What do Boy George, a mini CeeLo Green and Goodie Mob have in common? They were all in CeeLo’s hit new show “Loberace
” at Planet Hollywood
, which debuted this weekend to rave reviews. So much so, the show has already been extended to October. But back to Boy George’s surprise appearance.
CeeLo recently said in an interview that Boy George inspired him and that he was one of CeeLo’s music influences. So it was no surprise, CeeLo made sure to throw the flamboyant singer into his new show, or at least an excellent impersonator.
And then there was the mini CeeLo. Bouncing, singing and dancing around the stage, this character acted so much like CeeLo you believed he was actually the singer at a younger age. As he took the stage, CeeLo himself walked through the crowd singing and talking to the audience.
And lastly, and perhaps the biggest highlight of the show was when Khujo, T-MO and Big Gipp of CeeLo’s Goodie Mobb rose up from beneath the floor on a lift. The crowd instantly went wild, jumping to their feet and clapping frantically.
Walking the red carpet for the new residency was Holly Madison, Coco Austin of Peepshow
also at Planet Hollywood, Peepshow
cast members Cheaza and Josh Strickland, producers from NBC’s “The Voice,” Frank Marino from “Divas Las Vegas
,” Eric Benet, Goodie Mob, actresses Aly and A.J. Michalka among others.
