Usher brought Chris Brown out as a special guest during his ever-so-popular Las Vegas residency. Chris performed several songs, and Usher told him while on stage, "I love you, for life. You a great. You’re a legend. We love you and gon' continue to keep uplifting you, bro. I love you more." Chris responded by giving Usher a hug as the crowd cheered. People have recently called Usher the King of R&B and Usher kindly accepted it by saying "I mean, you call me that, I’ll definitely carry it. I'mma tilt my crown knowing that I'm standing on the shoulders of all of the icons of our time." Usher also said, "It is Michael [Jackson] that I stand on the shoulders of. It is James Brown that I stand on the shoulders of. It is Ronald Isley I stand on the shoulders of. It is Luther Vandross, it is Barry White, it is Teddy Pendergrass, it is all of these incredible artists like Marvin Gaye that will never be forgotten as long as there’s a breath in my body to breathe. "It's, you know, all of them that I stand on the shoulders of. And as a result of that, yeah, you wanna give me that crown? You tell me who gonna do it better." Its great that Usher gave Michael Jackson his props as well as Chris Brown, it shows he is comfortable with who he is.
