Tour partners Usher, Trey Songz tie at Soul Train Awards - Awkward!

Usher and Trey Songz were up for the same award at Sunday night's Soul Train Awards. You would think the heir apparent to Michael Jackson would have this one in the bag right? Well, his tour opener, Trey Songz, half-swiped it away from him, tying with him for best R&B male artist. That's got to be like your little brother taking the king's crown at the sophomore homecoming dance - this being the Soul Train awards and all. Usher later upped his score by winning best album of the year for "Raymond v. Raymond." The two of them will swing by 1st Mariner Arena Wednesday December 8 on Usher's OMG Tour. I'll have a preview of the show here later this week.
