Nelly inaugurated Labor Day Weekend in Las Vegas last night at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at Paris Las Vegas with an explosive performance, complete with a cameo by Nicole Scherzinger.
The Hawaiian-born beauty surprised Nelly as he sang “Dilemma,” when she joined him in the DJ booth and flawlessly sang the female vocals in the song, originally performed by Kelly Rowland. Wearing a sexy cherry red dress and nude Christian Louboutin shoes, Scherzinger matched her signature Sugar Factory Couture Pop perfectly as she sang along with her friend. With Nelly’s encouragement, Scherzinger then sang an acapella version of her hit Pussycat Doll single, “Don’t Cha,” with the ladies in the club excitedly singing along.
Much to the delight of the amped crowd, Nelly performed several of his hit songs including “Air Force Ones,” “Just a Dream,” “Hot in Herre” and “Ride Wit Me.” He jumped on top of the ledge of the deejay booth, Moet Rose Champagne in hand, and gave many “shout outs” to the club; from “the beautiful shorty who’s about to get married” to “all the fellas in the room,” as well as a nod to his “beautiful co-host, Nicole Scherzinger.”
Scherzinger commented that she and Nelly were friends, and that the two have even spent some time in the studio together. Prior to their performances, Nelly and Scherzinger partied in connecting booths with their friends. Scherzinger danced on the booth and waved to excited fans, as Nelly smiled and showed off some dance moves when the DJ played some “old school,” including a mix of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.
At a nearby table in the VIP area, Flo Rida and his friends partied alongside Nelly and Scherzinger, with bottles of Moet Rose Champagne and Ciroc Vodka with mixers. Also in the VIP area were Harper Hill from CSI: New York, seven-time Pro Bowl NFL veteran Orlando Pace, Freddie Mitchell, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, James Harden from the Oklahoma City Thunder and J.J. Hardy from the Baltimore Orioles. Mitchell was recently featured on “Millionaire Matchmaker.”
