Watch: Usher Performs US National Anthem At Lebron James’ ‘Cavaliers’ Homecoming

usher national anthem lebron thatgrapejuice Watch: Usher Performs US National Anthem At Lebron James Cavaliers Homecoming

Ever prepared vocally, Usher stepped into the spotlight last night to perform a song often synonymous with vocal scrutiny – the US National Anthem.

The star, who is gearing up to hit the road on his new tour ‘The UR Experience’, rocked the house with his take on ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ at the Cavaliers game. Widely watched, the event was hailed for being the homecoming for basketball star Lebron James.

Check our Mr Raymond’s rousing offering below…

While not boasting the vocal fireworks of renditions of some of music’s most celebrated divas, Usher’s take on the track was simple, structured, and ultimately well-delivered. Good stuff.

    Slayed, Usher’s vocals >>> p******** Kelly, Judas TimberFake, Treysina Songz, September Alsinever, Robina Thicke, Bruno Mars…and most definitely better than Janice Derulo, Fistopher Brown, Justina Bieber, Conner Mayonnaise

    @Stephy

    His vocals are most definitely better than P.edophile Kelly. 8701 vocals alone >>> TP2-3-4-5, Caramel Factory, Winter is over, Black underwear and many of those forgettable albums P.edphile Kelly released.

    You girls must be delusional if you think Bruno James Brown wannabe Mars is touching Usher on the mic. I have all of Bruno Mars’ albums and his vocals aren’t touching Usher’s.

        Listen to 8701, Usher’s vocals slay the game. His range is much much wider than Bruno Mars and P.edophile Kelly.

    Usher is still so s***. He looked bored here though. I hope he brings that stamina and new prerecorded vocals to the stadium. I can’t wait to see him on my birthday. My heart will melt.

    Not delusional, Bruno Mars is just a step up from Treysina Songz but they both can’t sing better than Usher. Bruno sounds like there is a rodent stuck in his throat, and I like him.

    His vocals aren’t as clear, clean and crisp as Usher’s. Usher just slays the whole game.

      COME ON! ‘Bruno is just one step above Trey Songz.’ You’re discrediting one of the best male LIVE singers out right now and lumping him with Trey’s Nocalist a**. That’s unfair tbh. It’s cool that you like Usher – I do too but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Bruno can SANG!

    @LovelyBird: Baby, you know I loves me some you. But, ummm you are being a bit delusional here by calling P.edphile Kelly forgettable. Chile, R PEDOPHILEEE Kelly will ALWAYS be the King Of R&B tbh… Not to mentions, he literally wrote, produced his ENTIRE catalog BY HIS SELF! I love Usher tho.

    King of RnB my as$ not when he had to cling to Usher for relevancy during Usher’s LEGENDARY REIGNS of 8701 and Confessions.

    Usher is just better in every sense. Better music, better singer, better dancer, better catalog of music.

    P.edo Kelly can write a good song yes, but that’s where it ends.

    First off Usher is a very BASIC singer even Miguel is a better vocalist so that means Usher cannot compete with R.Kelly… R.Kelly is the King Of R&B for a reason.

    Usher is great. He is the only star in HISTORY to have an 100% R&B album go DIAMOND. But, still.. R Kelly MUSICALLY, VOCALLY & LYRICALLY >>>>>> Usher Raymond. Even, MJ received one of his biggest hits from R Kelly.

    R.Kelly wrote MJ’s last #1 hit…That’s bigger than any endorsement from the KOP.Yeah,Usher is superior as a vocalist but R.Kelly is simply a greater musician whether we wanna admit it or not.

      This was very laid back and his voice is crisp. I love Usher and I think R. Kelly is problematic but the latter is the better artist which also includes vocal superiority. I dunno what Robert sounds like these days but I’ve always known him to have raw power and soul. Even though Usher’s voice is very agile, he’s no match for Kells and Bruno is probably a bigger belter too. And even with all that, Usher is not a basic singer. Like, he’s gotten better with age. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3t0KkwhdgzU
