They are the collision-course warriors of hip-hop and currently hailed in the music industry as two of the biggest entertainers on the planet.

Pitbull and Ke$ha brought their "Warrior Tour" to Mandalay Bay on Saturday night, and fans gave them a roaring sold-out welcome.

Ke$ha really proved her place in the spotlight with her fierce attitude and rap technique. She turned heads in her wild stage antics and sexy costumes for "Tik Tok," "Your Love Is My Drug," "Die Young" and "We R Who We R".

The ongoing co-headlining concert North American tour is a promotion for both Pitbull's album, Global Warming and Kesha's album, Warrior , both released in November. The tour started on May 23 in Boston and is scheduled to close June 28 in Tampa. It has become one of the biggest box-office hits this year.

Thanks to contributing photographer Tom Donoghue who was front and center for the torrid over-heated action that sent Vegas temperatures soaring even higher.
