Jay-Z had the SXSW 2012 crowd rocking as he kicked off the festival’s performances Monday night (Mar 12) in Austin, TX with a headlining concert set.

Those who weren’t able to take in the show in person were able to watch online (via YouTube) through AMEX’s new “Sync Show” platform that invited fans to tweet in all night with song requests.

Throughout the hour-and-a-half long concert, Jay-Z ran through an array of hits, like “What More Can I Say,” “99 Problems,” “Big Pimpin,” “On to the Next One,” and more, including some “Watch the Throne” tracks, and even his latest song “Glory,” which he dedicated to “all the parents in the house” in honor of his two month old daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
