Being four Coachellas after Beyonce’s surprise performance with Jay Z, another appearance seemed long overdue to the couple.
On Saturday night of Coachella, the couple made separate surprise appearances along with many other stars in the music industry.
Beyonce joined sister Solange Knowles at the end of her performance of “Losing You” for a choreographed dance routine. The two sisters hugged at the end of the song, and Beyonce immediately left the stage.
Later in the night, Jay Z joined formal rival Nas in his performances of “Dead Presidents II” and “Where I’m From.”
Pharrell, who performed on the same stage earlier on Saturday, also decided to bring some friends to the stage.
Daft Punk was rumored to show up at Pharrell’s performance, but the “Happy” singer had something even better in mind. Nelly, Busta Rhymes, N.E.R.D., Tyler, the Creator, Snoop Dogg, and Gwen Stefani all performed with the singer.
Nelly performed his hit from 2002 “Hot In Herre,” which was produced by Pharrell himself. Busta Rhymes and Puff Daddy took the stage to perform “Pass the Courvoisier,” and Pharrell’s group N.E.R.D. followed with “Lapdance” featuring Tyler, the Creator.
The crowd really got pumped to see Snoop Dogg on stage performing two of his collaborations with Pharrell: “Beautiful” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”
As if Pharrell’s guests weren’t surprising enough, the singer also brought out Gwen Stefani, marking her first public performance since before her pregnancy. The two sang Stefani’s smash-hit “Hollaback Girl” before Pharrell closed his performance alone.
Coachella is known for its crowd-shocking appearances, and only time will tell what the festival has in store for its guests tonight and next week.
