The Daily Grind Video

When we found out that R. Kelly was performing at the 2013 BET Awards, the first question that popped up in our head was which song the R&B legend would perform.

Would it be something new? Something old?

It turns out it was something a lot.

R. Kelly just hit the stage and performed about a dozen of his most iconic R&B hits, from “12 Play” to “Bump & Grind” to “You Remind Me” to “I Wish” to our country’s national anthem, “Ignition.”

It was a pretty epic performance, by a pretty epic singer, who was also wearing a pretty epic costume (you have to see this thing to believe it.)

Watch Kelly sing his heart out.
