February 9, 2006

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline left Baby Sean Preston at home for a night of Grammy partying. How did they celebrate? "Extra's" AJ Calloway was on hand with your VIP pass and an inside look!

The Grammy-goers first stop of the night was Mariah Carey's shindig, where pop princess Britney made a surprise entrance, and then revealed her favorite Grammy moments.

"Madonna. She was hot," Spears said. "She was awesome. And Kelly Clarkson!" Talk show titan Tyra Banks couldn't stop gushing about Mariah's big year. "I love her album. I mean, hello! It was crazy-- front to back."

And Jamie Foxx relived his big moment onstage with Kanye West by performing their act outside.

After a stop to emancipate their energy with Mariah, the crowd rolled over to the party of Mr. Kanye West. Inside, Kanye revealed he got some career advice from U2's Bono. "I just appreciate him for taking me under his wing," the Grammy winner said.

Meanwhile, Kanye's protege, John Legend, partied like a champ. "I just won some Grammys. I'm very happy right now!" Legend said.

"Desperate" diva Teri Hatcher was busy making the party rounds, Pam Anderson walked the red carpet with David LaChapelle, and Hugh Hefner came out to play with his playmates.

Over at the Warner Music Party, Michael Buble shared his run in with big winner Kelly Clarkson. "She was sitting right beside me, and I kind of looked over and said, 'Kelly, you rock,'" Buble? revealed. "And she just kinda looked at me and went, 'Who the hell is that?'"

Clarkson beamed as she enjoyed her night in the spotlight. She even got big congrats from Maroon 5's Adam Levine and "Idol" judge Randy Jackson. "I was just so proud for her," Jackson said. "She's just on cloud 29."

So for Kelly, Kanye, John Legend and Mariah, it truly was a golden night to celebrate!
