Usher showcased his live singing chops Saturday night (May 12) on "SNL," where he performed two tracks off his forthcoming seventh studio album, Looking 4 Myself, due June 12. The 33-year-old crooner moved through "Scream" and "Climax" all while keeping the fancy footwork to a minimum.

Dressed in black shades, a black leather jacket and a graphic T-shirt, Usher greeted the audience before he went to work performing "Scream." "We at it again 'SNL' and this time I'm gonna make you scream," he shouted.

He then sang "Climax," proving his ability to rock the crowd with his live vocals.

This month, Usher covers Billboard magazine and will perform at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards May 20.
