“American Idol” alum Jennifer Hudson and R&B legend Smokey Robinson will be among the performers at this year’s Soul Train Awards, BET Network Centric said Thursday.
The performers’ roster will also include K. Michelle, Ron Isley, Wale, Eric Benet, Candice Glover, Kem, Chrisette Michele, Bobby Caldwell and Joss Stone.
Anthony Anderson (“Law & Order,” “Scream 4”) will host the ceremony.
The Soul Train Awards will tape Nov. 8 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, and air Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. on Centric and BET.
“We are gearing up for a big show this year, and the performers set to take the stage are just the beginning of what’s to come. I hope everyone is ready because Centric is bringing the party to Las Vegas come Nov. 8,” Centric general manager and executive vice president Paxton Baker said of the ceremony.
“We are forever grateful for the involvement of so many amazing performers and their loyalty to the Soul Train and Centric brands. Music is the core of Centric’s DNA and our diverse roster of new talent and legendary artists display our continued commitment to providing quality programming for soul music lovers.”
