Usher, known for his chart-topping classics like "U Got It Bad," "My Boo," "Yeah!," and "OMG," expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "It's an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list.

Usher's extensive catalog of hits, featuring collaborations with the likes of Lil Jon, Ludacris, Alicia Keys, and will.i.am., fuels anticipation that his Super Bowl set may feature some surprise appearances.
Since 2019, the Super Bowl halftime show has been produced by Roc Nation, the entertainment powerhouse founded by the legendary New York rapper-mogul, Jay-Z. This partnership has given rise to unforgettable performances, including Shakira and Jennifer Lopez's dynamic show, The Weeknd's mesmerizing act, and a historic hip-hop showcase featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. In 2022, Rihanna delivered a career-spanning performance that left the world talking.
Adding to the spectacle, Apple Music has taken the spotlight as the event's main sponsor since last year, after reportedly securing the privilege with a whopping $50 million deal, dethroning Pepsi. The Super Bowl halftime performance slot remains one of the most sought-after opportunities in the industry, given that the Super Bowl stands as the most-watched television broadcast in the United States.
In 2022, Nielsen estimates revealed that more than 113 million viewers tuned in to watch the Super Bowl, where the Kansas City Chiefs faced off against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, it was Rihanna who truly stole the show that year. The global superstar made her highly anticipated return to the stage during halftime and left an indelible mark on the hearts of viewers by announcing her second pregnancy, dominating conversations for weeks to come.
The anticipation for Usher's upcoming performance at the Super Bowl halftime show is palpable, promising an unforgettable night filled with music, surprises, and unparalleled entertainment.
