With his stint on ‘The Voice’ largely hailed a success, Usher is (smartly) ensuring he milks the platform for all it’s worth. Case, point, his performance of ‘Twisted’ on tonight’s episode.
The popular coach” – who will sit out the Fall season of the show- electrified the stage with a live showing the track, which fused shades of James Brown and Michael Jackson with his own trademark performing style.
Produced by Pharrell Williams, we imagine the cut is receiving a push thanks to the Neptunes star’s renewed popularity (see: Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’, Daft Punk, and the like). Whatever the reason, it’s great to see Mr Raymond continuing to plug its parent album ‘Looking 4 Myself’, while cooking up its follow-up.
Is ‘Twisted’ likely to set the charts ablaze or revive the project it sits on? We doubt it. However, the fact it birthed a performance such as the one below has us feeling wholly appreciative.
Watch Usher work after the jump!
