Above, and after the jump are just a few of the photos that the Hot97 staff photographers snapped from in front of the stage at Hot97’s Summerjam 2010 tonite….lots of action, and alot of cross-pollination of acts, lol. I was thoroughly shocked by Trey Songz’ combo self-love-simulation and audience-member make-out session. But as I mentioned in the earlier post, it felt like there was a momentum peak around DJ Khaled’s set, mainly because he kept it moving very quickly and appealed to everyone from the Bronx to the Caribbean and more. It stared with Ludacriss and Nicki Minaj, then flowed directly to Khaled, who brought out T-Pain, Busta, then Rick Ross, then Fat Joe, then Barrington Levy, then Cam’ron and Vado (Cam first did “I Really Mean It,” and then together they did “Speakin’ Tungs”), then Rick Ross again (“Hustlin'”), ending with everyone doing the chorus for “All I Do I Win.” For more photos check out the Hot97.com galleries.

Also inserted in the photo roundup….the homie Blogxilla took some cute photos of Nicki Minaj walking with Cassie, before bringing her onstage at Summerjam. During Ludacris’ set, Nicki came out to perform “Lil Freak,” and Cassie joined them onstage for the line about “stealing Cassie from Diddy.” They held hands and walked off.

As for the questions about Dipset, the “reunion” was a bit disjointed. Yes, Juelz had his set, and he brought out Maino and Lloyd Banks. But Cam’ron didn’t join him, he came with Vado during Khaled’s set. And sadly, Jim Jones was not allowed in the stadium because of his run-in with the cops at last year’s Summer Jam. Also, I’m sad that Jeezy didn’t show.

(gotta love the fact that I sat down with my hair still in curlers to fend off the humidity, and got caught in a photo while talking to Ang and Juelz, lol. Doh!)

Check out all the selected photos, as well as a video of Juelz Santana and Lloyd Banks performing “Beamer Benz or Bentley”….after the jump,
