For the beautiful and talented Katy Perry to come on stage, who better to introduce her than Kate Hudson.  Lots of surprising stars come out throughout the night to show their support to I Heart Radio 2013.
The decibel in the stadium rose quickly as Katy Perry took the stage.  Even though the lights were dark, everyone was anticipating what the first song she will sing.
She sang a medley of past hits and one song from her current album.  Katy Perry played to the crowd and told everyone that just because she has an album coming out does not mean she will not sing everyone's favorite classics!
There is never a dull moment with Katy Perry.  She had the knee pads on for her to dance all over the stage.  We caught a nice photo as she got down on her knees as the guitarist played away.
Don't forget the other male dancers on the stage.  Some flirty singing while sitting on the male dancer's legs.
Even though we were in Vegas, she had to pay tribute to those in California with California Gurls! She played lots of her top songs but there are just too many to choose from and too short of an evening.
I am not sure if she was paying an homage to Miley Cyrus for all the torquing with the weird costumes, hair, and dancing or if Katy Perry was making fun of it.  To be honest, I had no idea what that was about until Ms. Lin Guide showed me the video of Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMAs.
Katy Perry did a great rendition of Firework that really showed off her chops.  That song impressed me as I liked it just as must or even more than the album.  It is a very difficult song but she put all her heart and emotion to rock it out.

The fun just keeps on continuing with an all star line-up.  For those who are country fans, next up was Keith Urban.
With a guitar in his hand, Keith Urban serenaded to the crowd.  I won't lie... I did not any of the songs but the crowd did love it.  O=)
After a short break, Muse took the stage coming all the way from the UK.  The crowd went wild again.  Muse consists of school friends Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard.
They entertained their crowd with hits like : Uprising, Starlight, and of course Madness.  I enjoyed how they put on the electric sunglasses for madness and did up close shots with the camera while singing the song.
The eerily beats of Muse echoed throughout the stadium getting the crowd riled up and singing with them.
There were lizard people playing music instruments as the background and dancing bobble head like stars dancing to their beats.  No one can say they are boring. lol  For their final song they set the stage ablaze with pyrotechnics.  Even in the cool room, you can feel each burst of heat.
It was really fun to see the stage when they showed all the photos uploaded by people to the social media.  The twitter boards were lit up on both sides of the stage encouraging everyone to share their thoughts and photos.  People at home could join in the fun as well!

What a way to start off a weekend.  Work from 9am to 3:30pm to catch a last minute flight to Vegas.  By hook or crook, I found my way to Vegas and squeezed my way into the concert hall.  Tons of people scrunched into one stadium to enjoy an all star line up.
Kick starting my last minute trip to Vegas for the I Heart Radio Concert was P. Diddy introducing Robin Thicke singing the summer hit, Blurred Lines.  Stage left, Robin Thicke descends from the crowd belting out the lines.  Crazed fans forming around him with their phones clicking away at the photos.
It was a great way to start the weekend and the I Heart Radio Concert series.  The performance rocked the house and got everyone of their feet jumping.
Next up was FUN with lead singer Nate Reuss showing off his chops.  He sounded exactly like what you hear on the radio.  The music was blaring and the fun never stopped. 
They sang their top hits : Carry On, We Are Young, and Some Nights.  I can still hear the sound of the beating drums.  FUN was superb live.  
The crisp clear sound of Nate Reuss' voice resonated throughout the concert hall.  
A great way to jump start the crowd for the major line up.  Plenty more pictures from my weekend in Vegas at both I Heart Radio Concerts and the I Heart Village Festival! The night has only just begun! Catch the concert on CW on Monday (9/30) and Tuesday (10/1)
