The R&B star Usher joined the ‘surprise appearance’ bandwagonย this Coachella, when he came out in the middle of a Major Lazer set and performed a tribute to the late great, Prince!

Usher came out to perform not one, but two Prince songs, namely I Would Die 4 U and 1999. The crowd didn’t expect him to come at all, so this made it a genuine surprise.

Twitter ran amok over his appearance at Coachella 2016, and his tribute to the legend was well-received.

Usher making an appearance with Major Lazer at Coachella isn’t surprising at all. His soulful single ‘Climax’ was, after all, produced by Diplo himself.

This year’s Coachella has seen a lot of tributes to the greats Prince and David Bowie. Prince sadly passed away last week, triggering several headliners and side acts to pay their respects on stage this year.
