Part of the fun of a trip to Vegas is seeing celebrities in action, whether it's on stage, in the club, or at the blackjack table. No doubt, some sightings are more graceful than others.
While many interactions are unofficial and the result of being at the right place at the right time, you can also guarantee a meet-and-greet with Vegas performers should you feel inclined to pony up a little extra dough. Various acts from the likes of Boyz II Men to David Copperfield offer packages that allow fans the chance to shake hands. Here's seven Vegas acts that don't mind seeing fans up close and personal as long as you don't mind parting with a bit more cash:

He didn't make our list of hunkiest headliners (despite an unsubtle lobbying attempt by yours truly), but Taylor Hicks still has reason to brag. He's being
rescued promoted from Bally's to Paris Las Vegas.

We know. She's been in town for all of a month. But, the curv-licious Coco is the celeb we've most enjoyed stalking in 2012. And, no, it's not just dat ass. Or, those DDs. Although, we're not complaining.
No, we love Coco as much as Ice does because she keeps it real. Or, at least realer than most reality divas. And, with the exception of two of her breast, err, best points. But, we digress. She loves herself and isn't afraid to show it. Or, rather show it off. And, man, does she flaunt it. Now, almost nightly on the Vegas stage in Peepshow.
Is Coco the most amazing performer on The Strip? Certainly not. But, she's not expecting to be. Nor, are we expecting it of her. We're just in search of a good time and she wants to give us one. And, if you're clued in to that, you'll heart her as well. In just over 30 days, she's brought us a new look at an old show, a new Vegas mistake to be scandalized about, has already hit up the Goretorium, and is set to ring in New Year's Eve with Ice at LAX. Looks like she's settling in just fine.

We're pleased to welcome VegasChatter's newest regular contributor, Vegas Aleza, to our family. With a portfolio of work that has sent her as far away as Israel and an engaging style that has led to the publication of her reports in such outlets as the Los Angeles Times, we're honored to have her with us. For her first assignment, we knew we had to pull out the stops so we sent her to look deep into the dreamy, err, soulful eyes of an American Idol to tell us whether a trip to see this limited run is worth the $29.99.
During Season 5 of American Idol (a.k.a., the season we actually watched) we strongly favored Taylor Hicks for the win. The reasons were twofold: One, his soulful crooning and natural
hair color talent truly moved us. Two, it was a passive aggressive way to deal with the mega crush this writer's husband had on Katharine McPhee.
It’s been more than six years since America voted and Hicks took the Idol title. We forgot just how much we enjoyed his voice and awkward charm until catching his show last weekend in the intimate Indigo Lounge at Bally’s. Soul Patrolers take note: August is the last month to catch this limited engagement (unless his contract is extended).

Hmmm...well...this is happening. The man that Simon Cowell thought looked too old to be an American Idol is coming to town.
Yup, we're talking about season 5 winner Taylor Hicks who will start an eight-week residency at Bally's on June 26. As it turns out, Vegas is kind of a bittersweet spot for Hicks. He was in New Orleans the night before Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. The airline gave him a voucher for his cancelled flight which he later used to travel to Vegas and audition for American Idol.
