Bruno Mars & The Weeknd Lead The Pack In Soul Train Nominations

Let’s face it: The Weeknd and Bruno Mars had a great year.

Both had huge hits, which resulted in them both earning five Soul Train nominations each.(I would imagine Mars’ collab with Mark Ronson on “Uptown Funk and The Weeknd’s “Earned It” and “Can’t Feel My Face” had something to do with it!)

Following behind them with four nominations are Beyonce, Chris Brown, Jidenna and Tyrese.

R. Kelly, Babyface, and rapper Common have been tapped to perform during BET’s Soul Train Weekend 2015. The three-day fest will go down on November 5-7 in Las Vegas.

The weekend will begin on Nov. 5 with a welcome party and Grammy Foundation entertainment panel session. The taping of the awards show is slated for the Orleans Arena on Nov. 6, and on November 7th, Kelly, Babyface, and Common will perform at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The 2015 Soul Train Awards will air on Nov. 29th on Centric and BET at 8 p.m. EST.
