Keri Hilson, The Gym Class Heroes and Keyshia Cole WGCI Big Jam

-A.S. The only reason I knew who Keri Hilson was when she took the stage was because she was featured on Timbaland’s “The Way I Are.” Taking the stage with two danceres and a DJ, it was the first song she did and the last song I recognized during her short set. She dedicated a ‘special’ song to Chicago, but it couldn’t have been that special. I had no idea what it was.

Travis McCoy needs some new banter material, he used all of the same lines here at the Congress Theater in October.

The Gym Class Heroes didn’t vary their show from when they opened up for the Roots. Travis McCoy even recycled his banter, asking everyone in the stadium to hug the person next to them. They played hits off their new album, The Quilt, including “Peace Sign/Index Down,” “Guilty as Charged” and “Cookie Jar.” They even squeezed in their Supertramp rip off “Cupid’s Chokehold,” which also happens to be the song I drank to most often my senior year of college (thanks ZB).

Next up was Keyshia Cole (pictured right: photo by Eric Weiler), and the thousands of screaming teeny boppers were ready. As soon as she took the stage, the row of braces wearing middle school girls behind our seats erupted along with every other girl in the arena. Cole opened with the P.Diddy song “Last Night,” which she is featured on. Armed with a live band, dancers and back up singers, Cole had all the ladies in UC singing along to every song. She did baton tricks on a song dedicated to Tupac and a track that featured Lil Wayne (though he did not come out). I was more impressed with Keyshia Cole than I thought I thought I would be, but I was very ready for T Pain and Lil Wayne.

    I was working out at one of the Gold’s gyms in College Station and I saw one of the guys from Gym Class Heros there!
