The Soul Train Awards 2022 is gearing up to ensure the best award show night in history.

Nowadays, the typical television experience has become saturated with TikTok stars and Young/Lil rappers with no recollections of their roots or aspirations. So it becomes tough for true music lovers to find the desired event that brings the spotlight to the ones who truly deserve it. 

Indeed, you do not need to look any further as Soul Train Awards 2022 promises homegrown folk music and respect the talents. 

With actor-comedian Deon Cole returning as the host, one can expect an evening filled with entertainment and laughter. 

Besides, their performance line is just as impressive with Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige on the ballot. The audience can even head to Las Vegas to watch the night happen live while the show premieres Saturday, November 26, at 8 pm.

Is Deon Cole returning to host Soul Train Awards 2022?

The rumor is true as BET has called comedian Deon Cole to reprise his role as the 2022 Soul Train Awards host. 

The Grown-ish star told the root about his humbling experience, which became an integral part of his community and the African-American experience. Don Cornelius, the creator of Soul Train, set out to create a legacy as the program still holds relevance. 

Indeed, the ceremony is a chance to embrace their people and music, as they do not need the watered-down and stereotypical version of their races. 

It means more than just hosting, as the staff and crew treat it as their own, supporting it with the little influence they have.
