Wait did you see that? With the artists giving amazing performances, you may have been too star struck to check out these moments that took place this summer during the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

Here some moments you might not have noticed during last night’s broadcast on “TV One Night Only: Live From Essence.” See Trey Songz rapping like Nicki Minaj, El DeBarge singing a Drake song, Fantasia jumps out of her shoes, Mary J. Blige takes ’em to church, and much more in the photos below. Tune in this Friday (September 9th) at 8 pm (ET) to TV One for the rebroadcast to see these moments for yourself!
