If one thing could stop the audience from booing about Big's absence it was Dave Chappelle. Truly, he didn't even have to tell funny jokes for the audience to love him. So he did just that. Massive applause and cheers greeted him. Chappelle talked about how as a young black kid he did not have the opportunity to attend musical performances where people bounced beach balls in the audience. He then booted a beach ball into the crowd. Everyone lost their shit. Big Boi did not take the stage.
