Sure, you love the clubs, the casinos, the over-the-top buffets. But we're giving you 13 more reasons to pack your bags and head to Vegas ... and yes, one of them is JLo. Sin City packs in the star power and GAYOT has rounded up the best show-stopping acts on the Strip. Read the full list for more top picks.

Arguably the best show on the Strip, The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage was revamped in February of last year with new costumes, acts, special effects, choreography and music. The result is an even better kaleidoscopic experience teeming with gravity-defying Cirque du Soleil aerialists, acrobats and dancers who bring the iconic band's music to life in ways you never imagined. As the song goes, all you need is LOVE.

Jennifer Lopez is a certified superstar and she's definitely giving "All I Have" for her first headlining residency at the AXIS Theater inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. With a troupe of 16 backup dancers and a five-piece band, JLo shakes, shimmies and sings her way through hits like "On the Floor," "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Get Right." You'll want to get on the floor – and you can thanks to the club-like atmosphere. Just remember, it'll cost you. Her love might not cost a thing, but her show sure does.

Named after the once-banned spirit that was known to cause hallucinations, Absinthe is an acro-cabaret variety show that is indeed a vision. A mix of sexy, funny and bawdy entertainment, this theater-in-the-round experience offers up-close views of the cast performing everything from eye-popping stunts to burlesque numbers. It's all staged inside a faux-tent near the entrance to Caesars Palace, which only adds to the (decidedly adult) carnival atmosphere.

They don't sing and they don't talk. So why is the Blue Man Group one of the top shows to hit Vegas? No doubt the visual of bald, blue performers is part of the appeal, but it's also this group’s unique use of percussion instruments, multimedia theatrics and even food to create funny (and thought-provoking) skits. These guys prove you don't need language to speak to people. When in Vegas, be sure to catch these eye-catching guys at the Luxor Hotel and Casino.
