Joe Jonas Hosts at Tao

After a day of soaking up the sun at Tao Beach, pop heartthrob Joe Jonas of The Jonas Brothers hosted the official 2011 Billboard Music Awards pre-party at Tao in the Venetian last night. Fans went crazy for the young superstar, even though he wasn’t with his two brothers Nick and Kevin.

One ardent admirer burst into tears after he gave her a hearty hug. Ultimate happiness! Joe’s evening started at Tao dining on signature dishes under the watchful eye of the larger-than-life Buddha. As he made his way to the nightclub, he stopped to take photographs with dozens of fans.

In the hotspot, voted Best Nightclub by USA Today with the help of Las Vegas media elite last week, girls galore grabbed to get close to him. Joe settled in at a VIP table on the dance floor but went into the DJ booth with the crowd cheering him on. DJ Vice also introduced the party people to Taboo from The Black Eye Peas, who promptly jumped on top of the booth to entertain the partygoers with several BEP hits as they sang and danced.

Reality TV star and fashion designer Whitney Port dined at Tao with her sister and friends before partying at a VIP table in the club. She also received a shout-out from DJ Vice as she danced on the catwalk. Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper of NBC’s The Biggest Loser made stops at Tao, Marquee in the Cosmopolitan and Lavo in the Palazzo.
