When a disclaimer appeared before the R&B legend's performance warned against possible "Singing, dancing, sweating, gyrating," and "possible relationship issues," we knew we were in for a treat.
Sure enough, the Texas-born singer brought everything from acrobatics to break dancing, ballads and a rendition of 'My Boo' to the Allegiant Stadium, lighting up NFL's grandest stage with a host of special guests.
The eight-time Grammy Award winner didn't take to the stage alone of course, calling in help from will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Ludacris... and a pair of roller skates to add an unexpected spin on his greatest hits.
Eight minutes into the performance, Usher wasted no time in recreating one of his most-iconic moments from the 2000 Teen Choice Awards, showing off his shirtless physique to a rapture of screams from fans who were instantly transported back to the noughties.
Fans on X, formerly Twitter, had the best reaction to Usher's costume (or shall we say lack of costume) change. "Usher understood the assignment," penned one fan, as another wrote: "This is so important to me as someone who had the shirtless centerfold of Usher from Teen People magazine taped to the ceiling of her bottom bunk at summer camp."
