Usher Starts Las Vegas Caesar’s Palace Residency With A Bang
Usher went all out with his first performance at Caesar’s Palace, setting the tone for the rest of his Las Vegas residency.
The longtime star delighted fans with his talents, singing his greatest hits throughout strenuous dance routines. He even performed on rollerskates, all while faux dollar bills called “Ush Bucks” fell from the rafters.
The eight-time Grammy winner addressed his 12 million followers on Twitter just hours before he went on stage.

The singer’s residency marks a return to normalcy for the Las Vegas strip, as it’s the first major residency at Caesar’s Palace since the pandemic began. The show was a hit before the Usher even stepped on stage. The first dozen performances sold out so quickly that six more had to be added.
While the star didn’t address his screaming fans for the majority of the night, he did walk through the crowd, in the beginning, greeting his admirers before returning to the stage and delivering an outstanding performance.
