Justin Bieber fans are livid that he didn’t join Usher for at the Super Bowl 2024 for his star-studded Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show.
Rumors swirled that the 29-year-old crooner may be joining the 45-year-old headliner on the field and earlier this week TMZ even reported that Usher “has been hitting up Justin Bieber lately to talk about the prospect of JB joining him during the Super Bowl Halftime Show … which now sounds like a very real possibility. Still no word on whether Justin agreed—but we know they’ve been chatting …A LOT.”
The 29-year-old was spotted shortly before the halftime show began in the stands, sitting with his wife, Hailey Bieber giving fans hope that he might join the “Confessions” singer for the big show but, sadly to the dismay of Bieber fans everywhere, he never made it to the field and many viewers were so devastated they flocked to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to share their dismay.
“lets laugh at all the women who thought justin bieber was coming out,” one person quipped.
“usher brought all those people on stage and not one of them was justin bieber,” another fan lamented.
A fourth fan simply stated, “No Justin Bieber during Usher’s halftime show” with a meme of a man destroying a a flat screen television in anguish.
Instead Usher was joined by the likes of Alicia Keys, Ludacris, Lil Jon, will.i.am and H.E.R. at Super Bowl LVIII, held in Las Vegas’s Allegiant Stadium.
“You know, this has been an amazing year ramping up to this,” Usher told The Post’s Chuck Arnold of his “My Way” Las Vegas residency that finished at the Dolby Live-Park MGM in December after 17 months and 100 shows.

In 2010, Usher and Bieber collaborated for Bieber’s track, “Somebody to Love.”
“He’s like a child to me, so I don’t necessarily feel like it’s business, you know what I’m saying? I feel like I’m talking to someone who has had hardships,” Usher told Howard Stern. “If your child ever has difficulties, every person who’s listening to this s—t right now understands that nobody’s perfect. You’re gonna have moments. And if he does, I can only show him the reality of what has happened … of course we’ve had stern talks.”
While most performers only have 13 minutes to show off their entire music catalog during the halftime show, Usher actually managed to get an extra two.
“I can’t explain why, but it’s a funny thing that I was able to do and craft,” Usher told Entertainment Weekly. “That was a huge strategic thing that happened between me and my agency.”
This week Usher also announced his “Past Present Future Tour,” which begins on August 20-21 at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. and wraps up with a three-night run on October 28-29 and Oct. 31 at Chicago’s United Center.
