Viral view of Usher wearing gloves has been replaced like a hot topic with his hands all over Alicia Keys during Super Bowl LVIII.
Usher, who was patrolling the stage during the big match’s brilliant halftime performance, brought out Keys mid-set to energize his old-school entertainment act.
The multi-talented Keys did not disappoint, performing and singing – and at times upstaging Usher himself – while wearing a huge, flowing red dress.
A day after a halftime performance that fans were divided on in social media discussions, a hot topic continued to come up following Kansas City’s 25-22 overtime victory.
Usher had a hold of Keys, who is married to Swizz Beatz, a record producer and musician.
Beatz quickly took to Instagram to respond to the growing drama, insisting that critics and haters were “talking about the wrong thing!!!”
“Can’t you see this awesome dress covering the entire stadium,” Beatz posted. “Tonight’s performance was simply amazing with 2 amazing Giants! Congratulations @usher and my love @aliciakeys, this song is a classic. We’re not making negative vibes about this, we’re making history. “
Usher remained busy.
The veteran musician — who once invested $9 million in the $375 million Cleveland Cavaliers, an NBA team now worth $3.2 billion — married music executive Jennifer Goicoechea at the Super Bowl era, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Which meant that even though Usher was all over Keys on stage, he was also either already newly married or about to acquire his own ring.
Meanwhile, Beatz has been very supportive of his super-talented wife.
Two weeks before the big game in Vegas, an emoji-filled happy birthday message went up on Instagram.
“This is a true Queen BDAY. January 25th has never been so blessed,” Beatz posted. “My first message in advance on your birthday. Wishing you many more blessings on your incredible journey. We love you and send you the greatest love, Queen.”
Sound problems and accusations of lip syncing hurt Usher’s performance.
Fans also didn’t like that he got so close to the married Keys in front of a worldwide audience.
“I know Swizz is sick,” one fan tweeted.
“Why is he so touchy?” » posted a second fan.
“Usher thinks he’s stylish,” a third fan wrote.
“Alicia saves the day,” said a fourth fan.
But Usher got married while performing at the Super Bowl in Las Vegas, while Keys’ husband was fine with Usher getting handsy on stage.
Taylor Swift also hugged Travis Kelce at midfield after the Chiefs’ overtime victory.
With all the drama and action, Super Bowl LVIII became the most-watched television broadcast in American history.
