Stars from the sports and entertainment world mingled Friday night at ESPN's lavish pre-Super Bowl party, which featured an energetic performance from pop newcomer Charli XCX. Actors, television sports analysts and sports stars looked on as the "Boom Clap" singer belted out several of her hits, dancing and bounding around the stage. Among the notable guests of the party were "Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul, NFL quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick and a host of retired sports figures including former basketball player Rick Fox and football stars Jerome Bettis and Marcellus Wiley. At one point, actor Mekhi Phifer from NBC's "ER" noticed Paul, and the pair exchanged hugs and spent several minutes talking and laughing with each other. In between live music performances by J. Cole and Charli XCX, Roots drummer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson served as one of the party's DJs. He arrived and was photographed with comedian Tom Arnold, but zipped past several interviewers as he dragged a red suitcase of equipment. "I gotta DJ, I'm sorry," he told the reporters.
