Usher set the stage on fire with a dynamic halftime show at the Super Bowl on Sunday, treating fans to a captivating performance that included surprise appearances by some of his most iconic collaborators.
The R&B sensation kicked off the show with Alicia Keys, who joined him at a red piano for a heartfelt rendition of their 2004 duet "My Boo." The energy soared as guitar virtuoso H.E.R. took the stage, delivering a scintillating solo while Usher danced alongside her.
But the surprises didn't end there. Will.i.am, Lil Jon, and Ludacris joined Usher to close out the show with an electrifying rendition of his smash hit "Yeah!" Despite the star-studded lineup, Usher remained the focal point, wowing the crowd with his vocals, dance moves, and even a bit of roller skating on the glowing stage.
Addressing the appreciative audience gathered near the Las Vegas Strip, Usher expressed his love and gratitude before resuming his electrifying performance. The halftime show, a highly anticipated spectacle watched by millions worldwide, is produced by Jay-Z's Roc Nation label and sponsored by Apple Music.
Usher Raymond IV, a music industry icon with over 80 million records sold worldwide and eight Grammy awards to his name, showcased his unparalleled talent and stage presence. His latest album, "Coming Home," released just two days prior to the Super Bowl, further solidifies his status as a music legend.
Having recently concluded a successful Las Vegas residency, where he brought Atlanta culture to the strip, Usher is now gearing up for a North American tour set to kick off in August.
The star-studded halftime show attracted a slew of music industry heavyweights, including Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift, who was in attendance to support her boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
As halftime festivities came to a close, the San Francisco 49ers held a 10-3 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs, setting the stage for an electrifying second half in the NFL's title game.
