Atlanta was the real winner of Super Bowl LVIII

Super Bowl LVIII, held Feb. 11, didn’t disappoint when it came to drama and flair; the first two quarters saw the San Francisco 49ers score as the Kansas City Chiefs fumbled, but in the second half, the Chiefs came back to pull out a 22-25 win when the game went into overtime, a rare feat at the Super Bowl.

While the game was an exciting spectacle, Atlanta-based performer Usher was the MVP of the night, delivering a halftime show that celebrated all things A-Town.
Highlighting much of his impressive catalogue of hits throughout his halftime performance, Usher brought Atlanta to Las Vegas with everything from dancing the A-Town Stomp with Lil Jon to bringing out local legends Jeremaine Dupri and Ludacris as special guests, and even strapping on a pair of roller skates and busting a move in a giant roller rink (because, of course, the man can sing, dance, has six-pack abs, and can do it all while rolling on eight wheels).

With his high-energy, fast-paced halftime show, Usher reminded the world – or at least everyone tuning into the Super Bowl – that Atlanta is where some of the greatest talent, especially in hip hop, is born and bred.

Those wanting to see more of Usher’s talents on display may already have tickets to one of his three upcoming Past, Present, Future Tour shows coming up in Atlanta in October. But for those of us who won’t be lucky enough to see him when he rolls through, Coming Home, the artist’s first solo record in more than seven years, was released Feb. 9.
