No other performer has been announced yet
Usher is all set to be the lead performer at the halftime show for Super Bowl LVIII. The big game will happen at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada (outside of Las Vegas) on February 11, 2024. NFL made the announcement on Sunday. The venue is also home to the Las Vegas Raiders. It will mark the Grammy award winner’s second Super Bowl appearance. He performed alongside the Black Eyed Peas in 2011.
What Usher said about performing in 2024
Usher has released an official statement for his performance at the Super Bowl in 2024. “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,” he said, while also thanking his fans and everyone who made the opportunity possible.
Usher’s unmatched popularity in recent times
Usher has an unmatched popularity in recent times. He is currently busy with My Way The Las Vegas Residency shows, which are going houseful. The eight-time Grammy award winner started his music career in 1994 and became a popular name in the R&B as well as pop classic genre. Some of his hits include Nice & Slow, U Remind Me and Yeah!
It is unclear at this point whether there would be other performers at the Super Bowl Halftime. Jay-Z, who has collaborated with Usher on various occasions, however, was quoted calling Usher the ‘ultimate artist and showman.’ “Usher bares his soul,” he added, while stressing that he cannot wait to see the performer unfold his magic on stage. Usher and Jay-Z have collaborated on Hot Tottie, Anything and Best Thing.
Interestingly, the Super Bowl would take place a week after the 2024 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. Super Bowl will air live on CBS. It is still unclear where it would stream on OTT.
