Usher put on a star-studded Apple Music Super Bowl VIII Halftime headline set, including special appearances from Alicia Keys, H.E.R., Lil Jon, Ludacris, Will.i.am and Jermaine Dupri.

The 'R'n'B superstar pulled out all the stops for his performance halfway through the major sporting spectacle at Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium on Sunday (11.02.24).

The 45-year-old singer kicked things off with mega-hit 'Caught Up' into 'U Don't Have to Call'. A snippet of 'Superstar' then aired before he went straight in with another fan-favourite in 'Love in this Club'.

Then it was time for the first guest of the set, Alicia, who joined Usher for an electrifying rendition of their 2004 hit 'My Boo' after performing her own track 'If I Ain't Got You' first.

To mark the 20th anniversary of Usher’s seminal album 'Confessions', rapper Jermaine introduced 'Confessions Part II'.

Usher also performed 'Burn' from the album and was then joined by H.E.R. for 'Bad Girl'.

Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am was the next guest for their 2010 hit 'OMG'.

As promised, Usher brought a piece of his 'My Way' residency to the Super Bowl, as he hopped on rollerblades to perform 'Yeah!' alongside Lil Jon and Ludacris.

Usher was also joined by Jon for his and DJ Snake's hit 'Turn Down for What' right before 'Yeah!'.

Usher had already teased Jon and Ludacris would be joining him onstage.

He said at a press conference: “I would be a fool to not play ‘Yeah!’

“Let’s just start there. It would be foolish to make it all the way to Las Vegas—Jon is here, Luda’s here—and not play ‘Yeah!’”

The Kansas City Chiefs fought to beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 during overtime in an intense showdown.

Country icon Reba McEntire performed the National Anthem, 'Star-Spangled Banner', rapper Post Malone did a rendition of ‘America The Beautiful' and soul singer Andra Day wowed with ‘Lift Every Voice And Sing'.
