Blood Orange brought out a bunch of badass women during his FYF 2016 set

Coachella may have the special guest game cornered, but Dev Hynes—better known as Blood Orange—almost single-handedly raised the surprise appearance bar at FYF 2016.

During a Sunday afternoon set sprinkled with sexy dance moves and what sounds like a lost soundtrack to New York in the '80s, Hynes rolled out one powerful voice after another.

The slate of singers should look familiar to any fans of this year's Freetown Sound: Zuri Marley for "Love Ya," Empress Of on "Icon," and, in the afternoon's first big surprise, Carly Rae Jepsen came out to perform "Better than Me."

With a slight diversion from the Freetown Sound tracklist, LA's own Sky Ferreira came out to the piano strains of her song "Everything is Embarrassing," which Hynes helped pen. Afterwards, she joined in on a Blood Orange track, during which Hynes endearingly embraced her as she let a few lines from the lyric sheet slip by.

But the biggest surprise came last, as Nelly Furtado flew out from backstage to perform "Hadron Collider."
