Flanked by black-clad dancers, Nicki Minaj appeared before a purple backdrop to perform "The Night is Still Young" at the Billboard Music Awards before David Guetta appeared onstage for a spirited rendition of "Hey Mama."
While flames danced beside the French DJ and acrobats flipped through the air, Minaj belted the lyrics with gusto and received a standing ovation from the enthusiastic crowd.
"Hey Mama" currently sits atop Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, giving Guetta his first No. 1 on the chart since its Jan. 26, 2013 premiere. Guetta has placed 18 titles on the chart, second only to Skrillex's 21.
