Las Vegas, NV/A Entertainment News - Just as they have for years and years now the Exotic Dancing community has converged in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino for the Exotic Dancer Magazine Club Expo and Awards.

Last night the big event that had people talking was the semi-finals night of the Miss Exotic United States pageant which was held at the Las Vegas Little Darlings Gentlemen's club. There were 16 beautiful state finalists that won the right to come to Vegas from their home states and compete for the finals and title of Miss Exotic United States.

The shows began around 10pm the super talented Jade Simone Sinclair was the hostess on stage, Jade is also known for being an award winning Feature Dancer, her several television shows and as the Naked Comic, where she does a very funny comedy set in the nude.

Miss Daisy Duxe and myself were the hosts for the taping of the television version of this show, where we did a lot of dressing room interviews with the beautiful ladies and a play by play commentary of each of the contestants shows on the stage. The event was being taped for a cable TV show to be named at a later date.

The turnout was better than expected and the Little Darlings club was filled with club owners from around the country, several dance agents, almost every press photographer from the convention and a few celebrities thrown in for good measure.

It was a great night for big elaborate feature shows and all of the girls brought their best to the stage, we find out about the finals and crowning the winner Wednesday night at the Las Vegas Rick's Cabaret.

Here are a few photos from the opening night of the show and our time at the Little Darlings Club from our man Ricky Rich. We hope you enjoy them
