British pop sensation Olly Murs made his Las Vegas debut hosting and performing at Pure in Caesars Palace on Saturday night. Arriving to the Angel Management Group hotspot about 1 a.m. (this morning!), the U.K. star, 28, was led to a private room, where he warmed up with backup vocalists Josh Wilkinson and Darren Heelis.
Nearing 2 a.m., the trio made their way to the main stage and began their mini-set with their hit “Heart Skips A Beat.” Murs, who showed off his dance moves throughout the night, dedicated “Hey You, Beautiful” to the ladies in the nightclub and closed with the chart-topper “Troublemaker.”
Thanking his fans, Murs, who was the runner-up in Season 6 of Britain’s “The X Factor,” returned to his VIP booth, where he joined his entourage of 10 and enjoyed the rest of the night mingling with and posing for photographs with fans and dancing. Thanks to Brenton Ho of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery.

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.
