Nas stole the show during his guest spot on stage.

Usher has had a star-studded week performing in Las Vegas. He's kicked his high profile residency in the city up to a new gear and bringing some big names with him. Dr. Dre, J-Lo, Doja Cat, Summer Walker, and Jessica Alba all showed up to either attend or even join the R&B singer on-stage. But one guest totally stole the show from everyone coming on stage and playing a pair of his classic tracks.

That guest star was Nas. The rap legend took the stage on Friday, October 20 during Usher's performance and he made the most of his time. He unpacked songs like "If I Rules The World (Imagine That) and "You Owe Me" to a crowd that was absolutely feeling it. He took to Instagram after the performance to share more thoughts about it. "your show was immaculate! I had a great time!" he captioned the accompanying Instagram post. Check out the clip of his performance below.

Usher's Vegas residency has already made a pretty significant impact on the city. That became clear when Las Vegas honored him with not only a key to the city, but also a holiday named after him. October 17 was officially declared Usher Raymond Day in Las Vegas. The honor comes in advance of another connection between the singer and the city.

Next year, Usher will take the stage as part of the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime show. He's also due to release a brand new album that very same night, his first since 2016's Hard II Love. The announcement of his halftime show performance has made his ongoing Vegas residency even more popular. Fans have showed out in an attempt to get a sneak preview at what the entire country will see during the halftime show. What do you think of Nas joining Usher on stage during his Las Vegas residency?
