Best of Coachella (Pictures)

Coachella is the shit. I don't know really how else to put it. It takes all the best bands in the world, sets them up for an epic weekend, and lets all hell break loose. I WILL make it there one day!

So instead of doing a long winded recap of the weekend, I will just highlight some of the pictures that are surfacing now. What other festival brings all these people together? Oh yeah right, none. 

Lauryn Hill showed up on time, and gave a stellar performance of some of her old classics. 

Kanye West towered above the crowd (just how he likes it) to open his festival-closing show. Watch!
Its a bird. Its a plane. Nope just Kanye West. 

Cee Lo Green kept it simple in the heat, eschewing all of the costumes he's become known for sporting (and sweating in) during his live performances.
I hear that C.Lo Green showed up late and had his performance cut to 20 min. Who do you think you are? You are not the biggest star of the weekend. Moving on.

Mumford & Sons continued to assert their newfound omnipresence by delivering one of Day Two's most memorable sets.
Mumford & Sons had one of the bigger crowds of the weekend during their set on Saturday night. 

Erykah Badu. 'Nuff said.
Erykah Badu. Enough said.

She didn't take the stage, but Rihanna watched from the front row.
Rihanna while not an actual performer caught the show from side-stage.

Ditto for Kelly Osbourne.
Kelly Osbourne also looked like she was enjoying herself. 

The Black Keys dominated. No surprise. 

He may bust it up on stage, but Usher was a rather subdued audience member during Empire of the Sun.
Its always nice to see other stars take in their friends music. Here is Usher.

One of my new favorites, Robyn performs. 

Looks like it was a good time; sad I missed it!
