5 Cameos From Usher’s Super Bowl Half Time Show That Had Us Vibing To The Beat

From Jermaine Dupri to H.E.R., and Alicia Keys, these artists filled the stadium with Black Excellence.

The performance we had been anticipating occurred last night, and we can't stop talking about it. Usher Bowl took over Sin City with his smooth dance moves, iconic tunes, and sexy swag. 

His performance was amplified with various artists from the Hip Hop and R&B world that had us on our toes and singing along to the beat the entire 13-minute set.

Not only was the ATL in the building, but the concrete jungle was also in full effect. This brotha even nodded to Kappa Alpha Psi when he began to stroll.

If you missed it, baby, you missed what might be dubbed one of the most electrifying Super Bowl halftime performances of all time.

Here are five cameos from Usher's set that made us wake up saying, "OMG!"

  • Alicia Keys

    The piano! The keys! The dress! Alicia Keys made that 88-key instrument talk! Each moment topped the next and seeing our "Boo" singing "My Boo" with Keys, definitely had us in our feelings.

  • H.E.R.

    The way H.E.R. handles a guitar is too much for any ordinary stage, so she had to take her skills to the Super Bowl! She went all in and left no crumbs, cuz Sis ate that!

  • Jermaine Dupri

    You can't get more ATL than Jermaine Dupri. He kept the crowd hype as Usher began to sing lyrics to his hit 2004 single "Confessions II," which was co-produced by the Atlanta super producer.

  • Lil Jon

    Turn down for what?! Lil Jon had the crowd turned up to the max, literally. This hip-hop legend was in the audience before he hopped on stage.

  • Ludacris

    This brotha brought his iconic afro out for the occasion, and we ain't mad at him. At one point, Luda rocked a pair of dark sunglasses which had us thinking we were back in 2001.
