However, once Usher has left the stage, the crowd, including myself, realizes he hasn’t performed a favorite yet. The song the whole tour is named after and instantly, upon this realization, the crowd and I begin to chant the biggest hit of the year, “OMG!” Usher returns of course, almost expecting it, but upon returning, he brings the entire audience to their feet. The show ended with perfected choreography by Usher and the other dancers, flashing lights, various explosions, confetti, and of course, an encore.
