Usher accidentally kicked in the face while seducing a fan on stage

Usher‘s OMG tour made its way through New York’s Madison Square Garden on Monday (Dec. 13). As I said in my review, it was filled with booms and pows from pyrotechnics and explosions. But there was one bang received that Usher totally didn’t expect when brought a fan on stage to sing “Trading Places.”  Excited, she was eager to get close to the R&B stud. Seemingly living out a dream, she wrapped her legs around him during their hug and then the two slow danced. But things got a little rough after he led her to the couch.

She started off lying on his chest as he sang into her ear and pecked her on the cheek. Then as he prepared to cap off the song–just eight words away from the end–she sprouted up. Attempting to straddle Usher, she whipped her leg up and almost across him. Her heeled shoe caught Usher’s face before it got there, though. Ouch. Gasps filled the Garden. Embarrassed and so very sorry, she immediately apologized. The star took it all in stride. “We play rough in the bed,” he joked. “We kick each other in the face and all kind of good stuff.” They hugged and that was that.

Check out the video below. Things go south around the 9:15 mark.

I’ve seen fans try some bold stuff at shows before but this is by far the most awkward moment I’ve laid eyes on. Can you think of any you’ve seen in the past? What would you have done had you been in that position? Let us know.

    What he really needs is a kick in the a$$, the way he has been behaving the last couple years, surprise he could fit his huge ego into the venue.

    That wasn’t the kind of booty call that Usher was expecting!
