#1Best: Superjam's Insane Surprise Guests

The Saturday night Superjam was already one of the festival's highlights thanks to Jim James, John Oates, Sly & the Family Stone's Larry Graham and Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard delivering hip-shaking covers of rock and soul classics.

But the entire night was turned up to 11 when R. Kelly and Billy Idol—both of whom had just finished full headlining sets—swung by the intimate Superjam tent. Kellz killed Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" while Idol fronted a crunchy jam on T. Rex's "Bang a Gong (Get It On)." The only thing more jaw-dropping than the surprise of seeing them was how incredible it sounded when these stylistically disparate artists got together to pay tribute to their mutual musical icons.
