Chris Brown, Jodeci to Perform at Soul Train Awards
There will be peace, love, and Breezy at the Soul Train Awards. Chris Brown is set to open this year’s show with a thrilling performance.
The R&B superstar leads the pack with seven nominations including Best R&B/Soul Male Artist, Song of the Year for “Loyal,” and Video of the Year for “New Flame.”
In addition to Brown, the legendary Jodeci will reunite to perform a medley of hits and a snippet of “Nobody Wins,” the group’s first single in nearly a decade. The North Carolina quartet, which includes brothers Cedric “K-Ci” and Joel “JoJo” Hailey, as well as Dalvin “Mr. Dalvin” and Donald “DeVante Swing” DeGrate, has not performed together in the U.S. since 2006.
“Soul Train was a critical platform in the beginning of our career, so it only makes sense that our return to the stage be during Soul Train Awards 2014,” Jodeci told Yahoo! Music. “We’re humbled by the loyalty of our fans who have asked for a reunion and look forward to giving them a show as only Jodeci can. #JODECIforever.”
Jeremih, Aloe Blacc, and Nico & Vinz will also take the stage to perform their hits, along with Lisa Stansfield and Kem and Liv Warfield.
Trey Songz, Boris Kodjoe, Laila Ali, and Wolf Blitzer will present, while Wendy Williams hosts the show at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on November 7.
The Soul Train Awards 2014 airs on Centric and BET on November 30 at 8 p.m. See a full list of nominees here.
