It's time for Usher to shine in the NFL. The 44-year-old singer and songwriter will be the main act at the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show, which will be put on by Apple Music and happen on February 11, 2024, during the big game.
The R&B singer from Atlanta will perform at the Super Bowl for the first time in Las Vegas at the Allegiant Stadium. This is also the first time the Super Bowl has been held in that city. Usher follows Rihanna, who did the halftime show at the 2023 Super Bowl. According to Billboard,121.017 million people watched her show, making her the most-watched halftime act in history.
In recent years, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, The Weeknd, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, and Emme Muniz have also performed at the Super Bowl.
It's an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait tobring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.- Usher
The singer of "DJ Got Us Falling in Love" often has exotic dancing as part of his act, even at his Las Vegas engagement, where dancers have been known to "steal the show." A source said of the halftime show preparations:
Usher plans on having… pole dancers — dressed in a tasteful manner, of course as well as dancers on roller skates. He is definitely keeping in mind that his younger fans will be watching.- Source of the halftime show preparations
Jay-Z also talks about Usher:
Usher is the ultimate artist and showman. Ever since his debut at the age of 15, he’s been charting hisown unique course. Beyond his flawless singing and exceptional choreography, Usher bares his soul. His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.- Jay-Z
Before September 24, Usher hadn't talked much about the Super Bowl in 2024. In fact, Usher told Apple Music 1 in an interview that he didn't tell his own family about his halftime show gig.
It’s happening. It has happened, ladies and gentlemen!! It’s been a lot to keep secrets from my own kids at home. A very, very close knit group of people knew and were really excited about the entire thing. Obviously a legacy. But more than anything the fact that this is the most grand stage to ever play on, man.- Usher
Usher announced that his new album, Coming Home, will come out on Super Bowl Sunday. It will be his first record since 2016's Hard II Love, and it will include the summer single "Good Good," which features Summer Walker and 21 Savage.
The Super Bowl LVIII will be on CBS on February 11, 2024, at Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium. Usher has been based in Las Vegas for the past few years, which may not be a coincidence.
In July 2021, he started an engagement at the Coliseum. In the years that followed, he moved to Dolby Live and started "Usher: My Way." This new engagement has become a huge hit, and shows are planned until early December.
He released "Good Good" with Summer Walker and 21 Savage, "Dientes" with J Balvin and DJ Khaled, and "Boyfriend" by himself this year.
Usher is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor who is widely recognized for his contributions to the music industry. His full name is Usher Raymond IV, and he was born on October 14, 1978, in Dallas, Texas, USA. Usher rose to fame in the late 1990s with the release of his self-titled debut album, "Usher."
Throughout his career, Usher has achieved significant success and is known for his R&B and pop music. He has released several multi-platinum albums, including "My Way" (1997), "8701" (2001), "Confessions" (2004), and "Raymond v. Raymond" (2010). Some of his most popular songs include "Yeah!," "U Got It Bad," "Burn," and "OMG."
It looks like Usher is about to cross off another box on his "famous musician bingo" card. The R&B star has had several number-one songs, a small but memorable part in a movie that won an award, coaching jobs on different reality competition shows, his own line of fragrances, and, since July, a residency in Las Vegas. The singer of "My Way" can now add "headliner of the Super Bowl" to his list of accomplishments. The National Football League (NFL) announced on Sunday that he will be the halftime show star for Super Bowl LVIII in 2024.
