The Virginia native was backed by a troop of dancers all while performs classic hits like “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)”, “Get Ur Freak On”, “Hot Boyz” & more. She surprised the audience when she performed “Work It” & brought out Alyson Stoner who was a little girl at the time when she appeared in the music video in 2002.
