight nominations including best R&B/soul artist and video of the year. Chris Brown is the second top contender with seven nods including album/mixtape of the year and song of the year. The 'Poppin'' hitmaker is also up for video of the year with rap star Young Thug for their mega song "Go Crazy."
Tied for third-most nominated artists of the evening are Beyoncé and Young Thug with six nods each including both song and video of the year. Following closely behind them are sister duo Chloe x Halle, Summer Walker and Usher who are in the running for five awards each. Up next is rap star YG with four nominations. Brandy and PJ Morton round out the night's leading stars and could win three awards each.
The Soul Train Music Awards will feature a fun-filled lineup of exciting performances from some of the biggest Black stars in the industry. The annual ceremony aims to showcase Soul Train’s impact on music and dance from the '70s to today.
