Usher's Emotional Farewell: A Touching End to His Las Vegas Residency

Usher delivers an emotional farewell at his final Las Vegas residency show, 'My Way', leaving fans moved and inspired

Usher showed strong emotions during his 100th and last performance for his My Way Las Vegas residency. The 45-year-old singer was seen dropping to his knees and covering his face with his hands while singing "Without You," according to fan videos from Saturday, December 2nd. Usher's dancers gathered around him on stage and offered their support.

Usher rose to his feet after a brief pause, then turned away from the audience as his dancers surrounded him, offering pats on the shoulder. The eight-time Grammy winner then sang the final lyrics of the song and urged the audience to sing along. "God bless you, I love you," he concluded at the end of the performance.

The next day, Usher shared a video on X (previously known as Twitter) in which he re-shared a 2004 interview with Trevor Nelson. During the interview, Usher had expressed his belief that if he were to go to Las Vegas, it would be "the most phenomenal thing you’ve ever seen in your life." Captioning the retweet of the clip on Sunday, December 3, Usher wrote, "I saw it then…look at me now."

In September 2020, Usher announced his Las Vegas residency from July 2021 to January 2022, which was later extended until the end of 2023. "I have missed performing for my fans live and I am so excited to see them in Las Vegas," he said in a statement. As his residency in Las Vegas comes to an end, Usher will be preparing to perform at the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show.

Usher expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl, stating that he is looking forward to delivering a show unlike any other he has done before. He also manages the responsibility of raising four children, two of whom he shares with his ex-wife and the other two with his current partner.

"The greatest challenge is finding balance - making time for everything and still having enough for yourself," he told We exclusively in February. "Without personal balance, you can't balance it all for them. I truly want to be present at every recital, every basketball game, every step."

He added, "And if it's meant to be, I hope to pass on incredibly valuable lessons that will guide them when I'm not around. Surprisingly, that's when it really counts. It's more important than anything."
