The 44-year-old won’t have to travel far from his “My Way” residency in Vegas, which ends December 2, to circle glide across the Allegiant Stadium stage.

Apple Music, the NFL and Roc Nation made the announcement on Sunday in the form of spoof videos that mimic the intro dialogue for Usher’s  “Confessions” visual. The “OMG” singer posted the video announcement dueted with Kim Kardashian on his Instagram profile. Deion Sanders, Odell Beckham and even Usher also shared clips that were posted on the companies’ social media platforms.

The legendary wave-wearing crooner joins the ranks of Rihanna, who performed her halftime 2023 show while preggers, and other stars like Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar.

“It’s an honor 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,” Usher shared. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

Seth Dudowsky, NFL Head of Music, said, “Usher is an icon whose music has left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape throughout his career, we couldn’t be more excited to have him headline this year’s Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show,”

He added, “We look forward to working with Usher, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another Halftime Show for the history books.”

The “You Got It Bad” singer earned endless praise from fans and famous peers for his showmanship during his Vegas residency. Jay-Z agrees the original Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl is the” ultimate artist.”

“Ever since his debut at the age of 15, he’s been charting his own unique course. Beyond his flawless singing and exceptional choreography, Usher bares his soul,” Jay-Z — born Sean Carter — said. “His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”

Usher fans celebrated that he will manifest his magic on stage at the nation’s biggest sporting event. Meanwhile, others have already started complaining.

One fan sparked a massive debate about whether he had enough mainstream appeal for the Super Bowl stage. Social media users spun the block with clapbacks to the comment.

Other corners of the internet seemed to agree with the heavily hated skepticism.

An X User wrote, “What a decline, who in the world listens to usher in 2023 .”

“Not my Half Time Performer,” another user tweeted.

Some X users suggested replacements for the Grammy winner.

One user typed, “We need carti or yb not this fraud”

The naysayers need to talk to their Aunties about Usher’s pany-throwing era. We’re sure Drake’s concert bra collection is incomparable to Usher’s fan undie drawer.

One X user believes the Cascade-skating crooner is more than deserving and gushed over the accomplishment, “Wow wow So amazing for Usher. He is 100% going to crush the Super Bowl half-time show!”

Another agreed, “This about to be the best halftime show of all time”

“The Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show is one of the most highly anticipated music events of the year and we’re excited to bring this legendary show to fans all over the world in Spatial Audio, along with tons of exclusive videos, interviews, playlists and so much more across Apple Music,” Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music, said in a statement.

“We are so proud of what we were able to accomplish together with the NFL and Roc Nation last year and now with the insanely talented Usher set to take the stage we’re looking forward to another incredible Halftime Show from one of the world’s all-time greatest performers.”

Usher’s performances are known for strippers, skating and his sultry dance moves. The entertainer will likely switch up his routine for middle America. It’ll be interesting to see how much of “The A” Mr. Raymond brings to the Bowl.

If the halftime show hits as hard as Usher’s legendary residency, it will solidify his spot as the King of Vegas, baby.
