Meanwhile, the nightclub featured performances from singers Puff Daddy, Lil Kim, Mase, Machine Gun Kelly, Redfoo and the Party Rock Crew, Jermaine Dupri, Mario, Busta Rhymes and Da Brat. Hip-hop singer Amber Rose joined original Tao resident DJ Vice in the deejay booth, as did “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon, who got on the mic.

Puff Daddy fueled the party with Ciroc vodka and Deleon tequila.

Rapper Jermaine Dupri, who opened the club with his birthday celebration 10 years ago, performed to close out the evening. The crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to Dupri, who turns 43 on Sept. 23.
