Singer Keri Hilson rang in the New Year on Tuesday night hosting and performing at LAX in Luxor.

Hilson donned a short lace jumpsuit, layered silver jewelry and sky-high Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps and was greeted by fans upon her arrival at LAX.

As the final seconds of 2013 ticked down to the New Year, Hilson raised her glass of champagne and toasted the New Year, wishing the crowd “Happy New Year” and posing for photographs with fans.

DJ Mars, Hilson’s personal MC, pumped up the crowd playing throwback remixes by her producer and good friend Timbaland. Before Hilson began her set at 12:30 a.m., she welcomed fans: “Happy New Year’s, everyone! Who’s ready to party with me tonight?”

“Let me hear you sing with me on this one, LAX,” as she started her hit “The Way I Are” recorded with Timbaland. She also performed “Turnin’ Me On” and selected four ladies — “This one is for all my pretty girls out there” — to join her onstage for her closer “Pretty Girl Rock.”

Before returning to a VIP booth, she thanked her fans for all of their love and support: “LAX, I’m coming back this year,” hinting at what will come in the New Year.
