Usher Headlines Super Bowl 2024 Halftime Show: A Career Milestone
The anticipation for the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show is building, and music fans are in for a treat. Usher, the Grammy-winning R&B sensation, has been confirmed as the headliner for the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, 2024. Usher expressed his excitement, calling it the “honor of a lifetime.”
Usher stated in a statement that it was an incredible pleasure to cross performing at a Super Bowl off his bucket list.
I’m eager to provide the world with a performance unlike anything they’ve ever seen from me.
Usher’s career catapulted into superstardom with his iconic album “Confessions,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year.
The album sold over 10 million units in the U.S. and earned him eight Grammy nominations, with three wins. Hits like “Yeah!” featuring Ludacris and Lil Jon, “Burn,” and “Confessions Part II” solidified his status as an R&B legend.
Currently, Usher is headlining his “Usher: My Way” residency in Las Vegas, receiving rave reviews and selling out shows.
He’s also set to perform an eight-night series in Paris.
Roc Nation founder Jay-Z, a collaborator on the halftime show, praised Usher, saying, “Usher is the ultimate artist and showman.
He’s been forging his own distinctive road since his debut at the age of 15.”
The Super Bowl halftime show has a history of memorable performances, and Usher’s addition to this legacy is highly anticipated.
Last year, Rihanna’s performance drew over 121 million viewers, making it one of the most-watched halftime shows.
Seth Dudowsky, the NFL’s head of music, expressed excitement about Usher headlining the show, stating, “Usher is an icon whose music has left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape throughout his career.”
As fans eagerly await the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show, one thing is clear: Usher is set to deliver a performance that will be remembered for years to come.
