During his three-song set for Saturday's "A Decade of Difference" concert for the William J. Clinton Foundation, Usher didn't let a wardrobe malfunction get the best of him. He acknowledged the long rip in the left leg of his pants during his performance of his hit "OMG" and continued with his routine. On Sunday night, he made light of the incident in a statement released exclusively to Yahoo! Music: "The show must go on," he said about his reaction to the mishap. "I work hard and let it all hang out. ... Lol." His ripped, baggy pants gave a new meaning to the phrase "hang loose."

The Decade of Difference concert at the Hollywood Bowl celebrated Bill Clinton's 65th birthday and the 10-year milestone of the Clinton Foundation. Throughout the night, unexpected moments surprised, shocked, and in the end, delighted the crowd.
Lady Gaga serenades First Family
President Clinton wanted a big show. And Lady Gaga delivered -- perhaps a bit too well. The singer changed the words of the song "Bad Romance" to "Bill Romance," stripping out of her dress to reveal a nude body suit underneath.
To the shock of the president, his wife, and his daughter, the singer proceeded to serenade the president, who was sitting just a few feet away from the dance diva. But the Lady won over the former First Family, who was caught up in the performance and dancing to the beat. Gaga slithered over to the stage where Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea stood and told them, "I'm going to dance with the whole family." She sang, "I love you Bill, and Chelsea too."

Former President Bill Clinton's Decade of Difference concert on Saturday night burned brightly with a parade of stars both onstage (Lady Gaga, Bono, Usher) and off (Barbra Streisand, Bonnie Raitt, Jane Fonda).
Even so, there were still a few fresh faces and unexpected moments in the Hollywood Bowl that left us with these burning questions.
Who was the striking blonde accompanying Kenny Chesney?
Considering he has 20 number one county chart hits and is Renee Zellweger's ex-husband, Kenny Chesney has soaked in his fair share of the limelight. But the stunning blonde who made the red carpet stroll with him on Saturday night is a comparative unknown. Those striking facial features (and legs) belong to Grace Potter, lead singer of a roots rock band called Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Potter later joined Chesney onstage to sing "You and Tequila," and if she seemed extremely comfortable during the duet, that's because she recorded the studio version with him on his last album.
