LAX Nightclub at the Luxor had the Memorial Day weekend festivities in full gear when the nightclub welcomed the stunning Keri Hilson.

Hilson arrived just before 2 a.m. with fans cheering as the pop star entered the club wearing layered gold cross chains, sunglasses and leather capri pants dressed up with cheetah accessories from head-to-toe. After shaking hands with her fans, she made her way into her VIP booth, where she posed for pictures and took in the excitement from the packed room.

Just before the singer took the mic, DJ Mars, her personal emcee, pumped up the crowd playing throwback remixes by Faith Evans and her producer and close friend Timbaland. As she began her powerful set just after 2 a.m., Hilson welcomed her fans by asking, “Who’s ready to party with me tonight? Let me hear you sing with me on this one LAX,” as she started in with her hit record “The Way I Are.”

The main room soared with excitement as Hilson let her fans finish the last few lyrics as she made her way down the main stairway to get up close and personal to her fans. She paused for a moment to acknowledge one of her devoting supporters signaling her from the crowd as he took off his bow tie and insisted she keep it. Much obliged and sporting a huge smile, she gave the garment to her security guard to keep at her VIP booth.

Continuing her performance, Hilson began her fan favorite “Turnin’ Me On” followed by “Knock You Down,” where she extended the mic onto the dance floor for the entire room finish the song. Hilson took a moment to share a personal experience as she provided her fans with a few words on how she discovered her inner beauty. “You are only as pretty as you feel,” she said and began to pick a few lucky ladies to join her on stage. “This one is for all my pretty girls out there,” Hilson exclaimed and began her empowering anthem “Pretty Girl Rock.”

The gracious vocalist had LAX Nightclub on their feet as she put on an awe-inspiring performance for the holiday weekend. Before making her way back to her VIP booth, she thanked her fans for all of their love and support as she ran across the main stage reaching out to touch the hands of her thrilled followers.

Later on in the evening, Hilson was joined by her beau Serge Ibaka, the 6-foot-10 power forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The loving couple was spotted cuddling at her VIP booth as Hilson spent the rest of the night laughing with her main man and sipping on cocktails with close friends.
