The best memes from Usher's Super Bowl halftime show (6)


Usher's Super Bowl halftime show had it all: a setlist stuffed with hit songs, special guests, outfit changes, slick choreography, and even roller skating.

Before Usher took the stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, a "warning" from Apple Music teased a performance that could cause singing, dancing, sweating, and more. But what fans didn't predict is that Usher's 13-minute performance would provide fodder for numerous memes.

Here are the best jokes from the halftime show.

Alicia Keys was the first special guest who joined Usher. Her voice cracked at the start of "If I Ain't Got You" — and it didn't go unnoticed.

As Usher started performing "U Got It Bad," he removed his jacket and his white tank — eliciting cheers from the crowd. His dance moves also inspired some memes.

Five-time Grammy winner H.E.R. shredded the electric guitar — but some people confused her with 10-year-old North West, Kim Kardashian and Ye's daughter.

Usher sang and danced along to "OMG" following an intro from — while gliding across the stage on roller skates. It was a highlight of the show.

If you never illegally downloaded any of tonight’s songs from limewire, I don’t want your opinion on the halftime show.

But people were also concerned for the man in the blue shirt who was thrown into the air during "Turn Down for What."

Many fans suspected that Justin Bieber, who previously collaborated with Usher, would dust off his purple Supras and appear onstage. Much to the disappointment of Beliebers, he stayed seated in the crowd with his wife, Hailey Bieber.

Even though Usher excluded some fan-favorite songs from his performance, people were pleased by his halftime show.

Usher’s superbowl performance 🤯🚀❤️ ….. bring back so much memories! Man is GOATED!!

— Davido (@davido) February 12, 2024

It wouldn’t be #BlackHistoryMonth without some #BlackExcellence at the Super Bowl! Usher shared the stage with so many Black musical icons, and featured performances by the Jackson State University’s Sonic Boom of the South and the brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi! 👏🏿

— Ben Crump (@AttorneyCrump) February 12, 2024

Usher is singing, dancing, and skating with a live open mic.. Not depending on tracks - but actually singing, dancing, and skating live…Some people can’t comprehend the amount of hard work, dedication, and focus — it takes to achieve this level of excellence… Yes,…
