Usher Is Set To Fill The Coveted Halftime Slot At The 2024 Super Bowl

The 2024 Super Bowl is shaping up to be another show-stopping performance.

The Super Bowl is notorious for attracting global audiences with its halftime performances (and, of course, the football game itself), and 2024 is no exception.

As well as being the final game in the National Football League (NFL) season, the Super Bowl has become an icon of the music world, with one lucky artist selected each year to fill the coveted halftime slot. 

Usher has been bestowed with the honour for 2024, and if his past performances are anything to go by, it’s set to be another stellar halftime show.

“It’s an honour 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,” the singer said of the announcement. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

We’ve been waiting with baited breath for the announcement since Rihanna made her return to live music at the 2023 game (and pregnant, no less). The year before, the game saw Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and 50 Cent take to the stage.

So while we mentally prepare ourselves for what will no doubt be another iconic halftime show, below, everything you need to know about catching the 2024 Super Bowl from Australia.

Who Is Playing At The 2024 Super Bowl?

Usher won’t be the only global superstar attending the Super Bowl, there are rumours that Taylor Swift may make a mad dash from her final Eras Tour date in Japan to see her boyfriend and his team, the Kansas City Chiefs, take the field in Las Vegas.

The Kansas City Chiefs will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the 2024 Super Bowl. The Chiefs coasted in with a win against the Baltimore Ravens 17-10, while the 49ers game was much closer, clinching the win over the Lions, 34-31.

When Is The 2024 Super Bowl?

The Super Bowl will take place on Sunday, February 11 at Allegiant stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s the first time the city – and Nevada as a whole – have hosted the big game.

For those of us tuning in from Australia, that will be Monday, February 12.
