International pop music sensation Rita Ora hosted Tao Nightclub at the Venetian on Saturday night. Donning a floral print Kye dress, Ferragamo boots and jewelry by Ambush, Ora posed for a few shots on the red carpet and took photos with fans before joining friends in the restaurant, where the group dined on signature favorites.

After dinner, they made their way into the nightclub, where DJ Five led the charge in the deejay booth. As he announced Ora’s arrival, the club cheered and all eyes turned to the pop star, sparking a camera phone frenzy. The songstress and friends overlooked the dance floor from their VIP booth and took in the high energy club scene including Tao’s bottle fairy, who amazed Ora with her flying acrobatics.

Later in the night, she jumped on the mic and took to the stage, treating guests to a surprise performance of hit songs “Radioactive” and “RIP.” Ora captivated the packed room as hands filled the air and fans sang along to every lyric.

Also spotted at Tao was 90210’s Jessica Lowndes, who stopped by Ora’s table in the dining room to say hello to the singer, who once guest starred on the TV show. Lowndes and friends, including new boyfriend model and former rugby player Thom Evans, enjoyed favorites including satay bass, crispy rice, Kung Pao chicken and more before heading up to the nightclub.  They did celebratory shots in honor of Evans’ upcoming 28th birthday on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day she soaked up the sun at Tao Beach, drinking Skinny Girl Margaritas and snacking on Lobster Tacos.

Twilight star Kellan Lutz treated his father Brad to a special birthday dinner at Tao, where they had a dinner of yellowtail jalapeño, Buddha chicken and sushi topped with a birthday dessert.

At Lavo at the Palazzo, actor AJ Buckley shared appetizers and entrees with fiancé Abigail Ochse, who was celebrating a birthday on Saturday. They later hit Tao Nightclub.

On Friday night, Tulisa Contostavlos was spotted at Tao Nightclub. The “X Factor UK” judge commanded a VIP table with her friends and danced throughout the night.
