ソウル・トレイン大賞2018 11/25(日)夜8時放映

Love, Peace & Soul !! 90年代懐メロ大会

恒例の「ソウル・トレイン大賞」、今年のホストは昔の人気TV番組、「マーティン」のレギュラーだった、ティーシャ・キャンベルと、ティチーナ・アーノルドのお笑いコンビです。

ゲストにフェイス・エヴァンス、ベル・ビヴ・デヴォ―、ドネル・ジョーンズなど、90年代に活躍したアーティスト達が勢ぞろい、懐メロ大会の夕べとなりました。グラミー賞やアカデミー賞と違い、BET (Black Entertainment Television)の番組は、(低予算なため)生放送ではなく、いつも事前に収録するのです。今年のソウル・トレイン大賞はラスベガスにて、11/17に開催されました。まだ放映されていないのに、すでに大賞の映像が一部で出回っているのはそのせいです。

New Jack Swing時代の大人気シンガー、アル B. シュアも久々に登場。11/15に急逝した彼のベィビー・ママ、ディディーの3人の子供の母親でもあるキム・ポーターに追悼を捧げました。

覚えていますか、アル B. シュアのこの曲。1988年のR&Bチャート一位に輝きました。

主なパフォーマンスは以下の通り。

D’Angelo Returns to TV With New Track at BET Awards

At Sunday night’s BET Awards、D’Angelo played his first television performance in 12 years. The R&B singer kicked off the performance with his hit “Untilted (How Does It Feel)” before joining his band behind the keys and jumping on to a new track, the funky “Sugar Daddy.” Stars including Common and Beyonce clapped along to D’Angelo’s spirited “Sugar Daddy” as the singer leaped, kicked and screamed.

D’Angelo is set to perform on July 6th at New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival, and he will play Jay-Z’s Made in America festival in Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend. Questlove recently revealed D’Angelo has recorded around 30 new tracks over the past few years, and he hope the singer will release the new material soon.

Frankie Beverly featuring Maze were honored with the lifetime achievement award, and they were serenaded with performances by Tyrese, Faith Evans and Joe.

Kanye & Jay Z

2012 BET Awards: Beyonce, Chris Brown, Kanye West and Jay-Z take home trophies; Whitney Houston’s mother gives emotional tribute

West, who was up for seven awards, was the top nominee. Beyonce was the second most nominated act with six. She won video director of the year (along with Alan Ferguson) and best female R&B artist and thanked the genre and her female influences.

“I fell in love with music by listening to R&B. It’s the core of who I am,” she said, giving special thanks to Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and “Whitney Houston, my angel.”

When she lost video of the year to Jay-Z and West, she playfully hit her husband and laughed. The joking continued: Moments later, as West was giving his acceptance speech, Jay-Z interrupted him and said: “Excuse me Kanye, I’m gonna let you continue, but …,” and the audience erupted with laughter, recalling West’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s MTV Video Music Awards speech a few years back.

Chris Brown was also a double winner. Kevin Hart — who hosted the awards last year — also won for best actor, Big Sean was named best new artist and Wale and Miguel’s smooth hit “Lotus Flower Bomb” won best collaboration.

The tone of the night fluctuated frequently, as the show shifted from hotly anticipated performances to solemn moments to irreverence. Usher performed his groove “Climax,” and Nicki Minaj sported a blonde wig with pink tips as she performed the songs “Champion” and “Beez In the Trap,” which featured 2 Chainz.

Cissy Houston’s tribute to her late daughter was the emotional highlight of the BET Awards.

Mariah Carey opened the tribute with memories of her friend. She was followed by a moving number by Monica. Brandy, heavily influenced by Houston, sang two of the late singer’s hits. Chaka Khan blazed the stage with “I’m Every Woman,” which Houston remade. Gary Houston, Whitney’s brother, also performed.

Whitney Houston‘s mother gave a rousing performance of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” that left the crowd in tears, including Beyonce and Melanie Fiona.

The live broadcast featured some of the biggest stars in the music world, including Jay-Z and Beyonce (who won best female R&B artist), Nicki Minaj (the recipient of the best female hip-hop artist award), and Usher.
