Usher also invited some features in his performance and collaborated with Will.i.am and Ludacris. However, it was his performance with Alicia Keys that grabbed attention for the wrong reasons. Their closeness during the performance drew many to insinuate more than what was. Gervonta Davis expressed concern, suggesting that Usher appeared too close to Alicia Keys during the performance. Davis emphasized that the situation might not have ended well if he were Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys’ husband.

As Usher immersed himself in the performance, Alicia Keys made a captivating entrance behind a vibrant red piano. She was adorned in a matching, sparkly red outfit. She mesmerized the audience with a rendition of her hit ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. The musical journey continued as Usher and Keys collaborated on their duet ‘My Boo’, creating a heartwarming moment that beautifully revisited their 2004 smash.

As the song concluded, Keys gracefully exited. However, right before his exit, Usher stood behind Keys, while the song faded out. Gervonta Davis mentioned this in his now-deleted tweet. He stated that he wouldn’t have felt comfortable if Usher had done the same with his wife.
