Donald Glover, Keke Palmer, Tinashe, and more paid homage to the iconic music and dance moves that made Usher a living legend.

On Sunday night, June 30, BET honored Usher with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Before he accepted the award, iconic producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis kicked things off by paying homage to the Coming Home singer. The performance began with Childish Gambino’s cover of “U Don’t Have to Call.” He joined fellow singer-actor Keke Palmer, who took over with her rendition of “You Make Me Wanna.” The tribute continued with Summer Walker after she performed her collaboration with Usher, “Good Good.”

Coco Jones slowed things down a bit with her spicy rendition of “There Goes My Baby.” She emerged from the crowd and went up to Usher himself as she performed his 2010 hit. From there, Marsha Ambrosius took on his 2004 smash “Confessions.” The stage lit up as soon as Chloe Bailey made her way to the mic. She busted out all the moves as she belted out “Good Kisser.” Usher’s iconic dance routines were brought to life as Tinashe performed “Nice & Slow,” and Teyana Taylor performed “Bad Girl” with help from Victoria Monét.

The tribute performance concluded with Latto, who turned the stage into a club in the early 2000s with her rendition of “Yeah!” The Atlanta native was joined by all the ladies who paid homage to Usher’s award-winning catalog and memorable moves on stage. The Lifetime Achievement Award winner was in the front row and appeared to enjoy every minute of it.
