See the full 25-photo slideshow of Usher at the American Airlines Arena.

For the 19,600 lovely females (and their reluctant boyfriends, husbands, brothers, fathers, etc.) who turned Usher's New Year's Eve concert at the American Airlines Arena into a swooning, screaming, sweating mass of fandom, the coming of 2011 was all about one especially urgent question: "Which lucky girl is gonna trade saliva samples with Usher Raymond IV at midnight?"

Well, Crossfade can report that there were no makeout sessions during the show. (He also didn't get kicked in the head again.) But who knows what happened backstage. Or in Mr. Raymond's tour bus. Or at the afterparty.

So if you're the lucky lady who got with Big Ush last night, cherish that memory. Otherwise, check out the photos below of the tattooed, hard-bodied, leather-clad pop star doing work.

Just four of those 19,600 lovely females.

The swooning, screaming, and sweating got started with Trey Songz. Fun fact: He apparently invented sex.

Did you know this is how Usher gets around these days? He just descends out of the sky on a glittering futuristic platform.

To start the show, he wore this black, leather space commando costume. It looked cool but kinda uncomfortable.

And soon, Usher started stripping. The whole place got all wound up, just waiting for the pants to drop.
