Watch: Usher Performs ‘Twisted’ On ‘The Voice’

usher the voice us e1370915532104 Watch: Usher Performs Twisted On The Voice

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!

Usher The Voice coach thatgrapejuice Usher Signs On To Another Season of NBCs The Voice

It’s official!

Fans of  ‘Scream’ singer Usher may do just that now that reports have surfaced the Grammy winning crooner has signed on for yet another season of NBC‘s hit singing competition ‘The Voice’.

The singer is in the middle of season 4 where he and Shakira came on to temporarily replace singers Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera.  Now, reports indicate Ush and Shakira will go on hiatus for the show’s fall season (as Xtina and Cee Lo return), but both are due to return for Spring 2014!

The turn of the decade has seen R&B veteran Usher receive mix review for his experimentation on the Pop front.

Indeed, despite a number of EDM-flavoured hits like ‘DJ Got Us Falling In Love’ and ‘O.M.G.’, the Grammy-winning crooner’s faithful fanbase have oft-cried foul from fear the heartthrob was “selling out” or abandoning his sonic roots.

Well, if report from top producer Eric Bellinger is anything to go by, supporters of the singer’s more rhythmic offerings needn’t fear as his newest project will see a musical mecca of sorts to his R&B beginnings.

Bellinger’s news comes just a day after Ush took to ‘The Voice’ stage to deliver a cool version of jazz standard ‘The Look of Love’.  Take a look at both below:
