However, there did not appear to be any merit to those rumors, which swirled on the web for much of the summer.

Will Usher Have Special Guests For This Year's Show?

As for Usher, he’s certainly a superstar in his own right. He has 18 top 10 hits, reports. His catalog of hits includes the #1 songs “U Got It Bad,” “Yeah!,” “My Boo,” and “OMG.”

Of course, Usher has had great collaborations throughout his career (“My Boo” with Alicia Keys, “Yeah!” With Lil Jon and Ludacris, and more) so we’ll definitely see a lot of speculation about who may join Usher on the stage.
