Hip-hop and R&B’s brightest stars traveled Down Under for the first date of Supafest 2011, Australia’s largest urban music festival. “Pretty Girl” Keri Hilson lit up the stage in a studded denim jacket, black bra, and cutoff shorts while performing material from her No Boys Allowed album live for the first time at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium.
Ciara wowed thousands of festivalgoers with her well-choreographed moves and tight abs as she and her troupe of dancers worked up a sweat onstage. Hip-hop hunks Nelly and Bow Wow had the ladies swooning, the latter repping for his crew in a white YMCMB T-shirt.
Timbaland pulled out of the gig at the last minute, but Game, T-Pain, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Taio Cruz, and the New Boyz made up for his absence with their lively sets. Snoop Dogg brought the West Coast to the land of Oz, closing out his performance by sharing the stage with Bow Wow on the classic “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?”
The four-date festival will also play Perth, Brisbane, and Melbourne, and is expected to attract over 100,000 music fans. Check out all the action below.
