Jay-Z: Usher Is in Line to Become the Next King of Pop


After watching Usher's performance in a tribute to Michael Jackson at 2010 Grammy Awards, Jay-Z believes that the 'My Boo' singer is about to become a new King of Pop.

Jay-Z was so impressed with Usher's tribute to Michael Jackson at Sunday night's, January 31 Grammy Awards, he's tipped the R&B star to become the new King of Pop. The "Yeah!" hitmaker joined Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson and Carrie Underwood to perform Jackson's "Earth Song" at the annual awards ceremony.

The "99 Problems" star was watching from the audience at Los Angeles' Staples Center - and he predicts a groundbreaking future for Usher. He tells Access Hollywood, "I thought the Michael Jackson tribute was fantastic and I thought Usher was doing a magnificent job."

"I think he's; He's one of the guys that's in line to, you know, fill those huge shoes. I don't wanna put that pressure on him, but I think he's one of the guys that's in line to do that."

    Usher, dont be too sure bout being the next KING OF POP, because that title was given to a very speical man that deserved it more than you. No one can repplace Michael then he himself. he is the best when it comes to pop, but dont get meh wrong, u r an excellent singer but not ready to be the king of pop.

    l don't think usher is ready to become the king of pop. Michael jackson was the king because he made history, and he was in show biz for a long time, like really a long time. I do believe there can be another king of pop, but it's going to be extreamly hard.

    ...besides, Usher just did alright in Sunday's night tribute. Nothing ground breaking. JZ doesn't know what the heck he's talking about. I think there might be some jealously going on.

    I like Usher but King of Pop? I don't think so. James Brown will always be known as the King of Soul. Aretha Franklin The Queen of Soul, Elvis the King of Rock and Michael Jackson the King of Pop! You can't pass the title on unless they are worthy. Usher's not there. Sorry.

    Ushers performance at the tribute wasn't all that. Anyway, what do i think?..I'm lmao...there will only ever be one King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The title "King of Pop" is forever taken. Usher will have to come up with his own title.

    he isnt saying that usher will BE the next king of pop. he's saying that usher has the talent and caliber to continue where mike left off. no one will ever take michael jackson's spot as the king of pop. nobody will ever be able to do what mike has done..whether as a artist or humanitarian. mike healed people. usher cant heal anything but his dick. but at least he sings and looks damn well doing it. and if he throwing usher in there.. he needs to put chris brown up there as well. that is if he can ever get over this blemish. because no matter what you say about chris brown.. his talent is undeniable.
