Usher, the renowned American singer, songwriter and dancer, has been making headlines for his recent performance at his Las Vegas residency show. During the Dreamville festival concert on April 1, Usher pulled off an epic April Fool's prank on his fans by teasing a special guest appearance from none other than Beyoncé. The moment was captured on social media and quickly went viral. Fans were left in awe as Usher teased Beyoncé's arrival on stage, only to reveal that it was an April Fool's joke. Although some fans were disappointed that Beyoncé did not actually appear on stage, they still enjoyed the show and Usher's hilarious prank.



During his set, Usher paused to speak directly to his fans. He said, "You know, I don't know if you guys listened to some of the interviews I did before we decided to do this show, but as promised, I said I would have a special surprise for you tonight, ladies and gentlemen. You guys wanna know what that surprise is? Without further ado, put your hands together for the one, the only, Beyoncé."

The crowd erupted into applause and roars of excitement were heard as Usher directed his attention to the wings of the stage. As he stepped out of the spotlight, his left hand, which had been gesturing toward his special guest's entrance, slowly folded when no one appeared on stage. 



Fans' applause stopped as they became confused, and Usher continued to toil in his antics by running to the side of the stage as if he were talking to someone. When he returned to the mic, he pointed at the crowd and said, "April Fools," before laughing at the prank. 

Usher is currently performing at his Las Vegas residency show. The show features an epic set list of hits from his breakthrough second album My Way through to 8701 and 2004's Confessions, which includes the banger Yeah! with Lil Jon and Ludacris, as per Hollywood Life.



Although Usher needs no guests to make his show a success, his teasing of Beyoncé's appearance is a testament to their friendship and previous collaborations. The two artists came up in the industry at the same time and have worked together on Usher's 2008 track Love in This Club Part II along with Lil Wayne. Usher has previously called the record a "really special record." He also made a cameo in Beyoncé's 2003 video for Naughty Girl, where they shared a choreographed dance break together.

Usher headlined Day One of the two-day event with massive hits like U Don’t Have To Call, Love in This Club, and Lovers And Friends, along with his latest single Glu. The event also featured performances from Ari Lennox, Sean Paul, SiR, Key Glock and others, as per Revolt.
