Erykah Badu to Host Soul Train Awards Again news

Erykah Badu was a huge hit as the host of the 2015 Soul Train Awards—hosting, performing, poking fun at her own past romances with rappers, and even finding time to get in a dig at Iggy Azalea. She did well enough that she got invited back. According to a Billboard article pubished on Wednesday, Badu will be hosting the awards show this year as well.

The show will happen on Nov. 6 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, and will be broadcast on BET and Centric on Nov. 27. In addition to the host, the award nominees were also just announced. Unsurprisingly, Drake garnered the most nominations, with 12. Beyoncé netted eight. Both of the stars somehow managed to be nominated twice for Video of the Year. Beyoncé got nods for "Formation" and "Sorry," while Drizzy was nominated for "Hotline Bling" and his collaboration with his now ex-girlfriend Rihanna, "Work."
