Super Bowl 2024 latest: Taylor Swift’s several scene-stealing moments alongside Usher’s nostalgia-filled show

Usher celebrated both his past and present when he headlined the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show on (11 February) at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada.

The R&B singer headlined the musical extravaganza with a troupe of dancers and special guests, performing some of his biggest hits from the past two decades, in between one of the most nail-biting games in recent memory.

Taylor Swift was there with friends, including Blake Lively and Lana Del Rey, to cheer on her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, as his team beat the San Francisco 49ers in overtime. The pair shared a romcom-worthy kiss after the Chiefs scored a touchdown and won the game.

Meanwhile, Del Rey was “trampled on” after being knocked over while the VIP guests celebrated the Chiefs’ victory, which was attended by other famous faces including Sir Paul McCartney and Leonardo DiCaprio.

It was a successful night for the Chiefs – and Swift’s PR machine – but Kelce has faced criticism after shoving his Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid in a furious exchange.

How many outfits did Usher wear? If you were watching, you may have been in awe of the amount of costume changes throughout the 15-minute performance.

So, how did Usher do? The reviews are in...

Monday 12 February 2024 12:01 , Ellie Muir

In his review for The Independent, critic Mark Beaumont described Usher’s halftime show as “a fun, half-memorable mess”, praising the spectacle of roller-skating dancers but suggesting it failed to meet its potential.

“Despite the soft-centred smoothness of his opening R&B segment (‘Caught Up’, ‘U Don’t Have to Call’, a snippet of ‘Superstar’), he’s left a bit breathless by a bout of gentle grooving with his cane-twirling sidekicks,” the review said.

“None of his tunes land anything like a touchdown and, for something so monstrous of budget, the whole thing starts to feel underwhelmingly cabaret.”

This year’s Super Bowl halftime show by R&B star Usher has been hailed as “electrifying” by viewers on social media, even if Justin Bieber fans were left broken-hearted after the Canadian singer’s rumoured guest appearance failed to materialise.

By contrast, The Independent’s Mark Beaumont was less impressed. In his three-star review, Beaumont wrote that “in the end, Usher’s show seems like a fun, half-memorable mess. But, with the likes of Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney and Lana Del Rey watching on from the luxury boxes, it could have shifted so many more tour tickets”.
