Ne-Yo and Diddy at AMAs after party

Katy Perry and Russell Brand at the Rolling Stone AMAs after party Everyone was a winner at the American Music Awards after-parties -- that is, of course, if they were invited.

Music heavyweights hit Hollywood venues Sunday to get down after the ceremony, with the most anticipated soiree the grand opening of the Rolling Stone restaurant and lounge at the Hollywood and Highland complex.

John Legend, Kid Rock, Ke$ha, Matthew Morrison and newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand joined publisher Jann Wenner to christen the brand's flagship event space.

Morrison was in good spirits, mingling with the likes of "American Idol" winner David Cook. Ke$ha held court in a private booth, rocking red war paint on her face and sipping Grey Goose with girlfriends.

"Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet seemed star-struck, wandering the event and gawking at the likes of Jon Bon Jovi.

A few blocks away at the Avalon Hollywood, R&B star Ne-Yo hosted a post-party with Vevo where he performed with a few friends -- like Diddy, Kelly Rowland and Jamie Foxx.

"I like the whole Black Pack thing you got going on tonight," Diddy said, complimenting Ne-Yo on curating his guest stars.
