The NFL announced in September that eight-time Grammy-winning artist Usher would perform at the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show. The NFL has once again brought in another artist who is a global superstar with experience and isn’t considered a current up-and-comer.
Usher appeared in the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2011 alongside The Black Eyed Peas, so he’s no stranger to this spotlight. He will follow Rihanna, who gave an incredible performance last year.
Rihanna sang a total of 12 songs during her set while she and the performers balanced on platforms hanging from the roof of State Farm Stadium in Arizona. She delivered one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows in recent memory.
Usher faces the arduous task of following Rihanna, but expect him to deliver when he headlines the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show on Feb. 11. Usher’s lyrics and dance routines have solidified his standing as one of the best entertainers of this generation.
“I didn’t get there by myself. So everybody that has been a part of it … I’m carrying you when I walk on that stage that night.”

We all want to know the answers to what songs Usher will sing during the halftime show. It’s not often you can bet on a music performance, but the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show is one of them. The Super Bowl 58 betting odds provide multiple markets for Usher’s halftime show, including what will be the first song performed, how many songs will be performed, how many guests will appear and many others.
The 45-year-old is adding a career milestone. Usher has a deep bag of hit singles he can pull out and perform. The halftime show will last roughly 13 minutes, and we should expect the Grammy Award winner to captivate the audience with some special guests. So, what songs will Usher sing?
Usher Halftime Show Songs
One of Usher’s most recognizable songs will certainly be played to boost the energy throughout Allegiant Stadium. We could even see guests Lil’ Jon and Ludacris join the stage for this former No. 1 hit on the Billboard charts. I predict he will close the show with “Yeah.” The Las Vegas odds agree – “Yeah” is -1000 to be his last song.
“Love In This Club”
Another special guest could appear if Usher performs this lead single from his fifth album in 2008. Rapper Jeezy is featured on this hit that would also go on to reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
“DJ Got Us Fallin In Love”
One of Usher’s most successful singles worldwide from 2010 featuring Pitbull is another track we should expect to hear and possibly see Pitbull as his guest.
“Confessions, Part II”
Usher became one of the best R&B artists of all time, and this is one of the songs that made him so highly regarded in this genre.
“You Make Me Wanna”
Usher burst onto the music scene as a teenager. He had the voice, the looks and the dance moves to captivate all the girls. This would be one of his biggest throwbacks to his early career.
Sin City is known for its party life and energy. This song brings it to the stage.
If the performance has a female guest, it will be Alicia Keys for this song. This was one of the biggest duets of the 2000s and brings a mid-tempo feel to the show.
This hit single didn’t have as much success as others on the set list, but “Climax” is one of Usher’s most beloved songs over the last 15 years. He will display his killer vocals for this slow-tempo song.
“U Got It Bad”
The beginning of this song is what I’m expecting to be played as it hits with a great melody and drumbeat that all Usher fans can gravitate to.
