Several all-star collaborations went down during Jay-Z's concert at London's Royal Albert Hall last night, including one with Hov and Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

According to the BBC News Gwyneth Paltrow sang the chorus of "Song Cry" much to the amazement of many in the audience.

"She was a bit nervous but her performance was really excellent," DJ G Money told the BBC. "People were like: 'Who is this chick that's in the spotlight?' Then Jay-Z said: 'I want people to wish a happy birthday to my good friend Gwyneth Paltrow'."

Paltrow's husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin also joined Jay-Z on stage to help perform a currently untitled song from Jay-Z's forthcoming Kingdom Come album and also lent his vocals to a performance of "Heart of the City (Ain't No Love)."

While Chris Martin's appearance was rumored ahead of the show, Paltrow's had not been anticipated at all.

Hip-Hop royalty Nas and Beyoncé also made onstage appearances during the course of the evening. Jay-Z was backed by a 25-piece orchestra and a DJ. The evening has already been marked as the historic first hip-hop event held at Royal Albert Hall.

Jay-Z's first post-retirement album Kingdom Come is due out in November.
