Seeing how they had clearly consorted,
Found his seat at the table.
What’s more, he was able
To do it and not be escorted.
Am I to translate that as being on the shore?
Yes. My way of saying I didn’t need to be Ushered in. ;)

Usher he said so
She just shook her head
And sadly pronounced him abed

There really aren't all that many one-named singers, so unless you're a total google-phobe, you should google it and look through the list. That way you'll be likely to recognize it when you solve.
Google-phobe (and clue-search-phobe): that'd be me.
As soon as I see singer (or the like), I just give a quick glance and move on.
I used to do the google thing just to prove to myself that I could solve the puzzle despite the handicap, but I guess I've moved past that.
(Yes , just now looking back at the posts...that's how far I had moved past it :P)
