With Dallas songstress Erykah Badu serving as host for the evening, the annual Soul Train Awards, which was previously recorded, aired yesterday (November 29).
After snatching up a handful of awards during the American Music Awards earlier this month, The Weeknd earned yet another set of awards for his work. During the Soul Train Awards, the crooner won for Best R&B/Soul Male Artist and Album of the Year.
Other artists who walked away with more than one award included Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. The pair won Video of the Year and Song of the Year for their “Uptown Funk” record.
The awards show welcomed a handful of highlights courtesy of host, Erykah Badu.
At one point during the broadcast, Badu took part in imaginary phone conversations with a handful of artists, including Iggy Azalea.
“No no no, you can come, ’cause what you’re doing is definitely not rap…In fact, I’mma send an Uber for you right now,” the singer said during her phone conversation with Azalea.
Badu also joked about her past relationships with rappers, and being banned from Hip Hop awards, during her intro.
