Usher Shines Bright in 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show Spectacle


As the halftime show spectacle unfolded at the 2024 Super Bowl in Las Vegas, the eyes of millions were fixed not only on the game’s scoreboard but also on the electrifying performance of one of pop’s most iconic figures — Usher.

Draped in a dazzling white diamond-studded ensemble, Usher took center stage for a captivating homage to Las Vegas, Black music history, and his roots in Atlanta. With a fusion of flappers, Cirque du Soleil-inspired dancers, and roller skaters, the “Burn” singer delivered a show-stopping performance that spanned his illustrious career. From the field to an elevated stage, accompanied by a marching band spelling out his name, Usher commanded attention with every move in Allegiant Stadium.

Kicking off with the infectious energy of “Caught Up,” Usher treated fans to a journey through his hits, including crowd favorites like “Nice & Slow,” “U Don’t Have to Call,” and “Love In This Club.” Yet, what truly elevated the performance were the surprise guest appearances. As speculation had hinted, Grammy-winner Alicia Keys graced the stage in a stunning rhinestone-encrusted bodysuit, joining Usher for a soulful rendition of “My Boo,” their chart-topping collaboration from 2004.

Further enhancing the spectacle were appearances by Oscar-winning artist H.E.R., who delivered a mesmerizing guitar solo during “U Got It Bad” before seamlessly transitioning into “Bad Girl,” and Ludacris, who injected his signature energy into the performance with his iconic verse from “Yeah!” Amidst the spectacle, Usher effortlessly showcased his vocal prowess, precise choreography, and undeniable charisma, leaving the audience spellbound.

Following the monumental success of his Las Vegas residency, which grossed nearly $96 million, Usher’s halftime performance served as a testament to his enduring legacy and star power. With multiple outfit changes, seamless transitions, and a seamless blend of hits, Usher proved once again why he reigns as one of R&B’s most celebrated figures.

As the second artist to headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show in the Apple Music era, Usher delivered a performance that not only thrilled fans but also underscored his monumental achievements. With an illustrious career boasting nine Hot 100 No. 1 hits, including the diamond-certified “Confessions,” Usher left an indelible mark on the Super Bowl stage.

Closing with the promise of his upcoming Past Present Future tour, set to kick off in August, Usher’s performance was a testament to his enduring impact on music and entertainment. With a setlist that spanned his illustrious career, Usher proved that he is indeed the King of R&B.
