We’re still about 5 months away from when the NFL typically announces who the year’s Super Bowl halftime performer will be, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate and talk about who we’d love to see on one of music’s biggest stages! Turns out, Atlanta’s own, Usher, would like to throw his name in the ring.
In a recent interview, one of the greatest voices of our time said, “I’d be a fool to say no. Well, I mean, you know, things line up that we would all hope. You know, one day that moment will happen.”
Although he’s never had a shot at headlining the Super Bowl halftime show, he made an appearance back in 2011 during the Black Eyed Peas set to perform “OMG” with will.i.am.
While many question whether or not he’d be able to carry a show of this stature by himself, Usher believes he’s more than capable and that he definitely has the hits to boot. Usher says, “What I am thankful for is the fact that there’s even any conversation about me, period. I feel humbled that at this age and this juncture of my life, people still have to ask the question after all of the No. 1’s that I’ve had and all the diamond-selling songs, that I have enough records to perform 15 minutes.”
