Dressed in all black with a Russian Ushanka hat, the Atlanta singer took the blacked-out stage at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live and served up an acapella medley of his catalog of hits, starting off with “Nice & Slow” from 1998’s My Way.
Dancing like a whirling dervish, the Confessions crooner ordered everyone in the house to “put yo hands up” after a quick stop on “Yeah!”
Usher then took off his hat before diving into a slowed down version of “You Remind Me” and “U Don’t Have To Call.” After “Caught Up,” he got into a spinning cage to bang on the drums for a few seconds.
Down to his black jeans and tee and dangling Cuban link gold chain, Usher closed his set with a flurry of impressive dance moves while performing his current hit, “Good Kisser.”
