Super Bowl halftime performers rarely get paid.

Usher rocked the Super Bowl Halftime Show, but the superstar didn’t earn a superstar paycheck.

Most Super Bowl Halftime Show performers don’t earn anything for their performance.

At most, they earn a scale Screen Actors Guild payday of $1,000.

The real payday comes from having a performance watched by over 100 million people.

Also, the NFL foots the production bill for the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Usher’s special guests we’re Alicia Keys, Ludacris, and Lil’ Jon.

The multiple Grammy Award winner will perform two shows in Colorado.

Usher has scheduled shows at Ball Arena in Denver on Tuesday, Sept. 17, and Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Tickets go on sale Monday, Feb 12, at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com.
