Bailiff officially brought the OMG to Las Vegas.

The multi-talented artist, 42, kicked off his residency show at the famed Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Friday night – and he didn’t hold back.

Usher didn’t say much to the sold-out crowd of 4,300 during the 90-minute show, instead letting his music and endless barrage of No.1 songs do the talking. The star also didn’t hesitate to play her hits, including “Yeah”, “Caught Up” and “Confessions”.

In a city unafraid of its vast assortment of adult entertainment, Usher’s show got scorching at times, featuring dancers showing off their moves on stripper poles.

The vibe of the nightclub was also bolstered by “Ush Bucks”, fake dollar bills with Usher’s face that fell from the rafters on the crowd throughout the night.

While all of this was happening, Usher continued to show off his own dancing and singing skills, much to the crowd’s delight. Taking things to a whole new level, the eight-time Grammy winner has even performed on roller skates.

While rarely speaking directly to his fans during the night, Usher shared a special moment with the crowd at the start of the show, as he walked through the audience and gave them his attention.

Vegas is tonight! “, he tweeted to his 12 million followers a few hours before the start of the residency.

The Usher Residence marked the first major new residence to hit the Las Vegas Strip since the coronavirus pandemic. The show itself was a smashing success months before Usher took the stage – the first set of a dozen shows sold out so quickly that six more performances had to be added.

It was clear that Usher’s fans, well, misunderstood him.
