Beyoncé & Mary J. Blige will always be close to our hearts, but on this day it was totally someone else's night!!!
Rihanna was the WINNER of the Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist award, and there was definitely not a dry eye among the audience who were all glad to see this lady get what she deserved.
Although she wasn't there to collect her statuette, she was absolutely there in our hearts - metaphorically speaking.
We think she was actually in Sweden or something.

Charles Bradley doesn't just sing the blues. He's lived them!
The soul singer has lead a very difficult life, including his own near-death experience and the murder of his brother. He worked a series of odd jobs, including being a James Brown impersonator. It was while doing his best Godfather that he got discovered. And so began his music career - well into his 50s!
Bradley's song Heartaches & Pain is dripping with authenticity and nuance. This is some real shit! Powerful! Beautiful!
Check it out (above)!

We are LOVING the intimate vibe Duets gives us!!
Sure, they're performing in an auditorium like the other musical competition series, but there's something about Kelly Clarkson's latest venture that makes us feel like we're in our own exclusive lounge!!
Just take John Legends' performances for example! If we didn't know any better, we'd think we were spying on him and Bridget Carrington! Their stunning performance of Tonight (Best I Ever Had) was smoooth seduction!
You gotta check it out (above)!!! And you really have to watch Johnny Gray give it his all with Ordinary People. He is a true voice of soul! …AFTER THE JUMP!
