Tamar Braxton Performs at Soul Train Awards, Jill Scott Named Best Female R&B Artist

November 28, 2011  |  


Tamar Braxton’s ego is probably overthetop.com right now after performing on the Soul Train Awards last night. The baby sister of the Braxton’s family was the opening performer honoring Gladys Knight with the legend award, and while the overall tribute left much to be desired, Tamar’s voice was pretty on point. If only we could do something about that sashay on stage.

Jill Scott was also named Best Female R&B and Soul Artist, repping hard for the 2-1-5, her hometown of Philly. Marsha Ambrosius took home the award for Record of the Year, Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” earned her Song of the Year, and Nicki Minaj’s “Moment for Life” was named Best Hip-Hop Song. Best Caribbean Performance went to Rihanna for “Man Down,” Mary Mary earned the Best Gospel Performance for “Walking,” and Beyonce’s “Run the World” was named Best Dance Performance.

Check out the Gladys Knight Tribute below and tell us what you think about Tamar’s performance. What were your favorite (or least favorite) moments from the show?
