Vegas had more stars come out New Year’s Eve than any other city in the world. BOB at LAX, John Legend at the Palms, Chris Brown at Pure and Vanessa Williams at the Riviera just to name a few. However, the golden ticket to have was to celebrate 2012 with Stevie Wonder at the Cosmopolitan.

One of the pricier parties on the strip, tickets started at $250, but true Stevie fans came out in full force. The Chelsea, Cosmopolitan’s indoor concert venue was packed to full capacity when Wonder hit the stage at 11 p.m. He rocked the crowd with hits such as “Master Blaster”, “Overjoyed,” and “My Eyes Don’t Cry” for over two-and-a-half hours, pausing to usher in 2012 with a celebratory countdown as the clock struck midnight.

The large flat screens that flanked the stage gave the party goers a bird’s eye view of the fireworks from both ends of the strip.

As an added surprise R&B singer Tyrese joined Wonder on stage and sang along to several songs, including “Superstition.”
