Summer Jam 2013 Performances: Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj & More

The 20th anniversary of Hot 97’s Summer Jam brought all the hottest hip-hop artists to one stage, and HollywoodLife.com was there to see it all!

The crowd at MetLife Stadium got quite the show June 2 from Summer Jam headliners Chris Brown, French Montana and the rapper who put on the longest and most well-received act of the night, Kendrick Lamar. But what really brought down the house was the shocking surprise guests that came on stage in true Summer Jam fashion.

Chris Brown Gives Ladies Exactly The Performance They Wanted

While we were a little surprised that Chris came out so early, we couldn’t help get out of our seats for his amazing performance. He rose out of the floor, and was the only performer who had back-up dancers.

However, that didn’t stop him from doing some seriously awesome dance moves on stage.

He opened with “Beautiful People,” then led into his 2011 hit “She Ain’t You” — an odd choice, considering how often he’s gone back and forth between Karrueche Tran and Rihanna.

The crowd went really crazy after that, when he took his shirt off and sang “Strip.”

His performance also included “Look At Me Now,” “Don’t Judge Me,” and “Fine China.” He brought out Sean Kingston to sing his verse on “Beat It,” and then Fabolous for “Ready.” Altogether, it was an unforgettable performance.

Nicki Minaj’s Surprises Fans On Stage

Although iconic groups like Wu-Tang Clan did hit the stage, the crowd really enjoyed the younger artists. 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar both put on amazing performances towards the end of the show — and brought out a ton of guests!

2 Chainz surprised the crowd by bringing out Nicki Minaj to rap “I Luv Dem Strippers” and “Beez in the Trap.” People were shocked after she backed out at the last minute in 2012, after Hot 97 publicly dissed her. While the station forgave her for dropping out, it seemed the audience didn’t as she didn’t get the warm welcome from all.

We’ve got to also mention that two of her not-so-great friends made surprise appearances as well. Mariah Carey — who has butted heads continually with Nicki on American Idol– joined Miguel on stage to sing along with “Beautiful.” Later, Lil’ Kim, who has publicly dissed Nicki in the past, came out with Fabolous and performed “Queen Bitch.”

Summer Jam Surprises: Saving The Best For Last

French Montana closed out the show, which surprised the audience itself since he wasn’t the biggest artist there. However, we all know we could expect more shocking surprise guests.

Unfortunately for the crowd it wasn’t Jay-Z, although many rumors were flying that he was backstage.

To perform “Pop That,” French welcomed the legendary Rick Ross followed by Lil’ Wayne. Although it was pouring rain at this point, the crowd didn’t care and were jumping along with Weezy and Rozay.

What did you think of Summer Jam’s lineup this year? Let me know!

Chris need to stay with Kae and let Rih be. And Kae is definitely not ANGIE cause Angie won’t put up with groupies. Thank God Rih and Chris didn’t have kids, then she will be stuck and have to deal the nonsense.

@meme team breezy this article is about Chris and the other artists who performed. Lets discuss his performance and not worry about Rihanna who’s selling out stadiums overseas. I tell you that damned Rihanna reign. Y’all never fail but I get it I know you love her on the DL.
