2015 Soul Train Awards: Our 5 Favorite Performances

#1Jazmine Sullivan's "Let It Burn" & After 7's "Ready or Not"

I was a bit confused and perturbed when the 2015 Soul Train Awards nominations were announced earlier this year and my boo Jazmine Sullivan was nowhere to be found. Her 2015 album Reality Show was critically acclaimed and was a fan-favorite record in the R&B world this year. Hell, Jazmine's been a fan-fave since she hit the scene in 2008.

Thankfully they invited the incomparable Ms. Sullivan to perform on the show (and lucky for them she accepted, despite the nominations snub). Jazmine belted out her soulful, sexy "Let It Burn" and then joined '90s R&B group After 7 (whose members include honoree Babyface's brothers) to sing their 1990 hit "Ready or Not," which Sullivan's "...Burn" samples.

When Jazmine's soaring vocals harmonized with the guys of After 7, I knew this was going to be one of my favorite moments of the night.
