SUPER BOWL LVIII
Usher to headline the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime show in Las Vegas
It was Kim Kardashian who “gave” the good news to the “Confessions” singer, who is a huge NFL and Atlanta Falcons fan.
There are still a few months to go until Super Bowl LVIII, but Apple Music have already announced that R&B star Usher will be headlining the traditional Super Bowl Halftime show in Las Vegas next February (Sunday 11 February, to be precise).
Kim Kardashian makes Usher’s Super Bowl dream come true
The “Yeah!” singer appeared in a skit on Apple Music’s X (formerly Twitter) account in which Kim Kardashian “calls him up” to deliver the good news.
“You’re doing the Super Bowl. You’re playing the Apple Music Halftime show in Vegas”, Kardashian tells the singer, whose reaction comes in the form of clips from the start of his music video for Confessions Part II. “Quit playing on me, man”.

Performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show will be a dream come true for Usher, who is known to be a huge NFL fan and was in attendance at Super Bowl LI in 2017 as his team, Atlanta Falcons, threw away a big lead against Tom Brady’s New England Patriots, who completed one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the showpiece game.
“An honour of a lifetime”
“It’s an honour 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 told CBS Sports. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”
Meanwhile, Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music, Apple TV +, Sports, and Beats, stated, “The Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show is one of the most highly anticipated music events of the year and we’re excited to bring this legendary show to fans all over the world in Spatial Audio, along with tons of exclusive videos, interviews, playlists and so much more across Apple Music.”
