After news broke last year, we finally get to see Darius McCrary, Ledisi, Big Boi, Melanie Fiona in their roles as James Brown, Patti LaBelle, George Clinton and Chaka Khan in season two of American Soul.

Season one showed us just how believable Kelly Rowland was as Gladys Knight and Bobby Brown as Rufus Thomas.  So who else will play some of music’s biggest stars on the small screen?
