The 45-year-old music icon concluded his successful My Way Las Vegas residency this past Saturday, and the overwhelming emotions of the moment were evident. In a touching fan-made video, the still-vibrant 45-year-old artist knelt in tears, surrounded by his dancers and crew, while delivering a heartfelt performance of “Without You.” Regaining composure, Usher proceeded to showcase his vocal prowess by singing the 2011 David Guetta hit a capella, joined by both his band and an enthusiastic audience.
Expressing gratitude to the crowd, Usher bid farewell to the residency that commenced in July 2022, concluding with a heartfelt declaration: “God bless you, I love you.”
On social media, the singer of “Confessions” shared a video clip from 2004 where he discussed the possibility of a Las Vegas show. At that time, such performances were often viewed as a fallback for artists in the later stages of their careers. In the video, Usher confidently asserted, “I am such a theatrical artist,” emphasizing that any Vegas venture would be nothing short of phenomenal. He debunked the notion of it being a career wind-down, stating, “It will be a phenomenal show.” Reflecting on his journey, he captioned the post with a triumphant message: “I saw it then…look at me now.”
However, Usher shows no signs of slowing down. His next ventures include headlining the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show on February 11, coinciding with the release of his highly anticipated ninth studio album, “Coming Home.”
Expressing his excitement back in September, Usher stated, “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”
