Filled with a roaring energy, Jojo Siwa opened up “Can’t Cancel Pride” as an enlivened emcee, exciting the crowd for the incredible musical acts that were to follow. Decked out in typical Jojo Siwa style, the hostess with the mostest started the show off strong and continued throughout the night with that exact same energy.
Big Freedia & Ciara Looking Like $100 Bills
Big Freedia and Ciara opened up the night with a smooth and hyped up version of their song “$100 Bill,” making everyone in the audience feel expensive.
Mariah Carey Has a Special Message
After Big Freedia and Ciara’s big opening number, Jojo Siwa introduced the queen and legend herself: Mariah Carey. The OG had some loving words for one of her favorite and loudest communities that have always supported her.
Kesha Rouses Everyone With “Only Love”
Kesha always brings the house down, and with a stripped-down stage, she brought full production to her song “Only Love Can Save Us Now,” sending a powerful message that love can heal all.
Sasha Colby Makes a Big Entrance
As soon as the lights changed on Jojo Siwa, we knew that something big was about to happen. And then RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15’s winner Sasha Colby walks in, earning absolute raves from the emcee. With a strong message to send, Sasha definitely stole the show.
Kelsea Ballerini is Going Down Too
Kelsea Ballerini, one of our favorite allies of the LGBTQ+ community, had a strong message of support for all of her friends in the community. Singing her “IF YOU GO DOWN (I’M GOING DOWN TOO),” she knows how to take care of her people.

Singing his own rendition of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero,” Adam Lambert brought a sensual sex appeal to the “Can’t Cancel Pride” stage, queering a rock classic for a new community of listeners.
Hayley Kiyoko Gives the “Greenlight”
The perfect dance track doesn’t exist. That’s what we all thought before Hayley Kiyoko came out and performed “Greenlight” for the “Can’t Cancel Pride” audience. With dancers in tow, Kiyoko sported some great dance moves to match her song’s quick beat.
Maybelle Blair Passes the Baton
Jojo Siwa was surprised to see baseball icon and inspiration for A League of Their Own Maybelle Blair show up to pass the baton to her as a new LGBTQ+ icon for the community. We loved the sweet moment they shared on stage and the Pride story that Maybelle shared with audiences.
Billy Porter “Was a Dancer”
One of the most rousing numbers from “Can’t Cancel Pride” was Billy Porter’s “Baby Was a Dancer” that included a ballroom-inspired dance break with Porter’s dancers. We loved the message at the end that Porter provided to the audience about inclusivity and his message of love for the HIV community.
