Studio 54 at MGM Grand welcomed rap sensation Asher Roth for a special performance and night of partying last night after his performance at Moorea Beach at Mandalay Bay. Fans swarmed the red carpet as the “I Love College” singer arrived rocking a gray T-shirt and red Nike sneakers. The ever-gracious Roth posed for photos and mingled with fans before making his way inside the illustrious nightclub.
Roth ascended to his exclusive VIP table overlooking the lively crowd dancing to the electric sounds of DJ Homicide. The rapper surveyed the club below and threw his hands up in the air in celebration of a fun-filled night. After toasting with friends, Roth was ready to take the stage for a stellar performance unlike any other.
DJ Wreckineyez warmed up the crowd, taking it back to the old school with remixes of hits like the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” Roth and his entourage gathered to the side of the stage nodding their heads to Wreckineyez’s bumping beats.
At last, Roth took to the stage and said, “What’s up, Vegas? My name is Asher Roth, and I just want to have a little fun.” Roth then jumped into the crowd, and his fans went wild cheering for the rap star. Back on stage, Roth kicked off his three-song set with “She Don’t Wanna Man,” pulling ecstatic girls on stage and dancing along side of them.
Before his next song, Roth looked out into the club and said, “All the wonderful [Studio 54] dancers are doing a great job. Thank you very much.” The singer introduced one of his new songs, “Actin’ Up,” as fans continued to rush to the stage vying for the chance to touch the rapper’s hand and snag a picture.
Roth closed his set by singing his hit single “I Love College” as the crowd cheered and sang along, fist-pumping to his infamous lyrics. The rapper thanked the adoring crowd and returned to his VIP table to celebrate his smashing performance and party the night away with friends and fans.
