Justin Bieber reportedly turned down Usher’s offer to join him in the 2024 Superbowl halftime show because he “wasn’t feeling it,” sources revealed. 

Days before the most-awaited show, speculations were going around that Bieber will be joining Usher's stage in the 2024 Super Bowl halftime show. According to Page Six’s report, a source from the music industry revealed that the Burn singer did offer him to join the stage, but the latter declined. However, the source clarified that "there's no bad blood" between the two.

“Justin just wasn’t up for it — he just wasn’t feeling it,” they said, adding that the Usher tried to convince Bieber because he “wanted to create a moment that paid tribute to their history together.” 

Bieber attended the event with his wife, model and entrepreneur Hailey Bieber cozying up in Michael Rubin’s private suite in Allegiant Stadium. 

A day after the show, the Peaches singer congratulated Usher on his Super Bowl stage. 

“LOVE YOU MY BROTHER. NOONE CAN SING AND DANCE THE WAY YOU DO,” he began in his Instagram post. 


The two met through record executive Scooter Braun, who first discovered the Baby singer on YouTube. Usher became Bieber's mentor, and the two formed a friendship through the years.

"I knew that this was a kid that was going to go very far. I took him to L.A. Reid and I said, 'Man, you are not going to believe the talent that I have come across. This kid is really like one in a lifetime glimpse at a prodigy or something incredible,'" Usher said in Good Morning America in 2009.

They also collaborated on Bieber's songs First Dance and Somebody to Love
