Ne-Yo and Compound Entertainment’s 6th annual Midnight Brunch got an extra shot of star power in the form of Will Smith this year. The 45-year-old actor, set to team with Ne-Yo on a new HBO project, was among the names inside Hollywood’s Lure nightclub for the annual pre-Grammy brunch Saturday (Jan. 25) night.

Sponsored by Malibu Red, other attendees included Paris Hilton, Adrienne Bailon, Akon, Mack Wilds, Salaam Remi, Bizzy CrookCammi B., Ash Angel and Alyxx Neon of LiV, Nassessa Williams, director Chris Robinson, and Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men. The night’s music playlist came courtesy of DJ Cassidy.

Over the last six years, Ne-Yo’s brunch has become one of the more popular parties during Grammy week, and it didn’t take long to reach capacity. Before the clock struck midnight the entry line was at a standstill, leaving a crowd of people waiting to work their way inside.

They may not have all made it in, but those who did enjoyed a casual environment, one that Ne-Yo believes keeps people coming back. “It’s pretty loose and laid back,”  he told Billboard.biz. “I feel like this is a place where if Will Smith wanted to get on the dance floor for a second, he could. Those are the kind of parties that I used to go to back in the day, so that’s the kind of party I want to throw.”
