The stars sure shine bright at The Hollywood Bowl.

After performing with Christina Aguilera at The Voice finale Tuesday night, Pitbull turned the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles into the “PitBowl”, taking over the venue and throwing a real party filled with A-List guests.

Pitbull’s 90-minute set after Ke$ha took the stage was full of surprises. The line up included appearances from Chris Brown, Enrique Iglesias, Marc Anthony and  the one and only J. Lo.

“I told you it was going to be a special night!” Pitbull said when Marc Anthony took stage to sing “Rain on Me.”

Chris Brown and Pitbull performed their hit “International Love,” but it was J. Lo who really turned things up when she came out and performed her new single, “Live It Up” alongside the Cuban rapper.

At the end of the night Pitbull gave a shout-out to all of his guests, but gave a special thank you to J. Lo, calling her the “most beautiful woman in the world.”

How sweet!

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
