Usher will belt out his hits at the Super Bowl in February 2024, the NFL announced Sunday.

“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,” the Grammy-winning singer said in a statement. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

The halftime show will be produced by DPS and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

“Usher is the ultimate artist and showman. 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,” said Jay-Z. “His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.”

Usher, 44, has sold more than 80 million records worldwide and won dozens of awards.

Following the announcement, fans on social media chimed in saying they want to see the singer perform his classic hits, including “Yeah!” featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris.

Usher is currently headlining a residency in Vegas.

Super Bowl LVIII takes place at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024.

Earlier this year, the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show starring Rihanna became the most-watched halftime performance of all time, the NFL said.

The performance received five Creative Arts Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Variety Special (LIVE).
