Super Bowl LVIII (58) will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 11.
The “Big Game” will pit the winners of the two NFL conferences – San Francisco (NFC) and AFC champion Kansas City – against each other for the right to become world champions themselves.
Super Bowl Sunday is as much about the spectacle as it is the game, with the world-famous halftime performance just as popular as the sporting competition.
Anyone has performed at halftime over the years, including Prince, Michael Jackson, Dianna Ross and Paul McCartney.
This year, it will be Usher’s turn, who will take to the iconic stage for a 13-minute performance.
Has Usher ever performed at the Super Bowl halftime show?
Usher has never headlined the Super Bowl halftime show before, so this year will be a first for the R&B singer.
However, the Grammy winner has appeared at the Super Bowl before, joining the Black Eyed Peas on stage in 2011 during their headlining performance for about two minutes.
The performance punctuated Super Bowl XLV between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, which Green Bay won 31-25.
Usher performed his hit song “OMG,” alongside Peas frontman William.i.am after descending from the rafters of Cowboys Stadium in an all-white outfit and sunglasses.
Usher finished the song by jumping over Will.i.am on a flight of stairs and landing in the splits.
It remains to be seen whether it is still as flexible thirteen years later.
The musician will headline the halftime festivities in Vegas on the same day he is scheduled to release his ninth studio album, “Coming Home.”
At this time, it is unclear whether he will be joined by other prominent artists for his performance.
Speaking about his upcoming performance in 2024, Usher said: “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally be able to cross a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list.
“I can’t wait to give the world a show unlike anything they’ve seen before.
“Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity possible. I will see you very soon.”
