Usher has given us many amazing performances over the years, and he’s now gearing up for his greatest one yet. The R&B star will be in charge of headlining the halftime show at the Super Bowl LVIII, taking place in Las Vegas this February.

Usher confirmed the news by starring in a series of silly promotional videos that show him skeptically reacting after receiving a call about his headlining Super Bowl spot from several celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Deion Sanders, Marshawn Lynch, and Odell Beckham Jr.

Seth Dudowsky, the NFL head of music, confirmed Usher’s involvement and said they’re looking forward to hosting another halftime show for the history books alongside Roc Nation and Apple Music.

“Usher is an icon whose music has left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape throughout his career, we couldn’t be more excited to have him headline this year’s Apple Music Super Bowl halftime show,” said Dudowsky in a statement.

Usher pretty much manifested his headlining Super Bowl slot after telling Access Hollywood’s Scott Evans it would be a dream come true to perform at the halftime show earlier this year. He’ll take the Super Bowl stage at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 11, 2024, and his halftime show performance will coincide with the release of his upcoming new album Coming Home.
