There is a lot of excitement and anticipation among fans about who could be the surprise performers joining Usher during the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show.
At the upcoming show in Paradise, Nevada, the R&B sensation has assured fans that they can expect some special guests and a performance that pays homage to both his past and present work.
Usher, a popular artist famous for his chart-topping songs such as “Yeah!”, “OMG” and “You Make Me Wanna...”, offered a sneak peek of what's in store for his fans during a press conference held by Apple Music in Las Vegas on Tuesday. He also hinted that there might be surprise appearances by notable guests such as Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber.
In 2014, Minaj and Usher teamed up to create the song "She Came II Give It II U".
Bieber and Usher have worked together on numerous occasions over the years, one of which was the song "Somebody To Love" released in 2010.
There have been sightings of Bieber in Las Vegas, accompanied by the Kardashian clan and his spouse Hailey. This has led to rumors that he might show up.
It appears highly probable that Lil Jon and Ludacris, the rappers, will make a special appearance together to perform their hit single "Yeah!" from 2004.
During his press conference, Usher mentioned: "It would be unwise if I did not perform 'Yeah!'", Usher stated. "In fact, let's begin with that song. It would be nonsensical to come all the way to Las Vegas and not perform 'Yeah!' especially with Jon and Luda here."
During a media briefing before the halftime exhibit of the Super Bowl 2024, Usher made an appearance.

According to Usher's anticipated lineup, these are the songs he might perform:
