So, maybe it’s no surprise that performing during Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s star-studded wedding reception would be “fun,” but Pitbull tells ET just how fun it got.
“You know, Sofia knows how to have a good time,” Mr. Worldwide told us while promoting his New Year’s Eve special. “By the third song in -- I did about a 45-minute set -- she was on stage with all her beautiful bridesmaids and friends, and that's when the party started.”
The Modern Family actress and former True Blood actor were married at The Breakers Palm Beach resort in West Palm Beach, Florida in front of nearly 400 of their close family and friends. So, how did the newlyweds book the Grammy winner as their wedding singer?
“Sofia I've known now for six, seven years, but I've always been a big fan of hers,” Pitbull recalled. “You'll notice in interviews back in the day they would say, who is the woman you think is the most beautiful or someone you think is gorgeous? Sofia Vergara. To see what she has done with her career, from the root to the fruit, it's an honor and a blessing to be at her wedding and to be a part of such a special day with her.”
The rapper performed his hits, including “Give Me Everything (Tonight)” and "Fireball," for the lucky guests and says his set may have been a surprise for the groom, most of all.
“She definitely dances more than Joe, and Joe was looking on that stage going, ‘Oh boy,’” Pitbull said with a laugh. “And his family was going, ‘Oh boy, this is going to be a ride.’ It is, my friend. Get ready. But it will be fun.”
As for his next gig, Mr. 305 will be performing alongside some of today's hottest musicians and counting down to 2016 during his second annual Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution.
“This year, it's less segments and more about the music and the energy of the city in Miami,” he teased. “Just showing that energy to the rest of the country and the rest of the world. Especially in the country where half are going to be snowed in. I want them to feel that fire, that heat from Miami through the television.”
Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution airs on Dec. 31 at 11:00pm on Fox.
