Y'all ain't ready for Ciara's 1,2 Step. She has come up in a major way lately and leading the pack for this year's 10th Annual Lady of Soul Awards has had many peeps sayin' "OH!". It's kinda similar to the year Ashanti came out the box and was nominated for entertainer of the year.
This year's Lady of Soul awards will be held on September 7th and broadcast over the Sept 11-25 time period. Yea you read that right, we all won't see them at the same time. Toni Braxton is scheduled to open the show.
Aretha Franklin is expected to be honored with the Lena Horne award and get this Amerie will be named "Entertainer of the Year". Now since when does a one hit wonder become entertainer of the year? I mean her hit, "1Thing" did bang in the clubs, but what else has she done this year to be crowned with such an honor? Is SONY upto that payola shit again, this time just buying awards?
Anyways, alleged wife beater Brian McKnight hosts the show along with Toni & Ciara.
