TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The big International Indian Film Academy Awards show is not until Saturday night, but IIFA and the Bollywood stars have already put on some spectacular shows.

Wednesday night, IIFA Stomp rocked Curtis Hixon Park downtown. More than 8,000 people jammed to traditional Bollywood music and the beats of Chamberlain High's own Ravi Jakhotia, better known as DJ Ravi Drums.

Thursday night, all eyes were on the IIFA Rocks Fashion Show. The event showed off beautiful traditional Indian clothing by famous Indian designers Manish Malhotra and Vikram Phadnis.

Actors Anil Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha rocked the catwalk. Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Visit Tampa Bay CEO Santiago Corrada were among the local celebrities to walk the runway for a portion of the show called Tampa Rocks. Miss America Nina Davaluri also modeled traditional Indian garb, while DJ Ravi Drums performed an intricate set filled with dancers in spacesuits.

The show finale was a performance by renowned singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
