Australian rapper Iggy Azalea took the stage at Bovard Auditorium on Thursday night in a free concert streamed live online.

“Good to see so many ppl watched the live stream tonight!,” Azalea posted on Twitter.

The singer won in the categories of favorite artist and favorite album (rap/hip-hop) for The New Classic at last month’s American Music Awards. The Conquest Chronicles website called her “one of the newest and hottest female rap stars in the game” and noted that her boyfriend is Trojan Nick Young, who plays for the Lakers.

Thursday’s show was exclusively for USC students. Students needed to enter a promo code online to get one or two tickets; the promo code was being distributed at Yahoo booths on campus Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Students then presented their confirmation voucher at Bovard to attend.

For those who couldn’t attend in person, the concert was streamed live on the Yahoo Screen online music service.

Thursday’s concert was part of the Yahoo On the Road series, a series of free concerts on college campuses around the country. The show was the last in the 2014 series, which also showcased artists Icona Pop, Young the Giant and Charli XCX, who was featured on Azalea’s early-2014 hit Fancy.
