Usher attended the 2008 NFL Kickoff Press Conference yesterday in New York. He will be performing a series of songs from his latest album Here I Stand. Usher is supposedly performing “Here I Stand”, “Trading Places, and “What’s Your Name” with guest star Will.I.Am. Usher also doesn’t want to waste anytime and perform at the upcoming Superbowl in February:

“I don’t think it’s too early to consider it,” said Usher, “Certainly being associated with the organization makes that a lot more possible. There have been conversations for a lot of years about me being part of a performance at a Super Bowl.” Usher added. “I’m hoping that this leads, definitely, to that. This whole process is basically you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.”

The season will kickoff with a Washington Redskins Vs. New York Giants game. Tune in to the game today @ 3PM/ET. Check your local listings. Check out more pics below.
