With performances from Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj and many more, the first-ever Billboard Hot 100 music festival was a special treat for each of the 40,000 fans that made the trip to New York’s Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre the weekend of Aug. 22 and 23. But none of the attendees were treated more special than Jason Derulo superfans Shayna Held and Hilary Weintraub. Thanks to Billboard and MasterCard Priceless Surprises, the two 26-year-olds were plucked from the crowd of thousands and upgraded with front-of-stage access during Derulo’s dynamic set. And just when they thought their day couldn’t get any better, we blindsided them with an exclusive meet-and-greet with the R&B hitmaker backstage after the show.
Watch the video above to see how Shayna and Hilary gained their exclusive access, and how they reacted when coming face-to-face with the music idol. The moment was, in a word, priceless.
