Usher continues to soar in his career revival, securing six nominations in the latest round of NAACP Image Awards. Rap-Up has confirmed his recognition in categories such as Entertainer of the Year and Outstanding Male Artist. Notable contenders like Chris Brown, Burna Boy, Fantasia Barrino, and recent Oscar nominee Colman Domingo will be vying for these prestigious awards alongside Usher.

Victoria Monet dominates the women’s categories with five nominations, taking the lead with her outstanding contributions. The “On My Mama” performer is in contention for awards like Outstanding Female Artist.

Derrick Johnson, CEO of NAACP, expressed excitement about celebrating the achievements of this year’s nominees. He mentioned their remarkable contributions across various fields such as film, television, streaming, music, literature, podcasts, and more, inspiring audiences globally.

For those unable to catch Usher at the highly anticipated Super Bowl halftime performance, an alternative awaits at the 2024 Lovers & Friends festival. Scheduled for May 4 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, the one-day event boasts a star-studded lineup featuring Lil Wayne, Nas, Ludacris, Nelly, Cam’ron, Jeezy, Snoop Dogg, Backstreet Boys, and many others.

The festival promises a nostalgic experience, with Usher set to perform his 2004 hit album “Confessions,” while Lil Wayne will showcase “Carter III” from 2008. Pre-sale tickets are currently available on the festival’s website.

In a poignant moment last December, Usher bid farewell to his celebrated Las Vegas residency. The R&B legend, visibly emotional during his final performance at Dolby Live—Park MGM on December 2, broke down in tears while performing “Without You.” In a fan-captured video, Usher kneels, covers his face, and expresses gratitude to the sold-out crowd, saying, “God bless you, I love you.” Earlier in the show, he serenaded Mary J. Blige and H.E.R., leaving an indelible mark on the memorable occasion.
