THE BIGGEST stage in entertainment in the shortest amount of time—that’s the coveted Super Bowl Halftime show that every artist would love a chance to perform at. For next year’s Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, Grammy award-winning artist Usher will take centre stage to deliver his most electrifying performance yet.

“Those 13 minutes mean everything,” Usher told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “It’s been on my bucket list for a long time. This was destined to happen.”

Jay-Z, whose sport and entertainment agency ‘Roc Nation’ has been managing the Super Bowl’s half-time shows since 2019, said that Usher is the ultimate artist and showman, made for stages like the Super Bowl.

“Ever since his debut at the age of 15, he’s been charting his own unique course. Beyond his flawless singing and exceptional choreography, Usher bares his soul,” said JAY-Z via a statement. “His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”

Usher told Lowe the moment the news was delivered to him that he would be performing at the Super Bowl.

“When I got this call … he said ‘it’s time, it’s magic time. It’s time for you to have that moment.'”
