From American Idol winners to rappers and R&B stars, The Entertainment Capital of the World played host to an array of singers over the weekend. Some partied at Las Vegas nightclubs, some performed and some showed off their talents in the kitchen! Here’s who partied, sang and cooked their way through the weekend in Las Vegas:
American Idol Season Five winner Taylor Hicks hit up one of Las Vegas’ hottest nightclubs on Saturday. Hicks arrived at Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace around midnight where he took over a VIP booth with his band members and friends. Hicks spent the evening meeting fans and posing for photos until the early hours of Sunday morning. The singer has been enjoying his new found fame with a new headliner show at Bally’s.
Meanwhile, legendary R&B artist Ginuwine greeted party-goers with an energetic performance at LAX Nightclub in MGM Grand. The singer arrived at the Las Vegas nightclub just after 1 a.m. kicking off his mini-concert with his hit “Hell Yeah.” He then launched into a mashup of his hits that included “Differences,” “In Those Jeans,” “Pony” and an A Capella version of “So Anxious” as a part of the performance.
Throughout the mini-concert, Ginuwine showed off his dance moves, ran through the crowd, high-fiving club-goers and jumped on a few VIP tables, much to the delight of his fans. He ended the performance telling the crowd that he was thankful for all of their support over the past 16 years and that he was starting a new R&B group called TGT with Tyrese Gibson and Tank. He then spent the rest of the evening in a VIP booth, meeting and posing with fans.
