Party Pics: Nicole Scherzinger shakes her booty and David Blaine mystifies at Bliss Ball 2013

Bliss Ball 2013

Simon Cowell protégés were everywhere at the Dilawri Foundation’s second annual Bliss Ball in support of SickKids Hospital. Katharine McPheeCarly Rose Sonenclar and X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger performed; X Factor host Mario Lopez emceed; and the event had the slick production values of one of Cowell’s high stakes talent shows. Guests pulling up to the Sunnybrook Estates were greeted by a gospel choir and, as they sat down to eat Mark McEwan’s food, David Blaine circulated to perform table-side tricks. After dinner, Lopez (who seemingly hasn’t aged since his days as A.C. Slater) transitioned to the live auction, which started off slow but became more big-hearted—and open walleted—after a few more glasses of wine. The biggest surprise: guest speaker Chris Noth spontaneously offered up a weekend stay at his own pad in New York. Noth threw in a night on the town with him, Blaine, Lopez and and his Good Wife cast members, intoning in a baritone worthy of Mr. Big, “You don’t have to bring your husbands, ladies.”
