Usher has everything ready for his Super Bowl halftime performance. This Sunday, the singer will perform at the game that will take place at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where the San Francisco 49ers will face the Kansas City Chiefs.
The artist will try to review his three decades of career focusing on his successes. ”It was definitely a challenge to squeeze 30 years into 13 minutes,” the artist highlighted in a press conference.
“What songs do people know me by, what songs were a celebration of the whole trip?” Usher asked reporters. The American artist did not give any further clues about what his vision of his show will be like. What is known is that Usher will not be alone on stage. Like most Super Bowl performers, he will have guests and he suggested they would be people he collaborated with throughout his career.

“I think I made it easy for myself when I decided to include artists in songs that became hits. That gave me the most inspiration. I went through many ideas of who could spend this moment with me. “That doesn't cut it, given all the people I collaborated with, from Beyoncé to Monica to Nicki Minaj to Lil Jon.”
Usher was one of the guests at the Super Bowl, with the Black Eyed Peas leader, will.i.am, in 2011. In the next few hours the artist's new songs will be announced. “It is the honor of my life to add this dream to my list. I'm looking forward to putting on a show unlike anything you've seen from me before. Thank you to my fans and everyone who made this opportunity possible,” Usher said in statements published by the NFL in September, when his name for the show was announced.
