Yeah! is an Obvious Choice

If you’re looking to make a safe bet on the Super Bowl Halftime show props, taking Yeah! as the first performed song might be the way to go. The 2004 chart-topper featuring rappers Lil Jon and Ludacris is Usher’s most iconic song and a +225 favorite in the odds.

Usher rarely uses this song to open his sets, however, and the potential cameos of the two rappers have us hesitant to lay the chalk here. We project Usher will begin his performance with a single that he can sing on his own before transitioning into a potential collaboration.

Based on his previous setlists, the two songs Usher typically uses as his first song are “My Way” and “Monstar”. We’re going to go with the catchy 2010 hit “OMG”, however, which Usher tends to open with when the vibe is more of a party setting.

“OMG” features a very catchy beat and hook (“Oh my gosh” chant), which people can sing and dance along to. It seems like the perfect track to get fans into an upbeat mood, and the +1100 price makes it all the more appealing.

We’re picking OMG in our Super Bowl halftime show props, as it aligns well with first and last songs performed in Super Bowl history.

  • Usher First Song Pick: OMG (+1100)

Who Will Cameo At Super Bowl LVII?

Who might Usher bring on stage with him for his Super Bowl halftime show? Alicia Keys and Ludacris are both heavy favorites to cameo during Super Bowl LVII, and for good reason. They have both collaborated with Usher on hit songs such as “My Boo”, “Yeah” and “Rest of My Life”.

While you have to pay a hefty price, we think it’s very likely Alicia Keys will be brought on stage for the halftime show. The two artists have great chemistry and each revisited the song in 2022 on its 18th anniversary. Furthermore, Keys is no Super Bowl stranger, having sung the National Anthem before.

Nicki Minaj is someone we are surprised has favorable odds to appear, as she and Usher reportedly had some beef in the past. Despite collaborating on multiple songs, the relationship took a hit in 2020 when Usher called Nicki “a product of Lil Kim” in an interview. Minaj fired back by appearing to diss Usher’s herpes diagnosis in her song “Trollz”.

We love the value on Lil Jon at -102 as he and Ludacris are featured on Usher’s most popular song “Yeah!”. They often join him on stage to perform the song, as the high-energy beat lends itself well to a concert setting.

In terms of longshots, Taylor Swift reportedly said she won’t be performing at the event in any capacity, so you can rule her out. If available at your sportsbook, contemporary R&B star Chris Brown is a frequent special guest at Usher’s concerts and a nice longshot. The two often dance together on stage, and we could envision Usher bringing Brown out Sunday.

Super Bowl Cameo Picks:

  • Alicia Keys (-330)
  • Lil Jon (-102)
  • Chris Brown (longshot sprinkle)

This post will be updated will Usher last song odds and picks once the prop is available at sportsbooks.
