* Alicia Keys and Blk Jks covering the late Brenda Fassie’s Too Late for Mama. The creative producer of the show later told me this was all Blk Jks’ idea and Alicia ran with it.
* John Legend giving us the Green Light and performing with Soweto Gospel Choir and Angelique Kidjo.
* Vusi Mahlasela bringing the 30 000-strong audience to its knees with the spectacular story-telling of his song Say Africa
