During her set, which included a cameo from rap newcomer Sharaya J, the Work It hitmaker asked fans to hold up the light on their cell phones for a special tribute.

Before performing For My People, she said, "Shout out to Tupac, Biggie, Left Eye, Jam Master Jay, and Aaliyah. I do this for my girl Aaliyah. Aaliyah, we miss you," as a photograph of the late singer appeared behind her.

Elliott's set on the main stage brought the event to an end, closing with a blaze of fireworks.

It was her first U.K. concert since she performed at the Wireless festival in 2010.

Sunday marked the 19th anniversary of the death of rap legend Shakur.
