Chris Brown‘s comeback year has been recognized with five nominations for the 2011 Soul Train Awards, making Brown the most-nominated artist in the field, with Kanye West and Beyonce right behind with four nods each.

Brown’s potential awards include Album of the Year for ‘F.A.M.E.,’ Song of the Year for ‘She Ain’t You’ and Hip-Hop Song for ‘Look at Me Now.’ West is nominated twice in the Best Hip-Hop Song field, for ‘All of the Lights’ and ‘Otis’ with Jay-Z.

The nominations contain a handful of surprises, like Bruno Mars earning a Best New Artist nod. We’re not sure how Bruno can still be considered a new artist, but he’s probably going to be the favorite in the category, where he competes with Miguel, Marsha Ambrosius and Frank Ocean.

Another surprise is Michael Jackson scoring a Record of the Year nod for ‘Hold My Hand,’ his duet with Akon. The song only got to No. 39 on the charts, but it could end up as the winner, because who’s going to vote against the King of Pop?

The show will air on CENTRIC and BET on Nov. 27. Check out the full list of nominees below, courtesy of MTV.
