Revved up by three hours of standing-ovation performances, 2011 Billboard Music Awards attendees flocked to club/restaurant Tao inside the Venetian Hotel for more celebrating.

Calling his first awards host gig "a great career highlight," actor Ken Jeong joined fellow show presenters and performers such as Joe Jonas, "Glee" star Matthew Morrison, actor Tim Allen and members of OneRepublic in rubbing elbows with industry executives and other party-goers inside the cavernous Asian-themed venue.

Millennium Award honoree Beyoncé was the talk of the evening, with Jonas summing up consensus about her jaw-dropping performance with one word: "great."

Also on hand was fashion designer Max Azria, who pegged the awards show as "exceptional."

Meanwhile, Billboard Editorial Director Bill Werde was busy taking pictures with guests while holding new artist and digital artist of the year winner Justin Bieber's seventh statuette for fan favorite honors. Vows Werde, "I'm going to take pictures with the award and different people, then keep tweeting those photos until Justin comes by to pick up the award."
