(AllHipHop News) CNN’s newsman Wolf Blitzer will re-team with rap legend Doug E. Fresh at this year’s Soul Train Awards, sources have confirmed with AllHipHop.com.

Wolf Blitzer, who hosts CNN’s top rated news show “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,” unexpectedly popped up on the stage with Doug E. Fresh during last year’s ceremony.

Blitzer’s appearance was a hit, when the beatboxing legend taught him how to do the popular “Dougie” dance.

“CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and hip-hop pioneer Doug E. Fresh had such a great time teaching everyone how to do the ‘Dougie’ at last year’s awards that they have both decided to return to the 2011 Soul Train Awards with another surprise,” a source said.

Organizers for The 2011 Soul Train Awards have announced that Common, Cee Lo Green, Chrisette Michelle and Marsha Ambrosius have been added to the lineup of performers.

Cedric The Entertainer is hosting the Soul Train Awards, which will take place at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.

During the awards, The Roots’ Amir “Questlove” Thompson will debut a new revamped version of the iconic “Soul Train,” theme.

Other major celebrities slated to attend include Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jill Scott, Robin Thicke, Melanie Fiona, Keith Sweat, Valerie Simpson and others.

Naughty by Nature and a group of superstar rappers will lead a tribute to the late Dwight “Heavy D.” Myers, while Gladys Knight and Earth, Wind & Fire will be honored with the Legend Award.
