It may have been pouring rain outside, but under the rooftop tent at Global TV's annual 'Entertainment Tonight Canada' TIFF party, will.i.am was lighting a fire under the feet of the film festival elite with an unorthodox mix of MCing and DJing that felt more like a private karaoke session than a celebrity spin set.

While fellow musicians K'naan, Kardinal Offishall and Fefe Dobson -- who told PopEater that she was excited to reconnect with the Black Eyed Peas mastermind after a year absence -- watched, the media mogul took to the mic several times throughout his set.

He sang along with -- or rather, on top of -- such wide-ranging musical fare as Lips Inc.'s 'Funkytown,' Dick Dale's 'Misirlou' and several Black Eyed Peas numbers, with 'I've Got A Feeling' generating the biggest response from the sauced-up, open bar crowd.
