In honor of Veteran’s Day, music’s biggest stars united in Washington, D.C. to pay tribute to the nation’s veterans at “The Concert for Valor.” The three-hour event, which aired live on HBO, featured performances from Eminem, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Dave Grohl, Zac Brown Band, and Carrie Underwood, with appearances from Jamie Foxx, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and Tom Hanks.

Before a crowd of 800,000 at the National Mall, Jennifer Hudson kicked things off with a stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The powerhouse diva also joined Jessie J for a duet of David Guetta and Sia’s “Titanium,” and the British sensation stuck around to sing her hit “Bang Bang.”

Following an introduction from “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston, Rihanna—clad in a glittery cape—shined bright while singing “Diamonds.”

“Happy Veteran’s Day! I just want to thank you all, all the veterans, from the bottom of my heart for giving your time and your life for this country. We thank you, we love you,” said RiRi before dedicating “Stay” to them.

She closed out her set by bringing out Eminem for their duet “The Monster.”

“D.C., happy motherfu**in’ Veteran’s Day,” said Em before launching into his ShadyXV single “Guts Over Fear.” He dedicated “Not Afraid” to the veterans, and capped off the evening with “Lose Yourself.”

“To all the veterans in here tonight and everyone currently serving in our armed forces, and also to the ones who didn’t make it home, I just want to say thank you for your sacrifices,” said the Detroit rapper.

Watch Em and RiRi salute the troops.

Em caps it off in the Motor City with a seven-minute freestyle about everyone from Anderson Cooper to Lana Del Rey (“Bitch, I punched Lana Del Rey right in the face like Ray Rice in broad daylight in plain sight of the elevator surveillance”) to Jay Z (“I’d still get the same respect as Jay if I came on stage in a fu**ing négligée everyday in Liz Claiborne”).

Eminem Honors Dr. Dre at Wall Street Journal Innovator Awards

Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Jimmy Iovine

After shooting his “Guts Over Fear” video in Detroit, Eminem made a surprise appearance at WSJ. Magazine’s 2014 Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on Wednesday. A nervous Em took the podium to honor his mentor Dr. Dre and Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine for their entrepreneurship.

“Dre and Jimmy are like a force of nature,” said Em as he read off notecards. “As an example of how powerful they are, they had me fly here all the way from Detroit to speak publicly, and I really hate public speaking.”

Dre and Iovine recently launched their undergraduate academy at USC with the goal of inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs. The Beats co-founders, who sold their company to Apple for $3 billion, bankrolled the academy with a $70 million donation.

Em is gearing up to release his double-disc album ShadyXV on November 24 featuring Slaughterhouse, 50 Cent, Big Sean, DeJ Loaf, and more.

During Wednesday’s ceremony, Madonna was also on hand to present the performing arts award to jookin master Lil Buck.
