You can still hear the words:Peace, Love, and Soul…. echoing from the legendary Don Cornelius and the stars gathered in Las Vegas for the 2012 Edition of the Soul Train Awards. Hosted by the King of Comedy himself, Cedric the Entertainment, a great crop of today’s stars came together at Planet Hollywood on Thursday for a great night which featured performances by 2 Chainz, Keyshia Cole, Miguel, John Legend, and Fantasia. New comers such as Elle Varner,  Leah Labelle, and Marcus Canty also got the chance to show why they are among the more promising members of this years’ Music Industry Freshman Class. Ne-Yo and TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank) gave all in attendance a preview of what their forthcoming project and touring schedule will behold. An all Star tribute to Newly Re-elected President Barack Obama closed the nights festivities, led by Stevie Wonder. The Nights Awards winners included Miguel, 2 Chainz, and new Edition, who won the lifetime achievement award.

The Soul Train Awards 2012 will air on BET and Centric on Sunday, November 25, at 9 p.m. EST.
