Usher kicked off the ‘TODAY’ show Summer 2012 Toyota Concert Series this morning (May 18) in New York City! Who better to usher in summer than Usher himself? He performed a historical hit ‘OMG’ and his latest smash ‘Climax.’

The singer, looking fine in a green jacket, shades and a bling rope chain, was doing those cool, robotic, choreographed moves while flanked by bootylicious dancers during ‘OMG.’ Is it us or can Usher groove like Michael Jackson?

The song was a high-energy way to kick off the summer. But Usher is about dynamics, offering up one fast song and then one slow tempo sexy jam. It was a welcome balance that showed both sides of the R&B superstar.

Before he performed the falsetto-driven, sexy jam ‘Climax,’ he spoke about his evolution as an artist. While his accolades – sales numbers and industry awards like Grammys — were mentioned, he spoke about how important it is to be a father and to raise his kids into fine, incredible young men and gave them a shout out, since they were watching at home.

Too cute. We like seeing Usher in dad mode amidst a national TV performance. He then launched into ‘Climax’ and mid-song, he ripped off the jacket to show off his toned arms. It was met with screams from the crowd. He even sang on his knees a little bit, too.

Hello, summer 2012!
