Usher has left a lot of fans disappointed after tricking them into a prank on April Fools day.

Usher has divided fans after pulling 'sick' April Fools prank of an unsuspecting crowd after tricking them that a very special guest would be joining him on stage.

The R&B star was headlining Dreamville Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina on Saturday, April 1, when he pulled the practical joke of announcing the A-list star.

The festival itself was packed full of guests - including Drake and J. Cole headlining on the Sunday night.

Halfway through Usher's set, the singer told the crowd that a certain someone would be appearing to join him on the stage.

"You know, I don’t know if you guys listened to some of the interviews that I did before we decided to do this show, but as promised, I said I would have a special surprise for you tonight, ladies and gentlemen."

Usher continued: "You guys wanna know what that surprise is? Ladies and gentlemen, without further adieu, put your hands together for the one, the only, Beyoncé."

Usher then went to check backstage for Queen Bey, before announcing "April Fools."

Of course, fans weren't too happy with the prank as one said: "this mf usher told the crowd hes bringing out beyoncé as an april fools joke… sick as hell."
