In the true spirit of New Orleans, Jamie Foxx serenaded guests on Sunday night at the most anticipated Super Bowl celebration of the weekend. The VIP event took place in the home of photographer Paul Costello and style consultant and writer Sara Ruffin Costello in the city's historic Garden District, and featured a 45-minute set from Jamie Foxx. Foxx also enlisted Jennifer Hudson, fresh off of her amazing National Anthem performance at that evening's game, to surprise the crowd with a duet. Later, the famed New Orleans' Preservation Hall Jazz Band filled the home with classic jazz tunes.
Kellan Lutz, Kate Walsh, Olivia Munn, Flo Rida, Holly Robinson Pete and John Besh were among the evening's guests who enjoyed New Orleans-inspired cocktails from the S-Beam Bourbon bar. Finally, being that it was a celebration of the biggest sporting event of the year, it was very fitting that party-goers competed in tournament-style ping pong games. The competition heated, with scores being tracked on the leader board using Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 devices.
