The BET Experience weekend officially kicked off on Friday night in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center, with a concert by Usher, Bryson Tiller, Kehlani and more!
Usher, who headlined the show, surprised the stadium audience by bringing out special guests Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Wale, and Young Thug, during his set.
The R&B superstar performed hit-after-hit from his massive catalog, including such old favorites as “Confessions,” “Nice & Slow,” and “U Don’t Have To Call” which he did along with Snoop as a mashup to the West Coast legend’s hit Pharrell collaboration, “Beautiful.”
Tiller showcased his live performance with breakout singles “Don’t,” “Exchange,” and more off his debut album TRAPSOUL. Kehlani always brings an energetic show to the stage, as she showed off her short hair and tattoos, performing cuts from her mixtapes, Cloud 19, and the Grammy-nominated You Should Be Here.
The BET Experience at L.A. Live, presented by Coca-Cola®, runs June 23-26, with music and comedy concerts taking place at The Novo Theater and STAPLES Center; FREE BET Fan Fest at the Los Angeles Convention Center including seminars, celebrity basketball games, celebrity meet & greets; and other special appearances.
