Usher brought out a ton of special guests for his Super Bowl Halftime show — most of whom were expected — but one person he didn’t trot out … Justin Bieber, who was in town.
The legendary R&B singer took the stage at Allegiant Stadium Sunday for the Super Bowl Halftime Show — and he put on a medley for the ages … going through all his biggest hits, including ‘Caught Up,’ U Don’t Have to Call,’ ‘Superstar’ … and eventually, ‘My Boo.’
Alicia Keys came out and started singing ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ on the piano … and then transitioned into her duet with Usher, and it certainly stood out as a major moment.
Jermaine Dupri also came out and helped Usher sing ‘Confessions’ — and that transitioned into ‘Nice & Slow,’ and then ‘Let It Burn’ right after that. And finally, ‘U Got It Bad.’ It was during this part that Usher went shirtless and was joined by H.E.R. who did a guitar solo.
Usher came back out and started skating onstage alongside Will.I.Am … and they did their hit ‘OMG’ — with a bunch of other backup dancers/skates who were spinning circles around ’em.
Lil Jon was the next big guest … and this led into perhaps Usher’s biggest hit, ‘Yeah,’ He put on an incredible dance number. Luda eventually came out as well and rapped his verse too.
It was a great show, obviously — but it was surprising that Usher didn’t bring out Bieber, as many expected him to be there … y’know since he was literally there in Vegas this weekend. Plus, as we reported — Usher and JB had been in direct talks in recent weeks about this.
Guess the dude wasn’t up for it after all .. in any case, it was a halftime show for the ages!
Usher held his own and then some — who says he was gonna be upstaged by T-Swift?!?
