Celeb cameos at parties, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj

MTV; Instagram

We're not going to lie: we are super-jealous of these kids' birthday parties.

This past weekend Drake dropped by to make a special visit at a NYC Bat Mitzvah, and party-goers tweeted pics and videos from the amazing night.

The rapper performed songs like "My Way" and "Summer Sixteen."

While some tweens are just hoping to get the ice cream cake flavor they want on their birthday, others are getting serenaded by the "Hotline Bling" rapper.

Talk about a memorable way to ring in 13!

Surprisingly, amazing star appearances at parties like this aren't as rare as you think.

Sometimes it's a paid gig, and other times it's a favor or a family connection.

The celeb could just be a party guest, too.

This lucky young lady's not the only person to have a famous face play her party.

The MTV series My Super Sweet 16 focused on lavish birthday parties and that didn't just mean more decorative streamers and a better offering of snacks.

Several episodes showed kids getting huge stars to grace their birthday parties with their presence.

Remember that time Rihanna showed up with birthday boy Darnell as his celeb date?

That's a pretty big plus one for a high school student.

The show also had appearances from celebs like Pitbull, Ciara, and Kanye West.

One birthday girl even enlisted Nick Cannon's help to give out VIP invites to her bash.

That's right, some stars are being utilized just to make the invites look cool.

Because, you know, you gotta create that birthday buzz.

When a 12-year-old boy named Daniel wanted to get the hype up for his celebration, he dropped a rap videoshowing off his mad flow.

Plus, it featured some brief star appearances from Shaq and Ne-Yo to help get the word out.

Other kids get celeb surprises.

For birthday boy Leo, it was a video that seemed like it would be a montage of family photos, but in reality was six minutes of well wishes from celebs.

Paul Rudd, Melissa McCarthy, Adam Sandler, and Tina Fey are among the famous faces who offer advice to the birthday boy on the day of his big celebration.

And a celeb cameo doesn't mean a star's swooping through without enjoying the party.

When Nicki Minaj wished Matt "mazel tov!" at his Bar Mitzvah, she performed at the party and took time to hang out with all of this guests.
