While the NFL season is still only in its third week, fans already know who will play at the 2024 Super Bowl: Usher. The R&B singer, songwriter, and dancer will take the stage for a halftime show during Super Bowl LVIII on February 11th, 2024 at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium.

“It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before,” Usher said in a statement. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

The NFL, Apple Music, and Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation which began producing the halftime show in 2020 announced the performance on Sunday. Las Vegas’ first time hosting Super Sunday will feature a familiar face, as Usher has been a fixture of Sin City for the past few years. He launched a residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace back in July 2021, moving the following year to Dolby Live to stage Usher: My Way. The well-received ongoing residency is scheduled to run through early December.

“Usher is the ultimate artist and showman. 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,” Jay-Z added. “His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”

Along with the announcement, the NFL shared a video of Usher getting called up to the big leagues by Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. As he lobbies for a spot as a dancer in Usher’s show, Beckam reminds the singer, “Now you know this isn’t my first Super Bowl”. Fans of the Cincinnati Bengals whom Beckham beat with the Ravens in the 2021 Super Bowl likely needed no reminder.
