News Brief: Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Emma Hovan
Preferred performer! Even though many are excited for Usher to sing at the halftime show, some may be upset and wish that someone else is performing. Some would rather have had people like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus or Kendrick Lamar. Eighth grader Livi Adams said, “ I would be so much more excited if like Olivia Rodrigo or Tyler, the Creator, were singing at the super bowl.”

With the most highly anticipated day of the year in American sports approaching, fans are placing bets, ironing their favorite jersey and buying chips n dip. Amidst these preparations, one burning question remains: who will be headlining the halftime show this year?


According to an online article from,

“Following Rihanna’s show-stopping number last year, Grammy-winning singer Usher will take center stage as the headliner of the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show.”


If you don’t know anything about Usher, he is a R&B singer and pop artist. He is also an eight-time Grammy winner best known for his album “Confessions” as well as the song “Yeah!”


Don’t miss what promises to be an electrifying performance. Tune in to the Super Bowl LVII at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb.11, 2024.

    I’m surprised that Taylor Swift isn’t the halftime performance because of her boyfriend. But, I do like some of Usher’s songs. He’s cool. I think that it will be a really cool halftime prerformance, but Rihanna’s performance last year was amazing. I wonder if he can top that. I don’t like football (I don’t even know how it works) and I don’t watch the Superbowl, but I do like to watch the halftime show every year. I think it’s really fun. (I wish that Melanie Martinez or Ashnikko would be the halftime performance but I don’t think that they are popular enough for that yet)
