Maybe the meal was good luck? Just a day before winning entertainer of the year
at the Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Taylor Swift
dined at the Bellagio's Yellowtail restaurant. Joined by her mother and a few of her band members, the singer sat at an outdoor table – overlooking the casino's famed fountain show – and dined on sushi.
Country stars Jason Aldean
and Luke Bryan
joined Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott
for her birthday bash at GOLD Boutique Nightclub and Lounge in Sin City on Friday. Scott's bandmates Charles Kelley
and Dave Haywood
stopped by to celebrate, too, and helped the birthday girl blow out the candles on her cake. She must've made a big wish: Sunday night, the trio nabbed album of the year and top vocal group honors at the ACM Awards.
Before joining hubby Keith Urban
on the ACM red carpet
, Nicole Kidman
grabbed some girlfriends and took in a performance of Viva ELVIS
by Cirque du Soleil at ARIA Resort & Casino. The ladies enjoyed the performance, and toasted with some champagne during the show.
Table for … 35? Members of the ACM-award winning Zac Brown Band
– plus dozens of pals! – feasted on a spread of steak, chicken and seafood Friday night in the private dining room at N9NE Steakhouse in Vegas. Joined by husband-wife country duo Joey
and Rory Lee Feek
, the group sipped wine and devoured s'mores for dessert.
After a meal
with beau Jason Trawick
, Britney Spears
treated her boys Sean
to a performance of The Lion King
at Vegas's Mandalay Bay. Afterward, the pop star took her cubs backstage to meet the show's stars, and posed for pictures with the cast. "Britney was very gracious, thanking each and every person she saw for a wonderful performance," a source tells PEOPLE. The trio soon left, the boys sporting Lion King
hats and clutching plush Simba toys.
