Las Vegas has hosted residencies from some of the biggest names in the music industry. From Celine Dion to Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Elton John, Vegas is a place to showcase these musicians’ greatest hits, vocals, dance moves and high-energy. As Vegas continues to constantly change-up its entertainment options, we thought we’d share a few celebrities we’d love to see with a Vegas residency:
Detroit rapper Eminem would likely have much to say about the Vegas Strip and a residency here, and we’d love to hear it! His rapping skills and raw realism might just be the one thing Vegas is missing.
What Vegas audience wouldn’t love being serenaded by Lauren Hill? Couple Hill’s vocals with artists Wyclef Jean and Pras and you have a sold-out residency. The Fugees catalogue of songs would fit nicely into one of Vegas more intimate showrooms.
Of all the artists on this list we think Drake would be the biggest fit for a Vegas residency. The singer is the ultimate entertainer and has plenty of charm and hit songs to make a residency a must-see.
Charm, charisma and stellar dance moves put Usher on our list of must-have Vegas residencies. The “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” singer has a hot list of songs that audiences would go crazy over.
Kelly Clarkson has given Vegas some concerts over the years, but we think she’d be great with a Vegas residency. The winner of American Idol’s inaugural season in 2002, Clarkson has pumped out some big hits including “Stronger!” “Since U Been Gone!” “Already Gone” and more. Her bold voice and soulful pop and pop-rock style is the right fit for a large Vegas theater, plus everybody loves her.
Justin Timberlake is one of the most popular male singers around. The ’90’s pop icon has everything Vegas-goers love - dance moves, sex appeal, and chart-topping hits. Like his ex-Britney Spears, Timberlake’s residency would sell-out regularly.
Pink’s Cirque du Soliel-esque performances are a perfect fit for a Vegas residency. Couple that with the singer’s chart-topping hits, and her dedication to putting on a thrilling performance and Pink is an ideal Vegas residency candidate.
