The 2021 Soul Train Music Awards, presented by BET, went down on Sunday night (Nov. 28). Held at New York City’s historic Apollo Theater, the pre-taped celebration featured performances by some of today’s stars in R&B, soul, and gospel.

To kick the night off, Silk Sonic’s Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak delivered a nostalgic number on a Soul Train-designed stage before a dancing audience (Did you catch the Soul Train scramble board?). Shortly after, hosting duo Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell performed a choreographed medley of their own—oh, hey, El DeBarge—and provided comic relief in between award presentations and more. Musiq Soulchild, Tone Stitch, Koryn Hawthorne, Jac Ross, and Elle Varner vibed to the instrumental of an Aaliyah tune in a soul cypher spun by DJ D-Nice.

Jazmine Sullivan took home the first televised award of the evening for Best R&B / Soul Female Artist and won another trophy for Album of the Year. Ashanti accepted the Lady of Soul Award before performing hits from her discography with guest appearances from JaRule and Fat Joe. New artists like Marzz and Elhae took the BET Amplified stage for their first televised numbers and Maxwell brought the emotion as he accepted the Living Legend Award before taking the stage with songs from his 25-plus career.
