Two legends on the same stage? Who could ask for anything more. MJB tipped her hat off to R&B diva Anita Baker by inviting her to sing “Caught Up in the Rapture.”

“This song I’m about to sing, if it was never made, I would not be up here tonight,” said the ESSENCE Music Festival headliner.

Could Chris Brown be on his way back to the top? We were a little caught off guard by his odd suit, but he made up for it during his dance routine. He sure can dance!

Cee Lo Green had us dancing and laughing at the same time during his Patti LaBelle tribute performance. Did you see him spray his wig with hairspray? Hilarious!

Whenever Beyonce performs, it’s always magical. We loved seeing her performance at the Glastonbury as part of the BET Awards broadcast.
