Usher sings, dances well into morning at Essence

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Usher helped kick off the Essence Music Festival with an opening night concert that began with him soaring above the Louisiana Superdome crowd on a rising platform as plumes of smoke heralded the beginning of a Friday night set that lasted well into Saturday morning.
Thousands cheered, danced and sang along as he brought them through most of his hits including "Yeah," "U Remind Me," "Confessions," "Burn," "You Make Me Wanna," "Bad Girl," "Lil Freak," "Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home)," "There Goes My Baby," "Lovers & Friends," "Love In This Club," and "Caught Up."
He ended the last concert of opening night with his hit single "OMG" at just minutes before 2 a.m.
