As Usher gears up for his Super Bowl spotlight, here’s what we want to see during his highly anticipated debut halftime performance
When we talk about setting the stage on fire, Usher is an artist who needs no introduction. In an announcement that gained mixed reactions, Apple Music has officially confirmed the American singer and songwriter as the headliner for the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show at Allegiant Stadium—a monumental touchdown moment for both the R&B icon and the Sin City, marking the very first Super Bowl showdown on the Vegas strip.
From hit after hit to dance moves that defy gravity, the multi-awarded artist has been lighting up the entertainment scene for more than two decades. With his Super Bowl debut just around the corner, here are five things we’re expecting to witness during Usher’s performance.
While his musical prowess has impressed us for years, it’s his dance abilities that have truly set him apart. Whether it’s the silky-smooth moves in “U Got It Bad” or the electrifying dance sequences from “Yeah!,” all eyes are fixed on the artist’s upcoming show, expecting nothing less than breathtaking choreography that defines his artistry.
The eight-time Grammy winner’s impressive music library, boasting hits such as “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love,” “My Boo,” and “OMG,” is a clear goldmine of timeless tunes. It’s incredible to think that in less than a year, we’ll be rocking out with fans and crooning to these all-time favorites at the Super Bowl.
Halftime shows have gained quite the reputation for their exciting and star-studded moments. Will the 44-year-old singer surprise us with special appearances by Lil Jon, Ludacris, or even Jay-Z? We’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed for some epic collaborations!
Scoring big with new music
Alongside his headline performance, the R&B legend dropped some major news that he will also release his long-awaited album, Coming Home, on the same day as his Super Bowl gig on February 11, 2024. This album is his first since 2016, and it will also feature his chart-topper from 2023, “Good Good.”
Game day looks
Saving the best for last, we cannot wait to witness Usher’s fashion game take center stage in his performance. A man with a style that turns heads, whether he’s performing or not, we’re in for some unforgettable wardrobe moments that will elevate his performance to legendary status.
