What better way to kick off the weekend than with impromptu performances by multi award-winning artists Usher and Chris Brown? Well, that’s exactly how XS nightclub did it.
Usher and Chris Brown showed up at the Wynn Las Vegas hotspot to celebrate rapper Jermaine Dupri’s birthday on Friday, Sept. 19.
Arriving shortly after 12:30 a.m., Usher, Chris Brown and Jermaine Dupri were seated at the exclusive VIP table next to the stage. The trio was spotted hanging out with One Direction band member Niall Horan, who continues to make XS his go-to club for a night out in Las Vegas, hip-hop artist SchoolBoy Q, rock ‘n’ roller Tommy Lee, his fiancée Sofia “Sofi” Toufa and XS Managing Partner Jesse Waits.
Following Skrillex’s set, Usher and Chris Brown joined the DJ on stage to sing “Happy Birthday” to Jermaine Dupri. Partygoers went crazy as the two stayed on the mic to perform their hit song, “New Flame.” Usher and Chris Brown then closed out the club as they continued to sing for another 30 minutes before heading out around 3:30 a.m.
Other notable guests include mixed martial arts fighter and former Olympic wrestler Dan Henderson, and videogame programmer and designer Markus “Notch” Persson. Throughout the night, Notch sipped on the Five Star, XS’ specialty cocktail mixed with Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23-year, Martini Gran Lusso 150th Anniversary Vermouth, D.O.M. Benedictine “Black Monk” 500th Anniversary Edition, Peychaud’s Bitters, Angostura Bitters and flamed orange oils. The $5,000 libation was delivered on a gold tray and made tableside for him to enjoy with friends.
