Hot For The Holidays Was Full Of Surprises Last Night! [VIDEO]

Fans packed out the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey Saturday night for the annual Hot For The Holidays show!

It was a star-studded lineup as some of hip hop and r&b's biggest stars came out to perform their hits.

The night began with Jidenna who began the night with songs such as "Long Live The Chief." He thanked Hot 97 for "trusting me to be on time" before joking that he was African and he was always late. Soon after, Kehlani showed off her skills she she hit the stage.

After the DJ Enuff and Megan Ryte hyped up the crowd Joey Bada$$ came on to perform his hits for the crowd. He had the Prudential Center lit as the lights went down and the camera phone lights went on before performing his hit single "Devastated."

Soon after, it was time for Lil' Yachty who energized the crowd with hits such as "Broccoli," "One Night" and more as the crowd acted as his hypeman and sang along.

Right after things got wavy with Lil' Boat, it was time for the "king" T.I. who brought all of his energy as he performed classic hits such as "Top Down," "Whatever You Like," "Live Your Life" and more as he dressed in all black.

After Nessa and DJ Camilo kept the crowd warm, the lights dimmed once again for Funk Flex who turned the energy up with his beginning set. His set was full of surprises, energy, and so New York. It all started with Phresher who performed his hit song "Wait A Minute" before Young M.A hit the stage as the crowd sang along to every lyrics on her hit single "OOOUUU."

French Montana followed the young rapper and he had a surprise in store for the fans. The "Snowman" Jeezy steps out to a loud cheer. Flex wasn't done yet. Fat Joe and Remy Ma performed their hit singles "All The Way Up" and "Lean Back," before Remy continued the set with the favorite "Whateva."

One of the brightest moments of the night goes to buzzing New York artist Casanova who used his moment with an exciting performance of "Don't Run."

Travi$ Scott had the set of the night as he performed without a hypeman or any special effects. He showed his support for Kanye West as he said "you don't talk s***, you just support your mother f***in' idols" before going into "Father Stretch My Hands part 1." He jumped around the stage, used a kids phone for his skit, performed on every single part of the stage including jumping right into the crowd to perform "Goosebumps."

After a brief intermission, Usher emerged from the shadows and began his set with "Good Kisser." The A-town legend showed off his skills as he danced around the stage and serenaded the crowd. He also had some surprises in store. After unexpectedly leaving earlier in the night following a technical issue, Young Thug returned to the stage to perform no limit and apologize to the crowd. Young Ferg also came out, but the highlight of the set was Teyana Taylor who looked amazing as she danced alongside Usher for his hit single "Bad Girl."
