The 2012 American Music Awards are underway tonight (November 18) and to open the big show, Usher pulled out all the stops. The singer treated fans to snippets of three songs pulled from his latest album.
Usher started things off with the pumping “Numb.” It became clear early on that this was not going to be one of Ush’s strongest vocal performances. The tough vocals continued as he took on his hit single “Climax” but got much, much better when he launched into “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.” Vocal hiccups aside, Usher gave it his all and entertained.
“Numb,” “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop,” and “Climax” all appear on Usher’s latest album “Looking 4 Myself.” The set is in stores and available at online retailers now. Watch Usher’s AMAs performance below.
