Before hitting the red carpet to jump start the opening celebration, Diddy spent the evening shooting a music video with indie rock band Chester French for their song Ciroc Star.  Afterwards, he fueled up by enjoyed dinner in his luxurious penthouse suite before heading downstairs to host Vanity’s grand opening celebration.  Shortly after Diddy’s arrival, DJ Clinton Sparks jumped on the mic to welcome the music mogul as well as the crowd of partygoers.

Sparks then began playing one of Diddy’s songs, which caused rapper Nelly, Diddy and Chester French to all stand up and dance, causing the crowd to roar with energy and excitement.   As the crowd danced in the glow of Vanity’s spectacular 20,000 LED light cyclone chandelier, Diddy stood up on the DJ booth and shouted to the crowd  “hey west coast, this is the hottest spot in Vegas,” before performing Ciroc Star.
