CeeLo Green -- singer, producer, “The Voice” mentor and soon-to-be Planet Hollywood headliner with his Liberace-inspired show “Loberace” -- rang out 2012 hosting and performing at Chateau Nightclub in the Paris on Sunday, Dec. 30.
Green arrived at the hotspot in a red leather jacket with matching red leather pants covered in silver spikes and studs. He told media that he was looking forward to 2013, saying his resolution is “to stay healthy and happy, to continue grinding and making the most of all the media opportunities that present themselves -- positive energy.”
Thousands of fans cheered as he took the mic in the DJ booth: “Las Vegas, are you ready to go into the New Year?” He performed several songs, including his hit “Forget You” and a cover of The Pussycat Dolls’ “Don’t Cha.” Before heading to a VIP booth where he was later joined by Bigg Gipp of Goodie Mob, Green wished guests a Happy New Year and said, “Drink responsibly, and much love, y’all.”

Paris Las Vegas The Paris Las Vegas transports visitors to the City of Light. Paris Las Vegas captures all the details of Paris, right down to the cobblestone sidewalks and half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Wrought iron street lamps line the 85,000 square foot casino with the legs of the Eiffel Tower sit in the middle of 1,700 slots and 90 table games.
Guests can dine at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, but beware, it's by reservation only. Diners can watch the world pass by at Mon Ami Gabi, a fine French restaurant where the most popular tables are the ones outside facing The Strip. Dining isn't just limited to the French, Asian restaurant Ah Sin is host to many dishes from the Pacific Rim. If you've just hit the jackpot on the casino floor, try the $777 Kobe beef and Maine lobster at Le Burger Brasserie.
Famous pastry chef Gaston Lenôtre opened a branch of his renowned pastry shop on the cobblestone-lined Le Boulevard, a street filled with intimate shops and restaurants, all underneath a blue cloud-filled ceiling. Strolling along Le Boulevard don't be surprised to see an extremely lifelike bronze statue move, that's because it's a real person
The City of Light doesn't go dark after dark. Anthony Cools - The Uncensored Hypnotist checks inhibitions at the door and pushes the limits of the audiences mind and body. Sitting right above the restaurant is nightclub Risqué, Paris' ultra lounge that is as fun as it is fantastic.
