Usher just couldn’t keep his cool during his grand finale in the dazzling city of Las Vegas. At the climax of his mind-blowing 100th performance in the My Way Las Vegas residency, the 45-year-old hitmaker turned into a full-blown emotional rollercoaster on stage.
In a fan clip from the epic Saturday showdown on December 2, Usher, like the drama queen he is, immersed himself in the soulful strains of “Without You.” Picture this: Usher dramatically dropping to his knees, cradling his face in his hands as if he just discovered the last piece of pizza in a starving world. Meanwhile, his backup dancers formed a human support group, probably chanting, “You got this, Usher!”
After a brief dramatic pause that Shakespeare would have been proud of, Usher sprung back to his feet, pulling a classic move – the swift back turn. It’s like he was saying, “Hold up, world, I need a moment to collect myself. Cue the emotional music and supportive shoulder pats from my backup crew.”
The eight-time Grammy winner didn’t let the emotional turbulence stop him from finishing the song. With the resilience of a determined hero in a cheesy rom-com, Usher belted out the last lyrics and, in true showman style, rallied the audience to join the party.
As the musical rollercoaster reached its final crescendo, Usher delivered the pièce de résistance: “God bless you, I love you!” Classic Usher move, right? Like, forget about your problems, here’s some divine love from Usher himself.
The next day, in a move that can only be described as “Twitter Time Travel,” Usher reposted a vintage gem – an interview with Trevor Nelson from the ancient year of 2004. In this blast from the past, Usher confidently declared that visiting Las Vegas would be “the most phenomenal thing you’ve ever seen in your life.” Oh, the foreshadowing!
And as he shared the clip on Sunday, December 3, Usher added his own mic-drop commentary: “I saw it then…look at me now.” Well, Usher, we did look, and we’re still trying to recover from the emotional rollercoaster that was your Las Vegas finale. Bless your heart and your dance moves!
