Super Bowl halftime show 2024 live: Usher takes the stage as Taylor Swift watches on


Usher celebrated both his past and present when he headlined the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show tonight (11 February) at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada.

The R&B singer headlined the musical extravaganza with a troupe of dancers and special guests, performing some of his biggest hits from the past two decades.

The three-hour-long game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers is broadcasting live on CBS. UK fans will be able to watch the broadcast on ITV1.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is officially in the house, after racing from a show in Tokyo to get to the game in time to watch her boyfriend, Chiefs tight-end Travis Kelce, play. So far we’ve seen Post Malone perform “America the Beautiful” while country legend Reba McEntire perform “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

Taking some cues from Michael Jackson, Usher is putting on the performance of his lifetime, loaded up with spectacular costume changes, great dance moves and excellent vocals. I’m really enjoying how he’s mixing up the pop bangers with some of his most moving ballads.

Flashback: Taylor Swift and Usher perform ‘Yeah!’ in 2011

00:54 , Roisin O’Connor

Amid the frenzy over Swift’s presence at tonight’s game, a clip has resurfaced of the moment she was joined by tonight’s halftime show headliner, Usher, during her 2011 Speak Now tour.

The duo did a fun rendition of the R&B star’s 2004 hit at what was then known as the Philips Arena (now rebranded as the State Farm Arena), when Swift took on some of the rap verses in place of the track’s featured artists, Lil Jon and Ludacris.

Not long to go before Usher…

00:49 , Roisin O’Connor

If, like me, you have absolutely no idea what’s going on with the sport part of tonight’s event, you’ll be relieved to know that we’ve probably got between 10 to 20 minutes before Usher is due to take to the stage.

Ryan Gosling cries to Taylor Swift in Super Bowl teaser for The Fall Guy

00:33 , Roisin O’Connor

Ryan Gosling can be seen crying in his car to Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well” in a new teaser trailer for The Fall Guy, my trusty colleague Kevin EG Perry reports.

The forthcoming action comedy based on the 1980s television series of the same name, and stars Gosling as stunt man Colt Seavers (originally played by Lee Majors).

The cast of the new film, which is directed by Bullet Train’s David Leitch, also features British actors Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Hannah Waddingham, and US star Stephanie Hsu.

In one scene featured in the trailer, which aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday (11 February), Blunt’s character Jody, Colt’s ex-girlfriend, knocks on his window and asks whether he’s crying to Swift’s song, “All Too Well”.

“Doesn’t everybody?” Gosling’s character replies.

I’m saying nothing…

Sunday 11 February 2024 15:01 , Roisin O’Connor

The 58th edition of the Super Bowl will take place tonight (Sunday 11 February) at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Aside from the game itself, the biggest talking point of the Super Bowl is the halftime show, where some of the world’s most famous artists – from Bruce Springsteen to Katy Perry – have entertained fans at the stadium.

This time around, all eyes will be on Usher at halftime, as the R&B prepares to put on a spectacular event comprising his biggest hits.

Last year, Rihanna made jaws drop not only with her incredible performance, but with her shock pregancy reveal.

Meanwhile, 2022’s show was a hip-hop celebration, with joint headliners Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mary J Blige and Dr Dre.
