Racking up 25 years in the music business is a feat that not many can say they've accomplished. However, the ladies of SWV can say they did it with style, grace and an around-the-way-girl flyness that's carried them throughout their lengthy careers. The ladies of the trio — Leanne "LeeLee" Lyons, Cheryl "Coko" Gamble and Tamara "Taj" George — got on stage to take their victory lap at this year's Soul Train Awards, where they were honored with the Lady Of Soul Award. But before they got their well-deserved award, they opened the night with a blistering medley of hits to let you know why these sistas were worthy of the Lady Of Soul title.

SWV hit the stage in sequined, baseball-inspired outfits with their nicknames emblazoned across their chests to the strains of their 1992 hit "So Into You." As they put the song through its paces (along with black bodysuit-clad dancers), the ladies showed that they hadn't lost a single step in their 25-year existence. From there, they hit us with a one-two punch of their hits "Right Here (Human Nature)" and the slow-jam "Weak" (which had the crowd singing along like it just came on the radio). However, the biggest surprise of the night was when Wu-Tang Clan's U-God and Method Man joined them on stage to perform the remix of their '93 hit "Anything" (which was featured on the Above The Rim soundtrack). It definitely set it off for the Vegas crowd (and we're sure it got a few people at home moving, too).

Get ready to have a '90s flashback when you check out these Sisters With Voices rocking the crowd and killing the stage at the 2017 Soul Train Awards below.
