With the exceptions of Chris Brown winning Album Of The Year for F.A.M.E. and Miguel being named Best New Artist, it was primarily ladies’ night at the 2011 Soul Train Awards, which went down on November 17 at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, but aired last night on BET. That said, a bit of female star power was missing as winners like Nicki Minaj (Best Hip Hop Song), Beyonce (Best Dance Performance), Kelly Rowland (Song Of The Year) and Rihanna (Best Caribbean Performance) were not in attendance. Catch some of the performances, including the tribute to the late Heavy D, and the list of winners below.
