GRAND SPECTACLE

Estelle lit it up at Grand Central in downtown Miami Wednesday night at an exclusive, intimate concert put on by Pandora. The British Grammy winner took a page from the Kim Kardashian playlist and donned a low-cut jacket with a black bra peeping through. But her mellifluous voice more than made up for her style choices.

POWER TRIBUTE

A certain superstar wasn’t forgotten on the five-year anniversary of his death. Jay Z and Beyoncé made sure to pay their respects to the King of Pop at their “On The Run” tour kickoff at Sun Life Stadium Wednesday night. “Shout out to Michael Jackson,” Jay told the audience a few times throughout the show, while his wife managed to work the Jackson 5’s classic ABC into Love on Top.

And speaking of risque outfits, Queen B got social media all achatter with a certain bodysuit with cut-outs in the derriere region. But, hey, at least she obviously did a lot of squats before the tour started. Looking good, lady!

Rising the ranks

Ricky Ubeda is officially in the Top 20 of Fox’s competition So You Think You Can Dance. Even if he doesn’t win the whole Season 11 shebang, being on the reality hit is a dream come true for the incredibly lithe contemporary dancer, who just graduated from Coral Reef High School. “I’ve been watching this show since I was a wee little guy,” Ubeda says on his audition tape. “Now it’s time to step up.”

See Ricky live at 8 p.m. Wednesday on Fox or at a free watch party over at Stars Dance Studio Miami, where he practices. In attendance will be fellow dancers Julian Mireles, Cristina Moya and Samantha Perez, who were since eliminated from the televised contest; as well as Victor Smalley, a choreographer who co-owns the studio. Smalley appeared in both season 6 of SYTYCD and Lifetime’s Dance Moms Miami with fellow co-owner Angel Armas. The party starts at 6:30 p.m.; 13984 SW Eighth St., Miami.

GO NORTH

Who says celebrities don’t make it out to Boca Raton? TV chef Ming Tsai dined at Boca Raton’s Farmer’s Table Tuesday. The host of Ming’s Quest on the Fine Living Network and Simply Ming on American Public Television reportedly supped on Korean chicken wings, edamame shrimp dumplings, roasted mushrooms and goat cheese flatbread and pan-seared sea scallops.
