The r&b star used to keep things "Nice & Slow," as he put it in his 1998 hit, but these days, Usher is in more of an uptempo dance-pop mode. "OMG" and "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love" are among the finest--and fleetest--products of Top 40 radio's current Euro-house obsession. Expect plenty of fancy footwork tonight to accompany those tunes, as well as a throwback or two to his on-bended-knee era. With Akon and the Cataracs.
