Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled to take place on February 11 in Las Vegas, and Usher is set to rock the stage. This won’t be his first time performing at the big game, as he previously appeared as a halftime show guest in Super Bowl XLV, headlined by The Black Eyed Peas.
Usher is a nine-time Grammy winner and has had a string of Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles, including “Burn,” “Love in This Club,” “My Boo,” and “U Remind Me.” With his incredible talent and showmanship, he promises to deliver a performance like no other. Usher expressed his excitement, stating, “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before.”
Following Rihanna’s incredible halftime show in 2023, which marked her return to live performing after five years and included a career-spanning set of hit singles, Usher has big shoes to fill. Other recent halftime performers at the Super Bowl include Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar. The show is produced by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, which has been partnering with the NFL since 2019.
Jay-Z had nothing but praise for Usher, calling him the ultimate artist and showman. He mentioned Usher’s remarkable journey and how it has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. Jay-Z can’t wait to witness the magic that Usher will bring to the Super Bowl halftime show.
It’s worth noting that last year’s Super Bowl halftime performance by Rihanna was the first to be sponsored by Apple Music. The halftime show has become a highly anticipated event, and fans can expect another incredible performance from Usher.
So mark your calendars for February 11 and get ready to witness Usher’s electrifying performance at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. It’s going to be a show like no other, and Usher is ready to make history. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable event!
