Sin City was taken over by the sounds of Pop, Rock, Country, and Hip-Hop for this year’s Las Vegas Music Festival on Friday night. The two-day event kicked off at MGM Grand Garden Arena, featuring stars such as Usher, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Steve Aoki, and more.

Nicki Minaj was one of the early acts to hit the stage, opening her 30-minute set with “Super Bass.” The Queen Barbz would run through various hits, including “Bang Bang,” where Nicki was joined by Ariana Grande who rapped Jessie J’s verse. Grande would later return to the stage for her own set, performing cuts off her My Everything sophomore album, such as “Problem,” “Break Free,” and “Break Your Heart Right Back” with special guest Childish Gambino.

Usher had the honors of closing the electric concert, running through past classics and his latest singles “Good Kisser” and “She Came to Give It to You.” The R&B veteran had a special surprise up his sleeve, bringing out Chris Brown to perform their X-collaboration “New Flame,” and breaking out into a dance battle shortly after.
