The worlds of fashion and music collided on national television with the first ever Fashion Rocks show, live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Tuesday night.
As the surprise opening performance, Usher kicked off the show, “riding in on a motorcycle,” with his funky uptempo hit “She Came To Give It To You.” While she was in the building for her own performance, Nicki Minaj didn’t join in this time for some booty and bass. Instead the R&B superstar rocked the venue with his all female band and was joined by a sexy runway model, who strutted her stuff across the stage.
The entertaining event was hosted by Ryan Seacrest and included performances from many of today’s biggest stars and legends including Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson, Duran Duran, KISS and many more.
