Grammy Award winner Pharrell Williams, in town for the MAGIC fashion convention with Liberty, took over the main stage at Pure in Caesars Palace early this morning for a performance and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his clothing company, Billionaire Boys Club.
It was just after 1 a.m. when he hit the red carpet to pose for photographers. Pharrell invited hip-hop recording artist and record producer Swizz Beatz to the celebration, and the duo partied at a VIP table on the main stage with dozens of guests.
Just after 1:30 a.m., Pharrell welcomed partygoers before launching into his set that included “Happy” (from “Despicable Me 2”), “Get Like Me," “Frontin,’” “Blurred Lines” and more. Swizz Beatz and Pharrell took turns showing off their dance moves, taking cameras from fans to capture up-close videos and getting guests to dance and sing along.
The duo asked fans if they wanted the show to continue, and, after dividing the room into three sections to get clubgoers to compete, they continued for what ended up being a two-hour performance. Confetti flew through the air as Pharrell was presented with a three-tiered cake in honor of his celebration.

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
