WATCH: The Weeknd Brings Kanye West Out During His Coachella Set

There’s nothing like having a guest artist come out at a concert. Last summer I went to the Hollywood Bowl to see Billy Joel, and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Gavin DeGraw was opening for him, though he wasn’t featured on the lineup.
