Celebs of varying stature made their way to the Sporting Club in Monte Carlo, Monaco yesterday to attend the 2010 World Music Awards. The awards show was co-hosted by Heroes star Hayden Panettiere and Lost star Michelle Rodriguez for no discernible reason clear to me, other than the fact that they were available. While I have no idea what either one of these actresses have to do with the celebration of World Music, I’m sure they did a decent job hosting. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals and some deets about the event itself:
2010 World Music Awards was kicked off on Tuesday, May 18 at the Sporting Club in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Held to honor those in music, the event welcomed not only musicians but also actors, athletes and models. Hayden Panettiere, who served as co-host at the event with Michelle Rodriguez, wowed people with her simple look. The “Heroes” beauty covered herself in an Emilio Pucci short dress matched with open-toed shoes while her hair was pinned up. Jennifer Lopez, who was honored with an achievement award for her contribution to music, came with the companion of her husband Marc Anthony. The singer/actress bared her cleavage and back in a full-length Roberto Cavalli animal print gown. Giving a different color on the red carpet were the members of Scorpions who graced the red carpet with their rocker style. Meanwhile, Italian tenor singer Andrea Bocelli chose a formal white-and-black outfit, which was in contrast with Pharrell Williams’ casual style in a jacket and a baseball cap. Also seen among the attendees were Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton who were joined by other family members, including brother Barron as well as parents Kathy and Rick. Heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko and model Karolina Kurkova additionally showed up at the event.
Jennifer Lopez, will.i.am and Pharell were among the artists who performed last night as well:
I have to say, the World Music Awards annually confuses and confounds me. I’m not exactly sure what the parameters are for winning a World Music Award but each year the show manages to pull together the strangest groupings of celebs. I suppose congratulations are in order for the winners … I mean, I guess.
