The game is set to be played in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, 2024, and will air on CBS. Viewers will also be able to stream the game on Paramount+.
Prior to the game, McEntire, the legendary Country Music Hall of Famer, will sing the national anthem, Malone will sing “America the Beautiful,” and accomplished actor and Grammy-nominated singer Andra Day will sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Both will be produced and arranged by Emmy-winning musical director Adam Blackstone.
“I’m honored to be part of something as big and historic as the Super Bowl coming to Las Vegas for the first time!” Reba McEntire said on social media.
Usher will headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show. He said his preparation for the show is on “another level.” He will also release his ninth studio album, “Coming Home,” the same day.
Ahead of his performance, which will coincide with the release of his new album, Coming Home, the “Yeah!” star said he planned on leaning on previous experience to help prepare for the 13-minute set.
“I got a chance to see a bit of what it felt like,” Usher, 45, told The Associated Press, referring to his appearance during the Black Eyed Peas’ headline set in 2011, when he descended from the ceiling for a rendition of his hit single “OMG.”
Both the pre-game and the Super Bowl will feature American Sign Language performances. Daniel Durant (“Coda”), will sign the national anthem in ASL and dancer Anjel Piñero will sign “America the Beautiful.” Actor Shaheem Sanchez will sign “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Sanchez will also sign Usher’s performance.
“Don’t take the moments for granted because you only get 13 of them,” Usher said. “The hardest part is trying to figure out how to squeeze it all in when you actually have a large catalogue, or a lot of records people celebrate and love.”
