There was a giant marching band, dancers on roller skates, a red piano, and a star-studded stream of stars joining Usher on the stadium stage during his 13-minute performance.
Who performed with Usher during the Super Bowl halftime show?
First up was Alicia Keys performing on a sparkling red baby grand piano to sing their duet, “My Boo.”
Next, was H.E.R. walking out playing a solo on an electric guitar with backup dancers and singers on roller skates while a shirtless Usher had a costume change, in which he, too, glided around the stage in skates.
Then the crowd went wild when Lil Jon appeared on stage singing a snippet of his “Turn Down for What” before Usher began to perform one of his biggest hits, “Yeah!” filling the stadium speakers.
Ludacris and will.i.am then joined the stage with Usher and Lil John to finish out the song as the R&B star danced amid a bedazzled crowd to close the show.
Usher spoke about what it meant to him to be in the Super Bowl halftime show, which he labeled as “One performance. 30 years in the making.”
