When Will.i.am took the helm at the turntables, Nicole Scherzinger — the Pussycat Dolls lead singer and judge in this fall’s season of The X Factor — was so moved that she joined the superstar musician in the DJ booth and thrashed about showing off her sexiest dance moves.

Fans were then surprised as Lil Jon joined Will.i.am in the booth and gave an exuberant shout-out to the crowd. The music and party kept going until nearly 7pm and was indeed an auspicious beginning to a holiday weekend chock full of high-powered DJs and producers slated to perform at Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub.
