Over the past three weeks, I’ve watched some phenomenal shows, stayed at luxurious hotels and met a lot of amazing people on my coast-to-coast travels. Spending my last night on the road, watching Kelly Rowland up and personal was the perfect way to end an unforgettable and successful business trip. As you all know, Miss Rowland is and will always be my favorite ex-Destiny’s Child member. So when I found out she was performing in West Hollywood, I knew I had to make it happen for me and the rest of the Homorazzi crew.
After a trip already filled with Estelle, Kelly Clarkson, and Rihanna run-ins, I couldn’t believe my luck that Kelly Rowland was going to perform at such an intimate setting and with a bunch of gays. HOLLER. Rowland along with UK sensation, Luciana, were on tap to perform for Hype Fridays at Ultra Suede / Factory in WeHo. LA party promoter, Paul Nicholls, was responsible for this wicked lineup.
To say the club was packed would be a huge understatement. It was jam-packed with Kelly and Luciana fans. By the time Kelly took stage, I was able to work SLASH sweet talk my way to the front of the stage. WERK. Shortly after 1am, Kelly strutted her sexy hot self on stage. I have to admit, I was expecting a slew of new material from Kelly to test run. Instead, we were treated to my favorite hits from her including “Commander” and “When Loves Takes Over“. But what surprised me the most, was she started her set with her huge hit with Nelly, “Dilemma“. I had died and gone to Kelly Rowland heaven. Gotta love an old school flashback.
Rowland played with the crowd throughout her performance. She’s even more stunning in person.
Dancing her bad-ass self to “Commander”. I’m surprised I didn’t knock out a ton of people with my arm swinging to this song.
This was moments before Kelly touched my hand. I.DIED.
Taking a bow after her performance. Unfortunately, she only sang three songs. At least, they were my favorites, so I can’t complain too much.
Last fall, Nic had an opportunity to chat with Luciana for the site. If you missed it, you can check it out here.
From what I can remember, Luciana performed at least five songs. She did a fantastic job of warming up the club for Rowland. Luciana definitely won me over with her energetic performance.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area this Easter long weekend, you have to go this Friday. The incomparable Nicki Minaj is hitting the stage. I’m so tempted to fly down just for the day. That’s how fantastically epic our night was with Kelly. Definitely go early to avoid the line-up for this one. For more info, head over to www.paulnpresents.com
