It seems Sin City is the place to be this New Year's Eve.

But that's only a taste of all the stars toasting the arrival of 2012. Other celebrity New Year's Eve Events include ...

You might be excused for doing a double take when seeing that Adele does not lead the nominations for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, announced Wednesday night.
How the heck could that be after the phenomenal year that she's had with 21 – easily the biggest-selling album of 2011 as well as one of the most critically acclaimed?
Well, truth is, Adele is nominated in pretty much every single category she was eligible for. (Next time do a song with Jay-Z and you can be nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration!)
That leaves her with six nominations, including album, record and song of the year (the latter two for "Rolling in the Deep"). But that's four less than Beyoncé Knowles scored two years ago.

It's the perfect pick-me-up as she recovers from throat surgery.
Adele, the Brit with the powerhouse voice, earned six Grammy Award nominations Wednesday night, including nods in all three of the award show's major categories: album of the year; record of the year; and song of the year.
Kanye West, however, snagged the most recognition, leading with seven nominations, many for his collaboration with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne.
This year, like last, the Grammys spread the wealth across genres, with rockers Foo Fighters and R&B crooner Bruno Mars each picking up six nominations. Not far behind: rapper Lil Wayne and electronic dance jam pioneer Skrillex, who both pulled in five nominations, while indie rocker Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, Mumford & Sons and Rihanna each earned four nominations.

The newlywed life is the good life for Carrie Underwood, who was told there would be rough patches.
"Everyone says the first month is the hardest, or the fourth month or the eighth month," the 28-year-old, who wed NHL player Mike Fisher last year, told PEOPLE. "We're just enjoying it."
The country songstress's career has been "go, go, go," she said, adding: "You never really get to stop and smell the roses and really enjoy just being a person."

Yes, the biggest jaw-dropper of the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday happened on the black carpet before the show even began: Beyoncé's baby bump reveal. But that was hardly the only surprise of the famously unpredictable show.
Among the night's big winners: Katy Perry, who scored three Moon Men – her first-ever – including Video of the Year for "Firework;" British soul singer Adele, who won three trophies for her mega-hit "Rolling in the Deep" (and received a standing ovation for her stunning live performance of "Someone Like You"); and Justin Bieber for Best Male Video ("U Smile").
A rundown of the night's other buzz-worthy moments:

The Grammys are Sunday night, and they promise plenty of star power, unexpected duets and actual awards. As for who will win big, well, you'll just have to tune in. In the meantime, here are a few things we expect will keep the telecast rocking:
1. It's Eminem's Night
It's been a big year for Eminem, who's nominated for a whopping 10 awards, including top honors Album of the Year and Record of the Year. Will Sunday solidify his amazing comeback? The rapper has been nominated in the past but has been seen as a controversial choice. Will the odds be in his favor this year? In a recent poll, 38% of PEOPLE.com readers said they wanted to see him sweep and take home all 10 awards.
2. What Will Gaga Do?
With Lady Gaga, you never know what to expect. We hear that the artist, who garnered six nods, will be performing her new song "Born This Way." How will she top last year's rollicking performance with Elton John? Something tells us she'll find a way to please her "little monsters."

Grammy nominee Bruno Mars is ready to put his cocaine-related arrest behind him.
The "Just The Way You Are" singer appeared before a Las Vegas judge on Friday, waiving his preliminary hearing. He is due back in court on Feb. 14, where he is expected to plead guilty to a felony cocaine charge, part of a plea bargain that will keep him from serving jail time in Las Vegas.
As part of the deal the singer-songwriter will pay a $2,000 fine and complete drug counseling and 200 hours of community service.

With seven Grammy nominations to his name, Bruno Mars isn't hung up on numbers – or trophies.
"It's been a hell of a year for all of us, and the fact that we did record these songs not too far from here in this little shabby studio, and here we are with Grammy nominations, is a little surreal," the "Just the Way You Are" singer, 25, tells PEOPLE. "We're just thankful."
His nominations include Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, as well as nods for songwriting. But there's someone else the singer-producer, is rooting for at the Feb. 13 ceremony: Cee-Lo Green.
