Eminem, was among the artists included in the show’s grand finale. The Detroit lyricist first joined Lil Wayne and Blink 182’s Travis Barker for a rendition of the New Orleans MC’s song “Drop the World,” and later Drake was added into the fold as all four stars performed their hit “Forever.” Kanye West, who is also featured on the track, was absent from the event.
Other highlights included Jamie Foxx and T-Pain’s performance of their smash single “Blame It” and a futuristic medley by the Black Eyed Peas.
