R. Kelly Joins Phoenix On Stage At Coachella

(Radio.com) It was a moment so surreal that "unexpected" doesn't even begin to describe it. While many in the packed field in front of Coachella's main stage on the festival's second night were hoping to see Phoenix use their headlining slot to repeat the magical moment in 2010 when Daft Punk joined them onstage at New York's Madison Square Garden, what they got was something far more inspired than a mere (albeit desirable) rerun.

Toward the end of Phoenix's crowd-pleasing set, out strolled none other than R&B mega-star R. Kelly, wearing a bejeweled baseball cap and motocross gear, to sing his hits "Ignition (Remix)" and "I'm a Flirt" over the band performing the melody of their own hit, 2008 single "1901″ and new song "Chloroform."

While some in the crowd seemed legitimately confused at what was occurring onstage in front of them, a majority of the masses gathered for Phoenix's set were excited by the surprise pairing, lustily singing along to R. Kelly's lyrics.

No one appeared more excited by the proceedings than Phoenix themselves, who flashed huge grins throughout the song, with Kelly exchanging hugs with frontman Thomas Mars and guitarist Laurent Brancowitz on his way offstage. more on this story
