Leftovers. Holiday deals. Football (at home and abroad, this year). The weekend after Thanksgiving is traditionally full of highlights and traditions, and this past Saturday night included two more as CBS aired the first-ever “Byron Allen presents theGrio Awards,” while the Soul Train Awards took place on BET, making it a weekend ripe for celebrating Black achievement.

If you missed the inaugural theGrio Awards, you can catch up on all the incredible and inspiring action on theGrio’s streaming channels (and we highly recommend you do). But because Black brilliance and beauty know no bounds, we’re also giving you a recap of the soulful style statements of the Soul Train Awards red carpet.

Saturday night saw the very glamorous reunion of R&B quartet Xscape, who took a break from their current tour to perform a medley of their hits before accepting this year’s Lady of Soul award.

“We’ve been watching ‘Soul Train’ pretty much all our lives and to get the Lady of Soul Award, to be recognized years after we [started] all our hard work, it’s an amazing honor,” member Tamika “Tiny” Harris told Entertainment Tonight.

The evening also saw a nostalgia-stirring performance from Morris Day and The Time, who accepted the evening’s Legend Award, and showed why they remain legendary.

“For the last 40-plus years, I’ve been living and breathing music,” said Day during his acceptance speech. “[I]t’s been a helluva ride and there’s some thank-yous that I owe along the way.”

Other 2022 Soul Train Awards attendees and performers included Ari Lennox, Lucky Daye, LeToya Luckett, Jermaine Dupri, Coco Jones, Chanté Moore, and Tank. See their soulful style and more in our gallery below.
