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.

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.
