Tamar Braxton's title for her sis is literally about to come to life.  Toni Braxton Living Legend - who has sold over 67 million records, including 41 million albums, worldwide - is set to receive the coveted Don Cornelius Legend Award.  We just want to know who's going to perform that tribute.  And if her boo Birdman will be right by her side...

SWV is also set to to cop a major award.  The trio - Coko, LeLee & Taj - will receive the third annual Lady of Soul Award as one of the most successful R&B groups of the 1990s. The "Weak" and "Right Here/Human Nature" singers have sold more than 25 million records, making them one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. Well deserved!
