2011 Soul Train Awards Performances [Video]

Cee Lo Green and Melanie Fiona

Peace, love, and soul ruled the night at the 2011 Soul Train Awards. The 40th anniversary show, which was taped earlier this month at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre and aired on Sunday night, featured the soulful stylings of Cee Lo Green, Robin Thicke, Lloyd, and more, along with tributes to the late Heavy D and Legend Award recipients Earth, Wind & Fire and Gladys Knight.

Common dueted with Marsha Ambrosius on his single “Blue Sky,” a barefoot Cee Lo teamed up with Melanie Fiona for a white-hot duet of “Fool for You,” Mindless Behavior had the crowd on its feet with “Girls Talkin’ ‘Bout” and “Mrs. Right,” Robin Thicke smoothed it out with “Love After War,” and Lloyd spiced things up with “Dedication to My Ex (Miss That).” Plus, Doug E. Fresh, Goodie Mobb, Naughty by Nature, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, and Kurtis Blow paid homage to the late Heavy D with a medley of his hits.

An absent Chris Brown went home with Album of the Year for F.A.M.E., Miguel picked up Best New Artist, and Kelly Rowland scored Song of the Year for “Motivation.” Other winners included Nicki Minaj (Best Hip-Hop Song), Jill Scott (Best Female R&B/Soul Artist), Cee Lo (Best Male R&B/Soul Artist), Marsha Ambrosius (Record of the Year), and Beyoncé (Best Dance Performance).

    I’ve always knew Tamar had that it factor that ( clears throat) Beyonce had but destiny had its way and Bey was the chosen one. However, now Tamar is coming back.. ff she’s not willing to switch up her look and swag I wonder if she’s ready for the deadly comparisons? o_0 It can be a determining factor in her success. The look, sound and move too much alike. Smh no good for the team. Shrugs.. I’m just saying.

    Tamar is too cheezy, to blow up to beyonce’s status,…. and the difference betwween her and beyonce is that Tamar is artificiall. Beyonce had all the right stars to be the status she is, I mean Tamar tries to hard to be relevent, didn’t she have plastic surgery on her face?
