Cole and Hilson chat it up for a minute up in V-VIP as the bodyguard looked on.

Hilson was very friendly and photo ready for the crowd. She even busted a few dance moves and did the Stanky Leg!

"Can I take your picture, Miss Hilson?"

Cole was not as energetic and hospitable to the VIP crowd as Zoe and Hilson was. After a few pics with selected media, she was whisked of fin a corner in VIP where she remained.

This was the best pic we could get of the Grammy nominted budding superstar.

One of the Greedy Genius Boyz checkin to see if Keri Hilson was really real! LOL
