    I saw the photo of Usher being moved to tears. Aww, it’s good to see him finally being recognized for the work he’s put in over the past two decades. He’s always been somewhat overlooked in that aspect in comparison to the other big pop stars from his peer group (Bey, Jt and Brit) so I’m sure it meant a lot to him. As for Kanye, he’s very much so deserving of this honor as his catalog of albums and producer credits are excellent. Congrats to them and the other honorees.
