Blige, teaming up for “Being With You.” The Grammy Award winner 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 and Jennifer Hudson performed “Trouble” while Rita Ora joined her for “Black Widow”. John Legend also took to the piano for “All of Me” before assisting Meghan Trainor for “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.”
