CNN's Wolf Blitzer, a longtime fan of Soul Train, steals the show when he took to the stage with Doug E. Fresh to do the "Dougie" dance and later accepted an award on behalf of Eminem, who could not attend.

Although the show did not offer an official Soul Train line, hosts Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson tore up the stage with a rousing dance off to "Hot Toddy" and "Whip My Hair;" "Stanky Leg" and "Rude Boy;" and "How Low Can You Go."

Anita Baker proved she was a fortunate woman with a passion for music when she accepted her Legend Award after a tribute from a powerhouse of female vocalists�Chrisette Michelle, Faith Evans, Tamia, Rachelle Ferrell, Lalah Hathaway and Dionne Farris�who performed a medley of Baker's hits from "Caught Up in the Rapture" to "Giving You the Best That I Got."

Later, Erykah Badu brought her soul to the stage with an eclectic medley of "Out of my mind/Window Seat" that featured light instillations combined with her unique style. And then the animated Cee Lo Green took his eccentric style to a new level with his performance of his hit song, "Forget You."

Hip hop superstars Biz Markie, Just Blaze and Kid Capri presented the winner of the "Best Hip Hop Song of the Year" and serenaded the crowd with Biz Markie's hit song, "Just a Friend." Eminem, the category winner, was not in attendance to receive the award so Wolf Blitzer accepted on his behalf stating "Eminem can't be here so who better to accept this award. I know he's thrilled so on behalf of Eminen and everyone else, thank you."

The comedic genius Steve Harvey presented Ron Isley with the second Legend Award for the night. R&B heavyweights Keyshia Cole, Bilal, Tank, El DeBarge, Eric Benet, Peabo Bryson, Jeffrey Osborne and Freddy Jackson serenaded the icon with a medley of his greatest hits. After his acceptance speech, Ron Isley performed his sultry songs "Between the Sheets" and "What I Missed the Most" and later collaborated with Chante Moore and R. Kelly for the throwback hit, "Contagious."
