Las Vegas, NV — The stage is set, and Usher is poised to make history at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. The NFL recently confirmed the multi-talented artist as the headline act for the halftime show, generating immense excitement among fans and music enthusiasts worldwide.
In an official tweet, the NFL shared promo videos featuring Kim Kardashian and the legendary player-turned-coach, Deion Sanders, confirming the news alongside Usher. Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled to take place on February 11, and anticipation is already building for what promises to be an unforgettable performance.
Usher, an eight-time Grammy winner and celebrated artist, had previously graced the Super Bowl halftime stage as a guest during Super Bowl XLV, a show headlined by The Black Eyed Peas. Known for chart-topping hits such as Burn, Love in This Club, My Boo, and U Remind Me, Usher's return to the Super Bowl stage is highly anticipated.
In a widely syndicated statement, Usher expressed his excitement: "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. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I'll see you real soon."
Usher follows in the footsteps of Rihanna, who headlined the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show, marking her return to live performing after a five-year hiatus. Rihanna's performance featured a career-spanning set of hit singles and a surprise pregnancy announcement.
Super Bowl LVIII continues the trend of star-studded halftime shows, with previous years featuring legendary artists like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar.
Jay-Z's Roc Nation, which partnered with the NFL in 2019, is producing the halftime show. Jay-Z himself expressed excitement for Usher's performance, stating, "Usher is the ultimate artist and showman. Ever since his debut at the age of 15, he's been charting his own 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."
Last year's Super Bowl halftime performance by Rihanna was notable as the first to be sponsored by Apple Music, setting the stage for spectacular musical moments at one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
