Usher Surprises SXSW Audience In Leopard Print, Performs ‘Climax’ and ‘U Got It Bad’

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."
