Sitting down ahead of the big game, the star said that the show would be a ‘crescendo’ making a ‘new beginning’ in his 30-year-career.
Yet, USHER will be the first independent artist to ever take the stage as he just left his previous record label, RCA. The star is set to release his latest album Coming Home this weekend.
Speaking with Apple Music’s very own Nadeska Alexis, the “Yeah!” singer avoided several questions about what people can expect for the show.
“It definitely has been a challenge to squeeze 30 years in to 13 minutes,” Usher said, eyes hidden behind dark sunglasses.
USHER also added he had been “very mindful of my past” and the “songs I feel people know me for”, as well as iconic dance routines from his career.
When asked about who indeed would be performing on stage with him, the singer noted there would be those who were “on songs that became hit records.”
USHER will play at the Allegiant Stadium, as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers.
He follows Rihanna, who performed the 2023 half-time show while pregnant, and 2022’s all-star team of Dr Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and 50 Cent.
USHER has previously been on the Super Bowl stage in the past as a special guest for the Black Eyed Peas in 2011. The star was seeing taking one large leap over will.i.am and even landing splits.
Country singer Reba McEntire will perform America’s national anthem while Post Malone will sing “America the Beautiful.”Andra Day will conclude the pre-game concert with “Lift Every Voice” and Sing, often called the black national anthem. While dance musician Tiesto will be the Super Bowl’s first-ever in-game DJ for the event.
