Where the Celebs Partied for the Grammys in LA
While we had trouble keeping our TV's tuned to the Grammy awards last night (there are only so many shots of Miley's face we can take), LA area hotels were enjoying yet another influx of big-spendin', attention-grabbin' celebs in and around their properties for the various pre and post-Grammy bashes.
Prior to the awards on Saturday, the Beverly Hilton saw some celeb action when the stars came out for Clive Davis' 30th anniversary party. According to reports, Usher was scheduled to perform but had to cancel due to an illness in the family, so Josh Groban and Whitney Houston (seriously), Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson (with Barry Manilow!) and Bill Maher were the big performers. The guest list ran the gamut from the Jonas Brothers to Kanye, who allegedly apologized for his charming rant at last year's Grammys.
Last night at the At the brand new SLS Hotel Beverly Hills, EMI Music's big Grammy after party was thrown in conjunction with Stand Up For a Cure. FOXNews.com lists the slew of celebs on hand: Coldplay's Chris Martin, Katy Perry, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Sean Stewart, and Chris Tucker.
And finally, a tipster from the Mondrian LA gave us a heads up about what went down at the hotel last night:
Janelle Monae performed an incredible set at SKYBAR at Mondrian in LA last night. Her performance was soulful, energetic and alluring; ending with her diving in the pool and climbing the tree in the outdoor venue. Tony from No Doubt stated that her performance was "legendary" and will be talked about for years to come.
Also in attendance: Janelle Monae, Tony from No Doubt, Questlove, Grandmaster Flash, Murs, Saul Williams and Talib Kweli. Yes, Grandmaster Flash is still hitting the Grammy party circuit. Amazing.
