Mary J. Blige and Trey Songz wrapped up the 2014 BET Experience Sunday (June 29) at the Los Angeles Staples Center, bringing to an end three nights of live R&B and hip hop.

Sevyn Streeter, Mack Wilds and TGT opened the Candy Crush-sponsored show, followed by Jennifer Hudson, who debuted her latest single, "Walk It Out." Along with the new music, Hudson brought out Ne-Yo as a special guest, and belted out fan favorites like "Spotlight" and "Where You At." The 32-year-old ended things with a performance of "And I Am Telling You."

Songz did a run-through of tracks from his last three albums including "I Need A Girl," "Heart Attack" and "Say Aaah," but a good portion of his set was dedicated to surprising the crowd. The "Na Na" singer brought out Chris Brown, Tyga, August Alsina and Ty Dolla $ign to share the spotlight with him before he handed the baton over to MJB.

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul doesn't disappoint on stage, and she may have topped herself at the BET Experience. Blige took it back to her "Real Love" days with dance routines and performances of just about all of her classics ("Not Gon' Cry" "I'm Goin' Down" "I Can Love You," "Just Fine" and "No More Drama" among them). She also debuted a few new songs from the Think Like a Man 2 soundtrack, which serves as her 12th studio album.
