Usher has become the butt of the joke with his ‘3-second watch this’ dance move at the NPR Tiny Desk Concert. The NPR Tiny Desk concert is a series in which celebrities perform live with just their band, a mic, and nothing else.
While starting the title song from his classic album, “Confessions,” Usher’s two words “watch this” gave the soon-to-be viral moment. “Confessions” helped Usher win a Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Album in 2005.
During his performance, Usher looked straight into the camera and sang the song while making a hand gesture in which he covered his face with his index and middle fingers.
The 3-second move invited laughter from the crowd and soon became a viral meme, with Twitterati using it to fit every context.
