Mary J. came out with her notorious dance moves, she and Puff even had a dance off. She then performed “Real Love,” “Be Happy” “Love No Limit” remix and more. She then thanked Puff for taking a chance on her and making her a star. Puff then thanked her and said there would be no Bad Boy Records without her.
