A bunch of celebs descended upon Shanghai this weekend for yet another star-studded Tmall Singles' Day Gala. The gala took place at the Mercedes-Benz Arena and was livestreamed on Youku.

Like last year's event — which included cameos from Nicole Kidman, Pharrell Williams, Kris Wu, Jessie J, Maria Sharapova and more — several big names popped by for the 2018 edition of Alibaba's Double 11 extravaganza. 

In case you somehow missed this year's four-hour e-commerce spectacle, we've recapped some of the highlights...

Japanese Beyonce impersonator Naomi Watanabe showed off her best Bey moves:

Aussie supermodel Miranda Kerr did a one-model strut down the catwalk and sang in Chinese:

Mariah Carey performed 'Emotions' and 'Hero' live (and then had a rather awkward exchange with the gala host):

Jay Chou attempted magic tricks... and plugged his new show: 

Coco Lee sang a Disney medley:

Mickey Mouse & Co. danced:

Cirque Le Soir did a shopping-themed acrobatic show:

Some world leaders gave Double 11 greetings:

Former NBA star Allen Iverson watched on as superstars Angelababy and Huang Bo joined teams Red and Blue to play basketball with giant inflatable defenders:

All-girl group Kuyang performed the song 'Buy, Buy, Buy:'

Alibaba celebrated the 10th anniversary of Singles' Day with a giant cake:

Oh yeah, and Jack Ma became a Tmall courier:
