On Thursday, June 30th hit R&B singer Usher Raymond performed at the Tiny Desk concert series. The performance itself was well praised. But what he truly took the internet by storm for, was a certain ‘watch this’ gesture. It’s safe to say, Twitter went wild with memes.
Singer Usher Raymond gave an impressive performance for the Tiny Desk concert series and also his hilarious gestures made the performance all the more memorable. The singer wrapped up Black Music Month with this performance.
He went on to perform some of his all-time hits for the concert series. Hits such as, You Make Me Wanna, Superstar, U Don’t Have to Call, Nice & Slow, Confessions Part II, and My Way.
Guest singers Eric Bellinger and Vedo accompanied Usher and elevated the performances further. The band also featured other musicians. Bassist, Dmitry Gorodetsky, trombonist Lemar Guillary, trumpeter Brandyn Phillips, saxophonist Jay Flat, keyboardist Darek Cobbs, guitarist Erick Walls, and drummer Ryan Carr.
However, ultimately, the legendary singer’s hilarious gestures during the performance of ‘Confession’ took the crown for the internet. As he directs two fingers over his eyes and whispers ‘watch this’, Twitter goes insane with memes.
The gesture sparked many entertaining memes on Twitter, each one funnier than the last. While some users complain that the meme is filling their timeline and about its unnecessary overuse, others are having an absolute riot with it.
One user writes, “The Usher “watch this” meme is hitting every time. Good work, everybody.” Another user references the meme in a break-up scenario. “When a toxic partner thinks you can’t live without them. Just Like Usher Said 🗣WATCH THIS”.
