Usher lit up Las Vegas when he took to the stage as the headliner of the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show, and his list of guests was stacked.

The 45-year-old R&B superstar performed to a packed crowd at the Allegiant Stadium in Vegas that not only included the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers' fans and families, but celebrity attendees like Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani, Justin Bieber, and more.

Here are all the stars that the "Burn" hitmaker brought out for his long-awaited halftime show and walk down memory lane…

Alicia Keys

Usher brought out fellow R&B songstress Alicia Keys for a performance of their 2004 hit "My Boo," which became one of the most successful releases from Usher's seminal 2004 album Confession.

The show kicked off with Alicia in a sweeping red cape, which came off to reveal a stunning stoned red-hot catsuit as she performed a section of her own song, "If I Ain't Got You," before transitioning to their duet.

The song, which won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, is considered one of the best R&B duets of the aughts and remains one of the biggest hits for both artists.

But first, a surprise guitar solo from Oscar and Grammy-winning artist H.E.R., who most recently collabed with Usher on their 2024 track "Risk It All," which was part of The Color Purple's soundtrack.

Ludacris and Lil Jon

Usher closed out the halftime show with a bombastic introduction to rappers Lil Jon and Ludacris. The former came out first to get the audience pumping with a brief segment from his 2013 hit "Turn Down For What."
