Everybody say, "Yeah!"

The NFL, Apple Music, and Roc Nation announced on Sunday that the pop star will take on the world's biggest stage on February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

They made the announcement with two playful promos featuring the singer on phone calls with Kim Kardashian and Colorado Coach Deion Sanders in a nod to one of his biggest throwback hits, Confessions.

"I heard the news. Super Bowl baby!" Sanders says.

"Man, quit playing with me," Usher replies.

"I don't play. I'm a coach now," Sanders jokes back. "I'm Coach Prime, and Coach Prime is always one step ahead," he added in his signature bragging style.

"I don't have time to play," Kim says in her reply to the call. "One, I'm busy. Two, you're doing the Super Bowl!"

"I've seen you in Vegas twice," she continues, in a nod to her outings seeing his current Las Vegas residency. "But this one's gotta be different."

Usher said in a statement: "It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list."

He promised fans the show would be "unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before."

The announcement comes after much speculation over which mega star would headline this year's Halftime Show.

Many fans believed it could be Taylor Swift, yet reports claimed she rejected the gig in addition to having scheduling conflicts with her next leg of The Eras Tour.

Chatter also threw Harry Styles and Miley Cyrus in the ring as possibilities for the 2024 headliner.

This will actually be Usher's second Super Bowl showing. He performed as a guest alongside headliner the Black Eyed Peas in 2011.

The pop and R&B singer has won eight Grammy Awards and sold 80 million albums over his three decades-long career in music.

Usher will have big shoes to fill after Rihanna announced her pregnancy at last year's Halftime Show, and 2022 saw a huge rap lineup headline in Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent.

Will Usher have some more famous friends join him when he takes on the Halftime Show in February? The betting has begun.
