R&B star Usher surprised his biggest fan, Twana Denard , on the show to help kick off our Wildest Dreams season. On the show, he gave Twana and her friend, Athena, front-row tickets for his show in Chicago. But there were more surprises in store during the concert.

"His bodyguard came over to me and he lifted me up over the barricade," Twana says. "I was trembling. I was nervous. I was happy. I was just, like, 'Yes. Do whatever you want. I'm of age. Just go ahead.'"

After dancing together, Twana found herself on a couch onstage. Usher and she were very close together. "I was just telling him how much I love him," Twana says. "He was sweating and he tried to wipe the sweat off. And I said, 'Don't worry about it. Just let the sweat drip.'

"He fulfilled every fantasy I could possibly have about being up on that stage with him," Twana says. "It's just a dream come true."
