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.
