Usher, 44, is set to be the headline performer at the halftime show for Super Bowl LVIII in February 2024. The exciting news was announced by the NFL, Roc Nation and Apple Music on Sunday. The big game will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, NV, which is just outside of Las Vegas and home to the Las Vegas Raiders.

“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,” Usher said in a statement, per The Hollywood Reporter. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

Several Instagram videos were released to announce and promote Usher’s big upcoming appearance and they featured some of Hollywood and the NFL’s biggest stars, including Kim Kardashian, Odell Beckham Jr., Deion Sanders, and Marshawn Lynch. In each one, the familiar faces were relaying the news to Usher that he would be the halftime performer as he sat in a studio and acted surprised and thrilled.

The news of Usher’s upcoming massive performance comes as he’s been playing to sold out crowds during his My Way The Las Vegas Residency shows. The performances have been getting rave reviews and has featured many celebrity guests in the audience, including Kim and actress Keke Palmer. He’s just one of many artists who have found success with a Las Vegas residency. One other recent artist has been Adele, who has also been getting rave reviews.

Usher being chosen as the Super Bowl’s next halftime performer doesn’t come as too much of a surprise considering his incredible and impressive music career. He is the winner of eight Grammy Awards and has sold 80 million albums worldwide, since his debut on the music scene as a teenager in 1994. Some of his several number one hits include “Nice & Slow,” “Yeah!,” and “U Remind Me.” He is the only Super Bowl halftime show performer for 2024 that has been announced at this time. It’s unclear if others will be added to the roster.
