Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, opened the tribute with his rendition of “You Don’t Have To Call.”

Keke Palmer followed with a performance of Usher’s 1997 hit single, “You Make Me Wanna.”

Summer Walker then took the stage to perform “Good Good,” and Coco Jones captivated the audience with “There Goes My Baby.”

Marsha Ambrosius delivered a rendition of “Confessions Pt. 2,” and Chloe Bailey surprised everyone with “Good Kisser.”

Tinashe performed Usher’s first No. 1 single, “Nice & Slow.”

However, it was Teyana Taylor and Victoria Monét who brought me to my feet while watching from home.

The dynamic duo set the stage ablaze with their performance of “Bad Girl.”

Last but certainly not least, Latto closed out the set with a rendition of Ludacris’ verse on Usher’s infectious classic, “Yeah!”

Following his musical tribute, Usher took the stage to accept his Lifetime Achievement Award.

He immediately put everyone on notice by informing the audience that he didn’t write a speech because he wanted to be “present” in the moment. Usher also admitted that he likes to talk.

However, it wasn’t long before the R&B superstar started keeping it real about his journey in the music business, resulting in him being muted to viewers at home due to excessive profanity.

Social Media Reacts

Twitter buzzed with mixed reactions, as people shared their praises and criticisms of the tribute and Usher’s acceptance speech.
