More award shows need to start doing this!
I wonder how many of those performers are going to back out of performing now.lol
Welp Tamar you better get your vocals together because no one is gonna want to hear anymore excuses as to why you sounded a mess
Aside from Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight & Ruben Studdard, performers that actually know how to perform live, singing live should not be a problem. The others are screwed. I hope K.Michelle can get her band's malfunctioning equipment fixed by then. #Good luck with that.
Well K michelle we get to hear ur real voice I saw her live and dont think she sang one word and all her TV performance I have seen werent so hot either. Tamar u better get them vocal issues together but she still has been singing live with the vocal issues tho just make sure it sounds good
I will not be watching...
THEY A DAMN LIE. THE ENTIRE SHOW WAS LIP SYNC AND THEY AINT FINNA STOP THAT SHAM OF AN AWARDS SHOW EITHER FROM DOING IT.S/N: AINT RUBBEN STUDDARD ONE SAMMICH AWAY FROM A MASSIVE CORONARY? HOW THIS FAT PORK CHOP EATING NUGGA GONNA SING, SWEAT AND WEEZE ALL AT ONCE WITHOUT PASSING OUT?SOULTRAIN IS LYING.
Soul Train and the Soul Awards been lip syncing since it's inception. Nice try but I see epic fail.
Sometimes studio acoustics prevent live singing. Not everyone sang live on the original Soul Train tv show. Check out youtube clips of David Bowie ,Al b Sure even Prince were lip synching.
YEAH IT'S GONE BE AN EPIC FAIL BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY SOME OF THESE FAT OR OLD MUFUKAS FINNA SING LIVE.
12:03 RARELY DID ANYONE SING LIVE ON THAT DAMN SHOW.
Iemme see..popcorn for Jennifer hudson✔ remote control for Ruben studdard✔ side eye for Tamar braxton✔Ok I think I'm ready
WELL AT LEAST ALL OF THEM CAN SING!!!
NOBODY and I mean NOBODY sang live on Soul Train, and that's just what it was. They didn't even play a performance track, they played the damn track straight from the album!
12:12 how di you do those cool check marks? lol

I think Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle sang live. This was back in the 70s.
Tamar and K Michelle will cancel.
I am going to watch. This should be hilarious.
Lies! but if anyone can sang it's those mentioned above wait KMichelle aight
Get ready for the disclaimers after each performance ie: I have a sore throat or I wasnt ready LOL!
LMAO on this one here and still LMAO.
Back in the GOOD old days the 70's Al Green & his Band ..James Brown & Band ,Aretha Franklin had her sisters and a Band ,The Isleys Brothers & there Band, Rufus& Chaka Khan had there Band and Marvin Gaye.....ALL sang live on Soul Train
@12:23 lol thanx..it's a feature on my phone..i just have fun with them
Well that leaves Rhianna, Keisha Cole, Alicia Keys and Ciara off the list of performers.
@12:51 Minnie Ripperton.. Barry White and Tower of power too
This should be very interesting... Too bad I won't be watching
that's great. i prefer live music. it's the best. it doesn't have to be perfect, just real. let's go!
I am an insomniac and it's frustrating. Going to DVR this Soul Train show and play it every night after to help me to fall asleep.
NOBODY EVER SANG LIVE ON SOUL TRAIN...NOT EVEN IN THE 70'S YA DIG?! CHECK THE OLD FOOTAGE. @ 12:23 PM HIT IT DEAD ON THE HEAD. THEY HAD MU'FUCKAS LIP SYNCHING RIGHT TO THE DAMN RECORD SPINNING. SOMETIMES THE NEEDLE WOULD SKIP AND THROW EVERYTHING OFF. ANYONE CLAIMING THAT SOUL TRAIN PERFORMERS SANG LIVE ARE EITHER TOO YOUNG TO REMEMBER OR TOO DAMN OLD!
That lineup reads like a pour & stir remedy for severe insomnia. Put a nigga right to sleep with his thumb in his mouth..
Actually the lineup looks like the one from Essence last year, LMAO!
No one sang live on Soul Train because they weren't paid. Except for a few exceptions. Shout out to ST Awards if this is true. Lets here you sang!
I guess Beyonce ain't allowed.
@2:15 PM-You don't get paid for performing on Soul Train?! Whut????
2:16, Nope, you already know BeyLipSync was automatically scratched off the list, the woman ecen holds onto the mic for dear life when she falls on stage cause she doesn't want those tracks playing loud and clear while she's busy falling down on the stage and mopping her dry wigs with the floor.
STFU @2:24. You dont know shit about what Queen Bey does!
@1:53 ummm you are do incorrect about that..check the archives hell check the documentaries..age has nothin to do with it..ya dig?..that particular vernacular got you sounding
You are so incorrect
Good. Now we can see who is really worth spending our money on.
HAAAA well some folks bout to drop out of performing this year!!
@1:53 PM said-YA DIG?! Lolllllllllllllllllll...
ERRRYBODY LIP SYNCS ON SOUL TRAIN ZEEEDEEE SOOOO STFU!!!!!!!!!!!! YA DIG?!
Teddy sang live, Marvin sang live, even Michael sang, live so @1:53PM STFU, Ya Dig!
This is going to be interesting and where it separates the true singers, they will be just as great without all that electronic help and autotune.
AINT RUBBEN STUDDARD ONE SAMMICH AWAY FROM A MASSIVE CORONARY? HOW THIS FAT PORK CHOP EATING NUGGA GONNA SING, SWEAT AND WEEZE ALL AT ONCE WITHOUT PASSING OUT?12:00 PMYou need to try out google images, boo. Ruben lost A LOT of weight since his idol days.
@2:56 look jive turkey (laughin my ass off right now) you can add Luther Vandross and War to that list...@3:13 thank you..this is the same stalker different post..mod just threatened to ban this anon on the jay z post too for the hostility
@mod...this is me doing my happy dance..i see you!
Actually Soul Train started with people performing live. Barry White performed with an orchestra then Don Cornelius said it cost way to much to have live performances so they started lip syncing. Should be interesting though nevertheless.
@zeeedeee 4:30PM don't ban me. I'm sorry but they do all lip sync.
@4:45 lol stop you're making me laugh right now...I'm nit banning anyone..that anon know what it though..lol and no malice but I beg to differ..i just happen to LOVE soul train been a fan for years and I feel what your sayin but only a connoisseur of soul music would know..no shade either it just happens to be my thing..tell u what google it..it's all good tho
^^^^4:43 pretty much summed it up..they used to do it but if you have aspire or the time life collection you can see for yourself with the particular performances that were live cause they were AWESOME!!!
that's a strange thing for them to do, I guess they will all have to hire real back up singers and real bands for the show?
ummm no real popular artists performs for soul train in this century noway, so BLOOP LMAOget yourself ready to see some class D ITune artists scream their head off for recognition
they should have gotten a big name artist to bring in some decent ratings DUH- noone will be chcking for that line up!!
Ha. Don't believe it til I see it.
Some of the singers DID sing live.Here is Al Green:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuC7fiwb3-gStart times are 5:36 and 10:31.There are MANY more such as Stevie Wonder on another video who sang a song which he more or less wrote in real-time just for Soul Train.I know that it is hard for some of you young people to fathom true talent, but there are some of us who are old enough AND PROUD OF IT to know better.#DoYourHomework#WeTriedToTellYouItWasSo#HaveSomeRespectForYourElders#WouldNotWantToBeYoungAgainInThisAgeOfMediocrity
@9:15 I LOVE YOU!!
The lip syncing, karaoke KweenBey will not be performing. The fourty year old, grade school drop out is too busy playing dress up.
@6:27 because it's hard to find someone that can sing live.
@9:59 pm,Thank you. I just had to testify.
That Old Broad said... Some of the singers DID sing live. Here is Al Green: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuC7fiwb3-g Start times are 5:36 and 10:31.^^^Rev. Al performed more cuts in this video. I challenge anyone to tell me that Al and his band lip synched or faked their performance in any way, for instance, at 11:41-17:13, 21:54-31:10,35:49-41:00.Purely live!See

Another live Soul Train performance by James Brown for the non-believers:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIxVWNPeRJY
Thank you to the person who posted Soul Train live performances which made that other person look like an idiot who claimed none of the performances on Soul Train were live. I knew that was a damn lie. I hate it when people try to speak so factual about things they have no idea what the hell they are talking about. It's pretty common knowledge that at least a handful of performers performed live on Soul Train like Luther Vandross and Patti Labelle.
@that old broad..bravo and thank you!!
Yes! Now I might actually watch.
@ZeeeDeee,Thank you. The earth did not rotate until these young folks popped out of their mother's womb.
^^^Thanks to 7:43 AM too!
Even with auto tune, background, or "up frontground" we already know most singers these days aren't talented vocally. It's not about talent today, it's just who's hot for that month. So the mockery of true vocal skills will continue.
You could always tell when they were lip syncing by whether or not they used their mic or Don's mic for the interview after their performance
