GLENDALE, Calif.—The Urban X Awards unveiled the winners of its 2012 awards in front of an eager and vocal crowd last night at its 5th annual ceremony at Beyond the Stars palace.
The theater, located on the main drag in Glendale, was held coincidentally during the annual Glendale Cruise Night at which close to 400 classic cars were on display including a 1948 Chevy Deluxe Fleetline and a baby blue 1956 Ford Thunderbird convertible, right in front of the awards venue.
Inside however were even more classic bodies including Jada Stevens, Leilani Leeane and Skin Diamond, a trio of awards winners.
Hosts Nyomi Banxxx and director Alexander DeVoe, along with announcer James Bartholet, kept the show moving, and despite a few glitches, it was easily the best produced Urban X Awards so far.
After a performance from Kiss Major the hosts asked for a moment of silence for the late performers Lori Alexia and Sledgehammer.
Hall of Fame inductees Miles Long and Jack Napier were in attendance and sitting at the same table when they were asked to come up and say a few words about their career achievement. Former performer Lana Sands and a friend accepted in-person on behalf of Spantaneous Xtasy.

Urban X Awards was founded in 2008 by Giana Taylor. Her vision was to bring to the adult industry's attention that interracial and ethnic adult film was not a niche to set to the side, but a market that widely contributed to the lure of adult entertainment; therefore, it should be celebrated and awarded as such.
