Keke Palmer’s hosting gig announcement comes on the heels of a challenging personal situation. Just last week, she filed a domestic violence restraining order against her ex, Darius Jackson, and was granted temporary sole custody of their 8-month-old son, Leodis, with no visitation rights for Jackson.
During the show, we can expect special performances by talented artists such as BJ the Chicago Kid, Coco Jones, Danté Bowe, Fridayy, Muni Long, SWV, and of course, the radiant Keke Palmer herself. With such a lineup, the Soul Train Awards is bound to be an unforgettable event.
The Soul Train Awards, set to be taped in Los Angeles, will premiere on Sunday, November 26th at 8 p.m. ET on BET. This promises to be a night of soul, R&B, and hip-hop celebration that fans won’t want to miss.
Keke Palmer’s resilience and commitment to her career are truly commendable, and fans can’t wait to see her shine as the host of the Soul Train Awards.
