After walking down the aisle Saturday under the magnolia trees at Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu, Fergie and Josh Duhamel had a star-studded concert awaiting them at their champagne reception.

“Kid Rock was there with will.i.am rapping,” Fergie’s mother, Terri Jackson, said during an interview on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show Monday. “It was an amazing show. It would cost you a fortune – and I’m sure it did – to see this show.”

Another surprise performer: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star (and Fergie’s childhood friend) Alfonso Ribeiro, who performed Michael Jackson’s smash “Billie Jean.”

“He was amazing,” Terri Jackson said. “That guy can sing! Fergie and he have been friends for years.”

Mom Oversees List

Jackson, whose voice was noticeably hoarse from partying, waxed enthusiastic about the entire wedding. She especially raved about her daughter’s Dolce & Gabbana dress, telling Seacrest, “They deserve all the accolades.”

The mother of the bride confirmed that there were about 350 or 375 guests in attendance, but said that she had to enforce a strict guest list – especially when it came to invitees bringing cameras – and dates.

“I got calls from every friend [and] relative [saying], ‘What do you mean I cant bring a camera? I won’t sell the pictures to the paparazzi’,” she said.

As for the expansive guest list, Jackson said with tongue in cheek, “They couldn’t bring a date unless they paid me money or something.”
