While the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers are working hard ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl, Hollywood sports fans are descending on New Orleans to play hard in their honor.
omg! is posted in the Big Easy to bring you party scoop, predictions for the big game (we're rooting for Beyonce), and more. Here's a look at where the stars plan to celebrate this weekend ...
Audi Forum New Orleans: The luxury automaker will transform the Ogden Museum of Southern Art into a cocktail and performance space, welcoming singer Santigold. Expected guests include Will Ferrell, “Man of Steel” Henry Cavill, Ashley Greene, Anna Faris and, for sporty measure, anchor Erin Andrews.
Bud Light Hotel’s Rolling Stone kick-off: The beer-maker will stage an epic concert with the music magazine at a converted space that will see performances by Pitbull and Flo Rida, with an opening DJ set from Samantha Ronson.
The guest list includes Laurence Fishburn, Olivia Munn, “Hunger Games” cutie Josh Hutcherson, Sofia Vergara, Nick Kroll, Connie Britton, Guy Fieri and Mechad Brooks. Athletes expected include Andre Reed, Ron Woodson, Shannon Sharpe, Terrell Owens, and Matt Hasselbeck.

Andy Roddick, John Cryer, Alyssa Milano, Jerry Bruckheimer, “Rogue” star Josh Sasse, and Katherine Webb will turn up in support of The Giving Back Fund, a sports entertainment philanthropic effort.
Channing Tatum takes it to the people: In lieu of velvet ropes and tinted SUVs, Tatum is taking his party to the public. The actor owns a stake in the bar Sinners & Saints and is selling tickets to hang out with him and 50 of his closest friends. Get more details here.
GQ: The men's magazine's publisher Chris Mitchell will command the stars of Super Bowl to forgo their athletic gear in favor of tailored suits and cocktail dresses at the exclusive, private estate-set affair.

On the edge of the Mississippi River, venue Mardi Gras World will be transformed into the DTV SuperFan Stadium, where Timberlake will perform his first piece of new music in years, “Suit and Tie.”
The event has commanded RSVPs from Zoe Saldana, Alicia Keys, Owen Wilson, Stacey Keibler (sadly, George Clooney is filming in Berlin), Matt Bomer, Nick Cannon, and Nina Dobrev.
Audi Forum New Orleans: Once again the Ogden Museum will play host to this late-night fete, where Sunday's half time performer Beyonce's younger sister Solange and Diplo take the turntables.
