Ciara kicked off her North American tour last night and Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson was among the attendees. Watch performance clips inside (including a steamy lapdance) and see the adorable tweet NFL QB Russell Wilson sent her.
Today, Ciara’s album Jackie officially arrives in stores and to support it, she kicked off her first tour in six years. Appearing at Chicago’s House Of Blues last night, the “I Bet” singer hit the stage with a live band and two background singers. Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson (above) was among the attendees who helped Ciara celebrate her return to live performing.
Although he was not able to make the show, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who brought Ciara as his date to a a White House State Dinner in honor of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, did tweet his support.
Cici, who seems to enjoy Russell’s company (and compliments) replied,
On stage at the HOB, Ciara gave a steamy performance of her most popular hits, including “Promise” and “Ride.” During one sizzling segment (captured on video) a lucky male fan got a lapdance from CiCi, prompting one envious audience member to scream out, “I Hate you!”
Watch the videos below and catch Ciara on the road before the Jackie tour concludes on May 31st in San Francisco.
