1/2 of Xscape (LaTocha and Tamika Scott) were on hand.  While we know that LaTocha will be on "R&B Divas" next season, we can’t help but miss seeing Kandi Burruss and Tameka "Tiny" Harris in this pic.  Oh wells.  We’re SURE Kandi won’t be showing up for the concert as there’s still mixed feeling between her and the Scott sisters.
