Usher brings multiple artists to perform with him at Super Bowl LVIII

For Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, Nev., Usher was the halftime show superstar.

The performer has been making music since 1994, with 10 albums and more than 80 singles. However, he has not been on tour since 2014 and 2015 for “The UR Experience” tour or dropped an album since 2018, so having him perform at the Super Bowl was a shock to a lot of people.

With his big performance coming up, Usher decided to drop a new album a couple days before the show. The album was titled “COMING HOME” and has features from artists, such as H.E.R., Latto, Summer Walker and more.

During the big show, Usher brought out many different artists for his performance, but before doing so, he had a strong opening set, giving a slight nod to superstar Michael Jackson with his outfit choice and dance moves.

The first person who Usher brought on stage was singer Alicia Keys, who has been making the same style of music as Usher has, including some duets together. Keys’s all-red outfit matched her stunning piano during the halftime performance. He then brought out other artists, including H.E.R., Lil Jon, Ludacris, Will.i.am. and Jermaine Dupri, all of which he had collaborated with in the past.

While some fans were upset that Usher did not add more of their favorite songs or bring out some of their other favorite artists, it was still a very cool performance to watch.

Even though it may not rank as one of the top Super Bowl halftime show performances in my opinion, it was still entertaining to watch and even more exciting to see Usher have fun and perform how he wanted to.
