Usher is gearing up for his big Super Bowl halftime performance next month. Sources close to the perfomer are now sharing just how exactly he is prepping. 

In a conversation with the Sunday Mirror, a source says Isher has reportedly given up all sugar and alcohol to get ready for "the performance of his life." 

“The Super Bowl has always been on Usher’s bucket list and he wants to be in the best shape to give the performance of his life to the 100 million-plus people watching. He has quit all sugar and alcohol and is rehearsing endlessly,” the source said.

Usher has been patiently waiting his turn to perform at the nation's biggets sporting event. In a conversation with Apple Music's Zane Lowe he shared his anticipation for this moment.

"I think being able to see performances from artists like Michael [Jackson], you know, eventually Prince, and then even more modern-day artists... I was like, 'Man, at some point I need to get a call with what's going on now,'" he recalled..

"But I'm really happy that I'm joining that short list of legacy artists from my genre who deserve this moment. And I'm really happy that Jay-Z and also Roc Nation really put thought into making certain that they could bring to the world this kind of experience. It is definitely going to be a moment to remember."
