After last week’s performance with Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Diplo, and Gwen Stefani, it was hard to think how Pharrell would top his set from weekend 1 of Coachella’s Music & Arts Festival.

During his set, Skateboard P brought out Busta Rhymes again for “Pass The Courvoisier Pt 2.” before bringing out T.I. for a collaborative performance of “Blurred Lines”. P was later joined by Pusha T for a performance of The Clipse’s “Grindin” and Usher for a performance of their 2002 hit single “U Don’t Have to Call.”
The biggest surprise of the night came from Jay Z who stepped onto the Outdoor Theatre for a performannce of “Frontin,” “Excuse Me Miss,” “La La La (Excuse Me Miss Again),” and “I Just Wanna Love U (Give it 2 Me).” Catch their full performance above and hit the jump to see photos from Pharrell’s unforgettable set list!
