Fans have been anxiously awaiting Usher‘s Super Bowl Halftime Show since it was announced back in September. It’s already been confirmed that his headlining slot will run two minutes longer than usual, or 15 minutes in total. It goes without saying that supporters have been curious about what they can expect to see during the show, and luckily, Usher recently provided them with some exciting new details.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Usher revealed that he’ll be performing a fan-favorite, and the longest-running No. 1 single of 2004, “Yeah!” As if that news wasn’t exciting enough, he also shared that his collaborators, Lil Jon and Ludacris, will be joining him for the performance.

“I would be a fool to not play ‘Yeah!’ let’s just start there,” he explained. “It would be foolish to make it all the way to Las Vegas, Jon is here, Luda’s here and not play ‘Yeah!’” At the time of writing, it’s unconfirmed whether or not they’ll also perform “Lovers & Friends.”
Ludacris and Lil Jon will certainly make the performance all the more explosive. They may not be the only ones joining the R&B icon onstage, however. A source recently chatted with TMZ and revealed that he’s also in talks with Justin Bieber about a possible appearance. Reportedly, the two of them have been in direct contact recently about the performance, though JB’s appearance is just a rumor for now.
