The Cinco de Mayo show gave Justin a chance to perform music from his latest album, The 20/20 Experience, which he recently announced will be followed up by The 20/20 Experience Part 2 in September. He sang plenty of his old songs too, from "Like I Love You" to "Cry Me a River" and "Senorita." Justin joked with the crowd, with quips like, "You're at an eight and a half. If you be honest with me, I'll be honest with you." He also asked, "Is anybody drunk yet?" After hearing some cheers, he added, "Good for you!" His frequent collaborator Timbaland emerged toward the end for a rendition of "SexyBack." It seems Justin had as great a time as the fans. He tweeted last night, "Thank you NYC and Roseland Ballroom!

Earlier this week, the UK press was full of reports that Keira and James are getting married this weekend in the South of France.

We have a report right from the black carpet of last night's NYC premiere of The Great Gatsby, and Carey Mulligan, Daisy Buchanan herself, told us what it was like wearing over-the-top costumes on set with costars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. In this headlines roundup, we're also looking at big news of the day, including Kim Kardashian's night with Beyoncé Knowles and the surprising closing of the Spice Girls musical.
The Spice Girls musical playing in London's West End is called Viva Forever!, but its run will last only six months. It was confirmed today that Viva Forever! will close early in June, despite the best promotional efforts of Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham. Due to poor ticket sales and worse reviews, backers of the production say they could not make the financials work. In a statement the Girls expressed their own thoughts, saying, "Although Viva Forever won't continue in the West End, we are thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did."
Kate Moss was the life of the party in London last night! Along with her husband, Jamie Hince, mom Linda Moss, and friends like Stella McCartney and Rhys Ifans, Kate put on her finest '80s gear to mark the 50th birthday of their pal Fran Cutler at the Groucho Club. Fran, a PR executive, has been friends with Kate for years, and their many mutual friends helped pull off the surprise bash, which included many unique moments, from a This-Is-Your-Life-style presentation from Rhys and a set from Rita Ora.
Rita was there with her BFF Cara Delevingne. 20-year-old Cara and 22-year-old Rita's social circles have overlapped with Kate's now that Rita is romantically linked to Kate's good friend Dave Gardner, who's also close with David Beckham. Rita and Cara both dressed up for the period theme, though Kate topped them all by pulling out a second ensemble for the afterparty at The Box.
