Centric Presents “The Soul Train Awards 2012” [VIDEO RECAP]

Last night’s BET televised and Centric produced Soul Train Awards, which was deftly hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, were really incredible.  Despite missing some of the Sunday evening football games, we watched, sang and rejoiced with the lot of incredible performances that were featured.  Among those performing were soulful superstars Stevie Wonder, Tyrese, Tank, Anthony Hamilton, Leah LaBelle, Fantasia, and Charlie Wilson among others.    New Edition brought down the house with a rousing medley of hits from their heyday including a Bobby Brown led Mr. Telephone Man and a seat clearing rendition of their classic If It Isn’t Love.

We’ve compiled the best of the web for this recap in case you missed it.

Finally, kudos to the team at BET and Centric for bringing back a televised Apollo Theater-based talent competition. If the first week is any indication of how good this season will be, we are all in and invite you to check your local listing so you can watch and maybe see the next Michael Jackson before he becomes a star.
