Lana Del Rey wasn’t kidding around when she said she will have something special for the audience attending her live show at Berkley’s Greek Theatre.  Three songs into her performance, the American singer decided to bring out the first surprise and invited folk icon Loan Baez to join her on stage.

Cheered by the audience, Del Rey and Baez warmly greeted each other and then went on to perform one of Baez’s most popular songs; 1975’s “Diamonds & Rust.” The pair liked sharing the stage so much that they ended up doing one more song together immediately after.

This time it was Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.” This was a fitting choice, considering that Baez actually had Dylan in mind when she wrote “Diamonds & Rust.”

Check out both songs in the fan-made video below.

But that wasn’t all that Lana Del Rey had in store for her fans. Two thirds into her performance, Del Rey invited one more guest to share the stage with her. This time it was Adam Cohen, the son of late legendary Canadian singer Leonard Cohen. The pair covered Cohen’s song “Chelsea Hotel.” Watch the full performance below.
