Justin Bieber Challenges Usher to a Dance-Off

Originally posted 04/30/2012 02:35PM

Usher got a run for his money when Justin Bieber challenged him to a dance-off during his performance on the off-Broadway show, Fuerza Bruta, Friday night.

"It was a total surprise, and it was so cool," said a member in the audience.

Usher performed in the show and debuted songs from his upcoming album Looking for Myself. Bieber was there to support his mentor, but the singer surprised him by coming into the audience and smashing a confetti-filled prop onto his head. They hugged and Bieber then started an impromptu dance-off.

The verdict is out on who won, but Bieber seemed to be into Usher's moves, and the young singer later Tweeted, "@usherraymondiv U KILLED IT yesterday."

Meanwhile, Usher showed off his skills again the following night when he performed as a man running on a treadmill. He also thanked the cast and crew privately backstage after his final performance.

Halle Berry and boyfriend Olivier Martinez shared a quiet date night at Iris, Cirque du Soleil's film-history-themed show at L.A.'s Kodak Theatre. Berry, who is recovering from a broken foot, was wearing her boot-style cast and was very low-key, a source says, as she took in the performance. The same night, the two stopped by Katsuya Hollywood for a private dinner in the Dragon Room. The couple, who didn't have a reservation and just walked into the restaurant, had a "relaxing night together," an onlooker tells us.

Apparently you're never too young for a little ballet: Natalie Portman and 6-month old son Aleph attended the premiere of Benjamin Millepied's latest pieces at the Opera de Lyon in Lyon, France. The two came in "just after the curtain," a theatergoer tells us, "and stood in the aisle by the back row." Portman was holding her son and he was smiling and gazing at the stage. Afterward, the casually-dressed actress brought her son backstage to congratulate his father. – Peter Mikelbank
