Who is performing with Usher at the Super Bowl halftime show?

The trailer for Usher's Super Bowl halftime show dropped on Apple's YouTube channel in January. Later, days ahead of the big show, Apple dropped another promo for the Super Bowl's highly-anticipated halftime performance. The short film, which stars Taraji P. Henson, Ludacris, and Lil Jon, is titled "Where's Usher?"

In it, we see the trio encounter a host of characters on their mission to find the R&B crooner, who has gone missing in Las Vegas, and get him to the field in time for the big show. "Luda lost Usher," Taraji says at the start of the video.

The promo teases songs like "Yeah," and "Let It Burn," so it's likely he'll perform those. As for supporting acts, Usher has more than a few options.

Along with Luda and Lil Jon, the singer has worked with Alicia Keys, Summer Walker, Jay-Z, and Beyoncé, and more, so, his options are plentiful.

“I have definitely went through a lot of ideas of who I would have share this moment with me and I do feel like the people who are gonna share it deserve just as much recognition for what they do in their careers," the rapper told the press (per Page Six.)

He went on: "Whether we have collaborated together or rather they’ve had moments of their own."
