The 2011 Soul Train Awards was a night to remember! Cedric the Entertainer hosted the show, which aired last night, and it was jam-packed with exciting performances from singers such as Marsha Ambrosius, Lloyd, Tamar Braxton and others.

Originally, both Chris Brown and Beyonce led the pack with nominations, but each took only one award home. Beyonce won for “Best Dance Performance,” while Chris Brown won for “Album of the Year” for his album, “F.A.M.E.”
