Solange, Bruno Mars, Rihanna And More Nominated For 2017 Soul Train Awards, Toni Braxton & SWV To Be Honored

One of our favorite annual awards shows will soon be returning when the 2017 Soul Train Awards happen in Las Vegas on November 5th. The nominees have been announced, and there's a who's who of SoulBounce faves up for awards and scheduled to be honored.

Solange leads the pack with seven nominations, including Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Album/Mixtape of the Year for A Seat at the Table and Song of the Year for "Cranes in the Sky." Bruno Mars is right behind Solo with six noms for awards such as Best R&B/Soul Male Artist and Video of the Year for "24K Magic." Other multiple award nominees include Rihanna alongside DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller for their summer smash "Wild Thoughts," Khalid, SZA, Lalah Hathaway and Ledisi. In addition to awards across 12 categories, the 2017 Soul Train Awards will show love to legendary artists who rose to fame in the '90s and are still making waves. Toni Braxton will be presented with the Don Cornelius Legend Award and SWV will receive the third annual Lady of Soul Award. Performers have yet to be announced, but if past Soul Train Awards are any indication, then this year's awards are going to be a stone gas.

Check out the full list of this year's nominees below and let us know who you'll be rooting for. The 2017 Soul Train Awards will be filmed at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 5th and will be aired on BET and BET HER on Sunday, November 26th at 8 p.m. ET.
