Usher to perform at 2024 Super Bowl halftime show in Las Vegas

Grammy-winning artist Usher has been announced as the headliner for the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show in Las Vegas. The NFL, Apple Music, and Roc Nation made the announcement on Sunday, revealing that Usher will be performing at Allegiant Stadium on February 11. The singer expressed his excitement about the opportunity, stating that it is an honor to perform on the NFL's biggest stage and that he plans to deliver a show unlike anything he has done before.

Usher rose to fame with his album "Confessions," which sold over 10 million units in the US and earned him eight Grammy nominations. Although he didn't win the album of the year award, the album produced several number one hits, including "Yeah!" featuring Ludacris and Lil Jon, "Burn," and "Confessions Part II." Usher's residency in Las Vegas, titled "Usher: My Way," has received rave reviews and sold-out shows.

In addition to his music career, Usher has also appeared in films such as "Hustlers" and "Light It Up" and served as a coach on NBC's "The Voice." Roc Nation founder Jay-Z praised Usher as the ultimate artist and showman, highlighting his unique journey and remarkable talent.

The halftime show will be co-executive produced by Roc Nation and Emmy-winning producer Jesse Collins, with Hamish Hamilton returning as the director. This collaboration between the NFL, Apple Music, and Roc Nation follows the successful halftime show featuring Rihanna last year.

Apple's Vice President of Apple Music, Apple TV+, Sports, and Beats, Oliver Schusser, expressed pride in the upcoming halftime show, stating that they are looking forward to another incredible performance from one of the world's greatest performers.

Usher will be joining a long list of iconic musicians who have performed during Super Bowl halftime shows, including Beyoncé, Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Katy Perry. NFL's Head of Music, Seth Dudowsky, described Usher as an icon who has made a significant impact on the cultural landscape throughout his career.
