Kanye West joined Prince for an onstage jam session at the Way Out West festival in Sweden on Friday (August 12).

Whilst performing 'If I Was Your Girlfriend' a host of fans danced on the stage and Prince welcomed West on as well. The 'Watch The Throne' collaborator proceeded to MC from in front of the excitable fans, getting the crowd to shout 'hell, yeah'."

The festival, in Gothenburg, which ran from August 11-13, also saw sets from Fleet Foxes, Janelle Monae, Pulp, Noah And The Whale and Zola Jesus.

Last night (August 14) Kanye West shed tears during his headline at Finland's Flow Festival. The rapper was overcome with emotion when he sang 'Runaway' in front of a huge crowd on the Main Stage.

His flamboyant set featured a troupe of female backing dancers, three keyboard players, pyrotechnics and fireworks with much of his material drawing from his 2010 album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' and 2008's '808s & Heartbreak'.

During 'Homecoming' he told the crowd:

You will never see one man come to the stage with this many hits. It's all about rap music, we don't give a fuck about the press. One thing to remember there is no me without you.
