The Super Bowl LVIII is the biggest event in the US sporting and music calendar and it’s happening tonight (11 February) at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The National Football League championship will be watched by millions across the globe, including American Football and Usher fans in the UK, who are preparing for another late finish into the early hours of Monday morning.

Last year Rihanna unveiled her pregnancy to the world while performing her halftime performance – a legendary slot filled by only the biggest A-listers in the world.

Throughout its 56-year history, the Super Bowl has hosted the likes of Beyoncé, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Madonna, and Bruce Springsteen.

This year Usher, 43, will be performing in the halftime break between the sporting action, and he will be joined by a variety of special guests, according to the Yeah! hitmaker.

But with all the action happening in Nevada – unless you’re lucky enough to have a ticket and a private jet like Taylor Swift – how can you watch the Super Bowl 2024 in the UK, and what time should you be tuning in?

Here is your guide to watching the Super Bowl and Usher’s halftime performance from the comfort of your home.

What time is the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show?

The Super Bowl game between Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers kicks off at 11.30pm UK time.

If you’re only interested in the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show, aka, Usher’s performance, you should tune in by 1am, 12 February in the UK.

How to watch the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show in the UK?

You’ll be able to watch all the action unfold on ITV1. US fans will be able to watch the broadcast on CBS.

How long will the Super Bowl halftime show last?

American Football games are split into four 15-minute quarters, meaning that the actual game time is one hour long.

However, due to all the stoppages with the stopping and starting of the game clock, NFL games actually last for an average of 3 hours and 12 minutes.

It is likely that the Super Bowl will not finish until at least 2.30am on February 12 for the UK audience.

Halftimes in the regular NFL season typically last between 12 and 13 minutes.

However, due to the significance of tonight’s championship, halftime is expected to last between 20 to 30 minutes, with Usher’s performance taking 12 to 15 minutes.

Usher will have to cram his greatest hits – including DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love, Hey Daddy, OMG, and Love in this Club – into this short window, while also making room for possible surprise guest appearances…

Could Justin Bieber be performing alongside Usher at the Super Bowl halftime show?

Usher confirmed during an interview with Billboard on Wednesday that there would definitely be ‘special guests’ in tonight’s halftime show.

Rumour has it Justin Bieber will make an appearance alongside Usher.

Justin stepped back from performing after he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome in June 2022, a rare neurological disorder which attacks nerves in your ears, and can lead to facial paralysis.

The diagnosis eventually led to Justin cancelling his remaining Justice World Tour dates, which were scheduled to run until March 2023.

If anyone could get the elusive Bieber up on the world stage it’s Usher, who has served as a sort of mentor for the 29-year-old Love Yourself singer throughout his career.

US outlet TMZ reported Usher and Justin had been in direct contact about the potential collaboration.

The Peaches singer made a shock return to the stage for the first time in over a year last month in his native Canada.

It’s also been reported Alicia Keys will be taking to the stage to sing alongside Usher on their shared 2004 hit My Boo.
