Diving into the Songbook
The R&B icon moved through the best of his discography, from "Caught Up" and "Confessions" to "Yeah!" and "OMG."
Alicia Keys appeared by the stage at a piano, glittering in a red corseted ensemble. She sang a soulful rendition of her own song "If I Ain’t Got You" before stepping on stage.
Up Close & Personal
The talented duo duetted Usher's song "My Boo" as they sweetly swayed together.
Part way through his medley performance, Usher stripped off his shirt to sing his 2001 hit "U Got It Bad."
He was joined on stage by H.E.R. who jammed on an electric guitar behind her signature sunglasses.
The singers recently collaborated on their song "Risk It All" from The Color Purple soundtrack.

After Usher crooned to his solo songs like "Burn," he invited more friends and former collaborators to hype up the crowd. Lil Jon bounced with the crowd to "Turn Down for What" until he and Usher moved on to "Yeah."
