For the first time in Soul Train Music Awards history, this year’s show was broadcast live on BET! The star-studded event was held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 17 and was hosted by actresses Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold. The pair opened the show with an upbeat, comedy-laced performance of some of Janet Jackson’s biggest hits produced by the legendary duo Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis.
