The Lifetime Achievement BET Award has been previously bestowed upon esteemed artists such as Whitney Houston, Prince, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Samuel Jackson, and Lionel Richie.

Usher, who delivered a memorable performance at the Super Bowl half-time show earlier this year in Las Vegas, described it as one of the highlights of his career. He emphasized the importance of perfection in such high-profile events, aiming to create an unforgettable experience for his fans.

In a pre-event interview with Vogue, Usher expressed his desire for the performance to be a celebration for everyone who has been part of his journey over the past three decades. He also aimed to instill hope and positivity through his music, particularly in challenging times, fostering a sense of optimism and a vision for a brighter future.
