Usher’s dream of headlining the Super Bowl halftime show finally came true on Sunday night, and he didn’t do it all alone. The R&B superstar delivered a show to remember during the Big Game, and he was joined by several special guests, including Alicia Keys.
The NFL bosses announced that Usher would be headlining the halftime show back in September, and he couldn’t wait to cross this dream off of his bucket list. He delivered another nostalgic halftime show performance, following in the footsteps of Rihanna, and hip-hop stars Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
Usher’s performance started off amazing, with “My Way” serving as an intro, and only got better from that point on. The crowd went wild once Alicia Keys joined him on stage, with amazing new takes of “If I Ain’t Got You” and “My Boo”.
Keys wasn’t the only special guest joining Usher on Sunday night, and she was soon followed H.E.R. and will.i.am. Lil Jon and Ludacris were there for the grand finale and helped Usher hypnotize the crowd with the epic rendition of his smash hit “Yeah!”
Usher headlined Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada on February 11, which saw the Kansas City Chiefs win their second consecutive Super Bowl title.
