This season’s Super Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, February 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He showed up during the 2011 Super Bowl alongside the Black Eyed Peas and performed “OMG.” There are likely to be either surprise guests or more acts announced.

Usher follows Rihanna, who performed at the halftime show last year. 2022’s Super Bowl halftime show was star-studded as Eminem, Dr. Dre. Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige all took the stage. The Weeknd was the headliner in 2021.
