Usher will perform in the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show roughly two months after the 45-year-old recording artist wrapped up his 100-show “My Way” Las Vegas residency.
It remains to be seen if any other notable names will join Usher on stage — the Super Bowl halftime show has a reputation for featuring multiple artists. When the Black Eyed Peas headlined the Super Bowl XLV halftime show in 2011, Usher took part in the performance.
Rhianna went against that norm last year, however, with a relatively low-key performance by Super Bowl standards that didn’t feature other recording artists. Despite that, Rihanna’s performance was the most-viewed Super Bowl halftime show of all time, according to Nielsen.
Usher, an eight-time Grammy Award winner, is scheduled to release a new LP, “Coming Home,” on the same day as the Super Bowl (Feb. 11). It will be the fifth Super Bowl halftime show overseen by Roc Nation after Jay-Z entered into an agreement with the NFL in 2019.
