Jackson performed at the 1993 Super Bowl halftime show, which many consider one of the greatest of all time and which completely changed the way the halftime show was perceived.

‘It absolutely revolutionized the experience like no other. “It changed the way people perceived the halftime show,” Usher said.

He added that before bringing on Jackson, “it was just about hiring, you know, local artists or whatever.” “I really respected him.”

Usher added that The King of Pop’s 1993 performance “became a big inspiration behind some of the things I chose to do with this show.”

The single glove became such an iconic part of Jackson’s personality that fans eventually shelled out thousands of dollars for one of his gloves.

In 2010, an unspecified buyer shelled out a whopping $190,000 for one of the pop icon’s gloves.

Jackson was just 34 years old at the height of his career when he performed at halftime of Super Bowl XXVII on January 31, 1993.

The show would become one of the most-watched events in American television history with an almost incredible 133.4 million viewers.

When asked about conversations he had with Jackson before he passed away in 2009, Usher said there was “an admiration for what I do as an artist.”

“He didn’t really say much. “Whenever we had conversations, they were pretty brief, but what he did tell me was that he appreciated the fact that I’m a singing and dancing guy and the fact that that’s not an easy thing to do.” Usher added.

‘It was almost like he was telling me to keep it authentic. And I struggle with that, because sometimes I absolutely want to have more support, so I add extra funds and things like that, but it really separates me from the experience that I want to have with my fans and what I want to offer them. —Usher added.
