Singers Justin Bieber, Miguel and Ludacris bring different parties to Las Vegas

Justin Bieber celebrates his 21st birthday two weeks late

A pop star, R&B singer and a rapper all partied in Las Vegas over the weekend, bringing their menagerie of music with them.

For Justin Bieber, it meant a 21st birthday party at the newly opened Omnia Nightclub at Caesars Palace on Saturday night. The pop star received a birthday cake shaped like a 1965 Lincoln Continental. He didn't sing a note, but did introduce deejay Martin Garrix to the crowd.

Biebs didn’t stick around though. His paid gig sent him over to the nightclub’s lounge, Heart of Omnia, where reality star mom Kris Jenner and “Scorpion” stars Katherine McPhee and Elyes Gabel were on hand to celebrate his March 1 birthday.

R&B singer Miguel was sans longtime girlfriend Nazanin Mandi when he sang at 1 OAK Nightclub at the Mirage on Friday night. He dressed the solo part too, wearing a white oversized T-shirt, black boots, dark jeans and a red scarf. Miguel sang four of his hits: "How Many Drinks," "Sure Thing," "Adorn," and "Simple Things." Athletes on hand included NFL players Dwight Freeney, Jason Taylor, Patrick Peterson and Rob Harper as well as NBA player Ray Allen.

At Surrender Nightclub at Encore Las Vegas, rapper Ludacris performed a 45-minute set on Friday night. His new album “Ludaversal” debuts on March 31, and he stars in the new "The Fast and Furious 7” coming out on April 3. His wife Eudoxie is expecting the couple’s first child and Luda’s third.
