Joined by Alicia Keys, who showcased her curvy body in a shimmering red bodysuit with a flowing cape, the duo reunited on stage to perform their infectious 2000s hit “My Boo.” Usher and Alicia’s chemistry was palpable. At one point, they embraced as they sang the romantic lyrics.

After months of anticipating Usher’s set list, the R&B crooner transitioned through a medley of his most beloved jams from “U Don’t Have To Call” to “Yeah!”

Usher’s Super Bowl Halftime Show was jam-packed with memorable moments and guest appearances. Jermaine Dupri (who is catching a smidgen of slack for his outfit choice), H.E.R., Ludacris and Lil’ Jon added to an already stellar performance. H.E.R.’s rousing electric guitar performance during “U Got It Bad” was #Blackgirlmagic personified. It was a display of her talent that seemed to know no bounds. She is the moment.

For his final song of the night, Usher assembled the crunk trio — himself, Lil’ Jon and Ludacris — to perform his biggest song, “Yeah!” with the Jackson State University marching band. Usher’s halftime show performance weaved in key elements of HBCU culture. Earlier in his set, he included a dance breakdown with Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity, Inc.

If Usher’s halftime show made you want more, the “Coming Home” singer announced his world tour and dropped a new album Friday, Feb. 9.
