The star-studded event featured various musical performances, blending classic stars and new faces. Six-time GRAMMY Award nominee Sam Smith did a touching cover of “My Funny Valentine” before going his smash-hit record “Stay With Me.” Motown legend Smokey Robinson was joined by Aloe Blacc, N’SYNC member J.C. Chasez and Miguel for a beautiful rendition of “My Girl.” Their performance didn’t end there as Jamie Foxx and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey joined in for some impromptu melodic crooning.

Smokey Robinson was then joined by Mary J. Blige, teaming up for “Being With You.” The Queen would later follow with The London Sessions-cut “Doubt,” in which the crowd gave MJB a standing ovation. Blige and John Legend would later join Carole King for an all-star sing-along to “You’ve Got a Friend,” while Pharrell Williams had the crowd on their feet to “Get Lucky” and “Happy.”

Iggy Azalea called on guests Rita Ora and Jennifer Hudson for “Black Widow” and “Trouble,” and John Legend took to the piano for “All of Me” before assisting Meghan Trainor for “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.”

Chris Brown, Lana Del Rey, Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Common, Janelle Monáe, Toni Braxton, Mark Ronson, Tyrse, and Jason Derulo were other artists who were attendance.
