Grammy award winner Usher will headline the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the NFL announced in a video shared on Sunday (September 24).
The video includes the introduction from the 'Confessions Part 2' music video with a spliced in clip of Kim Kardashian telling Usher that he'll be performing at the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. Usher also shared a graphic of himself on his X account confirming his participation. Usher had previously appeared as a guest when the Black Eyed Peas headlined the Super Bowl XLV halftime show in 2011.
"It's an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list," Usher said in a statement obtained by ESPN. "I can't wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they've seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I'll see you real soon."
The halftime show will air live during CBS' broadcast of Super Bowl LVIII on February 14. Usher's upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show announcement coincided with news that he'll be releasing his ninth studio album, Coming Home, which will be released on the same day as Super Bowl LVIII.
