NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2012 -- Soul Train Awards 2012, held at Planet Hollywood Live in Las Vegas, was simulcast on BET and Centric on November 25th at 8PM ET/PT. The audience was treated to the best in music entertainment. Host Cedric the Entertainer, kept everyone laughing while stellar performances from artists including: Stevie Wonder, Charlie Wilson, New Edition, Ne-Yo, and 2 Chainz, encouraged people of all ages to dance and sing along to their memorable and popular songs.

This year's show honored New Edition with the Lifetime Achievement Award and paid tribute to late Soul Train founder, Don Cornelius.

The contributions Don Cornelius made to music changed the landscape of the industry.

Their performance reminded the audience why they fell in love with New Edition from the very beginning.

An always soul stirring performance by the "8th Wonder of the World," Stevie Wonder, turned into a massive celebration of President-Elect Barack Obama when his hit "Superstition" was followed by a performance of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours," which was accompanied by projected photos of The President.
