Friday, July 29, 2022 | The night | Usher “My Way” Live Video

At 8:00 pm on the dot, the crew split into two sprinter cars to head to Dolby Live @ Park MGM Las Vegas. I sat next to the entertainment system so I could play DJ for a quick 15 minute run to the stage, I played Usher’s biggest hits, “My Way,” “You Make Me Wanna ,” “U Don’t”. Must call,” and more! Note: All of this was accomplished by Usher hours later.

We were ushered through a private door behind the stage and up the stairs into a lounge to relax, drink more Rémy libations and take photos in front of a silver Usher bar before Access to our VIP section is just steps from the main stage.

As the lights dimmed, an opening act by Usher’s belt dancers set the scene and the two-hour live event featured several costume changes, a live band, a “Bad Girl” P-Valley-esque pole dance performance, and Usher’s. Flipper’s highly sought after Roller Boogie roller skating moves in his latest musical appearance with City Girl, “Love Love”. With classic hits like “Caught up,” “My Boo,” “U Remind Me,” “Let It Burn,” “Climax,” “OMG,” “Yeah!,” “Confessions,” “Nice & Slow, ” “Hey Dad,” and more of the stadium was on their feet belting out every word of the song.

With music director LA Reid sitting a few feet down to my right player Jermaine Dupri sitting right next to me, believe me when I tell you there is GREAT in the house!

At the end of the show, Usher was moved to tears by his performance after receiving a standing ovation.

“In this music that I’m doing, there’s been a lot of trouble, hard times, celebrations and I have to show respect to the two gentlemen in the house tonight,” Usher said in a statement. when the main stage lights turn on. “LA Reid for signing me as we go this year to the 25th anniversary of “My Way,” I want to give love and respect to my brother Don Chi-Chi, Regular JD, Jermaine Dupri.

“I’m still singing to you but I just wanna talk to you tonight, if that’s okay,” Usher asked the crowd before giving more details about his trip to gender, love and relationships. “There is nothing easy about this thing called man. You have to go through the sh * t where you can sometimes and you manage to learn from mistakes. So, for those relationships that have grown from these songs that we have made, I am very grateful to God for allowing me to be a vessel to help you overcome your problems. He chose me to speak to you through these songs.”

To our surprise, Usher decided to give a preview of a music video he made in the studio so that it could become a song. (*Use your imagination here*) With unique lyrics like “I’m not gonna hold you,” “I wore all black like a funeral,” there’s no Boyz II Men but the end of the road. ,” and “I have to admit that I probably cried a billion times,” are the sentiments found in a new Usher song that allows us to capture a few points.

“Thank you for listening,” Usher said calmly as he walked off stage.
