Last Tuesday night, Brooklyn’s Barclay Center was busting at the seams with today’s biggest stars. Jay Z, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, T.I., Usher, Rick Ross and many more special guests took to the arena for the Tidal X: 10/20 charity performance. The crowd was reminded that 100 percent of proceeds went to the New World Foundation in perhaps an attempt to squelch concerns about Tidal just making rich artists, richer. With so many performers each set was relatively short, but the show never gave the crowd a moment to feel cheated with each artist performing hit after hit. One of the most notable moments of the night was the first live performance of Feeling Myself with both Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé on stage. Clad in a pink leotard and a side ponytail an electric Beyoncé was in rare form making sure the audience got their ticket’s worth. This night, if nothing else, proved the sheer reach and clout Jay Z has in the music business and after promising that this Tidal X Charity event will be held annually, we can’t wait to see what he and Tidal has in store for next year. In case you missed the hype, we've brought you exclusive photos straight from the red carpet.
