An epic group of music legends took a night off and actually watched from the side stage rather than performing! Beyonce, Jay Z, Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz, Mary J. Blige and Chris Rock watched 90's music icon Lauryn Hill sing on stage at the 2010 Rock The Bells concert in New York City. Alicia looked very pregnant as she bopped to the music while Swizz Beats held her around her waist. Jay-Z and Beyonce clapped and sang along but did not stand as close to each other. Mary J Blige was with her husband and kneeled on the ground to get a closer look at the singer. Comedian Chris Rock had a weird look on his face during the entire performance and Jay-Z at times put his arm on his shoulder to take it all in. Lauryn also brought all of her children on stage and said: "Now you know why I've been gone for so long" as the crowd laughed.  Photos: Splash News Online

MORE pics after the break!

Before the celebs came out, mama Lauryn brought 3 of her children onstage.

Afterwards, a very exhausted Alicia Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz were spotted leaving the venue in NYC.

That kid is riding low, which means it's a boy.

  • IsaiahsMom

    I don't trust Kendu... :no:
    He'd better be treating my girl MJ right :shotsfired:

    They all look like they had a BLAST! Lauryn does look stinky though... :hurl: too pretty of a woman to be looking like someone's granny.

  • tintin1979

    Chris Rock, i can't wait for the next standup routine. clearly lauryn's voice is a little off. Lauryn looks horrible. A Keys is so pretty pregnant. Mary and Kendu look like they're trying to fool everyone.

  • iyonah

  • IsaiahsMom

    Lauren's kids are cutie pies!

  • lexdiamonz

  • Al-Ameera

    AKeys looks good. Pregnancy agrees with her.

  • jazi65

    me no likey AK's outfit but she's got a beautiful glow.

    Lauryn :blink:

    There are some people who still flawless w/o make up... bey is not one of them.

    Mary - that fishbowl hairstyle is getting tiresome.

  • Cinderella

    That's nice they all came out to see Lauryn perform. Her babies are beautiful.

  • renegadesince1985

    :rofl: @ Chris Rock's face....hahaha

    I love Lauren...and I don't care what she wears...when you have real talent you can wear whatever the hell you want and people still buy your album. That being said....."what in the wilona woods hell she go on !" :lol:

    A.Keys looks cute and very preggo...

  • Man, I just don’t care™


    It's sexy when a woman can handle that iron!

  • FloridaChick813

    @Rene, what are you shootin chick??? I have a pink and black 22 && a chrome and black 380 :shotsfired:

  • Jay3088

    Lol @ Chris Rocks Face :rofl:

  • Smokie

    Alicia Keys is making ME want to be pregnant again. She looks great. LMAO @ Chris Rock! Bey and Jay probably aren't standing next to each other bc they are an old married couple now and they were just up under each other for 2 weeks straight on the yacht. I know they need some breathing room now.

    SMH @ Lauryn Hill. She looks super HOT and I mean that in the funky way. All that fast singing and talking too... she aint back.


    L- Boogie is baaaaack... They ain't ready for her.

    From whatI see she got great reviews.

  • yellamama

    Looks to me as if Chris Rock was squinting because of the sun - not making faces because of something else....Kendu looks to be squinting as well....Almost everyone else had on sunglasses....

  • 2thick4u

    LMAO at Chris Rocks facial expressions :rofl: !!!

    Lauryn Hill is an amazing artist...can't wait 2 support her next album!!

  • renegadesince1985

    In that pic I'm shooting a Ruger 9 mil.....that's our practice gun. We've got a Taurus .25, a Para Ordinance .45 and a Sig Sauer 556 rifle....oh and a Bushmaster. We are PRO Guns 'roun here!!! :thumbsup:

  • amatrex

    Lauren gotta be hot with all that clothing on.

  • FloridaChick813

    Same here @Rene :lol:

    Hell, I need to feel safe at all times! I shot a 9 mili at the gun range, but it had a little too much kick for me.

  • pointhimout

    yeah chris and kendu both looking like something aint right. those are not the faces of onlookers enjoying the show. too funny. all that money in one corner of the stage, deducting IRS liens and tax woes, but still.

  • mirsmommy

    Oooooh, L-Boogie, what are you wearing???? :shrugs:

    :rofl: @ Chris Rock's facial expression!!!!

  • renegadesince1985


    No!! What kind did you shoot? You may need to try one with a longer barrel cause it absorbs more of the kick... I don't like shooting hubby's .45 cause the barrel is so short there's more kickback than I like....

  • Ace

    "Lauryn also brought all of her children on stage and said: “Now you know why I’ve been gone for so long” as the crowd laughed."

    Didn't she say the same thing in "Dave Chapelles' Block Party" back in what 05'

  • FloridaChick813

    Awwww, my boo has a .45 too :yes: And I def. dont shoot that, cause let me tell you. It scares me. I catch myself closing my eyes when I shoot that thing.

  • FloridaChick813


    I enjoyed Dave Chapelle's Block Party :yes: How about the wierd lady that lived in that building??? :/

  • kcicero

    #teamlauryn she looked great! I truly hope she can make a comeback....not to reclaim a throne but just to put out good music that I can listen to 10 years from now!

  • yvonne79

    I :love: Alicia's sandals....

  • TruGemini

    Chris Rock always has some akward look on his face...This one doesn't read disgust, though.

  • Bird

    Little Mini Lauren is too adorable for words. I'm glad the big wigs came out to support the sista so she can go ahead and get in the studio. I wouldn't be mad at a Lauren/Mary J. collabo.

  • Daisy

    @iscream I needed that laugh :rofl:

    @jazi I agree w/u I don't like akeys jumper/romper but she looks FAB all the same

    #teamLauryn :cheer:

  • lakercrazy

    good morning sr fam

  • Val

    why was mary's husband looking at Beyonce like that in the first picture.. idk why, but he reminds me of a pervert.. watch dat Mary!!

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOO @ Chris Rock.. he looks disgusted

  • Choco

    IDK but uhh they all look to close for comfort- and Chris looking like someone STANK!

  • aqtpie

    :rofl: @Kendu's and Chris' facial expressions!!

  • Lady_L

    Alicia looks really her sandels...

    Mary and Kendu looked "forced"...

  • pinky2083

    Looks like a good time.

    Beyonce looks sweaty.

    A Keys looks super cute.

    Sandra just because she's low does NOT mean it's a boy. She could've dropped because she's almost due. I've seen plenty of low carrying women lately that had girls, i.e. me. :)

  • Ace


    Yeah Da Block party was surprisingly good...and Ms. Hill & The Fuguees Set it off..but my Fav performance was Mos Def..very talented dude right there.

    That couple that lived in the crayz ass house seemed a little off to they didn't want to let their free spirit dayz of the late 60s early 70s go. Place didnt look up to code personally.

  • Tyzgurl

    Chris Rock & Kendu's facial expressions doesn't exude negativity to boyfriend makes that same stank face when he hears an awesome perfomance from a band. Especially live. It can be a guitar solo, drums, keyboard...whatever........

  • militaryspouse1

    Glad they came out to support my girl. Everyone looked nice but I wish Mary would take that blond hair out

  • CorporateHoodB-tch

    I don't even wear flat shoes but I'd rock the hell outta A-Keys sandals.

  • pinksghetti

    LOL at Chris Rock and Mary J.'s husband's face in the 2nd picture. They both look like they smelled something or trying to figure out what is going on with Ms. Hill. Lauryn's children are cute. Hopefully she can make a comeback if she wants one. A. Keys looks nice pregnant her body shape seemed like she would get really out of shape but so far so good. (She's thick legged like me so I can say that, LOL).

    @Tyzgurl, you're right I have seen people make that face when they are into a song.

    @militaryspouse1, I would love to see that hairstyle disappear on Mary too.

  • SouthernPrincess

    The look on Chris and Kendu's face is funny as all get out
    No matter how long and how crazy Lauryn Hill has been over the years that woman can still draw a crowd.
    I cant wait for her to make a killer cd...i still listen to miseducation

  • MzAkatude

    I want to see a video of Lauryn I miss her so much! Also great pic of A Keys! She is so pretty prego she has to be having a boy because she is looking great, ya know having a girl makes ya ugly when you are prego!

  • MzAkatude

    Chris Rock looks like Jay Z might stink!

  • QuettaV

    I luv me some Lauryn Hill yes I do, but if the Bish don't stop dressing like she just tried out for the next Ringlin Barnum Bailey Circus act!

  • QuettaV

    Kendu looking like what in the hell is she wearing??? Where is that fly azz chick from the Fugee's????

  • DeliciousOne

    I like Alicia pregnant. She seems more cool to me for some reason ans Swizz looks good too. Congrats to them both!

  • Val

    Im all for self expression.. but WTF does lauren have on... can she get any more weird???

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. What a group picture-- Mary J, Alicia, JZ, Chris Rock, Bey and the talented, talented, talented Lauryn Hill! That's my girl. IMO, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was the greatest CD of alllllllllllll time. To bad no one followed her lead out the morose hip/hop/rap culture.
