During his highly-anticipated Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, February 11, Usher welcomed a parade of famous friends to the stage including Alicia Keys, Lil John, and Ludacris to the stage in an epic medley of his many (many) hits.
The show it self was predictably a sight to behold, complete with jeweled thrones, armies of backup dancers, costume changes, roller skates, and—at one point—a very shirtless Usher gyrating like only Usher can.
As for Keys, she and Usher looked like the closest of friends during their sweet duet on “My Boo,” which came after she sang a bit of her hit “If I Ain’t Got You” at the piano wearing a bedazzled red catsuit. (Usher did hint before the show that someone special would be joining him on stage, and we can only assume that was Keys.)
“It will definitely be an event,” he told Billboard in the lead-up to the big game. “There are special guests.” He also basically guaranteed that we would be hearing “Yeah!”—one of his most iconic hits—which made Lil’ Jon and Ludacris, who appear on the track, prime contenders for a cameo.
