Being the most viewed musical performance of the year in America, the Super Bowl halftime show has always played a significant role in the annual NFL event.
Take a peek at the halftime spectacle from Sunday’s Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers game in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Eight-time Grammy Award winner Usher, who previously joined the Black Eyed Peas for their 2011 Super Bowl halftime show, will headline the halftime show.
The 45-year-old American singer has nine number-one hits in the United States and has sold 80 million albums worldwide since the launch of his debut album in 1994.
The main artist has not yet announced who might be joining Usher on stage as a special guest.
This year’s halftime show is sponsored by Apple Music, a streaming service that offers music, audio, and video content from Apple Inc.
They replaced Pepsi, who had sponsored Rihanna since 2013, as the sponsor for her performance last year.
On Sunday, February 11, the Super Bowl is slated to start at 6:30 p.m. ET. The halftime performance is anticipated to start between 8 and 8:30 p.m.
The event may be viewed on Paramount and will be shown live on CBS and Nickelodeon.
Before including drill teams and performing ensembles, the concert initially mostly featured college marching bands. However, everything changed in 1991 when the boy band New Kids on the Block performed as the major attraction.
A variety of acts were performed together at the turn of the century. 2000 saw the appearances of Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, and Toni Braxton; 2001 saw the reunion of NSYNC and Aerosmith.
