Usher Fizzles In Super Bowl Halftime Show Despite Alicia Keys & Guest Stars Galore – Review

Usher had a lot of guests on-stage with him tonight in Las Vegas, but misread the stadium

With Taylor Swift in the 65,000 strong crowd at today’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas, Usher couldn’t have had any illusions about who had the greater star power and the media’s attention as he hit the field for the halftime show. In no small part, H.E.R.’s extended stint on stage at Allegiant Stadium unveiled the mechanics of the tonight’s halftime show as it was clearly intended mainly to give Usher enough time for a costume change and the opportunity to put on roller skates. Starting off with 2005’s “Caught Up” and moving meticulously through a hit heavy setlist that is one of the benefits of a 30-year career, Usher was joined by H.E.R., Alicia Keys, Lil’ John, Ludacris, the Black Eyed Peas’ plus army of dancers and Sin City showgirls and a full on marching band.
