After Jay-Z popped on stage to help Justin Timberlake sing their hit duet, "Suit & Tie," during Timberlake's set on Friday, it was only fitting that the pair reunite for Jay-Z's performance of "Holy Grail" on Saturday.

The 43-year-old rapper closed out the two-day festival at Olympic Park in London on Saturday, debuting tracks from his new album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," live for the first time.

"The decibel level from the crowd skyrocketed as Justin appeared on stage, clad in a suit and T-shirt, donning a red cap," MTV UK said of the atmosphere.

Hova performed several more tracks off his album, including "Picasso Baby" and "Tom Ford." He also returned to a few of his classics, like "99 Problems" and "Empire State of Mind."

"You could have been anywhere else in the world tonight and you chose here, we appreciate that," Jay-Z told his audience, according to NME.
