In town for the Billboard Music Awards, will.i.am of the GRAMMY® award-winning group the Black Eyed Peas performed two electrifying DJ sets at PURE Nightclub inside Caesars Palace and then again at WET REPUBLIC at MGM Grand before heading to the awards show.
With his first appearance at PURE Nightclub on Saturday night, the Black Eyed Peas frontman arrived at the jam-packed mega-club in a stunning black jacket, silver v-neck top, black pants and silver studded loafers. After posing for photos on the red carpet, will.i.am was escorted to his VIP table located right next to the DJ booth. Before hitting the decks, the artist sipped on a few drinks and partied with friends including Black Eyed Peas member apl.de.ap. He then hopped in the DJ booth and welcomed the crowd to his party as the energetic crowd cheered him on as he started spinning his funky beats, which included remixes of the latest hits by The Black Eyed Peas such as “Boom Boom Pow,” “Just Can’t Get Enough,” “I Gotta Feeling” and “Rock That Body.” He also played his remixes on popular hit songs including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and LMFAO’s “Party Rock.” But the energy in PURE Nightclub soared through the roof when he sang along to one of the group’s most recent chart topping hit “The Time (Dirty Bit).” The packed house flawlessly sang the chorus to will.i.am and apl.de.ap as they applauded their fans. After a non-stop three hour DJ set, will.i.am partied the rest of the night with his friends.
WET REPUBLIC at MGM Grand welcomed will.i.am as he took over the DJ booth and performed an exhilarating live set for the bikini-clad crowd. With fellow BEP members apl.de.ap and Taboo by his side, the multi-talented artist set the turntables ablaze at Las Vegas’ hottest pool party destination as he dominated the venue’s ongoing Sunday soiree F*** Me I’m Famous! with his electric house beats including a playful rendition of Duck Sauce’s “Barbara Streisand” and Britney Spears’ “Till The World Ends” and LMFAO’s “I’m in Las Vegas B**tch!” He ended his set just after 4 p.m. in order to head over to MGM Grand to attend the awards show where the Black Eyed Peas are nominated for several awards including Top Pop Artist, Top Dance Artist, Top Duo Group and Top Pop Album.
