Last Sunday Usher wowed audiences when he “dropped in” for a surprise Super Bowl halftime performance alongside The Black Eyed Peas, and his recent “OMG Tour” performances have received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Daily Variety stated that “he is a consummate professional, showing full mastery of both voice and body.” Detroit News described the singer as “a born entertainer whose effortless moves on the stage never ceased to amaze,” while the Chicago Tribune raved that “turning the arena into his own house of Usher, the singer celebrated his R&B dominance of the last 15 years.” Newark’s The Star-Ledger commented that “Usher, who seems to have spent most of his life at the top of the Billboard charts, danced straight through an explosive headline show,” and the Washington Post reported that “he glided across the stage gracefully for nearly two hours of choreographed dance routines. He elicited constant shrieks and squeals from fans who packed every seat in the arena.”
