There are a lot of people that watch the “Big Game” solely for the halftime performance, or for some, the commercials that fill the time in between the football being played (even though the commercials have really dropped off in recent years).
It’s usually an honor to be selected as the performer of the halftime show, and in recent years, the likes of Rihanna, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, The Weeknd, and Shakira and Jennifer Lopez have graced the stage.
The halftime show is usually reserved for the best of the best, and with the recent announcement of this year’s Super Bowl musical performer, fans aren’t sure how to feel about it.
The NFL just announced that R&B singer Usher will be the halftime performance for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas in a video that features Colorado head coach and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders:
And though there are some that are skeptical of the decision to bring Usher on as the Super Bowl halftime performer, there are a lot of that are looking forward to the “flash from the past” and what the musician and dancer can do for his performance.
Like every Super Bowl performance, I’m sure it’ll be a mixed bag of nostalgia, confusion and criticize:
Absolutely thrilled to anticipate Usher setting the stage ablaze at Super Bowl LVIII! Expect a phenomenal blend of dynamic tunes and vibrant energy, transforming halftime into a memorable musical extravaganza right in the heart of Las Vegas!
