Usher packed his 30-year career into a 13-minute halftime performance at Super Bowl 58 on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas with help from Alicia Keys, Lil Jon, Ludacris and more.
Usher, 45, kicked off the halftime show in style with showgirls by his side while singing the 2004 hit “Caught.” He first shed a robe before going shirtless entirely. H.E.R. also took the field with a guitar solo as he made a costume change into a purple and black suit with roller skates.
He skated in circles around the stage alongside his backup dancers before Lil Jon made a surprise appearance, singing “Turn Down for What” and “Yeah” with Usher..
Ludacris, who like Lil Jon was wearing shoulder pads, joined them as the crowd’s energy slowly increased.

Alicia Keys joins Usher for halftime show
Keys was the first guest to join Usher and she surprised the crowd by singing “If I Ain’t Got You” and a bit of “My Boo” while playing a red piano.
Usher then hugged Keys from behind and signaled at the crowd as if to say that she still is as good looking as ever before.
A marching band also stormed the field alongside Usher as he rushed through a ton of his catalog, making it one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows in recent memory.
