Super Bowl 2024 Halftime Show preview

Ready to watch the Super Bowl Halftime Show? R&B royalty Usher is set to take Sin City by storm on Super Bowl LVIII Sunday with a headline show that will make you say... Yeah! Superstar DJ was due to warm up the crowd but has pulled Tiesto and will be replaced by Kascade.

With walls covered in platinum records and a mantelpiece heaving with awards, Usher Raymond is finally ready to take his rite of passage and perform the most watched musical event of the year. The 45-year-old Texan certainly still has the tunes, moves and charisma to get Chiefs and 49ers fans in the arena moving, together with around 200 million viewers around the world. No pressure, then.

As well as the earworm Yeah!, Usher has nine albums and 30 years' worth of material to choose from for a set that will surely include the likes of Burn, OMG, U Got It Bad and My Boo. That also leaves the door open for plenty of surprise guest appearances, with Usher being a serial collaborator over the last three decades.

With CBS confirming Super Bowl LVIII is to air in 4K (albeit upscaled), prepare yourself for 15 minutes of entertainment from the eight-time Grammy Award winning superstar. Fans in the stadium will be treated to audio through the Allegiant's JBL VLA601H line array system consisting of 14, 10-box arrays, with six middle arrays.

Super Bowl 58 is scheduled to kick off at 11.30pm GMT / 6.30pm ET today, Sunday, 11th February 2024 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, with Usher likely to start shimmying roughly 90 minutes later. Here's how to watch the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show free online...

Super Bowl Halftime Show FAQs

Who is performing in the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show?

Usher was announced as the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show headliner on 24th September 2023.

With a multitude of platinum-selling records, he has sold over 43 million records worldwide. He is probably best known for songs such as Yeah!, Burn, U Got It Bad and his first top-10 single You Make Me Wanna...

The 45-year-old singer from Dallas, Texas released his first album back in 1994, which is why Apple Music is marketing this year's Halftime Show as "30 years in the making".

Over the course of his three decades in the business, Usher has recorded nine number-one singles, and won eight Grammy Awards and 18 Billboard Music Awards.

What is Usher's biggest hit?

Usher's 2004 single Yeah! is the musician's biggest hit, having spent 12 weeks at the top of the US Billboard Charts and going platinum in many countries around the world.

Featuring rappers Lil Jon (who also produced the record) and Ludacris, the song won a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

How much will Usher get paid for the Halftime Show?

It's customary that the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer isn't paid, and Usher will be no exception.

But with a global TV audiences approaching 200 million, halftime headliners can expect a huge uplift in album sales and music streaming revenue.

Who is singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl 2024?

Three-time Grammy Award winning country singer Reba McEntire is performing the national anthem ahead of Super Bowl LVIII.

The 68-year-old is coming up to 50 years as a professional performer and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011.

Chris Stapleton, another country singer, performed The Star Spangled Banner last year. 

Who was last year's Super Bowl Halftime Show?

Rihanna performed last year's Halftime Show at Super Bowl LVII.

Without any guest appearances, she performed the 13-minute, 11-song setlist alone and belted out hits including We Found Love, Rude Boy, and Umbrella, before closing the show with Diamonds.

Rihanna's performance was something of a volte face for the Barbadian, who had previously announced she would never perform in the coveted Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. The involvement of Tidal co-owner Jay-Z's Roc Nation label in putting together Super Bowl halftime shows since 2020 has seemingly persuaded her to come back to the table.

The performance bagged two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special and Outstanding Production Design for a Variety Special.

What is the most watched Halftime Show ever?

2023's Halftime Show performed by Rihanna was the most watched in Super Bowl history with an 118.7 million average audience. You can listen to the full list via Apple Music

She broke the record previously set by Katy Perry at Super Bowl 49's Halftime Show in 2015. An average US TV audience of 118.5 million people tuned in to see her perform Roar, Dark Horse and I Kissed a Girl with special guests Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott. The show averaged a higher TV audience than the game itself!

It has also amassed 208 million views (and counting) on YouTube...
