Usher Rocks the Staples Center with His Dance Moves and Surprise Guests!

Usher Rocks the Staples Center with His Dance Moves and Surprise Guests!

“WOW,” that’s all I could say during Usher‘s “UR Experience Tour” stop at Staples Center last night.

Before Usher hit the stage, DJ Cassidy kicked off the night and let me just say “white boy can dance.” His set included Michael Jackson remixes, a really cool Bruno Mars “Treasure (remix),” Disclosure set and a surprisingly good Marvin Gaye remix. The crowd was dancing and having a good time. His outfit was on point as well, he wore all white and a hat.

Hip hop sensation August Alsina hit the stage and the noise level went from 0 to 100. Alsina performed a couple of tracks off his critically acclaimed debut album, Testify, including “Make It Home,” “No Love” and “Kissin’ On My Tattoos.” At one point during his set, he turned to look at the crowd and I smiled and then he smiled. I like to believe that he smiled at me, so “thanks August!” <3 :D

The man of the night, Usher hit the stage at approximately 9:30 and delivered a 2-hour set of hits and brought along a couple of surprise guests. He kicked-of his set with throwback track “My Way,” then a medley of hits followed including “OMG,” “You Make Me Wanna…,” “Love In This Club,” “Nice & Slow,” “YEAH!,” “Climax,” “Burn,” “Confessions, Pt.2,”  “DJ Got Us Falling In Love,” etc. Yes, he took of his shirt a couple of times and everyone went crazy (myself included).

Usher spoke to the enthusiastic crowd and he promised surprise…oh, boy did he deliver. The first surprise guest was Kid Ink, they performed collab track “Body Language.” He then brought out Jeremih they performed DJ Khaled’s “Hold You Down” and then Jeremih performed his hit “Don’t Tell ‘Em.” Usher then brought August Alsina back out on stage and performed “I Luv This Sh**,” and then a guy with a white hoodie appeared on stage…it was non other than Chris Brown. The crowd went insane, the noise level went from 1,000 to 1,000,000 in 10 seconds. Usher and Chris even had a mini dance battle before they hugged and Chris left.

Usher finished his 28+ song setlist with David Guetta’s hit anthem “Without You.” Fireworks and smoke were included and there was a whole lot of dancing. The entire set from start to finish was a truly EPIC experience. The moving stage pieces to the lighting was spot on, at times it felt as if I were at a massive rave. Usher truly is an iconic entertainer, if you ever get the chance to see him live…DO IT. You will not regret it.

She & Him “Stay Awhile” Video Premiere

She & Him “Stay Awhile” Video Premiere

Indie duo She & Him (Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward) have released the music video for “Stay Awhile” the lead single off their forthcoming new album of “timeless standards,” Classics.

The video features Deschanel dancing and swaying through a retro-styled house, but there’s no one to catch her as she dips. Instead she’s left there to float in the air. We also see Ward strum along to an invisible guitar and sit on an invisible chair, which is pretty awesome.

The duo are simply messing around with green screens or shall say “magic,” either way…the video is retro-cool. Check it out!
