The Super Bowl 2024 halftime show is set to captivate audiences with a lineup that promises to deliver an unforgettable experience. Headlining the show is the Grammy-winning artist Usher, marking his triumphant return to the Super Bowl stage since his brief cameo in Super Bowl 45. This performance is particularly special as it is the first time Usher is headlining the event, showcasing his dynamic talent and extensive hit list to a global audience.
Joining Usher in this musical extravaganza is Alicia Keys, bringing an extra layer of star power to the halftime show. The collaboration between Usher and Alicia Keys is not new; they previously worked together on their hit “My Boo,” and their reunion on the Super Bowl stage is highly anticipated by fans worldwide.
However, the Super Bowl 2024’s entertainment lineup doesn’t stop there. Kaskade steps in as the game’s house DJ, filling the spot initially intended for Tiësto, who had to withdraw due to a family emergency. This change adds an electronic music dimension to the event, promising a diverse musical experience.
The pre-game performances are equally star-studded, featuring Reba McEntire singing the national anthem, a role she accepted with enthusiasm, underscored by the support of her football fan boyfriend, Rex Linn. Post Malone will perform “America the Beautiful,” contributing his unique style to the patriotic moment. Oscar-nominated actress Andra Day will sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” adding a touch of solemnity and celebration to the event.
Moreover, the Super Bowl will include American Sign Language (ASL) performances, ensuring accessibility and inclusion. Daniel Durant, Anjel Piñero, and Shaheem Sanchez will perform the national anthem, “America the Beautiful,” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing” in ASL, respectively, during the pre-game and halftime show, bridging the gap between the hearing and deaf communities.
This year’s Super Bowl halftime show at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium promises to be a celebration of music, featuring a blend of genres from R&B to pop, and electronic, ensuring there’s something for every fan tuning in. The inclusion of ASL performances further highlights the NFL’s commitment to accessibility and inclusivity, making the 2024 Super Bowl a truly universal event.
