Usher took centre stage at the 2024 Super Bowl LVIII halftime show, donning a striking bejewelled outfit by Dolce & Gabbana that quickly became a fashion highlight.
At 45, Usher graced the stage in a dazzling white ensemble. He wore a gem-trimmed coat reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s iconic style, paired with crystal-adorned white gloves and a statement crystal brooch.
Throughout his performance, Usher transitioned through various looks, from removing his suit jacket to unveiling a glittering silver shirt to eventually performing shirtless, captivating the audience with a medley of his hits.
Alicia Keys joined him on stage, dressed in a red, gem-encrusted catsuit from the same Italian designer, adding to the evening’s star-studded performances. Usher later switched to a black and blue crystal-studded outfit, collaborating with artists including Will.i.am, Lil Jon, and Ludacris.
Announced in September with a promotional video featuring Kim Kardashian, Usher described headlining the Super Bowl as a lifetime achievement and promised a performance unlike any other.
This Super Bowl appearance marks Usher’s second, following a guest spot in the Black Eyed Peas’ 2011 halftime show. Beyond his Super Bowl preparations, Usher also featured in a Skims underwear campaign, showcasing the brand’s men’s collection.
Known for his meticulous grooming, Usher has shared his go-to skincare favourites, from a cult-favourite spray to Chanel cream, essential for his stage appearances.
Furthermore, Usher and his long-term partner, Jennifer Goicoechea, recently obtained a marriage license in Las Vegas, hinting at another significant event following the Super Bowl.
