Super Bowl halftime performer Usher takes his shirt off and brings out Alicia Keys for a star-studded performance
Usher took the stage at the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show.

He started with an early hit of his series, “My Way,” and continued to cycle through other popular songs, only taking a break when he introduced guest Alicia Keys, who started her some of the performance by singing at the piano.

There were several dancers to complement the musical numbers. At another point during the show, pole dancers took the stage.
