Las Vegas nightclubs were the place to be this past weekend as one rapper, musician and hip hop artist after another performed and partied at some of the hottest nightclubs on the Strip including The Bank in the Bellagio, Haze in Aria and Body English in the Hard Rock Hotel.  Here’s more from this weekend’s celebrity sightings:

Ryan Leslie performed at The Bank Nightclub in the Bellagio on Friday night. The singer first enjoyed dinner at Yellowtail with his entourage before heading to the Las Vegas nightclub. After enjoying some drinks, Ryan finally took to the stage and performed his unreleased single “Higher” followed by “Addiction.” He then sang his #1 hit “Diamond Girl” and finished with “Black Mozart.” After his performance, Ryan posed for photos with fans.

And speaking of music artists, rapper T-Pain kicked off his DJ residency “House of Pain” at Haze Nightclub at the Aria on Saturday. After arriving at the nightclub around 12:30 a.m., “The Buy You a Drank” singer immediately began posing with fans before stepping inside the DJ booth where he performed a high energy set until almost 4 a.m. He even dropped a brand new single: T-Pain featuring Ace Hood and Busta Rhymes – “Come and Get It.”

Taking in T-Pain’s set at the Las Vegas nightclub was “The Bachelor” Sean Lowe. In town for work the sexy reality TV star and a group of friends settled into a private balcony booth where they drank, danced and sang along with T-Pain all night long. Despite his VIP location, a few admiring ladies managed to finagle their way into Sean’s balcony booth but Sean showed no sign of annoyance as he happily posed for photos with the fans.

Also at Haze during House of Pain was St. Louis Rams Matt Daniels, Matthew Conrath and Cortland Finnegan who was celebrating his birthday at the Las Vegas nightclub.

On Sunday, Las Vegas nightclubs saw Sean Lowe one more time when he showed up at The Bank in the Bellagio. Lowe kept it pretty low key, sipping cocktails and enjoying the beats of DJ Five throughout the night.

Also on Sunday, Hard Rock Hotel honored its newly re-opened Body English Nightclub with grand opening parties and top DJs including hip hop act De La Soul. The group headlined the celebration as fellow famous hip hop group The Alkaholics joined them onstage and rapped together for one song. Later, De La Soul rapper and producer Kelvin Mercer really pumped up the party when he jumped out into the crowd and rapped another song.

That’s all of the celebrity news I have for today. Check back tomorrow for much more.
