Best R&B Comeback: T-Pain

The second surprise guest at Friday night's Fader Fort was T-Pain, who played an astonishing 42 songs to close out the evening. "The reason I'm here is to remind you motherfuckers who I am," he said. "We'll start off easy, but I'm gonna put some pressure on that ass." The set was nonstop energy, with constant dancing and lightning-fast medleys of his considerable hits. He didn't stop for the entire set, which ended up running long after his supposed curfew. One highlight — and there were many — was a breakneck mash-up of parts of Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" with aspects of the T-Pain-featured Rick Ross joint "The Boss."
