*Two weeks after undergoing foot surgery, Usher hopped out on stage Saturday at the first Global Citizen Earth Day concert on the National Mall and performed a 45-minute set.
And when he wasn’t bunny hopping, he was hobbling through songs with the assistance of custom-crafted gold crutches. The pieces from designer Elisabeth Weinstock include padding made out of snakeskin.

The concert also included Common, Mary J. Blige and closing headliners No Doubt.
The event coincided with the 45th anniversary of Earth Day (which takes place Wednesday April 22) as well as the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund.
