NEW YORK (AP) — Mary J. Blige, John Legend and Marc Anthony kicked off Super Bowl weekend in style by serenading a celebrity-filled crowd in Manhattan.

Hundreds of New Yorkers and visitors packed into Cipriani's 42nd Street Friday night for a party sponsored by Shape and Men's Fitness magazines. Tickets cost $2,500 per person.

Blige opened the show and had many in the crowd ignoring their dinner by the end of her energetic set, which included hits like "I'm Goin' Down," ''Good Woman Down" and an impassioned rendition of "No More Drama" that brought the crowd to its feet.

A charity auction during the dinner brought in amounts like $8,000 for a dinner for six at New York's Rao's and $4,000 for a Movado sports watch.
