Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
New Year's weekend in Vegas is about much more than just watching a ball drop and waving goodbye to one year to usher in another -- it's about celebration, revelry, and a lineup of entertainment that you won't find anywhere else in the world.
You've also got plenty of nightlife options to fit every musical taste. Get "crunk" with Lil Jon and Steve Aoki & Lil Jon at Surrender inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas; enjoy a taste of SHM with Sebastian Ingrosso at XS inside Wynn Las Vegas; catch Laidback Luke at Haze at ARIA; witness Tinie Tempah performing at The Bank inside Bellagio, rock out with Good Charlotte & The Situation at Chateau Nightclub and Gardens inside Paris Las Vegas; DJ Pauly D spins at the Hard Rock's Vanity; Dirty South spins at TAO; or party at the Palms with T-Pain at Rain or Clinton Sparks at Moon.
On New Year's Eve, the stars come out all to ring in 2012! Keep up with the Kardashians -- Kim will be at TAO, Rob at Tryst and Kourtney and Scott Disick will host at Chateau Nightclub and Gardens -- or celebrate with "Peepshow" star Holly Madison at Gallery inside Planet Hollywood.

The stars were shining this past weekend in Las Vegas as the biggest names in daytime TV were honored and a new Miss USA was crowned.
At the Daytime Emmy Awards held at the Las Vegas Hilton, stars such as Rachael Ray and Anderson Cooper were on hand to walk the red carpet (see our photo gallery on Las Vegas' official Facebook page), and at the 2011 Miss USA Pageant at Planet Hollywood, former NFL great Marcus Allen, recording artist Tinie Tempah and DJ/producer Lil Jon (who has a residency at Surrender inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas) appeared on the red carpet. Check out more pics in our Facebook gallery and here's a few words about Vegas from 2010 Miss USA Rima Fikah hours before she gave up her crown.
