The 'Yeah!' singer recalls nearly suffering from huge disaster when his hand 'got caught in the wire' while he was suspended high in the air at the Super Bowl with Black Eyed Peas.

AceShowbiz - Usher opened up about a terrifying technical mishap during his last performance at the Super Bowl. The pop star - who is set to headline the 2024 Super Bowl LVIII half time show in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 11 - previously performed during the big game back in 2011 as a special guest during the Black Eyed Peas' set - and he's revealed he narrowly avoided disaster when his hand got caught up in a wire which was suspending him above the stage.

"Oddly enough, there was a moment that only I think I remember. My hand got caught in the wire that was holding me 30 feet in the air and I almost missed my first mark. I was like, 'Oh my God. Don't let this malfunction cause me to miss something,' " he told Entertainment Tonight.

Usher went on to insist the scary moment has made him determined to avoid any errors when he hits the stage to headline this year's halftime show. He added, "It made me really passionate about eventually getting this moment that I'm getting ready to have. But it was really fuelled by being able to be in that moment with the Black Eyed Peas."

He went on to say of his big gig, "Sometimes affirmations and words of confirmation isn't enough. You have to put in the work ... This is just really a testament of dedication."

"I don't have this moment by myself. All of my fans that I bring with me, each and every person that had anything to do with the music, the creativity, everybody is a part of this celebratory moment. What I feel is that this is only the beginning."

It comes after the "Yeah!" hitmaker teased that viewers can expect to see him do some different stunts that he's never done onstage before, as well as incorporating moments from his residency into his 13-minute performance.

In an interview with Apple Music's Nadeska Alexis, he said, "I thought about a few moments that were special in dance, I thought some things I created here in Las Vegas, like skating, and doing things that I've not done on stage up until this point, to be able to share that with the world. "

"For everybody that heard about my show in Las Vegas, you're not going to get a chance to see some of what I did here but you're going to see the best of it because it's in front of 60,000 people in this room and hopefully another 180 million people for the world to see."
