Usher took home the 2004 Billboard Music Awards Artist of The Year honor at last night’s show in Las Vegas. Usher said upon accepting the honor: “Check it out. Listen. I thank first and foremost my lord and savior Jesus Christ for making each moment happen in my life. I thank my mother, my team, Yolanda, Icon Services. Todd Sams, man, I am happy this is the last award. I have a lot of people to thank. Please be patient with me. I thank all of my team, Sara, Jamaica, all of my band, everybody, my personal team, [Jermaine Dupri]. J.D. It’s been about 10 years since this career started. We don’t put out an album without number one records. I thank you for believing in me and all I do. I love you, too. L.A. Reid, Clive Davis, Shauna Miller, Daryl Jones, Mark Pitts, Chris Chambers, Simone, I thank everybody. I’m just so happy. Sorry if I’m taking too long. If I forgot anybody, I am extremely sorry.
