Usher Delivers All the Hits During His Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Usher made us all feel like we stepped back to the 2000s with his Super Bowl LVIII halftime performance. The singer-songwriter put on quite an impressive set full of his biggest hits and, of course, his iconic dance moves. He even delivered a number on roller skates.

He floated from one smash to another, including:

  • “Caught Up”

  • “You Don’t Have to Call”

  • “Spotlight”

  • “Love in This Club”

  • “My Boo” featuring Alicia Keys (who started with “If I Ain’t Got You”)

  • “Confessions”

  • “Nice & Slow”

  • “Burn”

  • “You Got It Bad” (featuring H.E.R. on guitar)

  • “Bad Girl”

  • “OMG” (featuring Will.I.Am)

  • “Yeah” (featuring Lil’ Jon, who started with a snippet of “Turn Down for What” and Ludacris)

Watch clips of the set below:

For his performance of his smash song “Yeah!,” Usher brought out Ludacris and Lil Jon, who are featured artists on the track.

“I would be a fool to not play ‘Yeah!' let's just start there,” he told Entertainment Tonight on February 8. “It would be foolish to make it all the way to Las Vegas, Jon is here, Luda’s here and not play ‘Yeah!’”

In Usher’s official pre-show interview with Apple Music, he talked about how difficult it was choosing which songs from his discography would make it into his set list.

“I gotta do it in 13 minutes. That makes it a bit difficult,” he admitted, adding, “It’s definitely been a challenge to squeeze 30 years into 13 minutes.”

“I was very mindful of my past, celebrating my present—which is here in Las Vegas—and thinking about where we're headed in the future. That was really the idea,” Usher shared, explaining his process.
