H.E.R., Bruno Mars & Ella Mai Lead The Pack With 2018 Soul Train Awards Nominations


When the 2018 Soul Train Awards land in Las Vegas next month, attendees can expect to see a lot of SoulBounce fave H.E.R. that night. That's because the talented singer/musician is sitting pretty at the top of this year's nominee list with seven nods to her name, including in the Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Song of the Year and Album/Mixtape of the Year categories.

Meanwhile, Bruno Mars, who was last year's top nominee, and Cardi B, are both following close on H.E.R.'s heels with six nominations each. TDE's SZA also has a lot to celebrate thanks to her five nominations, while Daniel Caesar and Ella Mai bring up the rear with four nominations each. Other nominees on the list include Lenny KravitzJorja Smith, BeyoncéKali Uchis, Janet Jackson and more.

Although Erykah Badu has been handling the hosting duties for the past three years, she'll be passing the baton this year to actresses Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold. That doesn't mean that Badu won't still be in the house as she has been named the recipient of this year's Legend Award, while fellow singer Faith Evans will be honored with the Lady of Soul Award for her musical contributions.

Additional presenters and performers for this year's show, which is set to tape November 17th at the Orleans Arena in Sin City, will be announced in upcoming weeks. The 2018 Soul Train Awards will be premiere on both BET and BET Her a little over a week later on November 25th at 8 p.m. EST.

While we wait to find out who else will be on the program for this year's show, take a look at the nominees to see if your fave received any nominations.
