Usher will headline the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show presented by Apple Music set to take place on February 11th, 2024.
The NFL, Apple, and Roc Nation confirmed the news on Sunday (24/09/23). Usher,44, will take the stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the first time the big game will take place in that city.
Their announcement came in the form of a video featuring the singer and 42-year-old reality star Kim Kardashian, which showed her calling him to tell him the news while he was working on music in the studio.
Like every other artist who performs at the Super Bowl, Usher will not be paid for it as the NFL doesn’t pay any musicians for their halftime show though they do get money for travel and all expenses associated with putting their show together.
Next year will mark Usher’s second time performing at the Super Bowl as in 2011, the eight-time Grammy Award winner was a guest during the Black Eyed Peas’ Super Bowl XLV halftime show.
Usher’s appearance will follow Rihanna’s now-iconic Super Bowl 2023 halftime show, in which she shocked fans by announcing her second pregnancy with A$AP Rocky.
