Coachella 2014: Lorde, Pharrell, Nas and Jay-Z [Video]
Lorde performed in front of a giant crowd with stunning stage production despite gusty winds which affected a lot of performers of the night. The young New Zealand superstar seemed to be comfortable on stage despite the brisk winds, even sporting a white tank top for most of the night. She included her hits ‘Team,’ ‘Pure Heroine’ and ‘Royals’ as part of her roughly 47 minute set.
Pharrell was the one to watch if you wanted surprise guest stars. In addition to bringing his signature hat, Snoop Dogg joined him on stage for a performance of ‘Drop it Like It’s Hot’ as well as Gwen Stefani, who made a surprise appearance and sang her signature single, ‘Hollaback Girl.’ Pharrell was also joined by Tyla, The Creator; Busta Rhymes and DJ Diplo.
The big chatter of the evening, though, was when Jay-Z stepped on stage to join Nas during his show. The two New York City-based rappers, who once infamously feuded, buried the hatchet in 2005 and their support is still strong, as seen by the two joining in for a performance of ‘Dead Presidents II.’ Jay-Z also performed ‘Where I’m From’ before leaving the audience.
