The 2013 Soul Train Awards, which aired Sunday night on BET and Centric, and were hosted by Anthony Anderson, proved to be an eventful and celebratory evening of today’s R&B/Soul stars and the legends of the past. In addition to some riveting live performances and tributes, the night saw awards go to many deserving nominees.

Other winners of the night included Robin Thicke, who’s T.I. and Pharrell Williams-assisted hit single “Blurred Lines” took home the awards for ‘Song of The Year’ and ‘Best Collaboration;’ Janelle Monae took home ‘Video of The Year’ for “Q.U.E.E.N.” featuring Erykah Badu, K. Michelle snagged ‘Best New Artist,’ Miguel won ‘Best R&B/Soul Male Artist,’ Luke James pulled in the ‘Centric Certified Award’ and ‘Album of The Year’ went to Kendrick Lamar for his debut album, Good Kid, M.A.A.D.
