Usher to Perform at 2024 Superbowl Halftime Show

Atlanta’s own Usher will be the featured artist at next year’s Superbowl Halftime Show.

The selection was announced by the NFL and the show’s sponsor, Apple. The artist confirmed his participation himself in a post on X (formerly Twitter.)

“It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list,” said the artist in a post from NFL insider Adam Schefter. “I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

Usher is one of Atlanta’s most successfull recording artists. He’s won eight Grammy Awards, two MTV video awards, nine Soul Train awards, and five BET awards. He’s scored five platnum albums, and nine #1 pop hits. He currently has a new single out, “Good Good” with Summer Walker and 21 Savage.

The Super Bowl Halftime show is a landmark performance venue for artists and one of the most awaited events in the championship game. Previous performers include Rhianna, The Weeknd and Justin Timberlake. Superstars Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift (both of whom are on worldwide tours) are unavailble to do the halftime show next year. The last time Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium hosted a Halftime Show as February 3, 2019, with Maroon 5.

The Halftime Show and Superbowl LVIII will be at Alegent Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, on February 11, 2024.
