He’s a singer, a dancer, a producer, a songwriter and an actor. And as one lucky fan discovered on the TODAY plaza Friday, Usher is a darn good kisser, too.
As the eight-time Grammy winner made his way to the stage crooning his new hit single “She Came to Give It to You,” he danced with people in the crowd, slapped high-fives, and stopped to offer a smooch to a stunned female spectator hanging out near a bakery.
Usher said that’s what concertgoers can expect on his UR Experience tour, which kicks off in November and is slated to hit 27 cities in North America.
“I can’t wait to get back to the stage and the unpredictability of what it is,” he told Matt , Natalie and Carson in front of the screaming crowd. “You never know what’s gonna happen. City to city, it’s a different show every night.”
Later, he added, “I may be in the audience ... and you might get a kiss.”
Things only got hotter from there, with Usher dipping into his vast archive for a medley of “U Don’t Have To Call” and “Caught Up.”
The muggy New York weather proved no match for the star performer’s energy as he treated fans to two more songs: “OMG” and “Good Kisser.”
Still, as Tamron revealed to viewers during a post-performance chat, Usher’s crew had to cool him down with mini-fans once the star left the stage.
“You know what? I sweat,” Usher laughed. “I think about dancing and start sweating.”
“I sweat watching you dance,” Willie quipped.
Usher’s eighth studio album, “UR,” is expected to drop later this year.
