Another of the artists who could step on the performance stage at halftime of the NFL final would be Justin Bieber. This is how he explained it TMZ: “Usher approached Bieber about that possibility. We’re told there were no advisors involved on either side and they spoke directly to each other.”

Who does seem to be ruled out on the list of artists rumored to perform with Usher is J Balvin. Basically due to an incompatibility of agenda since the Colombian had a performance scheduled at the Brazilian carnival before the artist invited him to participate in the Super Bowl.

In the discography of the American artist we find albums of very different genres with different spirits but with the same passion for their sound. And in many of them, an artist or collaborator who has made his legend even greater. Now we only have to wait a few minutes to discover what surprises the 2024 Super Bowl has in store for us in front of more than 72,000 live viewers and more than 300 million on television.

“It will definitely be a huge event. There will be special guests. And I’ve considered new songs. But you know, it’s 12 to 15 minutes. So it’s really hard to determine which moment matters more than others, especially with a new song. Then there’s the dancing, the costumes, the lighting, how long you stay in a song, the fact that the audience can sing along… It’s a lot. So I’m doing my best not to think about it too much,” said the interpreter.
