Surprise! Usher has been officially announced as the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show performer. The R&B singer will hit the main stage on 11 February 2024, at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas—the first time the Super Bowl is being held in the city.
Usher is an appropriate choice for the covetable performance slot, given he has almost three decades of music under his belt—including megahits such as “My Boo,” “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love,” and, of course, the forever banger “Yeah!” Since taking up residency in Las Vegas earlier this year, he’s drawn enthusiastic fans to the Nevada desert in droves, including the likes of Kim Kardashian and Zendaya.
Every year, the Super Bowl Halftime Show plays host to some of music’s biggest acts. Last February, Rihanna stole the show when she revealed she was pregnant (in a red Loewe jumpsuit, no less). Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, and Beyoncé are among the other high-profile names to have graced the stage.
Considering the Halftime Show always delivers memorable performance attire, we simply can’t wait to see what Usher will wear. If the stellar looks he wore to Paris Fashion Week earlier this year are any indication, then he’s bound to shine.
