While the northeast braved a midwinter blizzard, the West Coast was feeling the heat – and we're not just talking about the comparatively warmer weather.

John Mayer and Katy Perry took their date night up a notch at Clive Davis and The Recording Academy's Annual Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where they were spotted holding hands while Patti Smith performed.

Alert Elizabeth Gilbert!

Taking a page from the Eat, Pray, Love author's playbook, Tyra Banks took a trip to Asia and found a new love.

"It's a total long-distance romance," a source reveals to PEOPLE of Banks's new Balinese love interest. "But it's a big deal."

Banks, who split with longtime boyfriend John Utendahl last fall, had gone to China shortly before the holidays to tape the latest season of America's Next Top Model.

She met her new man while traveling and after flying back to New York, she turned right around and flew back to Bali to spend the holidays with him, the source says.

A rep for Banks would not comment on her new romance.

Eventually, D'Amato was named the winner, but the buzz around the Internet continued to focus on the nature of Preston's dismissal.
