Mariah Carey celebrated her Billboard Icon Award at TAO Las Vegas Wednesday night. Wearing a stunning sequin dress, the singer took over the restaurant’s private dining room, which was decked out in balloons spelling out ICON (Pictured: Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson – Photo credit: Global Media Group).
Joined by boyfriend Bryan Tanaka and friends, Carey was surprised with a sushi platter with rolls in the shape of her initials M.C. Jennifer Hudson, who presented the Billboard ICON award to Carey, was also dining at TAO and popped into the private dining room to toast her friend.
At Beauty & Essex, Madonna took over the Pearl Lounge for an after-hours celebration. She arrived fresh from the Billboard Awards and the debut performance of her new single “Medellin” with Maluma, who joined shortly thereafter. Together with their guests they dined in the candle-filled room and finished the night with cupcakes emblazoned with the letters M and X representing her new album Madame X.
