This year’s Philly 4th of July Jam was absolutely amazing! Host Marlon Wayans kicked of the star studded event by introducing performers Ed Sheeran, Nicki Minaj, Aloe Blacc, The Roots and Jennifer Hudson. Then there was a gorgeous display of fireworks to celebrate the fun-filled night and of course, Independence day!
The greatest Independence Day party is of course the Philly 4th Of July Jam. But when these artists aren’t putting on a fantastic show, they like to celebrate in their own way. And as you would imagine, they go hard. We had exclusive interviews with members of the line up as they told us what their July 4th celebrations typically entail (hint: red, white, blue and awesomeness).

The 4th of July is tomorrow, people—TOMORROW! And what better what to celebrate it than with some music? Well, you’re in luck because The Philly 4th of July Jam is tomorrow and will certainly be chock-full of incredible artists—ahem: Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, and Jennifer Hudson to name a few—and rockin’ music for patriotic celebration. ‘Murica. But it’s got some pretty large shoes to fill after last year’s extravaganza. Take a look!

The Philly 4th of July Jam is Friday and a slew of hot, hot, hot acts are slated to perform— Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson and The Roots to name a few. Oh! Did we mention Nicki Minaj will be there too? Yup—the reigning queen of rap will be gracing us with her presence.
Besides putting on rockin’ performances, we have a feeling artists will dress to impress at Friday’s Philly 4th of July Jam. Performer and Style King, Aloe Blacc gives us his favorite fashion tips, making us thing he’ll look especially sharp for the big event dubbed as the “largest free concert in America.”
It’s that time of year, people. With Independence Day fast approaching, VH1 is heading back to the City Of Brotherly Love for 2014′s Philly 4th Of July Jam. This time around, Philadelphia’s annual free holiday concert, part of the Wawa Welcome America! Festival, will be hosted by comedic actor Marlon Wayans.
It’s not to early to start thinking about your Fourth of July plans, and from the looks of this lineup, you might want to find a way to Philadelphia ASAP. Just like last year, VH1 is bringing you the very best in live entertainment with names like Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande and Aloe Blacc.
