Halloween, Las Vegas-style, had everything Friday, from Snoop Dogg’s latest persona, Britney Spears’ decidedly under-the-radar look and a flash mob that would make Michael Jackson proud:
■ Snoop Dogg hosted at Tao nightclub at The Venetian as his recently unveiled alter-ego “Todd,” a white guy with a shaggy blond wig.
■ Planet Hollywood headliner Britney Spears partied at Beacher’s Madhouse at the MGM Grand dressed as a nerd with black-rimmed glasses. She treated her cast to a night at the Madhouse after her sold-out show. Emcee Donny Davis, who also appears in Spears’ “Piece of Me” as a magical fairy, was hosting her while producer Jeff Beacher was away in Los Angeles, hanging out at the Roosevelt Hotel with Miley Cyrus, who was dressed up as her godmother, Dolly Parton, with a big wig and supersized boobs.
■ Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, with his girlfriend, former Miss USA Olivia Culpo, looking like they stepped out of Roaring ’20s for his hosting duties at 1 OAK nightclub at The Mirage. He wore a tux, black bow tie and black hat, while she wore a sexy red flapper-style dress complete with a black boa and headpiece ensemble.
■ A flash mob showed up at The Linq on Friday and surprised the crowd with a fully choreographed version of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in front of the former Imperial Palace that was renamed the Quad before the latest name change.
■ George Clooney’s ex, Stacy Keibler, made up in a Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) look.
■ Andy Bell of the British duo, Erasure, wore a skelton-like costume with white face and black eye sockets during their concert at The Pearl at the Palms.
■ Poker player and social media sensation Dan Bilzerian, who has 5.1 million followers on Instagram, judged his look-a-like contest that paid $10,000 to the winner. More than 50 competed.
