Set to a playlist created by Usher -- the first person to ever help curate the soundtrack -- the pyrotechnic show over New York's Hudson River was incredible to watch ... if not to hear. The pop superstar now faces criticism for playing what many are saying was too much Usher.
Indeed, while his playlist included songs from Jimi Hendrix, Kanye West, Rihanna, Jay-z, Frank Sinatra, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, it also had four of his own hits: "Euphoria," "Yeah!," "Omg," and David Guetta's "Without You" (vocals by Usher).
