After months of anticipating Usher’s set list, the R&B crooner transitioned through a medley of his most beloved jams from “You Don’t Have To Call” to “Yeah!”

Usher’s Super Bowl halftime show was jam-packed with memorable moments and guest appearances. Jermaine Dupri (who is catching a smidgen of slack for his outfit choice), musician H.E.R, Ludacris and Lil’ Jon added to an already stellar performance. H.E.R’s rousing electric guitar performance, during “Nice & Slow,” was #Blackgirlmagic personified. It was a display of her talent that seemed to know no bounds. She is the moment.
