The performers/guest’s tonight included (in no particular order) BBMak, Soluna, Mario, Howie D. of the Backstreet Boys, Jo-Jo from KIIS FM of course, Melissa, former member of Dream stopped by and chatted about what she’s up to & about her solo and acting debut, Wade Robson did a few dance moves, and was a total suprise to everyone who was there.
