Uhm, what’s happening in the world of Souls, Trains and Awards?! Vanilla Ice has been added to the list of presenters for this year’s Soul Train Awards. At first, we thought the “Ice Ice Baby” rapper was going to be performing! PHEW!
This year’s show pays homage to the soul soundtrack of the 90s, which is probably how Vanilla Ice got his invite, we’re assuming. The night will feature special moments and tributes including a 90’s Hip-Hop performance with Warren G, Dougie E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane. This year’s awards also has a Blue-Eyed Soul performance featuring Joss Stone, Bobby Caldwell, Jon B. and Dave Koz honoring yesterday’s and today’s biggest blue-eyed superstars. Also a reason Vanilla’s probably invited.
The show hosted by actor and comedian Anthony Anderson will take place in Las Vegas next week on November 8th, and air on CENTRIC and BET, December 1, 2013 at 8PM ET. Soul Train Award performers include a star-studded list of singers like Chaka Khan, Doug E. Fresh, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Gladys Knight, Bobby V, Jon B., Warren G., Big Daddy Kane, Jennifer Hudson, Tamar Braxton, K. Michelle, Ron Isley, Wale, Eric Benet, Candice Glover, Chrisette Michele and Bobby Caldwell, among many others. We will definitely be watching!
Presenters will include Bill Bellamy, Boris Kodjoe, Vanessa A. Williams, Janelle Monae, Vivica A. Fox, Kandi Burruss, Michelle Williams, Vanilla Ice, Dolvett Quince, Mario Van Peebles, Raheem Devaughn, Nicole Ari Parker, George Benson, E-40 and Larenz Tate.
