Xscape and The Time Honored at the 2022 Soul Train Awards. Beyonce Wins BIG!


No matter what drama we've heard about surrounding Xscape and their 2022 Soul Train Awards appearance, the ladies looked good and sound even better! Hosted by comedic actor Deon Cole, the 2022 Soul Train Awards was a star studded night with some amazing performances.


Beyonce' racked up a number of wins in a few different categories. She won album of the year for the fourth time with Renaissance, song of the year for the third time with “Break My Soul,” and best collaboration for “Make Me Say It Again, Girl,” a pairing with Ronald Isley & The Isley Brothers.


Lizzo won best dance performance for “About Damn Time.” Blige received the Certified Soul award (formerly known as the Centric Award). Long took the Ashford & Simpson songwriter’s award for “Hrs & Hrs.” All three of these artists, as well as Beyoncé, were nominated in Big Four categories at the upcoming Grammy Awards.


Sullivan won best R&B/soul female artist for the second year in a row, beating Beyoncé, who has won in that category a record four times, but not since 2016.
