Ciara was in the house but she asn’t honored with anything. She did, however, present an award during the event and even sung with Usher during the finale’.

He hit the stage first with “There Goes My Baby,” then performed Atlanta’s unofficial club anthem “Yeah” and ended with “O.M.G.” [Sidebar: Shout out to the drunk yt chicks in front of me. You’ll notice their hands throughout the entire video… lol!]
