LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Fresh off their Grammy success, Usher and Alicia Keys dominated the Soul Train Awards, with each winning two individual awards and sharing the prize for best R&B-soul single by a group or duo.

R&B sensation Usher picked up the award for best male R&B-soul single for ``Confessions Part II,'' as well as the prize for best R&B-soul album by a male artist for ``Confessions.''
