Rapper headlines first night of 2010 event
The rapper played for around an hour and twenty minutes for his show and, as well as West, was joined by Mr Hudson during the performance.
Earlier in the show, Jay-Z, sporting black shorts, shirt and sunglasses, introduced rapper Memphis Black to guest on various songs and also asked security guards to go easy on fans surging to the front of the arena.
Barack Obama also got a mention, with Jay-Z noting: “After 44 tries we’ve got a black president, we changed the world. And somebody in this field will change the world.”
He exited the stage to enormous cheers, finding time to praise Florence And The Machine, who had played before him, closing the first night of the festival for 2010.
