Though 2024 will be Usher's first time headlining the famous halftime show, it won't be the first time the music entertainer performed on the halftime stage. In 2011, Usher joined the Black Eyed Peas halftime set to perform his chart-topping joint “OMG” with Will.i.Am!
FYI, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and the Las Vegas Raiders played a role in Usher getting the gig. As far as how Vegas was selected to host the game, here is how it all works. A city is selected to host Football's biggest night. The collaboration for the bid involved 32 clubs invited by the NFL to host Super Bowl LVIII. After a nearly one-year process, the bid was presented to and approved by the 32 clubs in Dallas. Steve Hill, CEO and president of the LVCVA said of next year's host city,
"Being named a Super Bowl host city is a defining moment in the history of Las Vegas," Hill continued, "An event of this magnitude combined with the energy of Las Vegas is going to be unmatched. Our entire city is committed to making Super Bowl LVIII the most electrifying sports spectacle ever. The NFL has been an incredible partner, and we look forward to working with their team, the Host Committee, and our partners across our destination to showcase Las Vegas as 'The Greatest Arena on Earth'."
