Host and legendary musical artist Erykah Badu opened up the show with a medley of her memorable songs including “Danger,” “On & On,” and “Love Of My Life.” The Queen of Neo-Soul showed her spunky nature and had the audience in hysterics as she poked fun at her “influence” on some of hip-hop’s leading men, while proclaiming a ban on rap and “gold chains.”
Tyrese performed his Adult R&B Billboard chart-topping single “Shame,” and won over host Ms. Badu who flirted with the hitmaker following his sinful performance complimenting his “pretty smile.”
Jill Scott was presented with the first-ever Lady of Soul Award with a special tribute video from industry’s top executives and artists such as Whoopi Goldberg, Usher and more speaking to Scott’s energy, creativity, exceptional talent and inspiration. Honoree Jill Scott blew the crowd away with a selection of her most beloved hits including “Back Together,” “Long Walk,” “It’s Love,” “Golden,” “Cross My Mind,” and “Whatever.” She brought the crowd to their feet as they joined in with her including Janelle Monae mouthing along to every song.
