2011 Soul Train Awards Winners


While we felt as if the 2011 Soul Train Awards show really lacked any type of vibe or continuity this year, it was still filled with some great performances. We were given the treat of The Original 7ven performing along with energy pumped performances from Mindless Behavior, Miguel, a tribute to Heavy D, and many more.

If you missed any of the performances, you’ll have to dig around the web or visit Youtube or watch the encore on Tuesday November 29th, because in yet another promotional failure, the Soul Train website didn’t post any performances and only included interview clips. Luckily, we have most of the videos here and are tracking down the rest. Apologies ahead of time that Gillette was apparently the only sponsor of these videos. Here are your videos and below that are the winners.;
