Best Male R&B/Soul Artist


Stretching the artistic boundaries of both hip hop and R&B, Cee-Lo's superdelic funk-infused music almost warrants its own genre.

Chris Brown

While his public image has suffered its fair share of ups and downs, his talent for singing and dancing is undeniable. Having released eight successful singles from his latest album F.A.M.E., Breezy is on fire.

R. Kelly

Few would deny R. Kelly the title of musical genius. He's got a history of hits, a wall full of platinum plaques and a professional resume that speaks volumes.

Trey Songz

Songz brought home this award at last year’s show, but will his sexy lyrics and vocals bring home the gold again?

Eric Benet

With his grown and sexy sound, Eric Benet infuses the softer side of the male soul onto today's music scene.


Equipped with a string of R&B hits and a fashion-forward sense of style, the accomplished singer/songwriter is a “sure thing.”
