Usher hints at epic Super Bowl throwback with Lil Jon & Ludacris

In his pre-Super Bowl appearance on Entertainment Tonight, the R&B artist hinted at some potential guests for his 13-minute performance at the upcoming sports event. He suggested that it would be a missed opportunity not to perform his hit 2004 song Yeah especially since the song's featured artists, Ludacris and Lil Jon, are currently in Las Vegas. He said, "I would be a fool to not play ‘Yeah!' let's just start there," Usher said. “It would be foolish to make it all the way to Las Vegas, Jon is here, Luda's here and not play 'Yeah!' ”

There's currently much speculation about who might join the Hey Daddy singer, especially since he hinted at mysterious guests for the big day. Usher recently talked about packing his 30-year career into just 13 minutes in an interview with Apple Music. "I gotta do it in 13 minutes, That makes it a bit difficult." He said.
