Super Bowl 2024: who will headline the halftime show at Allegiant Stadium?

Super Bowl 2024 is upon us, and it features some of the most enticing talents of the entire league, including Patrick Mahomes, Brock Purdy, and Travis Kelce. While these athletes will bring the fireworks to the pitch during the game, the Super Bowl halftime show is also something the spectators look forward to during this mammoth clash.

Over the years, the halftime show has featured some brilliant artists such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Coldplay, and many more. In the fifteen minutes or so that they’re given to perform, the stadium is set alight with elaborate pyrotechnics and melodious tunes. Let’s find out who is the chosen artist to perform at this year’s Super Bowl.

Who will headline Super Bowl 2024 halftime show?

This year’s Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show will be headlined by none other than Usher. The American artist has wowed millions of fans worldwide with his sensational dancing skills and the tunes that he has produced have mesmerized audiences across the globe. In fact, some of his old songs are so catchy that they still remain on the top charts throughout the year.

Jay-Z’s Roc Nation has been the record label exclusively tied up with the league and chooses the Super Bowl halftime performer each year. When asked about what made them choose Usher for this year’s performance, Jay-Z said,

“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. His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”

According to CBS Sports, Usher made his views public on being able to headline such a huge event. “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,” said the 45-year-old. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

Who have headlined Super Bowl halftime shows over the last decade?

Over the years, we have seen a ton of sublime performers grace the field during the Super Bowl halftime show. However, the show wasn’t always this high-octane affair. There was once a time when the halftime shows were nothing more than college bands and Olympic athletes showing off their skills. However, all of that changed when the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, took to the Rose Bowl in 1993. And the rest is history.

That one performance has shaped the way halftime shows have worked. After Jackson, the NFL world has seen performers like Rihanna, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, Dr. Dre, and Bruno Mars, among others.
