Six Awesome Covers From Saturday's Hot 100 Festival: Who Took on Nick Jonas and Beyonce?
Just because Beyoncé couldn't make it to Billboard's inaugural Hot 100 Fest didn't mean concertgoers didn't get to hear a little bit of Bey echoing through Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. Yesterday (Aug. 22), a variety of covers got busted out by the day's myriad performers. We bet you didn't think you were going to hear any Zeppelin, either!
Here are six unexpected covers we caught at the fest:
1. Toward the end of his headlining set, the Weeknd covered Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" to a rousing reception from the packed Jones Beach crowd.
3. During the next set on the same stage, Natalie La Rose added a downtempo cover of Jonas' "Jealous" into her after-dark set.
5. Markam added a medley of Led Zeppelin covers to their set, featuring "Whole Lotta Love," "Good Times Bad Times" and "The Ocean."
