The King of R&B took the stage at Super Bowl 2024 and left everything on the Allegiant Stadium field. Usher took the Super Bowl stage as the 2024 halftime performer for a phenomenal, career-defining, star-studded performance, and was joined by Alicia Keys, Jermaine Dupri, H.E.R., will.i.am, Lil Jon, and Ludacris.

Usher brought the world to the A, lighting up the Apple Music Halftime Show with his greatest hits, including “OMG,” “Love in this Club,” “U Got It Bad,” “Bad Girl,” “Superstar,” “Caught Up," “U Don't Have to Call,” “My Boo” with Alicia Keys, “Burn,” “Confessions Part II,” “Nice & Slow,” and “Yeah!” with Lil Jon.

In a huge departure from Rihanna's minimalist and monochrome halftime show stage last year, Usher swagged out the Super Bowl in true Atlanta style, complete with pole dancers and roller skaters. Usher started out his set wearing an all-white bejeweled outfit, then briefly went shirtless while performing “U Got It Bad,” then did another costume change into a blue rhinestone-laden outfit and skates.

Fans speculated for days on end who would join Usher onstage at halftime, naming a handful of stars from the singer's long list of collaborators, even his former protégé Justin Bieber. Turns out Usher thinks the more the merrier. The superstar (no pun intended) ultimately brought out six surprise guests: Alicia Keys, Jermaine Dupri, H.E.R., will.i.am, Lil Jon (who performed “Turn Down for What” from the crowd) and Ludacris.

Usher ended his performance with a tribute to Atlanta: everyone onstage doing the A-town Stomp while his marching band spelled out his name across the field.

This year's Super Bowl (aka Super Bowl LVIII) took place on Sunday, February 11, 2024. The highly anticipated showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers brought out a slew of celebrities in the stands, including stars like Issa Rae, Bad Bunny, the KarJenners, Quavo, Lil Baby, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, Blue Ivy Carter and her dad and little sister, Justin and Hailey Bieber, Paul McCartney, Russell Wilson and Ciara, Martha Stewart, Paul Rudd, and Jimmy Kimmel.

One famous football fan in particular had all eyes, and of course, the Jumbotron, on her — Taylor Swift brought out all her friends to cheer on her tight end boyfriend Travis Kelce in the VIP box, including Lana Del Rey, Blake Lively, Ice Spice and her producer partner RIOT. (Who else can't wait to see the suite shots of Taylor and Ice grooving to “OMG”? We all know that girl loves to dance.)
