The Las Vegas Aces continued their victory tour Friday night at Usher’s “My Way” Las Vegas residency show.

The connection between the back-to-back champions and the eight-time Grammy Award winner started after their first title in 2022, when star forward A’ja Wilson invited Usher to the Aces’ championship parade. He didn’t make an appearance, but Wilson was undeterred, inviting him again to the 2023 parade.

While Usher could not attend the parade on Oct. 23, he did not let Wilson’s invitation go unanswered. Instead, he invited the 2023 Finals MVP and her teammates to his concert.

“I wanted to invite you to come see the show, come see me do it my way here in Vegas,” he said in a social media video. “We stick together, we love one another. Congratulations on this day and I’ll see you soon.”

The Aces made the most of their experience at the concert. “Villain era” Sydney Colson stole the show as they danced on stage, but the most memorable moment came when Usher serenaded Wilson with a special remix of his hit “There Goes My Baby.”
