During his Wednesday night concert in Berlin, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Usher[/lastfm] attempted to play through the pain despite being sick… and it didn’t turn out well. After going through lackluster renditions of “Obsession” and “I Need A Girl”, combined with some half-hearted dance moves (totally NOT Usher-like, at all!), he called it quits and left the stage.
Poor guy, nobody likes to go to work sick, and we commend Usher for at least trying to not disappoint thousands of German fans. When we saw him sit down on the stage, we knew he was done for the night.
Usher‘s rep has since explained that the singer is suffering from an upper respiratory illness, and select European shows including Rotterdam and Antwerp will be rescheduled for later dates.
