Usher feels pressure to be new Michael Jackson

Usher has revealed that he feels pressured to fill the late Michael Jackson’s shoes.

The ‘OMG’ singer feels that the death of Jackson last year left a hole on the music scene and he feels it is up to him to fill it.

He said to the Daily Star newspaper: "You know, we lost Michael Jackson. A lot of pressure is on me and I don't mind taking it."

In Jackson style, Usher is also planning a monster tour for next year: "I wanted to make sure that you get that type of experience that leaves you saying, 'OMG.' The impression that I would like to leave is that this guy is really stepping it up to a level where people can hopefully compare me to people like Michael Jackson.

"I basically tear myself apart emotionally, energetically, connecting with you and making sure that you enjoy this moment."
