The Weeknd and Beyonce headlined Friday and Saturday nights, respectively.

But Eminem didn't take it that bad, replying to one that asked, "Remember when Eminem was actually dope?" with a "He kinda has a point". Met with laughter and cheers, a pre-recorded video of "mean tweets" began playing viciously laying into his mid-career. "Y'all know who that is?" says Eminem, pointing at Dre.

Meanwhile, Bebe Rexha joined em for "The Monster", Kehlani for "Nowhere Fast", and 50 Cent also appeared for a medley of "In Da Club" and "My Life", while Skylar Grey leant vocal duties to "Stan", Walk on Water", and "Love The Way You Lie'. With live percussionists and violinists behind them, the duo tore up the stage, delivering a raw performance laced with precision and zeal.

SpaceX launch delayed, rescheduled for Wednesday
The aging spacecraft is now low on fuel and near the end of its life. Launching anything into space is a very expensive business. The launch is now scheduled for Wednesday evening.


Eminem and 50 Cent go way back. With the momentum building to a climax, the duo finished their time together on stage by performing their 2009 single "Crack a Bottle". Dre performed the 2001 hits "Forgot About Dre" and "Still Dre", as well as "Medicine Man".

Eminem no longer wears the hip-hop crown that once he owned, the younger rap princes like Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper having surpassed him in commercial and critical acclaim in recent years.

"Mom's Spaghetti", which takes its name from a popular meme derived from a line in Eminem's 2002 hit "Lose Yourself", served up spaghetti and meatballs and meatball sub sandwiches to music lovers in California.
