Inside Soul Train Awards 2021: BET Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Taking Down Soul Train


BET announced the host, nominees and premiere date of this year’s “Soul Train Awards” on Thursday.

Actor, comedian and writer Deon Cole will host the awards ceremony to be taped on November 13 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Hosting the ‘Soul Train Awards’ is a dream come true. I grew up watching Soul Train and to this day I have never met a Soul Train Line that I didn’t bless with my skilled two-step, Cole said in a statement. “It is truly a privilege to have this opportunity to celebrate the legacy of Don Cornelius, all the amazing black talent that lit up our screens on the iconic TV show, and my favorite genres of music: soul, R&B and hip-hop.”

Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige lead this year’s nominations with seven nods each.
