Pop’s biggest stars came together for CBS Radio’s “We Can Survive” concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday. Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, and more all rocked the stage.
On the eve of her “SNL” performance, Iggy served up her hits “Fancy” and “Black Widow,” and brought out surprise guest J.Lo for their rump shaker “Booty.”
“So many of these people, almost all of these people, I grew up being massive fans of, particularly Pharrell and Gwen and J.Lo,” Iggy told CBS2/KCAL9.
Sporting her signature cat ears, Ariana brought down the house with her powerful pipes and hits including “Problem” and “Bang Bang,” on which she rapped some of Nicki Minaj’s verse.
A pregnant Alicia Keys, who is a couple months away from giving birth, delivered her empowering anthem “We Are Here.”
Pharrell closed out the star-studded evening with an upbeat set of past and present hits, from “Frontin’” to “Happy.” He was also joined by fellow “Voice” coach Gwen Stefani for “Hollaback Girl,” and teased their new collaboration “Spark the Fire.”
The benefit concert capped off with a dazzling fireworks display. A portion of the proceeds will support Living Beyond Breast Cancer and Young Survival Coalition.
