Usher closed out this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival by bringing out a surprise guest: Chris Brown. “He’s a friend, he’s a brother, he’s a passionate artist and I have the fortunate opportunity to have shared a song with him this year,” Usher said, before the younger R&B star joined him on stage.
The two of them performed “New Flame,” Brown’s current single off his new album X. (The album, also featuring “Loyal” and “X,” is predicted to debut second only to Barbra Streisand‘s tenth album Partners next week.) Their singing led to a dance-off, which led to Usher slipping off his high-tops and lighting them on fire – after all, neither of them had the flaming ‘X’ from the “New Flame” video handy.
