From one glove to bare abs to roller skates, the star's style took center stage at the halftime show
Usher brought his signature style to the 2024 Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas —and you bet it made us say: “Yeah!”
After weeks of anticipation, the music icon, 45, nailed his halftime show performance, during which he sang hit after hit including “My Boo,” “Confessions” and “Yeah!”
The singer —who brought out H.E.R, Alicia Keys, Will I Am, Lil Jon and Ludacris (the latter two he previously said he’d be “a fool” not to have join him onstage) for his performance, wore Dolce & Gabbana.
His first outfit was all cream and featured a coat over a cropped jacket with a brooch, both of which he took off to reveal a bedazzled top. Soon after, Usher ditched that top too and briefly bared his abs before he stepped offstage for an outfit change. For this look Usher also wore matching gloves, one of which he took off in an apparent nod to Michael Jackson.
Usher then emerged in a shimmering blue-and-black look — and roller skates — for the second half of his electrifying set.
Usher revealed little about his performance in the month leading up —but did emphasize that he wanted to pay tribute to Black art -
ists on football’s biggest night.
The star said he wanted R&B to "take the main stage."
“Not just R&B music, but R&B performance, R&B connection, R&B spirit," he said.
The artist admitted that it was “difficult” trying to fit 30-years’ worth of hits into a 13-minute set. But in anticipation of the event he’d been getting “notes” from everyone from Katy Perry to his children.
No matter which team wins the Super Bowl, the Kansas City Chiefs or the San Francisco 49ers, by all accounts Usher had the best week ever. Ahead of his album drop, he announced that he’s embarking on a North American tour beginning in August.
