Morris Day And The Time Are In Our Top 5 Favorite Performances From The 2019 Soul Train Awards. See Them All!

The whole show was fire, but these acts stood out.

Nostalgia was as strong as ever at this year’s Soul Train Awards. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were given their much-needed flowers, but it was the emerging talent — SiR, EarthGang ad Tiana Major9 — that deserves applause for their performances. With vocals stealing the show and soundscapes taking over the stages, we are thankful that these R&B entertainers were ready to deliver. 

Here is a look back at our top five performances, in no particular order. 

  1. SiR - 'Hair Down' and 'John Redcorn'

    SiR reps Inglewood wherever he goes, and we are not mad. The Chasing Summer artist performed his hit track “Hair Down” in a laid-back fashion giving us all the vibes. The audience couldn’t help but be moved by his performance, including artists Luke James, Ro James and Pink Sweat$, who were spotted dancing along in the crowd. A special piano appearance came transitioning into “John Redcorn” with SiR’s brother and singer, D Smoke. The two were in total melodic harmony. 

  2. Lady of Soul: Yolanda Adams Soulful and Gospel Melody

    Our 2019 Lady of Soul took us back to church when she opened up with her powerful and thunderous track “Victory.” The Lady of Soul lifted up every voice with “Born This Day,” the emotional and raw “Open My Heart,” “Be Blessed” and “The Battle Is the Lords.” She closed out her set with “In the Midst of It All.”

  3. Tiana Major9 and EarthGang - 'Collide'

    After recently releasing their encapsulating visual, Tiana Major9 and Olu from EarthGang delivered us a beautiful performance. A spoken poetic justice word by Lena Waithe performed by Olu captivated all ears before he and Tiana shared a blissful stage of flower arrangements and car rims. 

  4. Wale, Jeremih and Kelly Price 'On Chill' and 'Sue Me'

    Coming straight off his sixth studio album, Wow… That’s Crazy, Wale and Jeremih brought in all kinds of sensual vibes while performing his single “On Chill.” At the tail end of his performance, Wale gave us more then what we bargained for with an unexpected twist when he appeared back on stage with Kelly Price, who delivered her vocals on his album intro song, “Sue Me.”

  5. Morris Day and The Time - Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis Tribute

    Morris Day and The Time always bring down the house, and once Morris stepped out in his silver suit and black shades, the show was over. With his hypeman, the mirror-holding Jerome Benton, by his side, they jammed out to the Prince-produced “Jungle Love” and the classic “The Bird,” with his signature dance move in tow.
