The multi-platinum selling US artist from Atlanta was due to visit us at Capital last week, but thanks to the volcanic ash from that Icelandic volcano, he was unable to make the trip over. But when I caught up with him on the phone, and told me he was genuinely disappointed he couldnt be in London this week..
And I had to ask Usher about another act confirmed for the Ball- a certain Justin Bieber! Usher helped propel the Canadian teenager to worldwide fame, but I wanted to find out if a planned duet with Justin is on the cards at the Summertime Ball? Usher wouldnt confirm or deny rumours Im afraid, but have a listen.
And great newsladies! Usher told me hes single and looking forward to seeing the ladies at Wembley and confirmed that hes planning 'a remarkable' show at Wembley.
And I had to ask him, is there anything you want to demand at Capitals Summertime Ball with ASOS.com? He told me, but I'm not quite sure if I can get him what he asked for...
