Usher Performs "Crash" On The Tonight Show
Usher seems to have had about 5 lead singles from his long-awaited follow up to 2012's Looking 4 Myself, all of which have been great, but apparently none getting a big enough reaction to launch the LP. Thankfully, with the release of the Young Thug-assisted "No Limit," and "Crash," Usher seems to have found his groove for the new album, taking the latter track to Fallon to perform with The Roots. Using special filming techniques to create a slow-motion-like experience, he made it one to remember. Not to mention, his falsetto is still as powerful as ever.

Obama Sings "Happy Birthday" To Usher
Usher has experienced a lot in his long career, to the point that he doesn't get star struck all that often. However, a recent experience at the White House must have had the singer feeling a little strange, if not in awe.

Usher Previews New Music In "Pepsi Challenge" Ad
