Usher made a surprise appearance at SXSW Friday night. Shocking festival attendees, he showed up on stage with alt-rock band Afghan Wings in what looked like a leopard print jacket and performed a couple songs like "Climax" and "U Got It Bad."
While on stage, Usher also took a moment to send his thoughts and well wishes to Lil Wayne, who had been hospitalized.
"Lil Wayne is going through a real hard time right now, y'all. I want to send a lot of positive energy out there right now," he said.
Usher later performed "Bad Girl" and "Lovers and Friends."
Later this month, Usher will make his debut as a coach on "The Voice."
