Usher Covers “Pumped Up Kicks” (VIDEO)

Check out Usher all alt-rocky and stuff, playing bass on a cover of “Pumped up Kicks” by Foster the People for the BBC1. He’s in the UK promoting his latest album, Looking for Myself, which dropped this week.

Before some of you leave “what’s this got to do with IDOL!” comments, I will say…not much. Except that Usher mentored during Season 9 and has performed on the show at least once.

I just REALLY like this cover, on a slow news day.
