R. Kelly Joins Phoenix on Stage at Coachella 2013

Watch R. Kelly Make a Surprise Coachella Appearance With Phoenix

One of the biggest Coachella rumors making the rounds at the festival this weekend was that Phoenix would welcome a special musical guest to the stage during their Saturday night set — but no one guessed it would be R. Kelly. The band is releasing their album Bankrupt! this month, their first since 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The buzz around the festival grounds was that Daft Punk might be making a surprise appearance during Phoenix's show. Daft Punk is also on the verge of releasing a long-awaited album, and the groups have surprised fans before, playing during the encore of Phoenix's Oct. 20, 2010, Madison Square Garden show.

However, after Phoenix's set ended around 12:30 a.m., the stage went dim for a couple of minutes before Kelly's voice soared out into the night and fans started rushing the stage. Kelly and Phoenix front man Thomas Mars joined forces for a spirited duet, blending "Ignition (Remix)" with the music from Phoenix's track "1901." The performance wasn't the only collaboration in the desert yesterday. Solange Knowles also took the stage to sing with The XX. To watch the Phoenix and Kelly performance, just keep reading.
