If it's summer, it must be Flo Rida on the TODAY plaza! On Friday, the superstar rapper/singer/all-around big personality kicked off off our Independence Day weekend the right way by taking to the stage and turning on the heat.

Flo Rida is a regular visitor to TODAY; he brought the bling and the tunes to the plaza last August, taking the Twizzler challenge with Hoda Kotb, and performed in the studio in April, among his many amazing appearances. But on Friday he was back where he belongs: rockin' it on the plaza in front of hundreds of excited fans by playing hits like "G.D.F.R.," Wild Ones" and "Good Feeling."

That had the TODAY anchors (and Ellie Kemper!) grooving along:


And it looks like some of those fans were excited for someone else hanging around for the show, too:

Robin Thicke! The "Blurred Lines" singer joined Flo onstage for "I Don't Like It, I Love It," and that was exactly how we felt about the tune, too.

Stay tuned for all the hot jams and cool grooves to put you in the right mind for a celebratory weekend! We'll post videos and tweets up here, so keep coming back for updates all morning.
