GOOD LORD THIS GIRL CAN SANG!!!!!!
A VOCAL KNOCKOUT PEEPS!!
LAS VEGAS — Puff Daddy stuffed his iHeartRadio Music Festival set with cameos from Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, Mase and MGK, but he saved his most-surprising guest for last.
Tori Kelly’s vocal acrobatics on “Coming Home” floored Puff Daddy so much that he was literally on his back in awe by the end of their unexpected duet.
Kelly had plenty to live up to filling in for Skylar Grey, the original singer on the song, which two years ago was used in viral tribute to the late Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker.
For the uninitiated, the 22-year-old began her career posting homemade performance videos on YouTube before being discovered by Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and signed to Capitol Records. She memorably was this year’s breakout performer at the MTV VMAs.
Puff Daddy’s star-studded set at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night resembled the Bad Boy Records medley he concocted for the BET Awards, where Lil’ Kim and Mase were also among the guests. At the time, the rapper notably fell through a floor door during “It’s All About the Benjamins.”
