Rap star Nelly gave his fans an extra treat during last Friday night's (08AUG03) performance, when he brought out pals LIL' KIM, Kelly Rowland and Brian McKnight as surprise guests.

The HOT IN HERRE hitmaker and his rap collective ST LUNATICS staged a sold-out concert at the UNIVERSAL AMPHITHEATRE in Los Angeles, and in addition to thrilling the hundreds of fans who packed the venue with his string of hits, Nelly also brought fellow rapper Lil Jon from behind the stage, before being joined by Lil' Kim.

While the pair only came out to greet the excited crowd, R+B crooner McKnight stepped out from the wings to perform his collaboration with Nelly, ALL NIGHT LONG.

But the high point of the show came at the very end when Destiny's Child beauty Rowland waltzed onto the stage to perform her chart-topping hit DILEMMA with Nelly. Clad in a fitted light blue vest top, a short denim skirt and silver strappy sandals, Rowland gyrated with Nelly as she belted out the 2002 love song, drawing frenzied screams from the audience.

Nelly also displayed his generous side during the show when he gave five fans $100 (GBP62) each for their efforts at performing the popular Chickenhead Dance.
