Usher’s Half Time Show Has Everyone Saying Same Thing

Super Bowl LVIII’s halftime show, headlined by R&B singer Usher, has received mixed reactions from fans, with many labeling it as ‘underwhelming.’ Despite Usher’s attempt to dazzle the audience with intricate choreography and hits from his iconic discography, social media users expressed their disappointment, finding the performance lackluster.

During the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show on February 11, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Usher was joined by notable artists including Alicia Keys, Jermaine Dupri, H.E.R., and will.i.am. The performance aimed to captivate with a mix of Usher’s classics and guest appearances. Alicia Keys performed “Superstar” and “Love in This Club” before joining Usher for “My Boo,” their hit from 2004. The show concluded with Usher, Lil John, Ludacris, and Jermaine Dupri performing “Yeah!,” paying tribute to their Atlanta roots.

Despite the star-studded lineup and Usher’s efforts, viewers took to social media to voice their opinions. Comments ranged from calling the halftime show “underwhelming” to questioning the rehearsal and sound check process. The sentiment was echoed across platforms, with fans expecting more from the highly anticipated performance.

Interestingly, Super Bowl halftime performers are not paid their usual fees for the event. According to USA Today, artists receive compensation based on the union scale, which is significantly lower than their typical earnings. The NFL covers all costs associated with the show but pays the performers’ union scale, a fact that surprises many considering the global exposure the event provides.

This year’s halftime show has sparked comparisons to previous performances, with fans and critics analyzing how Usher’s act measured up against past entertainers. Despite the mixed reviews, the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show will undoubtedly remain a topic of discussion among fans and analysts alike.
