Usher has revealed a scary malfunction he experienced from the last time he played the Super Bowl Halftime Show.The singer last took to the stage as a surprise guest in 2011, when the Black Eyed Peas headlined the show.

However, in a press conference for his 2024 Super Bowl headline show, Usher revealed plans were about to go horrifically awry.Asked about his memories performing, Usher said: “Oddly enough, there was a moment that only I think I remember,” he said. “My hand got caught in the wire that was holding me 30 feet in the air and I almost missed my first mark.
I was like, ‘Oh my god. Don’t let this malfunction cause me to miss something.'”Viewers can see Usher’s hand stuck in the loop, as he struggles to take it off.
Luckily, the musician managed to remove himself in time for his a dance breakdown.Usher went on to reveal that once he finished performing with will.i.am, he remembered “how amazing it felt to be in front of that many people and feel the energy.”“So much so that it made me really passionate about eventually getting this moment that I’m getting ready to have,” he continued. “But it was really fueled by being able to be in that moment with the Black Eyed Peas.”Usher released his new album ‘Coming Home’ yesterday (February 9).
It marks his first full-length effort since 2016’s ‘Hard II Love’.Usher will also embark on the ‘Past Present Future’ tour, which will encompass 24 dates in the US.

Whitney Houston.Every time I hear someone on “American Idol” or “The Voice” attempt the impossible by singing one of her songs.Every time I hear “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” in a bar or club and watch generations of women and men — both gay and straight — shimmy and sing at the top of their lungs.And every Grammys since I was there in Los Angeles that weekend when she shockingly passed — at age 48 — the day before music’s biggest night on Feb. 11, 2012.But perhaps I miss Houston the most every single time that someone steps up to the mic to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl.

waaaaaaave?Reba McEntire’s rendition of the national anthem clocked in at 95 seconds (1:35) Sunday night at the 2024 Super Bowl.That was a middle-of-the-pack length, historically.
