Usher To Showcase Roller-Skating Extravaganza In Super Bowl Halftime Spectacle


R&B sensation Usher has announced plans to incorporate a roller-skating sequence into his highly anticipated Super Bowl halftime performance in Las Vegas this Sunday. The singer intends to recreate a viral skating highlight from his recent Vegas residency, promising fans a captivating show that marks a “new beginning” in his illustrious 30-year career.

Usher, known for chart-topping hits and iconic dance routines, is set to become the first independent artist to headline the Super Bowl halftime show. Having parted ways with his previous record label, RCA, he will self-release his upcoming album, “Coming Home,” this weekend.

During an interview with Apple Music’s Nadeska Alexis, Usher remained secretive about his setlist but acknowledged the challenge of condensing his extensive career into a 13-minute performance. He emphasized being mindful of his musical legacy and iconic dance moves throughout the years. When pressed about potential guest performers, Usher hinted at collaborations with artists who contributed to “hit records” in his career, including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, and Lil’ Jon.

The Super Bowl halftime show at Allegiant Stadium will coincide with the clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Usher follows in the footsteps of previous performers like Rihanna and the star-studded lineup of Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and 50 Cent from the 2022 halftime show.

Usher’s history with the Super Bowl stage includes a memorable appearance in 2011 as a special guest with the Black Eyed Peas, where he executed a breathtaking leap over, landing in a split.

The Super Bowl’s musical lineup also includes country singer Reba McEntire performing the national anthem, Post Malone singing “America the Beautiful,” Andra Day concluding the pre-game concert with “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” and dance musician Tiesto serving as the first in-game DJ in Super Bowl history.

Usher’s musical journey began in church at the age of nine, leading to a successful career that includes eight Grammy Awards and over 80 million records sold worldwide. Despite ups and downs, his reputation as a dynamic live performer remains intact, culminating in a Las Vegas residency with 100 sold-out shows, culminating in his Super Bowl halftime spectacle.
