All Ciara's ladies will be on the floor for the 10th annual Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards next month.

The "1, 2 Step" singer leads all nominees this year with five nods, including Best R&B/Soul album for her smash hit Goodies, and Best R&B/Soul or Rap artist.

The Atlanta teen's single, "Oh," nearly topped the charts earlier this year and paved the way for "1, 2 Step" to sail up Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart this summer, where it peaked at number two.

The up-and-coming chanteuse is clearly on a roll. In May, she led the list of nominees for the 2005 BET Awards, scoring four nods. <table align="right" width="160"><tbody><tr><td>

The southern diva ultimately scored Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist for her Goodies at the Soul Train awards ceremony in March.

The first lady of crunk is also set to cohost the Soul Train Lady of Soul awards ceremony next month, along with Grammy-winning R&B star Brian McKnight and Toni Braxton.

Other leading nominees for the awards include Destiny's Child, who trailed just behind Ciara in terms of total nominations for the 2005 event, which takes place Sept. 7 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California. The event will be telecast in syndication later next month.

The platinum-selling group, who announced they are breaking up in June, managed to lock down four nominations, including Best R&B/Soul Single group.

Amerie and past American Idol champ Fantasia also snagged four nominations each Tuesday, when the Lady of Soul noms were announced at Spago in Beverly Hills.

Other nominees include Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys who both racked up two nods apiece.

The show will be executive produced by Soul Train mastermind Don Cornelius who is planning a special tribute to the first lady of soul herself, Aretha Franklin. The legendary singer's friend Stevie Wonder will be on hand to present Franklin with the Lena Horne Award at the fete next month.

UGH... don't get me wrong, I like Ciara as a performer (her vocals aren't all that great) but this is the VERY reason that I hate award shows now... some of these nominations are a JOKE... Since when does Nina Sky and Destiny's Child fall anywhere near each other competition-wise... they're not even really in the same genre... and who the heck is Mis-teeq??... <sigh>... nothing makes sense anymore... wack wack wackedy wack...

BUT, I'll still dance to it...

wow... guess i learn something new everyday!!!
i love Ciara for her dance music.i think Amerie should win for 1 thing,i love that song.

Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't callted the lady of SOUL awards... when you think of soul you think of people who can really SING... not people that produce catchy pop inspired music... *double sigh*
