He performed "Low" with Flo Rida, "The Boss" with Rick Ross, "I'm so Hood Remix" with DJ Khaled and the closing performance was T Pain and Lil Wayne performing his number one hit "Lollipop". Chris Brown performed his single "Take You Down" with Ciara, Usher performed "Love in this Club" and Keyshia Cole performed "Heaven Sent". These were some of the performances for the night.
