Carrie Underwood

Former American Idol champ and country star Underwood is the grand opening act Friday at the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, which takes over the Boardwalk space previously inhabited by the Trump Taj Mahal. Pitbull (who headlines the Welcome America fest in Philly on July 4) follows on Saturday, and the lineup is very pop-country-heavy through the summer.

Michael Che

Saturday Night Live cast member and co-head writer Michael Che is best known as the co-anchor of the show's "Weekend Update" segment, but when he comes to Atlantic City this summer, don't expect Colin Jost by his side. With any luck, he'll bust out his Meek Mill impression for us.
