Usher Rocks Super Bowl Halftime Show in Michael Jackson Inspired Outfit, Internet Loses It

A performance that did not disappoint, Usher rocks the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show while wearing a Michael Jackson-inspired outfit.

While on the halftime stage, the 45-year-old R&B star sang his hit tracks My Boo, Confessions and Yeah! His music guests were H.E.R., Alicia Keys, Will I Am, Lil Jon, and Ludacris. 

During the performance, Usher wore an all-cream Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, which consisted of a coat over a cropped bedazzled jacket with a brooch. He ended up ditching the coat and jacket before stepping off the stage for a quick outfit change. 

He then returned to the stage with a matching glove as a nod to Michael Jackson and performed Can You Feel It?

During the performance, X (formerly Twitter) was alive with both praise and criticism. “usher, lil jon, and ludacris being together again literally felt like the avengers assembling for the first time in a decade,” one X use wrote

Another user stated, “Usher gives a nod to Michael Jackson in his electrifying #SuperBowl performance, rocking the iconic one glove and also incorporating the ‘Can You Feel It’ mix.”

Many fans were irritated that Usher did not bring out Justin Bieber. “usher brought all those people on stage and not one of them was justin bieber,” one X user added.
