It's been 12 years since D'Angelo performed a show in the United States, and the one R&B superstar who could get him up on stage after such a long hiatus was D'Angelo's longtime friend and collaborator, Questlove from the Roots.

Questlove's Saturday night performance at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, was billed as his "Superjam session" in which it was revealed only that the evening would feature '?uestlove with very special guests."

Questlove got right down to business early in his performance. "I've been waiting 12 years to say this," Questlove began, "Ladies and gentlemen, D'Angelo!"

"What I wanted to do was recreate the magic of the songwriting process at the time when I was taking residency in Electric Lady Studios,' Questlove told MTV about his vision for the special evening, during which he and D'Angelo played together for over an hour, covering songs by Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin.
