Usher has been announced as the headliner of the 2024 Super Bowl halftime show. Super Bowl LVIII will take place on February 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada. The NFL, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, and Apple Music revealed news on Sunday via a series of promotional videos featuring Kim Kardashian, Deion Sanders, and Marshawn Lynch.
Usher, who will follow Rihanna’s 2023 Halftime Show, previously appeared as a special guest during Black Eyed Peas’ headlining performance at the Super Bowl in 2011. “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,” Usher said in a statement. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”
“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,” Jay-Z commented. “His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”
