As dessert was served, LaBelle took to the stage singing “You Saved My Life.” The crowd leapt to their feet and hit the dance floor after the opening to “Lady Marmalade” began to play. LaBelle invited gentlemen from the audience to join her on-stage, including the evening’s opening performer Billy Porter, who harmonized with LaBelle as the crowd sang along.

OneRepublic kept the dancing going, performing their chart-topping hits “Counting Stars,” “Good Life,” “Apologize” and “I Lived.”
