He has developed an incredible following over his career and compiled more than 10 million Facebook fans and nearly 300 million hits on YouTube.

Last night’s crowd did not disappoint with everyone from comedian Drew Carey to Dancing with the Stars Pro Derek Hough to UFC Ring Girl Brittney Palmer joining in the fun.

Not to be outdone, socialite Paris Hilton headed to the stage, jumping in the booth with Tiësto to give a shout out to XS as her favorite club in the country before praising the DJ and hyping the crowd. Hilton, rumored to be dating XS Resident DJ Afrojack, has become an uber-fan of electronic dance music and is said to be collaborating on her own album with her beau as well as pop sensation LMFAO.

Tiësto has gone on record saying this is the “best club in the world” and if he were to build a club, it would look exactly like XS. Playing several dates throughout the remainder of the year, the superstar and mega-club will be a perfect match for special events in 2012 and beyond, including his next date during Spring Break season on Saturday, March 31.
