The 2015 Coachella Music & Arts Festival kicked off with performances by Azealia Banks and Jennifer Hudson. Peep the YBF chicks hit the stage inside….

This year’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival is now underway. And to kick things off, Azealia Banks hit the stage at the Empire Polo Club yesterday late afternoon with a live performance of tracks from her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste and her 1991 EP.

The Harlem raptress commanded the stage with a 45-minute set, launching her performance with “Idle Delilah,” followed by “Heavy Metal and Reflective,” “Ice Princess,” “212,” and “Chasing Time,” to name a few. Chick may talk a lot of ish off stage, but she handles business on stage too.

In between tracks, the “Yung Rapunxel” raptress yelled out to her fans, “Coachella, make some mothaf*ckin’ noise! I’m so happy to be back.”

Peep a few clips of her performance below:

Also rocking the stage….

Jennifer Hudson stormed the Gobi Stage with her powerful vocals as she performed alongside English garage duo Gorgon City.

The Oscar winner showed off her long legs in a pair of super short high-waisted black shorts paired with a sequin black and white cropped jacket with “JHUD” painted on the back.

JHud was tapped to lend her vocals on Gorgon City’s dance track “Go All Night.”

Peep a few clips from her performance below:
