R&B singer Usher, already a busy man with his Las Vegas residency was recently announced as the headliner of the upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2024. The entertainer also stated that he has plans to hit the road right after he hits the stage in Las Vegas on Feb. 11, 2024.

Usher reacted with excitement after the halftime performance was revealed to the world.

“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,” he said. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

Usher, who famously serenades women at his shows, avoided confrontation at his latest one. At his Sept. 24 show, while singing in front of Gabrielle Union, he stops himself from his usual routine when standing in front of her husband, NBA Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade. As he stops singing, he tells the crowd, “Let’s not get carried away. Y’know, this is Dwyane Wade—I ain’t crazy! That man will knock my whole head off and then dunk it!”

After drawing laughter from the audience, Usher and Wade hugged before the singer told the crowd that he would stay out there with them.
